SOURCE: RCA tv only in black and white?

The route through the circuits in the TV from the various sources all lead to the final video amplifiers for red green and blue. Somewhere along the route is a circuit called a colour switch. This allows colour if the signal is strong enough, otherwise it only allows black and white. This fault suggests a weak video chip which is the one just before the switch circuit. the fault could also be a faulty coupling capacitor to or from this chip, or a low power supply voltage. Check for dry soldered joints around this circiut. Please note if resoldering on new televisions that they may have non leaded solder which requires about 50 degrees centigrade hotter iron.

SOURCE: Component Video inputs do not work

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Black and White Video - Wii Component cable

Sounds like one of the cables is in the wrong jack. Quite often people will mistakenly put the red video cable in the red AUDIO input thats in close proximity. Also sometimes the green and blue look alike in the shadowy recesses behind tv's.....

Could you tell me the steps to hook up my vcr & my dvd players to my tv. And what cables and or devices I need to accomplish this task?


It will depend on the devices. Most VCRs will have composite and S-video outputs. For this you will need either a composite audio/video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end: yellow (video) and red and white (audio)) or an S-video cable and a separate audio cable. The DVD player will probably have component video or HDMI outputs, depending on its age. The component video requires a 3 plug RCA video cable (red, green, blue) and a 2 plug RCA audio cable (red and white). Some DVD players have composite outputs as well. However, this limits you to an SD video output and isn't recommended, unless your TV doesn't have any HD inputs.

If your TV has one each of the appropriate input ports or 2 composite video ports, you just need those cables, assuming you have no other devices that have filled the inputs. Always connect the devices with the TV and the A/V components off. Match the color of the plug to the port. If you mix up the colors on component video cable, you may get a black&white picture. Some newer TVs use an adapter dongle to convert composite or component video to single port on the input board. Again match the colors at the dongle and then plug in the adapter. If your TV has shared composite and component signals, use the HDMI port output on the DVD player, if possible, or get a Audio/Video switch, like this: http://www.amazon.com/Panlong-Switcher-Composite-Selector-Consoles/dp/B00KXVBB3Q/ref=sr_1_24?s=audio-video-accessories&ie=UTF8&qid=1440632814&sr=1-24 .

Please add a comment with the make and model of your specific TV, VCR and DVD player. I hope this helps.

Trying to connecting my Bose lifestyle to my Samsung led smart tv to play a DVD with a yellow video cord and picture is blurry and double and has jo color? Any ideas how to fix Bose lifestyle is older...


Without the specific LifeStyle model # it's not easy to say for sure, but it sounds like you might have a composite cable plugged into a component video output of the Bose. Assuming it does not have HDMI output, it might have white/red/yellow (RCA-type jacks, aka "phono") and that yellow jack is a composite video output. It would plug into the same color jack on the TV. There are also RGB (Red/Green/Blue) component outputs on many devices and similar inputs on the TV, so you have to match like color out to same color in and make sure the TV is set to composite video input, not HDMI nor component.

Also could just be a bad cable. It's always the cheap things that we overlook, so with the same output/input setup, assuming you match type, try a different cable. The actual color of the end on the cable does not matter, but don't plug a yellow-colored output jack to a red, white, blue or green input jack on the TV - that won't work.

I have a daenyx lcd tv, model DN-15, input 12VDC-4A and am trying to hook it up to an xbox 360 console.


If you are using the Red/Yellow/White cable, that's composite cable, but if you're using the one that's Red/Yellow/White/Blue/Green, that's called component. So basically, you set your TV's input to the corresponding color match. 5 colors: Component, 3 colors: Composite.

I have a used 802.11g/2.4Ghz wirless router and i dont know how to use it cause i dont have a cd or directions it was used by my cousin like 3 years ago i would like to use it please help. I have a cable...


First you have to re-configure the Router according to your Internet connection (ISP setting). Any software disk is not required to configure the Router. Just login to your Router and configure.

To login to your Router just use the IP 192.168.0.1 (type in Web Browser) to get in.

The default Username is "admin" and there may be no password or the default password may be the 'password'.

Now input the details like your ISP username, password, IP address etc. to configure the Router.

You may also refer the User Guide of the Router to configure it.

Better do a Google Image search for for information:

No Color


You may have the cables in the wrong inputs. Make sure the y/r/w ends match the jacks. If using a 5 color cable, same matching. I have had 1 cable actually be bad out of the box and it gave me no color on a 5 conductor cable.

I dont know how to hook up a dvd player


Depending on the model of DVD player and the TV you are trying to connect it to you have various inputs and outputs.

If your have an HD (High Definition) DVD Player and a HD TV the best input to use is HDMI. Both device would have an HDMI interface whereby you could connect them together.

If you have a standard DVD Player you have usually 3 other input/output options, RCA, S-Video, and Component. Your RCA jacks are colored Red, Yellow, and White. Your S-Video is a larger circular jack with several pins. The Component cable has Red, Green, and Blue.

Of the three above the Component Cable connection is going to give you best picture quality. S-Video is second and RCA is third. You just need to match up the connectors on your TV and DVD and get the cable that accommodates the best picture quality. Again for clarification below are the interface options for best quality to poorest:

1. HDMI
2. Component
3. S-Video
4. RCA

Hope this helps.

I assume you are saying that the DVD player only has RCA jacks. It would be good to know if the DVD player has Component output as that is the preferred output. You will know this if the RCA jacks on the DVD are color coded green, blue and red.... You would by a set of component cables, hook to DVD matching colors and then find the same color code on input of the TV. You must also run the red and white cable from the DVD output to the TV input for audio. The input on the TV would be labled component in or input and a #. Simply select the input, or source button on remote to select the input that matches your choice and all should function. If there is no component on the DVD output and only a composit hook up (color code by yellow, red, white) again just match that to the corresponding input on the TV.
