Yes it can, it should be under picture styles or something similar to that. However I find it better to take all my pictures in color and convert to black and white on the computer, which keeps my options open and gives me more choices for B&W conversion

Change the color mode to "Black & White". See this page of the user guide.
You might want to consider taking color photos and waiting to convert to black & white until you get them on a computer. Converting on a computer gives you much more control over factors such as contrast and luminescence.
Unless you want to colorize them by hand, there's no way to add color to black and white photos. Given a black and white photo showing a person in a gray dress, how do you know whether the dress was blue or red or some other color?
The TG-310 does not have any way of taking black&white photos, nor does it offer a method to convert photos to black&white. However, you can convert a color photo to black&white (or sepia, or cyanotype, or a lot of other effects) using just about any photo editing program on a computer. This actually gives you more control over the conversion, as you can control things like contrast and brightness.
This camera is not capable to shoot images in black and white as this is not a menu selectable feature of this camera. You can take the image in color and then download it to your computer and then using photo editing software change the image to black and white or monotone using the edit function in that photo editing program.
Unfortuneately there is no setting on this camera to shoot directly into black and white, and you are going to have to convert the files to black and white in a program of your chooseing.
Are you saying this problem *only* happens when you put the camera into black and white mode? If so, you could simply shoot everything in color, and then convert the images to black and white after transfering them to your computer. The free photo organizer from Preclick (www.preclick.com) will do this for you and more.
