Question about RCA 20F510TD 20 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

DVD output is Black & White

When trying to copy a "home made DVD" (not a store bought or pirated copy) the copied DVD is black & white. The TV is showing Color, but output is apparently black & white.

Have you had this before?

    It was an RCA DRC 8335 VHS/DVD player recorder. We solved the problem by using a "stand alone" DVD player and not the TV DVD player. It copied fine then.



    The TV DVD player would show the DVD fine, in color, but something is wrong in the output circuit, causing it to put out black & white. Reading posts on here, it seems the RCA 20F510TD TV has a lot of problems.

Go to the "Bose" menu screen viewing on your TV (make sure no dvd is in the player) Go to your Video controls and check your output, chances are, if your using the component output your player is set to "S-Video". Should fix the problem. Hope this helps. If it's still not viewing correctly, post a comment and I will help you some more

Are you trying to copy a comercial VHS tape to DVD?
If you are then macrovision copy protection system on either the tape or in the machine is the reason for the loss of colour.
There's not a lot you can do about it. If you want to copy commercial material you will need to transfer it to a computer and get a program to do it. But unless it's unavailable it is cheaper to buy the DVD version I have found and you will get better picture and sound too!
If it does it with a none comercial tape (ie something recorded of the TV). Then it could be a head fault or something else. In which case try cleaning all the heads guides etc first.

Try to set your video output settings on your dvd player . I assume you used to connect to your old tv by using svideo and now you are using another connection like component, scart or hdmi.If the video output setttings on your dvd are still on svideo you will have to set it to rgb or component or else you will get black and white images..

White line and very, very dirty copies


the nealy black copies sounds like the drum is going, try adjusting the exposure to light, if it comes out with the whole page the same way but just lighter than change drum. White line sounds like there is something on the coronas.
