    try plugging the 360 into a different scart input. if still not right try using phono inputs or hdmi if its a new tv. some tv's do not support 60hz fully, and the games which are black and white are probably foriegn? would need clarification though

If you're in the US, then your problem is you're using a PAL system with NTSC games. Also, it may be that the system is outputting in PAL format to an NTSC TV, but I'm actually not sure if TV's are region formatted as well.

My xbox will only play in black and white i tryed changing it to 50 hzs coluar but i cant play games


this will happen depending where you got your xbox from and where you are located.

There are multiple types of TV signals. Typcially two are used NTSC and PAL. If you have a TV and are in a country that supports PAL and you purchased say an XBOX from america then you will have a black and white screen or no game at all. Same thing goes if you are in america and say purchased the xbox on ebay from a perosn in europe. You will get a black and white game cause your TV is NTSC and not PAL.

Many game units will support BOTH signals but are locked to a signal of the region the console was intended for sale on.

360 only displays picture in black and white


Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio but no video problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your favourite Xbox. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem.

I am French and live in US I bought here a TV SAMSUNG Series 6 - 650- I also bought a DVD player able to read any DVD but for DVD zone 2, it's in black and white What may I have to do on TV to read DVD...


Hi,

Offhand in all probability and since the Samsung was bought in the US, it uses the NTSC color system. Even if the player is capable of multi regions including PAL/SECAM (Europe/region 2), the TV is not capable of displaying the other color system. Sorry, a multi system TV is also required.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Xbox 360 black and white


I would check to make sure your video settings aren't set to PAL-60 by mistake. It might be easier to resolve if you could let us know what leads you have and where you've plugged them in to.

Black and White Only


I had a similar problem when I first connected my son's xbox using the Audio/Video cable (red, white, & yellow connectors). I connected the cable to the TV correctly, but incorrectly selected "component" as the input on the TV setup. Result was black and white display. Switch your TV input mode to "AV" or "Audio/Video" and you will get color.

FYI, "component" TV mode is only used with devices that use the red, green, & blue connectors.
