Are you perhaps using component cables to hook the dvd to the tv? Sometimes if you have the blue switched with the green, it will make the picture b&w

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.

    SOURCE: DVD Player won't play movies in color

    It could be the av cables being faulty or shorted. Try replacing them with another set and see if it goes away.

    SOURCE: VHS plays in colour and DVD plays in black and white.

    there is a circuit in the color section to put the tv to black and white if the color subcarrier is missing from the broadcast signal.
    it is called a color killer and needs to be adjusted.
    it is for a technician to do.
    it operates off the 3.58mhz color subcarrier.

    SOURCE: Picture only shows in black & white when playing DVD

    Same problem with an older JVC player. One end of the S-video cable was loose. Pushed in in tight and everything ok again. Cheap fix if it works for you.

    Only the right side of my Panasonic Plasma TV (TC-P50UT50) is displaying. The left is is black with some white flickering lights. Sound and video on the right side are perfect.

    Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
    To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement.

    When playing DVD on panasonic plasma TV, the color is black and white

    Consult the owner manual for the player (and or try it on another set) as many players have settings that can cause B&W or a single color display for the image.

    When I play a DVD, it is in black and White. When I play the tv it is in colour. Can't get the DVD to play in colour!

    You have one of several possible problems, ranging from best case scenario to worst case scenario:
    A DVD video that is supposed to be black and white - try a different disc.
    Some setting on the DVD player is set to monotone - check manufacturer's instructions
    A bad set of cables connecting the dvd player to the tv - test a known good set of cables
    A bad output on the DVD player - test DVD player with a different TV.
    A bad input on the TV - try another input if possible, test TV with a known working video input.

    Panasonic TC-P42U1 plasma. Lost it's vivid colors basic color is black and white and green and blue if tint color tone etc. Is turned up. However a blue ray video plays with full color. Could it be a lose...

    I have an old Toshiba TV and was going to replace it with a new plasma because it has suddenly (the week of July 19, 2010) lost color. It has only green and blue tint. Changing the "tint" on the menu didn't help. The color comes and goes relative to nothing that I can measure, such as how long it is turned on, etc. Reading other complaints from owners of Plasmas, I am thinking it is cable related. I have Charter Cable. Playing a DVD, I have to readjust the tint back to normal. Hope this info gives clues.
