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 :-)

I just bought a Westinghouse LED TV. When I hooked up my dual DVD/Video combo the picture is black and white. What did I hook up wrong??


It sounds like you may have connected the dvd/video combo to the wrong spot on the television. The yellow wire cannot be placed into the green hole. You'll get a picture but it will be in black and white. You can only connect these yellow, red, and white composite wires to a component input spot on this television in order to get a color picture.

I am trying to get my combo player hooked up to my tv. I don't have the manual. I just want to be able to watch DVD's and VHS tapes.


Check the type of connections on your combo player and TV, there are likely two options for connection:
1st option = AV: 3 RCA connections (yellow, red, white)
2nd option = COMPONENT: 5 RCA connections (red, green, blue, red, white)
Get the appropriate cable and connect it to the available input on your TV. Unless you have an ancient TV from a few decades ago, it should at least have AV connection.

For some reason, my DVD player just started showing up in black and white. Also, when I select the "source" on my TV remote, instead of showing the option "AV" for the DVD player, it...


Select AV as your source and that should cure the problem as long as you have the video and audio cables connected to the right inputs. You could also use an S-Video cable instead of the video cable for better picture quality depending on your TV model (assuming it has a S-video input). Your owners manual(s) will probably have diagrams for you to follow.

OK,you need 3 leads,(A/V leads),normally red white and yellow.

So yellow is for Picture (video).go from video OUT (combo) to TV video IN.

Then red and white .... Audio OUT of combo into Audio IN on TV

TV must then be set to AV1 or AV2 depending on which AV inputs you used..

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.
