    When I plug the PVR into the TV, I get a colour picture, but if I move the Scart plug to the second - video - output I get a B/W picture/ If I plug a DVD recorder into the video output socket. it will only record in B/W. HELP!!!!

  • gerald874 Jun 20, 2008

    I have used two different cables after visual and continuity checks and changing over end to end with both cables, and get exactly the same result ie. colour from the TV output of the PVR and B/W from the video output socket. What now?

  • gerald874 Jun 20, 2008

    The last check was only between the PVR and the TV, and I checked that the PVR was correctly set on Pal.

  • gerald874 Jun 20, 2008

    My TV is an older CRT type and only has PAL and I have double-checked that the PVR is set on PAL. The only answer seems to be that the video output of the PVR is at fault.

The best solution i can give you is try interchanging your DTV-3100HDD in another TV with same wires what you are using with this TV.if not possible check with another DTV-3100HDD in your TV with same wires. if both the options are not possible for you to do get your DTV-3100HDD to any TV reparing shop and just tell them to check your unit on their telivision.but tell them to check with your same wires which you are at present using. once you get the option where the problem is you yourself can follow the further steps to be taken.

Most likely an issue the SCART connector or the circuitry..unfortunately, it is difficult to diagnose like this..best get it by a TV repairman, who will be able to diagnose it for you..

If your TV is not in Digital it won't give you the tuning option.
Select DTV from ythe on screen menu, (like scart 1 scart 2 etc). When you have found DTV select it and then press menu for tuning.
Hope that helps.

When I switch on my dvd even the set up page is in black and white. Originally I was getting no picture so I made sure everything was plugged in. Then I got the black and white.


Check the scart cable , try connecting it to another scart socket on the tv. I would even change the scart lead to make sure its ok. I have had loads of similar problems like that caused by scart leads faulty or connected to the wrong socket.

Where to put scart leads into dvd and video player and panosonic tv


Look at the rear of the TV/VCR/DVD & you will see long black sockets where the Scart cable is connected onto, these are normally indicated as AV1/2 etc. You can then take Scart from DVD to TV on AV1. Then on AV2 take the second scart from VCR to TV or you can take the second scart from the DVD to the VCR & from the VCR to AV2 on the TV.

I have put a scart lead from the av1 socket on the dvd (panasonic) to the cable box vcr connector on the back of the cable v+box and run a hdmi cale from the hdmi socket on the dvd to the hdmi2 socket on...


Ok, first thing first if you have a cable box and a dvd player both been connected with HDMI cables direclly to the TV you just need to run a cable from the TV were it says audio out into your receiver.
This way everytime you change from Cable box and DVD the audio automaticly will change as well.

Wiring diagram for sony kdl-23s2010


i can tell you the best way but i need to know what your using ie scart leads things like that also tell me how many scart sockets in telly and in dvd and sky and vcr after you give me this info il tell you what needs pluggging into what
basing it on your telly has 2 scart if not let me know ok
1. dvd to telly via scart lead
2. then sky to vcr via scart doing it this way allows you to record sky using av channel on vcr
3. vcr to telly via scart lead
then if you want your video to record normal telly channels you need to use normal arial leads in this order
1. from arial to vcr then from vcr to telly doin this allows you to record the channels you get through the arial like 1 2 3 4 5 also this way when you choose 1 or 2 or 3 on video it will record that channel allowing you to watch whatever on sky whilst recording normal telly
If your telly only has one scart socket in the back then you need to buy a scart adaptor that converts one scart socket into 2 or even
let me know if you understand what im telling you or if you need further help ok just let me know im going out for 2 hours but will check your reply then so hope you dont mind waiting if you need help ok
