My xbox will only play in black and white i tryed changing it to 50 hzs coluar but i cant play games

this will happen depending where you got your xbox from and where you are located.

There are multiple types of TV signals. Typcially two are used NTSC and PAL. If you have a TV and are in a country that supports PAL and you purchased say an XBOX from america then you will have a black and white screen or no game at all. Same thing goes if you are in america and say purchased the xbox on ebay from a perosn in europe. You will get a black and white game cause your TV is NTSC and not PAL.

Many game units will support BOTH signals but are locked to a signal of the region the console was intended for sale on.

Hooked up the wii to a new emerson tv. no cable is attached to the tv. the wii is showing up in black and white only, how can I get color

no your wii is in pal (UK EDITION) while your tv is NTSC( USA EDITION) so not compactible. So try seeing if tv has setting of switchin to pal if not sorry this means you can only by and play uk games if you got the wii in the usa its the opposite for you.

Black and white display screen

If you have an HDTV use HDMI or component to connect to get colour...if you have an SDTV and use the RGB cables unfortunately the PS3 will output NTSC signals for JApan/NA and your SDTV will accept PAL signals (EU). THere may be an adapter, but if you have an HDTV this problem should solve itself via HDMI/component cables.

How to set up a UK Wii for use in the US

This is because UK wii's use a PAL signal for video display. If your TV does not support the signal, it's always going to be black and white. You might need to try a different TV.

Check the settings on the ps3 for Pal or Ntsc

Pal is for europe and surrounding areas NTSC for America thats why it plays in black & white

Screen losing color.. turning black and white

Your TV goes black & white, because your Wii could be NTSC or PAL which. If your Wii is PAL and your TV is NTSC then the TV will show a blac and white color. Since NTSC is for North America and PAL for Asia
