We have had this tv for 4+ years but for some reason we have never been able to play video from a camcorder or games from a PSP on it in full colour. For example, when I attach my camcorder (with correct to attachment) and play footage it's always in black and white, the same with PSP games - the only appear in black and white. I've made sure I've attached all leads correctly, but still no go. I can play all external equipment on other TVs in the house OK, but not the LG one (which is our main TV).

I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS CAMCORDER, WHEN I CONNECT TO VIDEO INPUT OF MODERN DVD RECORDER TO RECORD FROM 8 mm T6APE TO DVD DISC THE PICTURE THOSE NOT SHOW PROPERLY IT SHOWS QUARTER OF THE PICTURE . WHEN I CONNECT DIRECT TO TV COLOUR TO PICTURE SHOWS IN ALL SCREEN, CAN YOU SUDJEST SOMETHING FOR THIS PROBLEM?
Microphones are input devices; they don't double as speakers. If you mean that a stand-alone set of speakers do not work, but the internal speakers of the tv do let you hear the audio track from the camera. Then I have a couple of different suggestions: 1) make sure the stand-alone speakers work with other input sources, 2) try a different cable (make sure it is connected properly).
Also how are you connecting to the different devices? The video camera has an HDMI port which will send audio and video to the TV on one cable. If you are using the RCA audio in both cases, then I suspect a problem with the external speakers.
If you mean that the audio track is clear on play-back when you use the built-in microphone during the recording and not heard if the external microphone, check the external mic for problems. Try it on another recording device. I can't rule out a jack failure without more information.
These days the video input channel depends on the TV and any other equipment in the sequence. I've seen component video come in as Line, Channel 3/4 (with a switch on the video device), Aux1, Ex1, AV1, Channel 60 (I think that may be specific to satellite dish receivers). If the remote has an input button, try that (alternatively, look in the menu for source options). One thing to try: press the PSCAN button on the DVD remote (to toggle off the Progressive scan).
On some TVs the channel for the video is reached by going down from Channel 2 (this works when no channels are programmed into memory and the intervening channels are skipped).
What TV are you connecting to the DVD/VCR player? (If it is an older TV and any external device was connected to either channel 3 or 4, check that the TV works with any input device. I had a 19 year old TV (coax in only) that was damaged and no external device worked.)
You DO NOT use "Channels" to View a DVD player it usually connected to the AV External input. via AV, Yellow, (Video) Red & White, (Audio) or Component Video, Blue, Red & Green. (Video) + Red & White (Audio). These are selected via the External Inputs.
If you can play the vision on your tv via an av connection you should be able to record it onto the recorder. the recorder can record anything thats being played on the tv even if the other device is connected to the tv via another av connection. try this & see if it works.
If it's just one video plug, then perhaps you have to set av5 as being in colour somwhere in the menus. If you require three wires for the pictures, as blue, green, and red, then make sure they aren't in the wrong ports.
