You are probably talking about a composite video(yellow) cable and stereo audio(white/red).You must have plugged the yellow cable into the port for one of the component video(red/blue/green) cables.(It does look like black and white if you plugged it into the green of the composite video).
Many times a computer's post screens will not show up a TV set, and once the computer itself has loaded the drivers and settings, the set may need to be shut off and turned back on for the HDNI or PC signal to be detected.
It is also possible the settings you selected for display properties cannot be displayed on the TV.
As far as the component video signal, are the connections correct? Sometimes people mistake the composite red, white and yellow for the composite system that divides the red, blue and green video signals.
While also possible, but rare- there may be poorly soldered connections on the "A&D" board (logic board) .
Is your cable box HD? It would be best for your tv. You can hook up a couple of ways depending on your receiver and tv in/out capabilities. You will always get best picture if you go directly from your cable box out to tv in. You should have capabilty to go HDMI out and perhaps Component out on your cable box. If you can't get hd receiver from cable company. Anyway, if you use HDMI, hook to HDMI out on receiver to HDMI in on tv. HDMI provides audio and video. You can also go componenet(red, blue, green) out from recevier to in on tv. I personally feel component gives you better picture but , doesn't carry audio. For that you need to get audio using either digital optical or, composite cables. You may have to set your HD on receiver through cable boxes menu. The last option is using composite cables(last choice, poorest picture and sound) yellow(video) and red, white(audio)
Use three RCA cables, yellow, white and red to connect DVD player to TV as shown in the diagram below. Connect yellow to yellow and white to white. Connect red to red. Select on the TV, the A/V input where the DVD is connected using the TV remote control. Power on TV and DVD, place a disc in tray of DVD player and press PLAY.
The red whit and yellow connectors are for the Component connectors, your cable is for Composite connection - incompatible one to each other.
Your tv also has that yellow red and white connectors somewhere on it - probably on the side. Plug the cable there and respect the color coding or it will not work.
Make sure the tv is set to A/V 1 if it has multiple A/V hookups make sure the tv is on and set to the A/V channel you are trying to use. And make sure your cable is set to tv if you have a composite cable. If that does not work try buying a composite cable (thats the yellow red red blue green white cable). If that does not work. There might be something wrong with the xbox or tv.
The red white and yellow cables are composite connections. The red/green/blue connections are component connections.
The playstation's composite connections consist of two audio connections- red & white, and a composite yellow video connection. The TV's white connection is the audio, and the red/green/blue are component video. You need an adapter that will connect the one yellow(composite video) to the three red/green/blue (component video) connections
I have determined that mine had a problem with the composite input board. I was able to unhook the connections to this board inside the TV, after Akai, and the local repair guys couldn't figure it out....
The problem hasn't come back in a while, and since my setup is all HDMI/Component ins, I didn't affect me at all.
It looked like there was slight heat damage to the board, but not enough that it was caused by a design flaw, more like a manufacturing "accident".
