Question about Canon MV500i Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Everything is connected as per manual - problem is the imported image is in black and white. I've tested the VHS and cable on a TV and they are outputting colour, so the issue is with the MV500i.
I _assume_ you're feeding PAL video into the MV500i... one of the simplest ways to lose color information is to feed an NTSC (or PAL60) source to a standard PAL display.
Another possibility is that you're losing the chroma signal. I believe this camcorder has a composite (CVBS) analog input. If you're tapping off a SCART connector, make sure you use a SCART to composite cable, not SCART to Y/C (luminance/chroma). Are you using the same cabling with the camcorder as with the TV?
