Question about Sanyo DVD-SL20 DVD Player

1 Answer

I have DVD player connected to LG 20LC1R LCD TV. All of a sudden the picture changes to B/W. I do not know how to change display back to colour. I have tried all the buttons on DVD's and TV's remotes. Switching all off/on does not help either. Regards, Coenraad Raath.

Hi the first thing you need to do is switch the dvd off at the mains then remove the cable out of the dvd that goes to the telly and also take it out of the back of the telly then refit making sure its pushed in the dvd and telly far enough, doing this will usually solve the problem as most of the time its just static build up.

so once you have refitted the lead plug the dvd back in and switch the telly on then switch the dvd on if the telly goes strait onto the dvd channel then check is working with color if the dvd comes on but dont go to correct channel then you need to press the button on tv remote should be something like av or source or input you will know what im going on about anyway.

so give that a try and see if you have any color then, also check your tv has color on normal telly channels, i take it you have all ready done this as you would have said if everything was affected by this.

if the telly goes onto the dvd by itself and you still have no color then try pressing the av or source or input button on remote just to make sure you are on correct channel, if after doing this you still have no color then try plugging the dvd into another input on the telly doing this will tell you if the input you are using has a fault on it or if the dvd has the fault.

let me know what happens after you have tried the above

I pressed " setup" on

unplug the power from the TV and the DVD. Plug them back in and try. There is nothing in the tv menu that would knock out your picture, but the dvd player menu has a couple things that would. If unplug doesn't work, tell us what brand dvd player you have.

Lg 32lc2r, only showing picture in black and white

Make sure that the color control level is set to the default or 50% to start with. This should be in the Video menu.

The colour for the tuner and for the encoded base-band video uses a circuit area called the colour demodulator. It is possible that this cirucuit area has failed and needs servicing.
