My apex video/dvd player plays back my dvd's only in black and white.

    Thank you, I have tried that. Everything is tight. The VHS part plays in color and the tv is brand new today. Before the old tv went dead, I had the same difficulty with the dvd's playing back only in black and white and I blamed the tv as it was on its way out.

Be sure all your rca wires are good either by wiggling or replacing. If not the problem be sure the tv is ok and only then condem the dvd player. Try different input to tv also.

    Try also replacing cable if moving it does not fix it.

Dvd is playing movies in black and white


Hi
use red/white/Yellow cables to connect to a loose hard diskon which I keep films, TV-serials and talking books. The colour is fine.

But I connect the DVD to the TV with a scart cable.

Hope you get your colour

Only plays in black and white? what do we do?


Try a different cable, and a different TV if possible to help narrow down the problem.
it could be set for some other peculiar output mode; go into the configuration in the dvd player menu and verify that it is set for the type of TV you are using. normal composite video, (RCA), SVideo, Component Video, RGB, VGA, and Progressive Scan.

VHS plays in colour and DVD plays in black and white.


there is a circuit in the color section to put the tv to black and white if the color subcarrier is missing from the broadcast signal.
it is called a color killer and needs to be adjusted.
it is for a technician to do.
it operates off the 3.58mhz color subcarrier.

APEX Digital VCR&DVD PLAYER ADV-3800 will not play DVD's.


What it so far done, it looks pretty fine. I'd break apart the problem if is posible to do it, i mean maybe you have some other sets around the house or some friend who have them.
  • i'd test the dvd/vcr in a different tv
  • i'd test the tv with a different dvd
i would start over again the installation after this test.

the reason is to know if you can trust in those sets and second maybe with some other try the installation works

I can only record and play back in black and white.


siri,

for the black and white screen output of your DVD and VCR.

1) for DVD player: using remote control locate "setup" button and click.a dialogue box should appear indicating " audio setup" video setup" etc.....
2) select and scroll to "video setup". in video setup there should be an option to choose "AUTO" "PAL" or "NTSC"
3) choose "auto" then check if any change in screen color.

for VCR, locate a switch or button indicating "PAL" "Auto""PAL SECAM" "NTSC". same with the dvd choose and select "auto"

note: if you still have the manual for both VCR and DVD check the instruction with regards to video color setting.

cheers,
mark

Dvd plays in black and White


There are a couple of things you could try with this. One, is to make sure that the video input is connected properly. The second would be to make sure that the DVD that played in black and white automatically changed your settings to PAL rather than NTSC.
