If you are using the s-video jack to connect the DVD to the TV, the jack could be loose or the wire could be bad. The s-video cable has 2 signals, the black-and-white (luminance) and the color (chroma). If the chroma signal is not getting through, the picture will be in black and white.

I have a K715 that was having the same problem. The "line select" had been switched from "in" instead of "out". Once I switched it back to "out", the player worked normal.

I had the same problems from this product! PERSISTANCE is the key!!
I tried to call the tech support numbers that the other people here had suggested, all I got was a recording that wanted me to leave my info and theyd "contact me in "0 to 2 business days".
Sorry, Im quite impatient .... had to keep fiddling with it myself, till someone calls me back. Hell, if I break it, it was already broke, right? lol
THE SOLUTION is to clean the lense! I stuck one of those disc cleaner discs in and shortly after, it started working just fine. Mind you, Ive spent at least an hour popping disc after disc, in .... thinking it was a problem with HOW a DISC played/read. I truely believe the player just needs to be cleaned of dust.
I suggest giving the device to a responsible child in your household, to mess with/attempt this (as MY mother did). She got this Portable DVD Player for X-mas and when it arrived from Ebay, she waited 2 months before seeing if it even worked. She was quite disappointed to find that "it was ****" and shed waisted her money. She gave it to me to try and fix, with no luck. So she tried numerous times to toss it out .... me, being a pack rat, holding onto it for 7 months, found I had nothing else to do today, remembering I had this thing, decided to give it another try. About an hour of persistance, its working perfectly fine, like brand new.
PUT A DVD CLEANER DISC IN AND SEE IF THAT FIXES THE PROBLEM, continue to try and play discs a few more times. If not, Im sorry I couldnt help ... but I tried. AND I promise, this did it for me.

You need to convert avi files to dvd format before burning, otherwise the player won't recognize them. Google "avi to dvd" and you'll find a number of free or pay programs that will do the conversion for you.

I have the same problem. I have a 5 year warranty from the company I purchased the unit from. I am not sure if they will replace it or not. I am reluctant to buy another one with this known issue. We have enjoyed the unit for nearly 3 years with no issues.
