That Sony remote may if batteries removed erase what it was programmed for (several minutes) and should have program instructions on it--if not try to Google the model number of the remote for "manual" which will among other things tell you how to do what you want---Sony on their consumer site may have that manual for free or direct you to a place that does.
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.
It sounds like you have a standard problem. Is the TV you are using, that gives the black and white picture, the same as the other ie, both NTSC or PAL and both on RGB or Y-C or S-Video? Check to see what is required and set the DVD player accordingly. Hope that helps.
Check with other DVD disks, see if it play,might have bad disk in that one,like scratches,cracks,or smushes.The disk u playing is a chamerical DVD Disk right?Not burn disk?Might just go in Ur DVD player just reset every setting back to the factory setting.
are standard definition video sources. Number of lines output is 576
lines, whereas your HD TV set has 720 or 1080 lines. This difference
may result in a poorer image. However some DVD players are able to
“upscale” picture to obtain a very good picture. Check if your DVD
player has the following connectors: YUV, DVI or HDMI. For more
information, refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.
Some HDMI or DVI featured
DVD players also have an internal processor that can upscale pictures
from a DVD to 720 or 1080 lines to provide an excellent picture from a
standard definition disc to your HD TV set. Those settings are
available from the setup menu of your DVD player. Please refer to the
instruction manual of your DVD player.
your DVD player does not have those connectors and only has a SCART
connector, or S-VIDEO, or composite, there is not much to do to improve
the picture quality. Just make sure that you are not using the cheapest
cables and that the picture settings of your TV set are correctly
Some high end TV
sets have a picture improvement engine that can soften a noisy image.
Make sure that it is activated from the setup menu of your TV set.
Please refer to the instruction manual of your TV set.
If people and objects have weird white outlines around them. This may
suggest that your TV sharpness is set too high. Make the correct
sharpness adjustments from the setup menu of your TV set.
Make sure you use good quality cables and that your cables are not too long (less than 5 meters long).
The DVD player should be connected via either a scart socket or an HDMI socket. You then just press the AV button on the TV or in some cases it will switch when you press play on the DVD.
Video's haven't been tuned to TV's for years.
if it has component (red, blue, green) cables, plug one set into dvd player's "in's" and tv sets "out's'. you may have to play with the tv channels to be able to watch movie. you just change channels, go from "3" backward until you find a picture and sound.
check to see you have the cables required by the tv. usually you need hdmi or dvid for hd display. digital rights management protocols have resulted in chips in playing devices that allow only the use of the referenced cables to protect content from being copied. in some sets they default to not playing in hd, but still play something. look there first, otherwise you may have an input source mismatch. follow instructions on the dvd player first, then make sure the tv has compatible settings. if that does not solve, you have a service issue with one or both. good luck mark
