Check and recheck and triple check the av/hd cables. If you want to help isolate, try hooking up your xbox 360 to another tv and doesn't matter if it is hdtv or standard to test out. That method will give your answer quick to help isolate the problem. If you have hdtv make sure your adapter has the switch set for hdtv and not standard and then go in the xbox 360 dashboard system settings and see if it shows up for display. Good luck!!!

XB360 Screen colour changes and then disappears

Could possible be your television.

Or maybe your Xbox is overheating.

Try placing your Xbox in a cool spot, direct a fan at it, etc.

Or try getting a new TV or Xbox.

your 360 is playing in black and white beacause as per my view i think that you doesn't have a graphic card so buy it and then see your 360 will be able to come in colour or else connect to your pc and then go in settings in control panel and ten set it to 256 colours i am sure now onwards you wil get your games in colour and enoy them .
