I hooked up my red ,green,blue component wires and red ,white audio wires from the back of my sony dvd which has the red blue green out put and the red ,white audio to my samsung smart TV in the component section and I can't get color on DVD ? What is the problem .the back of the TV says component and the DVD says component so I don't know why this isn't working. I even tried going from my TV to my Xfinity cable box and it has a yellow video input that I ran from a yellow video out on my DVD that is seperate from the red,blue ,green section The Dvd works but I am only getting black and white. Any help greatly appreciated.
If your TV has a shared composite - component video input you may have to set it to component in the TV menu. Since the composite video out of the cable box works I would guess that it's set for composite
