Component input makes all pictures black and white?
Hello I just found this website and I have a problem with my Mitsubishi WS-65809 65 in tv. I had my DVD player plugged into one of the component inputs on the tv. I went to watch a DVD one day and the picture was black and white. The weird thing is that it happened without the DVD player on. I know its not the DVD player because I plugged some of my other stuff into it and its still black and white.
Is this a permanent problem, or is it an easy fix.

You can also check to make sure you're on the correct TV input. I've
seen this happen if you use S-Video for example, and the TV is set to a
composite input by mistake. If you're using S-Video make sure the
yellow composite cable is unplugged.

Follow the color code green for green, red for red, blue for blue, ignore the yellow wire, also be aware that there is an audio cable that is red also that wire goes into the Right channel audio and the white wire goes to the Left channel audio
Just look in the antenna connections and all other connections for any loose; and make sure that all are firm. All found alright and still the problem perists, try retune the TV once more. Tuneing drifts will make this kind of fault. If it was, retuning will solve the problem. Make it autotune. Still the problem is ther, tuner inside your TV is faulty, and has to be replaced with same typwe and number. OK.
Try switching to a different cable provider. I have had many problems with their a/v boxes in the past and have found they aren't very compatible with most newer tv's. Time Warner/Comcast boxes have worked great for me.
Also, don't listen to the electronics stores, they are just out to make money, although it may fix your problem, it is unnecessary.
Check your tv's manual for settings that may fix that problem, like "source refresh time" or anything to do with signal loss and refresh rates.
