Question about RCA 20F510TD 20 in. TV/DVD Combo

2 Answers

DVD output is Black & White

When trying to copy a "home made DVD" (not a store bought or pirated copy) the copied DVD is black & white. The TV is showing Color, but output is apparently black & white.

Have you had this before?

    It was an RCA DRC 8335 VHS/DVD player recorder. We solved the problem by using a "stand alone" DVD player and not the TV DVD player. It copied fine then.



    The TV DVD player would show the DVD fine, in color, but something is wrong in the output circuit, causing it to put out black & white. Reading posts on here, it seems the RCA 20F510TD TV has a lot of problems.

Fix 1: If your TV has a shared component video (3 RCA) and composite video (1 RCA) input, the DVD player will get black and white picture if you connect the DVD with composite to the input when the TV is set for the component. You need to set the TV to composite in the TV menu.

Fix 2: Disconnect all cables from the TV > then reconnect the colored cables to the same color-coded jacks on the TV. If the DVD player still has no color, replace the cables if necessary.

Fix 3: For S-Video cables, unplug the S-video cables on both ends and check if there are any bent or missing pins, which will cause DVD player black and white with no color errors.

Fix 4: For DVD disc damaged or broken, use Leawo DVD Copy to make a new copy of it. This software will retain all original elements on your DVD, including colors and 3D effect.

Bose lifestyle 48 dvd black and white only

Go to the "Bose" menu screen viewing on your TV (make sure no dvd is in the player) Go to your Video controls and check your output, chances are, if your using the component output your player is set to "S-Video". Should fix the problem. Hope this helps. If it's still not viewing correctly, post a comment and I will help you some more

Are you trying to copy a comercial VHS tape to DVD?
If you are then macrovision copy protection system on either the tape or in the machine is the reason for the loss of colour.
There's not a lot you can do about it. If you want to copy commercial material you will need to transfer it to a computer and get a program to do it. But unless it's unavailable it is cheaper to buy the DVD version I have found and you will get better picture and sound too!
If it does it with a none comercial tape (ie something recorded of the TV). Then it could be a head fault or something else. In which case try cleaning all the heads guides etc first.

White line and very, very dirty copies

the nealy black copies sounds like the drum is going, try adjusting the exposure to light, if it comes out with the whole page the same way but just lighter than change drum. White line sounds like there is something on the coronas.
