Good Afternoon,

I have a Dynex 32" TV. I have it hooked up to Bell Express Vu and a DVD Player. Recently I put in a dvd and when I looked at the picture it was in Black and White and it is not very clear. I have tried everything possible and it will not show my DVD's in color. When I turn it back to the tv it shows fine.

Please Help if you can.

Thanks

My guess is he's connected one of the three component cables.

There are two types of connections using RCA cables. Composite video uses a single cable that carries the entire signal. Component video uses three cables for red, green & blue. The green cables also carry the sync signals. Also, most of the video info is in the green signal, as that's what your eyes are most sensitive to and is used to create the monochrome signal. If you connect to only one of the three component inputs, you won't get proper colours. Also, some DVD players also support S-Video and may have a switch for selecting S-Video or composite. If you use the wrong switch position, you may not get the proper colours. What model DVD player do you have?
