Question DVD player is now black and white

Hi there,
I have just joined this site.

I have a pink Alba tv that I got from Argos a few years ago and I went to play a dvd and the screen comes up black and white. But the colour works on the telly.

The dvd is not in black and white. I've tried sorting out the colour options and nothing happened.

I live in bed due to a medical problem and dvds are pretty much my saviours.

If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it.

Default Re: DVD player is now black and white

Is the DVD player part of the television? If not check the lead, connecting the DVD player to the television, especially if it's a scart lead.
Also check you are using the correct channel, some have AV1, AV2, etc..
If it's none of these please post the model number, of the television, and if separate the DVD player.

Press your av button again and see if there is more than one av channel you get a picture on. Sometimes ther will be for example an av1 and an av1s . S would give a black and white image as its a different format.

Is it possible that your DVDs are in NTSC meaning not pal? Try a DVD you know for sure is region 2 pal if you get colour then that's your issue.
a little THANKS goes a long way
