Take a flashlight and magnifying glass and look at the S-Video connector on the back of the TV. Check to see that there aren't any pins or other debris stuck in the four holes.

One pair of holes is for the brightness (luma) signal, which gives you the black and white picture, and the other pair of holes is for the color (chroma) signal, which seems to not be functioning.

If there's nothing in the holes, then the internal connection may be flakey. Try gently wiggling the plug on the TV side and see if color returns, even briefly.

Does your TV have other inputs like component YPbPr?

Rca big sreen went black and white menue is still in color


Try using one of the other video input options, like AV inputs. If still have black and white picture, then the color processor is having issues. If now in color, then your tuner has issues detecting the chroma / luminance signal.

If you are using an external digital box, this may be the source of the problem as well. If you still have a VCR, connect the coax from VCR to the coax input on the TV, and play a tape. Tune the tv to channel 3 or 4. If in color, then your set top digital box is faulty.

How do i hook up my computer to my mitsubshi ws-48413?


Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Now, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go. At the rear or side of the PC there should be either or both of a 15 Pin DIN Plug, HDMI socket. or a Yellow RCA or 4 -7 pin DIN. Now IF these are present then YES you can connect to a TV. Now some TV's have a connector a DB15 MALE, so that the cable from the PC to the TV, is DB15. this plugs in directly, with appropriate DB15 cable. This, however, will ONLY take the VIDEO to the TV, Audio is delivered via the "Audio Out" Jack on PC, and Plugged into the AV Sockets on the TV, with a dual cored coaxial cable, they are Red & White. Some PC's also have a Yellow RCA Connector, OR a 4 -7 Pin DIN Socket, that requires a Special Adapter Cable (That generally came with the unit, and are colored and marked as to output) to use, for Video/Audio Out to TV. This signal is Composite or SVHS Video & Stereo Out. This connects up TO the TV's Composite/SVHS input Jacks and the Red & White Audio IN, RCA Jacks, &/or DIN SVHS socket.
First you need to know if your PC can output to a TV. Then you need to get the adapter & cables that connect the PC to the TV. Then you need the correct TV drivers installed for your video card. When they are all installed, you need to "Enable" that Monitors, the TV's, Desktop. You need to set either a "Cloned" display or "Spanned, Extended Desktop". Go to "Display Settings" Now ensure the TV/Monitor connected has the correct input/output display settings. Adjust the screens resolution via the resoloution "Slider", it is best to start with, 800x600 32 bit color. or even lower. and once working OK, THEN increase to max resolution, your TV can handle, find out from manual. Once it is all connected up. It should all just work great. Now, from then on, &, to get it to work every-time, the process is. Turn everything OFF. Connect the leads between PC & TV, Turn the TV, ON. Then, startup the PC up. It should "Detect" that it has TWO "Monitors" ie: One Monitor & One TV/Monitor, & you should see your desktop appear after a bit. Now you have screen 1 & screens 2. Now, if you are using "Cloned" mode, then whatever is displayed on the Master monitor, will be displayed on the TV. If you used Spanned, mode, in this mode, however, you will have to."Drag" the Video window, over to the TV, and it is though, you have one "Big Desktop". Now IF using Nvidia or ATI then BOTH of those have thier OWN, Control Panel, this, all then can make it all a lot easier to do it. So I would suggest that this method be used. But if you get stuck, or just want to do it by hand, then the the "By Hand" method is the only way.There is a great program called MultiMon, this allows great control over dual displays, and is well worth installing.

How do I hook up my dish network and a wii console at the same time if I don't have the tv/ant cable I just have the red, yellow, and white cables?


Yellow is Video, Red & White are Audio, these wire color to color from unit to TV. Use these for the Wii, and the Dish, output will wire the same, if that is the ONLY way to output the signal... You can get "Splitter" boxes that allow a two to one, switchable input. Usually though, it's out with one, in with the other. most modern TV's have multiple ways of getting video into the set. Do you have any "other" Video/Audio inputs? Like, SVHS, Composite, Component? If so then you use one each and choose of the menu on the TV. Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV.

Samsung DLP TV shows green color where color should be black


This could be your video board going bad where your input cables are connected --OR-- the color wheel going bad. Hard to tell without a photo or reference though. Try swapping the cables first... and listen for any winding or whirring sounds.

The color just went out on my tv - it is only showing in black and white. Is there anything I can do?


There's a few things you can try - change the source or how the source is hooked up. If you are hooked to satelite or cable box (source) try hooking hooking up to the tv (video 1or2 input) with video cables (RCA type -red.wht, Yel) from your source. Also try seeing if you have color when you play a DVD (if available).If it doesn't matter which source you use or how you hook it up you still have no color than the problem is internal to the TV.
These sets have a common problem with an internal comb filter circuit that can cause no color - but it usually also causes distotion in the oicture as well
Hope this helped, be sure to rate/vote for me if it did

I would like to know if I can connect a HDMI cable from My tv model WS-65315 to a Direct TV HD receiver?


NO> If your TV supports and have HDMI connections and your HD receiver has an HDMI output then you should have no problem displaying Video. Just make sure you change the input signal of your television to HDMI input. After looking at the spec's of this model these are the following inputs you have. your best picture quaity would be to use componet cables instead, which can show full screen 1080i format, your television does not show at 1080p whis is what HDMI is known for.
Connectors
Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 2 - Component x 3 - Composite x 2 - DVI x 1 - RF x 2 - 1 x RS-232C - Audio (RCA) x 6

Front Input Connectors S-Video x 1 - Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1

Rear Output Connectors Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1 - RF x 1

Another good option is use to use a DVI to HMDI connector and hook it up this way. But note: you will have to use audio cables for the DVI input.

Try to use your directv box with a different A/V connection to the TV and see what happens?
EX. If you have a basic directv box using coaxial cable connection,try to use RCA(yellow,red/white) cable to a RCA input behind the tv.

Video input from dvd player shows as black screen w/ squigly color lines


have you tried other devices for input...vcr, or other dvd players to see if it is a problem with the player or with the tv? Check the output setting for the dvd player (1080i etc) and ensure you are connecting to the proper inputs for either analog or digital signals (RCA inputs or RGB).
