Can't get my component hook ups to show in anything but black and

Can't get my new Samsung to play any of my components in anything but black and white. Do I need any special extra hook ups, change settings ( which I monkeyed around with) or am I overlooking something.

I just hooked up my Flat TV to my Panasonic VHS-DVD recorder player and the screen only shows blurry Black and White when displaying or recording, The TV itself is fine.


Sounds as if you hooked up your player wrong. If you are using a composite hook up. You should have a yellow, red and white cable. Make sure it gets hooked into the same on the TV. If it is a component connection, then RED, Green and Blue. It sounds like you have your Yellow composite going through your Green component. If by chance your TV is a new Sony, then you might have to go into the user menu and turn component off and composite on.

I have hooked my wii up to a new samsung 42"


Make sure that you have switched the Wii to component video in the system setting menus. Once you have done that, you should have a color picture in 480p! Hope this helps!

Jacks show in black and white


You need component output on your Wi. You should have 2 AV jacks on your TV. I am guessing you have a red,white ,and yellow for your WI? That is made to hook up in the AV and NOT the component.If you have red,green,and blue? You might just have a bad cable,that is why it is in B&W. Or hook your Wi to your suround sound AV input if it has one. It is hard to give you all the answers with the info you provided.
But this is a educated guess. hope it helps. Todd

P.S. Be carefull with your controlers, SEVERAL accidents of them hitting the TV and breaking the screen. Play nice. :)

I have a Samsung tv that has no place to plug in the yellow cord. It is a new high dollar HDTV what do I need to get the wii to play? No, there is no yellow hole, the picture is black and white, with...


The only way I was able to get around this was to plug into use component 1 then plug the yellow into the green on the far right. The problem I now have is that I can only use component 1. When I plug a dvd or wii into component 2, it shows still shows up in black & white, even when I plug the yellow into the green. I am not a happy Samsung owner.

Just got a samsung H1080 DVD player playing black and white only


The component connection should have one red, one green, and one blue connector that will connect to the back of your player and the back of your television. Then there should also be another red and a white connector that should run from the AUDIO L & R OUT of your player to the AUDIO L & R IN beside the Component IN connections on your TV. The yellow cord would normally be running from the VIDEO OUT on the back of your player to one of the VIDEO IN connections of your TV.

Samsung hlp4667 only get a picture with HD input.


is there anything else hooked up to your tv other than cable or satellite? if no other components (dvd, vhs, etc) then you will get a snowy screen because the other inputs are for other components that are hooked up. a picture is showing on the HD input because you have cables hooked into that input.

anytime you connect componet signal (green red and blue)to regular video inputs (yellow) end will have same effect. make sure that if you are using component signal from DVD player you have to connected to component input in the set.
component signal will use green red and blue for video and red and white for sound.
Composite signal will be yellow (video)

Hi, I just purchased a Samsung series 3 330 model#LN40A330 I'am having problems with the AV inputs on back of television. I hooked up a DVD player to Component 1 it works fine Then I hooked up Nintendo...


I figured it out,
The solution to my problem was to update my video cables for my new HDTV.
I found out through trial and error that I can only have one Anolog device hooked up to the TV because with two Anolog devices hooked up the same way it must confuse the TV somehow making one of the inputs showing up in Black and White, So I purchased the color coded AV jacks and everthing works like a charm now.

DVD plays only in black and white


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:

HDTV:
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.

DVD:
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.

Component Video Problem


The problem is not with your tv it's with your dvd player. You have to go into the setup on the dvd player and change your output setting to component.
