Black and white images


Standard Member
I've recently bought a Hitachi CP-S225 projector which works fine connected to a pc or a PS2. However, when I connect it to a dvd player using a s-video cable, the image comes out in black and white. I've tried two different cables and three different dvd players and the result is the same. Is there something I can do to get a dvd image in colour? Any help appreciated.

What makes/model numbers are we talking about? What kind of cable are you using? Is it a SCART to S-video? Have you changed picture settings on the player in the menu?
