Welcome. I am Mike, an experienced field technician. We are now connected together on this convenient website where I am able to help you. To get started, I need to know you can see this message and are able to reply to me here...

-What INPUT are you connecting to on the back of the tv? (all inputs are labeled)

-What device are you connecting to the tv?

-If you bring up the tv menu using the button on the tv itself or the original Sony remote, is that menu in color?

the cords are plug to the color. I have moved them around and still black and white. I am not in the house the tv is in right now. It is plugged into a dvd player. I think the menu is in color

Reply back here when you are with the tv and can tell me which INPUT you are plugged into. For example-

hdmi 1 or 2 or ...

component 1 or 2 or ...

composite 1 or 2 or ...

And the model number of the DVD player.

And can verify that the menu is actually in color.
