Try setting brightness, tint, contrast and color intensity from the main setup menu.
If these have no effect, you have an internal failure beyond your reach.

Some sets have the inputs for external devices partly covered by a snap-off cover.
These are customarily in the back of the set; look for a piece of plastic that seems separated from the rest of the surrounding plastic.
This will normally have a crack at the bottom so the cables can exit with this cover on.

Our set has some inputs (more frequently used) on the side, others where described.

Tip

Connecting up your "Whatever" to your TV/HDTV


Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. Colored Yellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCART Connection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get a SCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard called Component Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Also we have with the "Component Video" it is marked "Y" "Pb" & "Pr" these simply go color to color at BOTH ends, this is where the Red, Green, & Blues, colored Ends, of the Wires, goes, remembering that this is ALL only Video. With this method, you still must use the AV, red & White, Audio, Inputs to get the "Sound" into the unit, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

OK, here is the breakdown on whet you are doing wrong.

Video 1 - Composite -
Video - Yellow
White - Audio In - Right
Red - Audio in - Left

Video 2 - Components - HD - RGB = Red, Green, Blue
Video -
Red - Red Colors
Green - Green Colors
Blue - Blue Colors
White - Audio In - Right
Red - Audio in - Left

Your GameCube will only work on Video 1, unless you buy an HD (Component cable). You will need to buy HD cables for your device connected to Video 1 to work on video 2. I will assume it is a DVD player. This is a high definition cable to produce a better picture. Let me know if you do not completely understand

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Dvds are in black and white


Welcome To FixYa!

i think that you have switched the cables of output connected wrong !
first of all play a DVD , then check the audio cable RED ,WHITE, OR YELLOW in your DVD
player just insert only audio cable, then check if the sound comes , if it comes then you have switched the cable right
then one by one try to switch the video cable in the output switches one by one , youll get black and white picture in some output switches remove and check one by one . you'll have color in no time .

i hope it helps do comment if it helps you in any manner

I want to connect a comcast hdtv box to my 50 panasonic tv.There are 3 video and 2 audio cables.Don't know how .The set is a 2002


the red and white (or red and black) are audio and plug from the settop box to the tv of the same color. the yellow jack on the back of the set top box is for video and that cable plugs into the jack of the same color on your tv. You will only need one video and one each of the audio cables.

Sony Bravia 40'' LCD 240Hz TV can't get video signal from DVD


Are you absolutely sure you have it wired up right? Are the Cable RIGHT wires color to color, is the "Correct Input" selected? Remember you do NOT use "Channels" but an AV, AUX, or External.input. Most DVD etc, use AV, IE: Yellow, (Video), Red, (Audio), White (Audio) for the OUT connections. These go color to color at TV end. And uses 3 Cables. The "Other" type of Output/Input is Component Video. This is ALL Video, Red, Blue, Green, these go color to color as well. BUT you MUST also send the Sound, Via the AV, IE: The Red & White, AV, Audio IN/OUT connections, So you in this case would have 5 cables/connections in all.

Hi,
This would be 5 pins, red-white is for audio and rest of 3 pins red-green-blue for video signal, it calls component video.
Find out red-green-blue jacks at back of TV that would be label as Y, Yr, Yb
Plug each pin in same color to get color picture.

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.
