Check the system setting of your DVD player...it must be in NTSC mode.or Auto-system mode.

SOURCE: Plasma Tv 42PD580DTA, Black and white screen while viewing DVDs or Video

Hi there,
My sister-in-law has exactly the same problem and is a common one with this unit.
I've spoken to a technician who says that:
1. Hitachi are withdrawing from Australia and there are VERY limited service centres left
2. The problem is a chip on the main board and depending when the TV was made will determine whether the chip is a plu-in or soldered on to the main board - if it's the latter, you'll be up for a main board at around $400
3. He couldn't get the price of the plug-in chip because he couldn't get through to Hitachi.

Cheers

Dave M.

Cable damage is the first thing to check. If the cable is external this is an easy check by trying a new one. Otherwise it is probably internal cable damage or damage to the video output plug.

NOT GETTING COLOUR FROM CCTV DVR TO TV BLACK WHITE


Missing information alert. What is meant by "to TV black and white"? Are you saying you can't get playback on a black and white (and therefore old, analog) TV set? What connection set up are you using between recorder and the playback TV? At first glance it would appear you might need a digital to analog converter to process the DVR output prior to feeding it as a SD (standard definition) signal into your TV set for mmonitoring. thanks for clarifiying your question, including a description of your setup.

DVD Playback is only Black & White


Different areas use different colour systems. The most common types being PAL and NTSC. What I think you might have done is changed the colour type setting to one that is not compatible with your TV. If you have the manual look up the colour settings. If you haven't got the manual look around the main menu for them. If all else fails use the factory reset.

I am in Australia and have a Panasonic SC-HT878 DVD player that plays PAL DVDs fine through my TEAC TV but when I play NTSC DVDs I only get a black and white picture. How do I fix this so my NTSC DVDs play...


There should be a setting on the DVD's menu for output of picture. You should look under colour settings, to see if it has got NTSC output. You should also check your TV it might not be set to NTSC aswell. You can look in the user manual of the DVD to see if says anything about NTSC playback. If you have lost the manual you can download it for free on the Panasonic website.
If it won't playback NTSC discs, I'd guess you can get an adapter from somewhere.

Black and white only


Well - it's fixed - but no thanks to anything I did.  It's just all of a sudden working fine again.  I tried three different dvd's the other night, and all were black and white.  But last night the same dvd's were back to colour.  Who knows?
But thanks for asking.

Picture only shows in black & white when playing DVD


Same problem with an older JVC player. One end of the S-video cable was loose. Pushed in in tight and everything ok again. Cheap fix if it works for you.

Black & white picture on vcr & dvd playback


Check your VCR or DVD for correct region and standard. If I had a camcorder, VCR, or DVD player here in America on Pal standard or eupopean region the same thing would happen.In fact I accedently did that on an unknown switch on the camcorder.
