Possibly you have a 2 channel av card built on your tv have you checked all channels if so Maplins do a s-video to phono adapter that converts to colour

Hi, i've connected my TV(LG60PG30) and satellite decoder to my Bose LS38 following the directions in the manual, but all i get is the sound and black&white pictures. Can anyone help me please? Regards....


The black and white pictures are usually from people plugging into the green component input or output. If you are not doing high definition, you should be plugged into the yellow outputs and the yellow inputs, TV should be on Video 1. If you are using component video, you should have red-blue-and green from sat, bose, and tv, TV should be on Component 1.

Im trying to connect my sega dreamcast which has red white an yellow av cable only, however my insignia NS-32E570A11 led tv only has for component connection with the blue green n red, when i hooked it up,...


Sorry, this will not be easy....

You need to locate a composite to RGB converter box.

Your Sega outputs a composite signal - Video (yellow) and audio left/right (white/red).

The TV needs RGB (red/green/blue) inputs on the component connection...your composite signal divided by three. There are converter boxes out there for around 70 bucks or so.

Are you certain you do not have a yellow VIDEO IN jack on your set? Every LCD and LED TV I have experience with has at least one.

Dear Sir My Dvl 919 dvd player component output give black and white images no colour but SVHS have color images.Pls advise Erwin Koh


there are three wires associated with "component output" .. those have to be hooked up to component inputs on your TV .. not to the composite video input .. if you do hook up to composite you will get only a black and white picture .. make sure all three wires are connected correctly then select the proper input in your TV setup ..

When i hook up dvd player to a insignia plasma tv i get a picture & sound but it is in black&white.how do i get to be color


if you connect composit video from your DVD player to the "Y" jack of the tv then you will get only a black and white picture .. the composit video out of your DVD has to be connected to the composit video input of the TV .. or if you have component outputs on your DVD then you can hook those up to the "three" component inputs of the tv .. (you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..

Computer TV output (RCA) - no colour


I had the same problem and nothing worked for me until I changed laptop settings to NTSC_M
So, briefly what I have: S-Video to S-Video cable, laptop (Thinkpad R51, Windows XP, with Intel(R) extreme graphics controler ) and TV set (Samsung, quite old one). The problem was that after connecting my laptop S-Video (4 pin) with S-Video (4 pin) of my TV, I had black and white (no colour) picture.
Solution is the folowing:
- connect your laptop and TV (both S-video 4 pins)
- mouse right click on your laptop desktop screen
- in the popup menu select: 'Graphics Properties'
- "Output to"
- select "TV"
- properties "NTSC_M"

keep in mind that if your are not connected to TV, Graphics Properties don't show TV as an option. So, that was very confusing for me, as I saw similar solution somewhere but was not able to find NTSC_M settings on my laptop
Good luck

Black and White instead of color


Make sure both S-video (black round connector) and Composite video (yellow connector) are connected to video outputs not inputs. It can also be the S-video is disconected, that will give you a black and white picture. FR

I have a Polaroid DRA-01601A DVD Recorder (w/160gb hd). I am getting a video output on my tv as a black and white split screen. Can you help?


The picture output may be set for other than 480i. Try to connect the composite output, and you may get enough picture to change the setup to 480i.

Connecting my laptop to my Samsung DNie 29' Tv


Are you connecting the S-Video directly into the video output port of your laptop? S-Video 7pin? Video output port 7 pin too?

Is there an adapter for the video output port, for your laptop?

Black and White Only


I had a similar problem when I first connected my son's xbox using the Audio/Video cable (red, white, & yellow connectors). I connected the cable to the TV correctly, but incorrectly selected "component" as the input on the TV setup. Result was black and white display. Switch your TV input mode to "AV" or "Audio/Video" and you will get color.

FYI, "component" TV mode is only used with devices that use the red, green, & blue connectors.
