I was just at a friends house who's having a problem with his component video. DVD player: Sony DVP 360 TV: 27" Sony Wega - don't know the exact model Problem: When we hook up the component video the picture is in black and white. We tried the following in trying to solve the problem: 1) Hooked up the DVD player through the S-VHS connector to verify that the player does in fact work. The player worked fine through the S-VHS connection. 2) Tried a different set of cables, which gave the same result. We also took out an ohmmeter and verified the cables didn't have any sort of break in them. 3) Made sure all the connections were snug on the DVD player and the TV 4) Switched the cables around so that red connected to blue, and blue to green, etc.... to see what this would do. This did provide colour in the picture, however the picture was not viewable and was basically a bunch of noise on the screen. I'm starting to think either the component out on the DVD player or the component in on the TV doesn't work properly. We're kind of frustrated, the next step is to bring my DVD player over to his place and try it out. I suppose if it works then we know it's a problem with his DVD player. Right now, I can't think of what the problem might be. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance for any responses.
