Question about Nintendo NES Console
My wife got me an original NES for Xmas - the only problem is that it outputs video only in black and white. This happens for all games, with the RF connector or with RCA jacks, multiple cords were tried, fiddled with, etc. I can't get ANY color to appear at any time. Tried with multiple TVs, too. It's definitely the NES. It's a refurbished system with a new 72-pin connector.
Can anyone pin this problem down and offer a solution?
My system has done that a couple times. Not sure what the problem was, but changing the channel in back to "4" and restarting the system would show the game in color (turn TV to 4), then switching everything back to channel "3" everything was fine again. This has worked on several occasions, again not sure why.

Thats quite a odd issue, and I have never heard or seen a case such as this. Maybe your color balance chip is fried? NES is a 20+ year old system, so I wouldn't doubt the NES may have more issues then just a lockout chip error or a new pin connector.
