I got a Samsung HT-Q40 (Home Theater System with 5 disc DVD Changer)for Christmas and it's all hooked up and sounds great with just one problem. It is playing dvd's in only black and white. There is no menu option to adjust color. I have tried switching around some cables on the back with no such luck. Any help would be appreciated.
try to download the user manual here http://www.samsung.com/us/support/download/supportDown.do?group=audiovideo&group_cd=&type=hometheater&type_cd=03030000&subtype=hometheatersystems&subtype_cd=03030100&model_nm=HT-Q70&dType=D&mType=&model_cd=&menu=download&menuLink=/support/download/supportDown.do&prd_ia_cd=03030100&disp_nm=HT-Q70&isEqualsY= let us know. thanks.
You could try cleaning the drive with a dvd cleaner disk and also a can of compressed air to blow into the drawer. It may just be dirty. Good luck! I hope this helps you.

It's part of an HTiB (Home Theater in a Box). Get the speakers that it's designed to mate with. HTIB's are not like components. Due to proprietary connectors and who knows what else under the hood, they are not intended to be mixed and matched with other units.
This unit has standard speaker connections so you might be able to find some speakers to hook up to it, but its original speakers were rated at 3-ohms impedance and the spec for the amp is also at 3-ohms. You probably won't blow anything up trying them, but don't expect earth-shattering volume from typical 8-ohm speakers. As the saying goes, individual results will vary.
How exactly did you expect the TV to be the speakers for this thing? It doesn't have an outbound audio connection. TV's are traditionally the part that makes pretty moving pictures while other electronics and speakers take care of the audio end.
If you need the manual, go to retrevo.com, register, find it using >>> Samsung HT-Q40 <<< and download it for free.
