    I don't understand :confused:

    The colour information in component is carried by all 3 cables ? If you just plug the green cable in, you should see a green picture.

    ...Not true, with component video also referred to as a YPbPr or YCbCr signal, The Y component (the green socket) of this signal is the black and white information contained within the signal. The Pb and Pr signals are colour difference signals. The Y signal contains full bandwidth black and white picture information, and the colour difference signals contain bandwidth reduced colour information.

    Reeceglen,

    I'm afraid that I find it difficult to understand your post......... other then that you've got a black and white picture.

    It's possible that the input of the projector is set to composite video. When you'd connect composite video you'd get a colour image, when you'd connect component video, you'd get a black and white image. Try checking what the input of the projector (you should find it in a menu) is set to.
