Alright, so ive tried plugging in the component cables into the back of my tv and the image on the tv wont show up. Just blue(like for when switching inputs. I tried putting one of the component cables into a yellow(vidoe) composite spot and either a grey and white really fuzzy picture shows up (with one component cable in) and a twisted balck photo for other two...

Is there anyway to solve this problem? like switch up tv settings...or do i have to buy a new tv?

Do you have Component inputs on your TV?If so then the cable should work.

If all you have is Composite (yellow) then it won't.

The reason you only see a black and white picture is you're only feeding part of the video signal in when you try using 1 lead from a Component cable into a Composite input.

If you have an HD input other than Component you may be able to get an adapter to go from one to the other.

If all you have is Composite (yellow) then I'd think it's time for a new TV.

It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
Trees flew by, me and Del were singin' little Runaway
I was flyin'

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream

I felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was un-stoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream
