Defective cabling or bad processor preamp on LCD unit. Could also be a bad buffer/driver on the DVD outputs as this feature is not used on composite hookups...accordianman

My dvd player only plays movies in black and white. When I watch tv, it's in color so I know its not the tv.


Hi,

I suspect you may have connected a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type) to the COMPONENT video input sockets on the back of the TV.

COMPONENT requires 3 RCA type video cables - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded red, green, and blue. COMPOSITE only uses one RCA type video cable - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded yellow.
If you connect the yellow video cable to one of the three component inputs you will get a black and white picture although you will still have audio if the red and white cables are correctly connected.

If you are using a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type), please check your connections. Make sure you have not connected to any sockets - either on the TV or the back of the DVD player - under the heading of "COMPONENT" - or individually marked "Pr", "Cr", "Pb", "Cb" or "Y".


If you have verified that you are using the correct sockets on the TV and it still doesn't work or if you are using any other type of cable, please let me know which cable you are using and the model number of the TV and the DVD player. I will then be able to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

Dvd player only plays in b&w, and connectors dont seem to match up with tv


Go into the player's setup menu and make sure it's set for the kind of connection you're actually using (component, S-video, composite). Also make sure the connections are pushed "all-the-way-in" Lose connections can cause B&W picture.

Which dvd connection go to which TV connection.On the dvd I have component(white), video(red),audio(orange), y(green),Pb(blue) and Pr(red)


Connect yellow video from DVD to TV. Connect white audio and red audio from DVD to TV. These will be next to yellow jack. That is all the connections you need for picture and sound. Use RCA cables available at Radio Shack or Wal Mart.

When I hook it up to the TV and set it up as component 1 I only get black and white and no colour.


Are you using component cables (Y=green, Pb=blue, Pr=red, white, and red) ? If so try changing the component cables. If the picture is still coming in in black and white try another device besides that DVD player that has a component output. If a second device is coming in in black and white with a new component cable then it is the television.

I have no signal with the video component (Y, Pb and Pr)


You may have to set-up the DVD player for component (Y,Pb,Pr) output instead of S-video. You may have to set DVD player to progressive-scan or 720p or 1080 video out, also.

How to connect a dvd player to lcd tv


Your DVD player's output is Composite Video (the yellow connector) plus stereo audio (the red and white connectors, for right and left audio)

The inputs on your TV are for Component Video, which splits the video signal into three cables (Y for brightness, Pb and Pr for blue and red, respectively)

Check your TV to see if it has a composite input (single yellow connector, labeled "video" or "composite")

And be sure to let me know if this helps!

What channel does tv need to be on to play dvd's


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Depending on where you are and the standards/connections used, it could be:
  • Channel 3 or 4 (if using a single coaxial patch cord);
Other connection possibilities are:
  • AV, Video 1, AUX, Line 1 (if using composite yellow red & white RCA to RCA cables);
  • Component (if using component Y, Pb, Pr, red & white RCA to RCA cables).
  • SCART;
  • HDMI;
  • S-Video.
Perhaps you could post back what is used, what connectors are available at the rear of both the DVD player/TV.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Monster Component Cable labled Y/Cb/CR to TV that has Input Y/Pb/Pr


Y PB PR is the analog version of the Y CB CR color space; the two are numerically equivalent, but Y PB PR is designed for use in analog systems whereas Y CB CR is intended for digital video.

Trying to connect sony dvd player to hdtv


You will need some cables first. It's really not that difficult once you know what each cable does.

Since you're only connecting from the DVD player to a receiver, this should be simple.

There are 4 solutions depending on what cables you have.

Composite - Yellow, Red, and White ended connectors.
S-Video - Black 4-pin connectors.
Component - Green, Blue, Red and sometimes extra Red, White for audio.
HDMI - heavy cable with a wide/flat connector.

Composite connection - Connect the yellow end to the yellow Video Out of the DVD player and to the DVD Video In on the receiver. Connect the Red audio connector to the Red Audio out of the DVD player, the White connector to the White Audio out of the DVD player, and then connect those to the Red and White Ins for DVD Audio on the Receiver.

S-Video Connection - This is the same as the Composite video connection, but connect the black 4-pin cable into the S-Video out of the DVD player and into the In for DVD on the back of the receiver instead of using the yellow video cable. The S-Video cable is a video only cable and uses the same audio cables (the red and white ended cables) for audio.

Component Connection - On the back of the DVD player, connect the 3 video cables that are Red to Red, Blue to Blue, and Green to Green. These will be labeled Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. Connect these video cables to the inputs of the receiver the same way Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. The audio connection is the same as composite and there should be a place on the DVD player that will tell you what audio is for Component. This is also the same on the back of the receiver.

HDMI Connection - This one is the easiest to connect as your audio and video are in the same cable. Plug in your HDMI cable in the back of the DVD player (there should only be one) and then to the HDMI connection for DVD on the back of the receiver.

Now...once you have your connections made, turn on your DVD player, set your receiver to DVD, and enjoy.

If your receiver does not have video inputs, you will need to run the video lines directly to your TV while the audio lines go to your receiver. This will mean you will need to set the receiver to DVD as well as change the channel of the TV to the input you have the DVD player plugged into.

I hope this helps.
