It is not clear whether one DVD or all DVDs play in black and white. If it is only one make sure that the format of the DVD is correct. If it is all DVDs, given that the VHS tape and cable play with color, there could be a problem with the chroma circuit in the unit. This is probably something that a technician would need to diagnose. Good luck.

Yes, definitely worth fixing. The problem lies in the vertical deflection voltage-doubler circuit. The usual fault is a single capacitor of 100uF/35V that has failed. It is normally connected to a rectifier diode right at the vertical IC. Replacing the capacitor (no more than USD4.00 in price) usually gets it working perfectly again. If you are finicky around technical work, then a reputable local repair shop in your locality should do it quickly for you and charge only labour.

My Toshiba required replacement of two of the vertical filters/capacitors. Doesn't take long and the parts are inexpensive, but requires a repairman.
