Can you plz explain why it will be in B/W?
OK, how many connectors has component cable?
-Oh, I suppose, there are 5 of them
And what about composite?...
-Ouch! There are only 3!
And how do you intend to connect it to your composite slot?
-I will just use 3 connectors, lol, is it possible?
Umm let's imagine that it's possible... which connectors you would plug in in that case?
-At first I would connect WHITE and RED cables to my audio slots
OK, that's right, continue please
-Then I would connect another RED cable to my video slot
Heh, is it working now? XD
-Should I use BLUE plug?
What a nonsence XD
-What?! I give up... oh, wait! Is it GREEN?
Yup, that's it Try it out
... some minutes later ...
Oh man, what's f*ck? The picture is b/w!!!
-And what did you want? The manual clearly says "You should use appropriate cable for your TV"
OK, but why it happens?
-Cause component cable uses different signals than composite. Two wires transfer color information (BLUE and RED) and when you connect them to your TV you'll get no picture, because the signals are different! The third wire (GREEN) transfers brightness information and when you connect it to your TV you'll got only b/w picture.
-Wow! So I can use only composite cable with my TV?
Yes, if your TV has only composite slot and you wanna color picture you should use ONLY COMPOSITE CABLE
-Understood, tnx man
