Hiya Margy,
I know your query was 6 months ago,but I had a similar problem with connecting an Aiko SD set top box to our second older tv set & after 3 months only recently found the solution!
Our problem? When connected the tv picture went green! Nobody,including Tandy staff,knew what to do! (We also have an Aiko STB connected to our newer tv and it worked fine from day one.)
Anyway,it took 3 months but I finally worked it out.
Our problem was settings on the TV,NOT the STB.
Go to your TV's COLOR settings,pick a setting called 'COLOR SYSTEM' and change from 'ntsc' or 'pal'(depending on what country you're in) to AUTO.
It isn't enough to change the tv system on the STB's SETUP menu,or to change it on the TV's SYSTEM settings,you have to change it in the TV's COLOUR settings as well. Change colour system to 'auto' and see if that helps.(And of course,change all system settings on both the tv & the STB to AUTO or the right system for your country if you haven't done so) Hope this helps! Good luck!

Installed a new set top box last night and all the channels are black and white - no colour at all - confused!!

Check your cables between the receiver and your TV to make sure the colors match. If you are using a component cable (green, blue, red, white, red), not matching colors at both ends will give you what appears to be a black and white picture. I hope this helps.

Colour photos on my pc print out in black and white


Sounds like your photo program in configured wrong, The printer will draw it's setting from the default printer for the program and if you have the photo program set up to print in black and white then this is what the printer is going to do. Check the settings in your photo management software and see what they are

Printer will not print in color


If there isn't a specific accessible program for the settings of your printer, open my computer and right click on your printer. This can also be done by opening the "Control Pannel" and selecting either "Hardware and Sound" on Vista and "Printers" an Vista classic view or Xp. There you should be able to find a colour managment setting. It sounds to me that your printer is set to "Black and White Only Default" or your colour managment is set to "Text Colour Only"

Hope this helps

Epson cx3200 wrong colour


It is possible that when the printer senses not enough black ink it will swap to using the colour tanks to try and make a BLACK.

It is also possible that you have mistakenly adjusted a setting in the epson printer program to use the colour tanks to print black and white photographs.

Either of those would certainly cause the problem you describe

Check ALL your printer settings both the windows ones AND your epson ones

If it's just one video plug, then perhaps you have to set av5 as being in colour somwhere in the menus.  If you require three wires for the pictures, as blue, green, and red, then make sure they aren't in the wrong ports.
Good luck.
