|Subject: someone please help! it's black & white! Wed Dec 17, 2008 12:56 am|| |
I have a panasonic hvx200 and I just bought Ikan V8000HD monitor.
My hvx200 provides only rca inputs..which is yellow, red and white!
First of all, I bought three bnc->rca adapters and I attached those items just like picture below.
And then I bought a component cable so I can put it into rca inputs on my camera.
Now I get black&white visuals. I tried to used S-video and it works fine. But isn't S-video is for SD quality? I want to use component cable but I'm not sure it turns out black&white.
Someone please tell me how to do it correctly.. It would be great if someone take a picture of camera so I can understand easier. I've been suffering this problem for about a week. Please help!! Thank you so much!

From the look of your pictures and descriptions i think you may be doing it incorrectly. From the first picture you have the composite cable in the right place on the camera, however, on the monitor you have it in the component in, it should go on the top row in the video in.
I have taken some pictures of our HVX200 with the ikan monitor to see if this might help you. The HVX200 requires a break out cable for its component. In the picture i have the breakout cable connected to the Component out on the right of the Video inputs.
In this picture I have the cables plugged up in the component in.
I hope this helps you, If you still are having problems with the black and white shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll make sure to remedy it.
Let me know how it goes.
