Having problems with your Samsung T220HD LCD Monitor ?

Video Game image is in Black and White in Samsung T220HD

\015 I just bought a Samsung T220HD today and was trying to connect my 4 yr old's V-TECH gaming console. The picture on the TV comes only in Black and White. The Audio seems to be allright. I tried connecting two other gaming devices like "DORA TV Adventure Globe" and "Fisher Price I CAN PLAY PIANO". All of them produces only Balck and White Picture on the TV. I connected the two Audio inputs grom the gaming devices to the Samsung TV 's COMPONENT IN Audio R and L in the back. The Video from the gaming device was connected to Samsung's COMPONENT IN port marked 'Y' in the back. Is there a way I can adjust the setting on the TV to display images in color? Or is the gaming devices I'm trying to connect is not supported by the hi-fi Samsung T220HD TV? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.\015

Answers :

Connected to "Y"? That is for the rgb cables for a high def connection method. You need to find the video in connection plug, usually yellow to get a color picture for the games. Hope this helps.
That monitor only has a "component" input. What you need is called "composite". So, you'll either need a way to convert then signal to component (that could be pricey), or get an adapter that will convert your composite signal from your game device to an antenna (coax) type of signal. There will be SOME loss of quality, but this will be cheaper.

The device you're looking for is generally called an RF Modulator. Here's one from Radio Shack for $28 - http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103095

Shop around, and you may even find a cheaper one.
