Why would my vcr be playing tapes in black and white?

My VCR seems to only play tapes black and white.

There are two reasons this could happen. First, it is possible that it is connected to your TV incorrectly. Check all of the cables and connections. If that looks good, it is possible that one of the VCR's heads is starting to fail. Try using a head cleaning kit.

The most likely cause is dirty heads on the player. Another could be the cables are plugged incorrectly, or the tape is damaged.

One possible reason why a VCR will only play videos in black and white is if one of the video cables attaching it to the TV is loose or faulty.
