Check for loose connections on the equipment. I had the same issue with a Bose Lifestyle 38. Turned out to be a connection that had pulled out.

Check the video connections on the back of the Bose unit. I have a Lifestyle 38 and had an issue with video only playing in black & white. Turned out to be a loose connection.

Look for tape residues on the head drum (metal cilinder inside). Clean it with extreme care or use a cleaning tape. If any tape get stuck inside recently the ground shaft might be bended and it causes grainy pictures.

Vcr only plays in black and white

Hi Ryana,

Check if the recorder is set to output in 'S-Video' or 'SuperVideo' mode, if your TV doesn't understand S-Video you'll get a grainy B&W picture. The VCR should be set to output in PAL for the UK and most of Europe.

Hope this helps
