Question about Nintendo 64 Console
Have just bought n64 have tried on 3 different tv's but only works in colour on one, the others are black and white picture only. Have altered colour settings on tv .Conected through scart and through av leads. As it works in colour on one TV only does this mean it has something to do with the compatability of the N64 with this TV and why would this be the case? Have you any idea's?
That's kinda what I figured, but my TV doesn't have the options to solve it. Although, I did buy a coaxial converter to convert the RCA outputs into a standard antenna cable. From that input option I do have the manual settings to choose the colour system, but changing it has no affect. But this poses a second problem, it was a 3rd party converter from **** Smith (I think the same product range as Radio Shack in US), and I have heard the N64 had this "black and white video" problem with many of the non-official converters. So I'm not sure if my solution was wrong, or if there is simply a hardware compatability issue. Back to the drawing board, I think my easiest solution would be to give up on the Japanese import and buy an Australian PAL console on eBay. But then I'm not sure that will solve my problem either. Does anyone know if the PAL N64 is compatable with modern LCD TV's.

In order to play a different region game on a different region TV (example playing a PAL game on a NTSC tv) your tv needs to be automatic enabled. Some tv's have an option on the remote to change the input signal to PAL NTSC or SECAM. If your tv does not have that then there is literally nothing you can do apart from get a different tv with this feature.
