My DVD is playing my videos in black and white .. It's a Panasonic tv model is tc-L32c5


follow the steps. God bless you
Insert a DVD lens-cleaning disc into your player and press "Play" to clean the DVD laser, eliminating picture problems due to read errors. Do not use a CD cleaning disc as the brushes on these discs can damage your laser.

  • 2 Wipe your DVDs clean of all visible marks and dirt using a lint-free cleaning cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner. This further fixes read errors which can damage the quality of picture and sound.


  • 3 Disconnect your DVD player from the TV or receiver you have it connected to. Reconnect the DVD player directly to the "AV" or "Video In" port of your television, firmly pushing the plug into place, to eliminate possible noise from the receiver and ensure a clean connection.
  • 4 Connect your DVD player using an S-Video, component video or HDMI cable. Standard yellow/red/white RCA connectors cannot carry the high-quality signal that DVD discs are capable of transmitting, and will display a particularly poor picture on flat-screen high definition televisions. Use an HDMI cable, if your television and player support it, or a red/blue/green component video cable.
  • 5 Press "Setup" on your DVD remote and enter "Picture Settings." Make sure your DVD player is set to display images in the correct screen format ("Widescreen" or "16 x 9" for HDTV sets, "Standard" or "4 x 3" for older square sets) and scan mode. If you are using a DVD player that supports "Progressive Scan" on an HDTV or flat-screen set, activate this setting; for older sets, choose "Interlace" if given a choice.

    When u put a dvd in it shows coloured,but regular tv channels shows black and white


    Most likely the cable between the cable/satellite box and the tv is not fully home. Push all the connections firmly home and try it again.

    DVD picture is in Black & White only.


    Are you trying to play an NTSC disc in a PAL player, If so,your player has a switch or
    on-screen setting to select the output format for NTSC discs,

    Or maybe you have connected one of the component outputs (Y, R-Y, or B-Y) of
    your DVD player to the composite input of your TV.

    Trying to connect sony dvd player to hdtv


    You will need some cables first. It's really not that difficult once you know what each cable does.

    Since you're only connecting from the DVD player to a receiver, this should be simple.

    There are 4 solutions depending on what cables you have.

    Composite - Yellow, Red, and White ended connectors.
    S-Video - Black 4-pin connectors.
    Component - Green, Blue, Red and sometimes extra Red, White for audio.
    HDMI - heavy cable with a wide/flat connector.

    Composite connection - Connect the yellow end to the yellow Video Out of the DVD player and to the DVD Video In on the receiver. Connect the Red audio connector to the Red Audio out of the DVD player, the White connector to the White Audio out of the DVD player, and then connect those to the Red and White Ins for DVD Audio on the Receiver.

    S-Video Connection - This is the same as the Composite video connection, but connect the black 4-pin cable into the S-Video out of the DVD player and into the In for DVD on the back of the receiver instead of using the yellow video cable. The S-Video cable is a video only cable and uses the same audio cables (the red and white ended cables) for audio.

    Component Connection - On the back of the DVD player, connect the 3 video cables that are Red to Red, Blue to Blue, and Green to Green. These will be labeled Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. Connect these video cables to the inputs of the receiver the same way Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. The audio connection is the same as composite and there should be a place on the DVD player that will tell you what audio is for Component. This is also the same on the back of the receiver.

    HDMI Connection - This one is the easiest to connect as your audio and video are in the same cable. Plug in your HDMI cable in the back of the DVD player (there should only be one) and then to the HDMI connection for DVD on the back of the receiver.

    Now...once you have your connections made, turn on your DVD player, set your receiver to DVD, and enjoy.

    If your receiver does not have video inputs, you will need to run the video lines directly to your TV while the audio lines go to your receiver. This will mean you will need to set the receiver to DVD as well as change the channel of the TV to the input you have the DVD player plugged into.

    I hope this helps.

    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.

    No audio


    yeah sometimes we all get fustrated with stuff like that, the trick is not to hit the thing with a hammer,,

    any way ensure that yougot the cables connected propperly in the L/R audio output from the dvd player (RED AND WHITE its alo labeled) and connect it to the in in the tv..

    check your player settings (audio settings and and check your tv audio settings to ensure they match) some HDTV's only use 5.1 or higher

    if your dvd remote got a volume controll on it ensure the u\volume is all the way up and that it isnt muted.

    try your player on a next tv to ensure its working , if it is the problem is with your settings as stated above
