Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

Tv through dvd/video combo shows only black & white picture???

I think it is connected right - have tried many options, bought 2nd hand, no manual, desperate for some assistance - is it a cabling issue? We have foxtel digital plugged in and video in through foxtel - tv sees it but can't get a colour picture??  HELP!!  It is an older TV Model CT-M6828S and I know I am probably pushing my luck - but it can't hurt to ask can it?  Thanking you in anticipation if you can help. Cheers, Kathy

Could either be one of your connecting cables (the first thing I would check) or the TV itself. Check you have not mixed up the input and output plugs on the VCR as well :-)

Sanyo TV connect to cable box connect DVD player


If your DVD/VCR combo player has three RCA connectors (yellow, red, and white), you can connect them to the corresponding inputs on the front of your TV.

I have a problem I am trying to connect my dvd player It shows black and white i have a proscan 32 inch what can I do to fix this ? please help.


Check to make sure the Video connector (YELLOW) is connected to a YELLOW plug on both the TV and the DVD. If it is plugged into a GREEN plug then it will produce the black and white picture and not a color picture.

Good Luck...

We are unable to get video (picture) on our TV, when we hook up to our new DVD/VCR combo. The combo doesn't have an S-video port and our TV does. We get perfect sound though.


Your TV should also have a regular composite video input jack (yellow) in addition to the s-video input. Use that input instead of the s-video. The video won't be quite as clear as with s-video, but you have to work with what the combo gives you.

Can't get DVD/VCR on TV screen


Universal remotes are not universal....You may be able to find one button labeled as something else to actually change your input. Just have to try them all... Nothing replaces the original....

You have to choose the right INPUT on your TV where your DVD player was connected. If your using the Yellow/Red/White cable from your DVD player you need to choose on your TV the input Example Video1 Video2, etc... If your using the COAX,(like cable wire) Put your TV on Channel 3 or 4. Hope this may help you. Please post the outcome, if you need further help. Is this TV is a COMBO?

Multiple video inputs


Unfortunately, you cannot use the connectors at the same time. The S-Video connector overrides the standard video connector. This is why they share common audio left/right inputs. If you could use them separately, they would each have their own set of audio inputs. (S-Video does not carry audio signals on the cable.) I'm assuming that you are connecting your Satellite as an input to your VCR, and then your VCR to the TV via a video connection. The VCR passes the satellite signal through unless you are watching a tape, then it overrides the dish signal. You have a few choices here: 1. You can connect the coaxial (RF) output from the VCR to the TV, and watch the satellite and VCR on channel 3 (or 4). You can then connect the DVD via S-Video, and watch it on "video". This is the simplest solution, and provides the best picture quality for the DVD (with this TV), but lower quality for the dish and VCR. 2. You can connect the DVD player via RF (if it supports that), watch the DVD on channel 3, and connect the VCR via video. This will make the DVD picture quality terrible. 3. You can replace the VCR with a combo DVD/VCR unit. You can then connect the S-Video out from the combo unit to the TV. This is a more expensive solution. 4. You can replace the TV with a model that includes more inputs. This is the most expensive solution, but will allow you to watch your DVD over component cables (very high quality) and VCR and dish over S-Video. Ironically, the obvious choice, connecting the DVD as an input to the VCR (as a pass-through) simply WON'T WORK. The signal put out by the DVD player is "copy protected" (using a system called MacroVision) which the VCR will refuse to play, even as a pass-though. Best of luck with this. Given that you are trying to make this all work without replacing equipment, I recommend option #1, until you decide to break down and buy a shiny new HDTV. They are coming down in price every week, but only you can decide when the time is right.
