Thumbs down help, I only get black and white from my dvd player

help.. I just got a LG lh30 42" lcd tv. Great picture from the dish network box. But when I try to connect my dvd player with componet cables I get no picture. (great audio) I have check and rechecked to make sure that it is blue to blue, green to green, and red to red.... If I hook up blue on the dvd player to green on the tv set I get a black and white picture only other wise ... I get the no signal message. I even went out and bought new cables to see if the old (left at the house) cable were no good. still no change.. I tried a second DVD player with the same results. Is there some setting on the DVD player when hooking up componet cables, a certain channel, throw salt over my left should when looking west? (just kidding)

It depends on the DVD player. What type of player is it? (standard definition? upscaler?) What is the model number?

Did you have the player connected to another set before your bought your new TV? If so, how was it connected? Composite-video? s-video? component-video?

Try connecting it with composite connection (yellow, red, white) or s-video to see if it works. If it does, then there might be a menu setting (or a button on the player that needs to pushed) to enable the component-video outputs. If the player does require a procedure to enable the component-video outputs, it will be described in the manual.

Sounds to me as if the component video cables (red, green, blue) are not connected to the proper connections on one of the devices (TV or DVD player). You would be best advised to recheck your connections thoroughly.

Sounds to me that one device is in RGB and the other is in YCrCb. Y is luminance and a lot of times it is the green connector. Check to see if both devices are set to the same type of component signal.

BrianO and 1080Psf
Thanks, it turns out that the old dvd player that I had, you had to push Progressive scan for it to output componet. (it was rgb) Thanks for the tips guys.
