Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

3 Answers

On many, but not all, dvds the tv picture has four rows of short white lines, intermittently. The dvds play perfectly on other equipment. Looks something like this: - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I have played, without problem, the dvds on the same model dvd (sony) player on a different tv. The problem is possibly with the tv (but the lines do not appear during tv reception and not on playing some dvds). Any ideas?

There could be some interference getting into the DVD video source when playing the DVDs.
What is the model of TV that gives you those lines?
What type of cables are you using?

If the issue shows only on the other TV, possible that that TV's input port is faulty

It may be a problem in the digital section of the TV. If you find a part of the movie that blanks out, try rewinding back to it and see if it goes out again. It may also be the HDMI cable you are using. The blank out is often the result of the TV trying to adjust to the correct resolution for the program being played, and we need to diagnose why it is changing resolutions. Microwave interference and voltage fluctuations can also cause these issues.

Sony rdr vx410 dvd player playing some dvds in black and white


  • DVD's are standard definition video sources. Number of lines output is 576 lines, whereas your HD TV set has 720 or 1080 lines. This difference may result in a poorer image. However some DVD players are able to “upscale” picture to obtain a very good picture. Check if your DVD player has the following connectors: YUV, DVI or HDMI. For more information, refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • Some HDMI or DVI featured DVD players also have an internal processor that can upscale pictures from a DVD to 720 or 1080 lines to provide an excellent picture from a standard definition disc to your HD TV set. Those settings are available from the setup menu of your DVD player. Please refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • If your DVD player does not have those connectors and only has a SCART connector, or S-VIDEO, or composite, there is not much to do to improve the picture quality. Just make sure that you are not using the cheapest cables and that the picture settings of your TV set are correctly adjusted.

  • Some high end TV sets have a picture improvement engine that can soften a noisy image. Make sure that it is activated from the setup menu of your TV set. Please refer to the instruction manual of your TV set.

  • If people and objects have weird white outlines around them. This may suggest that your TV sharpness is set too high. Make the correct sharpness adjustments from the setup menu of your TV set.

  • Make sure you use good quality cables and that your cables are not too long (less than 5 meters long).

DVDs all play in Black & White


Could be because it is set to NTSC. Needs to be set to Pal.

Only black and white


If you are playing different region dvds, they can be of different color formats also
(US = NTSC, Europe = PAL). If your television is not multi-format then non-compatible
DVDs will play black and white. The solution is to purchase a mutli-format TV (accepts
both PAL and NTSC formats)

Can't get colour when playing back videos and dvd's


Is the picture still or it scrolls? You may be playing NTSC tapes and DVDs on a PAL TV or vice versa. If your TV supports multiple systems, try switching from one system to another (like NTSC from PAL).
