Question about Televison & Video
I just got a new samsung flat screen TV. My dvd player is playing only in black and white, the cable tv works fine. Everything works completely fine except that the dvd plays with no color. I checked all the settings I could figure out and can't find anything that is set to black and white or anything. I noticed that the cord going from cable to TV has 3 video plugs (red, blue, and green). My dvd to TV has only the 1 yellow video plug. Could this be the reason?
Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:
Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.
Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

Adjust your Menu/Settings on your DVD player to "Component"---the you will have color!
