Re: DVD picture is black and white

Sounds like you are either trying to play an NTSC (US or Asian) DVD on a PAL (European) TV.

Go into the DVD settings and look for picture, video or display options.

If the DVD is set to NTSC, then set to PAL.

I have comcast cable serice. Do I have to hook up my dvd/vhs recorder to comcast box or just to my tv?

Your tv. You will use your tv "source" to select which input to watch from. Everything goes to the TV. I have a surround sound amp that I run the sound FROM the TV that way if I want it loud I turn that on. It is the only exception.

Rca model rtd3266 won't produce aux audio through the tv even though we have hooked up the red and white cables. It only playes the surround sound when you watch the dvd.

I believe you have misunderstood something. The audio output from your TV is stereo. Your RCA system produces surround output from your TVs stereo input.

Same as other poster: Player only plays black and white

It sounds like the circuitry which actuates the color drives for the screen are not working, this would ba analogous to adjusting for a B&W picture on a color TV you have color but the screen shows black and white. I would get a schematic for this set and measure the voltages on the color processor that connects to the screen since you know that the external jack has color. If possible I can help you troubleshoot this, if you need me to help out.

Black & white picture

Check input type on what ever you are viewing the DVD on. Sometimes there are menu settings on the TV ~ monitors.
