Many players no longer have a composite (yellow) output nowadays so the component outputs (red, green, and blue) need to be used. You probably connected one of these to a yellow input on your TV which resulted in a B&W picture. If your player doesn't have a yellow output, you'll have to use the red, green, and blue outputs and connect them to the corresponding inputs on your TV. Audio will have to be connected separately as ImRizzo mentioned (red and white - not to be confused with the red component video output).

Then that's the composite output and it should route to a yellow input on your TV with just one lead (two others red/white for the audio). You can get a three lead bundle which includes the two audio if you like. Don't plug anything into the red/green/blue TV inputs.

Probably like jkkyler described - you were running the yellow to one of the red/green/blue inputs on your TV.

Try yellow to yellow and let us know what happens. If that is already the case, then something else is going on which is producing the B&W picture.

That is the correct input but is that one coming from a YELLOW output on your dvd player?

Inputs clearly marked red & white are audio and video is Yellow

Ok, on that TV the green connection for the component video is used for the A/V input and it sounds like that is what you are connected to from your description. Now you need to select the A/V input not the component input. The newer TVs have eliminated the older A/V inputs as a separate set of jacks for economic reasons and they use the green component jack as double duty, but to tell the TV that you have connected a composite video device to the TV rather than a component video device you have to select the A/V input and not the component input.

WOW.... that box is an old one if it has the "S" video output on it.

A new DVD player would be a better choice, one with a true HDMI or RGB component output. (those are outputs on that box, not inputs)

Now days they cost very little.

If you want an even better video source go with a BlueRay player, they will still play your DVD's and the BlueRay videos (and audio) will blow you away.
