Re: sony dvd player

If you're using an S-Video cable, check that there are no bent pins on either end.

My Ariana TV only shows the colours black and white

Might have video plugged into wrong plug. Nowadays, for RCA video, Green jack (which is usually for dvd player three color) is used also as conventional video output for old dvd players. They have an automatic switch to detect if you're plugging in old video (yellow) jack in. Picture will be in colour upon plugging into the right jack. No need to shut tv off, just plug in until you see color. Should be sharp & clear.

How do i hook up dvd player or wii to samsung tv and not get black and white picture?

First do you have to wiggle the connection to get them to work? Cables new? Inputs on back of tv tight don't feel like they are falling off? Also the cable where it goes into the system needs to be tight and shouldn't have to twist or bend it in a way to get it to work if so will need new cables.

The video portion won't play but audio does

It looks like you've got a plain, old "480i standard definition" TV. The inputs on it will likely be limited to S-Video, RF Coaxial (cable) and one or more sets of "A/V" inputs that consist of 3 jacks - 1 each yellow, red, and white. Without knowing the make & model of the TV I can't be sure which / how many inputs it has. It looks like you're trying to play a DVD. Most DVD players only offer A/V type connections - again - you didn't provide this info so I'm forced to guess. The Yellow jack (on TVs and disc and tape player / recorders almost always provide the higher quality A/V jacks) is for the video signal and the Red & White are always the left and right stereo audio jacks. The cables used to connect devices to the TV have the same colored plugs to make matching them up easier than if they were all the same color. If you accidentally connected one of the red or white audio plugs into the yellow video jack, you will not have a picture. Check BOTH ends of the cable - at the TV and at the DVD player. All three plugs must be connected to the corresponding colored jack.

If it is connected properly, your DVD player might be one that was a more expensive type that offers "480P Progressive Scan" output along with the standard "480i interlaced scan" output. The 480i output was called "standard definition" and 480P was called "enhanced definition" and provided a better picture. If your TV only supports 480i, it will not be able to display a 480P signal. You will need to check the DVD Player manual to find out how to return the output to 480i again. If you no longer possess the manual, you may either Google it or provide the brand and model here so that we might take a look for it for you.

In the event that you are using RF coax (cable) to get the signal from the source into the TV, you may just be trying to watch it on CH4 instead of CH3 (or vice-versa). Try changing the channel up or down one from where it is to see if the picture comes in.

I hope this helps & good luck!

SONY Bravia 3D TV won't recognize my SONY 3D DVD Player

I don't have the answer....but I just got the same problem. DVD player senses no 3D TV though my Bravia KDL certainly is. Did you ever get it fixed?

Have you checked your connections to ensure that everything is properly connected from your TV to your cable or dish box?
Have you tested your TV on multiple types of media. ie, DVD player, game system, live TV? Do you get the same problem with every type of media?
If your TV only has problems playing live TV it may be a problem with your service provider's equipment, if the error occurs with multiple media types then I suggest you contact Sony and inquire as to getting your TV replaced.

Is i possible to connect a rca cable to the converter box from a dvd player and watch on the tv?

DVD players can have several outputs:
* coaxiable cable
* composite video (RED/WHITE for stereo audio, and YELLOW for video)
* component video (RED/BLUE/GREEN to video components, plus RED/WHITE for stereo audio)

TVs can have several inputs:
* coaxiable cable
* composite video (RED/WHITE for stereo audio, and YELLOW for video)
* component video (RED/BLUE/GREEN to video components, plus RED/WHITE for stereo audio)

Just use the correct tables to "match" the output to the input.

Black And White

Yes, there is a way to change this to color. If you are in the US, make sure you have it set to NTSC or PAL if you are located in Europe.

Phillips DLP 50 inch has no color great black and white picture

There is no color chip. What it does have is called a motor driven color wheel. The problem is that the color wheel is no longer spinning to produce color. Replace the color wheel and you should be fine.
