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 HAVE A 2006 SAMSUNG DLP HL-S7178W {73" PROJECTION TV},IT WILL ONLY WORK ON AIR 3, COMPONENT 1,NOTHING, COMPONENT 2 HAS PICTURE,BUT NO SOUND.I PURCHASE A "CHEAPER" REPLACEMENT BULB INSTEAD OF A SAMSU


If anything were bad with the lamp or ballast, the TV would not have a picture, and would shut off in 30 secs. I think on these component 1 does not run HD inputs--only 480i +480p (progress. scan DVD). Component 2 runs up to 1080i HD but not 480i SD, I think. Your no sound must be something else.

The tv on;y shows a small pip window in color if it is a large picture the picture is in black and white how to fix?


Whatever input video signal you're using, PIP should be in color. What are you using out of your dvd for the second video input source, composite or component? Composite you should always have color, Component, if you have a bad red or blue, and just the green is working, you will get black and white. The green is the luminence signal.

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.

Plays dvds on xbox 360 fine, but no picture for games/dashboard


already solved it. thanks. i couldn't see the xbox settings blade because of the blank screen so switched my component cable to the tv setting instead of the hdtv setting, then i could see the dashboard in non-hd and switched the resolution to 720p while simultaneously switching the component cable back to the hdtv setting. that worked.

Samsung HD Plasma - hooked up DVD to it but movies play in black & white??


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)
red and white(audio)

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.

Wavy picture after hooking up component switch


What you are using is probably an active switch. Many of the movies have macrovision protection. The active switch is having problems to deal with sync pulses from the video containing the macro vision protection.
