I've been having problems with the color on my television. When we're watching television, everything's fine and in perfect color, but when we turn on a DVD with the DVD player, everything is in black and white. We've tried countless times messing around with the picture settings by altering the color, contrast, brightness, etc but nothing seems to work. Help with this would be greatly appreciated!
Is it a uk dvd in a uk dvd player and not a copy? if so is your tv and dvd both set to PAL or PALi mode? check both one of the two may be in NTSE mode this would cause it to be Black and White OR it could be your scart cable (it wil be a pal/ntse problem)

Some inputs on tvs won't process the color signal. Try one of the other inputs. Mine does the same. If u have already used the working ones on something else, U will need a switch to select one or the other available at Radio Shack if u can find one.
if this has only just happened and everything was fine before then try another av lead, or if you have a connection at the front of your tele to plug the red yellow and white av leads into try this instead of a scart connector
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)
It is not clear whether one DVD or all DVDs play in black and white. If it is only one make sure that the format of the DVD is correct. If it is all DVDs, given that the VHS tape and cable play with color, there could be a problem with the chroma circuit in the unit. This is probably something that a technician would need to diagnose. Good luck.
