    Make sure the DVD player is configured to output s-video from the SCART socket, rather than RGB or composite. This will be an option from the 'video' or 'picture' settings, at a guess.

    Secondly, are you sure the DVD player puts s-video out on SCART? Some have a dedicated s-video socket instead (or in some cases, as well)

    Third, is the plasma configured correctly, ie set to 'auto detect' the incoming picture. If it's set to PAL only and you try and send it NTSC, it'll appear black and white.

    It's unlikely a brand new cable is faulty, but it's still possible.

    That happens because the cable just "transport" the raw signal without doing any conversion job.
    It's the common behaviour for a scart s-video cable, I've never understood why they keep selling something that it's clearly not working. (Well yeah it works if you are transporting a s-video signal with the scart, that is unlucky anyway)
    Man you should use some punctuation sometimes!
