5 year old system started flipping out, first had red blinking power light, now audio works but DVDs play in black and white. Sounds like a power supply issue, but that's just a guess. Any opinions before I use it as a door stop?
Try use connect your dvd player with just RCA(composite video) and see if you get regular color picture.If so,you need to go to the system menu to check the video output and see if it is under R Pr Pb-component video setting?If not,be sure to change it to component video setting AND use component video cable to connect to your TV unless your TV don't have this connection.

Without more data, I can only make some general suggestions.
First: Check your cables. If you are using a converter box, there must be a set of audio and video cables going from the cable box to the Home Theatre unit. These will be a yellow/white/red set of cables. Second: If these cables are plugged into "AUX1" or "AUX2" make sure this is what reads on the front of the HT unit. You already have cables going from the HT to the TV because your DVD works.
Although this sounds obvious (please forgive me-I am not underestimating you) IF your TV receiver is 6 years old or more, and you are NOT using cable or satellite, there will be nothing for your set to pick up since the conversion from analog to digital.
you did not connect it to the right port in you tv with the right cables. if it came with a cable using red, blue, and green wire you need to connect all three to the appropriate place on the tv in this case the red is a video cable and not audio they are white and black in component video... if it is the other way around you have a red white and yellow cable the red and white are audio and yellow is the only video and needs to be connected to a yellow jack on the television
Hi, Symptom shows Lamp is weak in result and causing restart of TV again and again. Your TV requires new lamp as per following part number... A1085447A* LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2200U It is available in Sony Accessories Store for $200 and replacement procedure is written in instruction manual of TV.

Hello, imho you must initialize your jvc.
Follow the instructions:
(1) Unplug the power plug.
(2) Insert power plug into outlet while pressing both "PLAY" key and "STANDBY/ON" key of the main body.
"Area code" is indicated at the upper left of display.
(3) Press "PAUSE" key of the main body.
(4) When initialization is completed, "00" and "RDS" is displayed in the FL display.
(5) To release test mode, press "STANDBY/ON" key of the main body.
(6) Now unplug the power plug an insert it again after a 5 seconds.
Be carefully and press no other key then the list above.
Now it will be work fine again.
I hope it would be helpfully.
Since you're using a composite cable (yellow RCA) that carries both luma (brightness) and chroma (color) information, it's not the cable that is the problem.
That means it's either the DVD player itself, or the TV. If you have another video device (VCR, etc) that you can connect to the TV, try that. If the other device also goes from color to black and white, then it's your TV. Otherwise the problem is your DVD player.
Since your TV only has mono audio (white RCA, but no red) I would recommend getting a new TV if the TV is to blame.
3 blinks means the convergence circuits are shutting the set down. Usually the convergence ICs will take care of the problem, but I would recommend getting the service manual from the following link, as they will provide you free support to help you diagnose why it wont start as usually the convergence ICs wont prevent a set from powering up, unless another component in the convergence circuit has failed. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
