I hooked up my atari, it comes on but all the games are playing in the wrong color.

Well you could try cleaning the gamepacks out with qutips and rubbing alcohal
It could just be a glitch then.

My ps2 has no color when im play games but i can watch DVD's with no problems

Hi, these are reasons or problems that can affect ps2 color.

Its the model games your downloading. the unloaded didn't upload it right.
The problem would have to be your PS2. When you modded it, the PS2 must have had something changed in it.
That thing that you changed may not allow it to read the color on certain PS2 games. You either have to buy a new PS2, or figure out what you did wrong when you modded it.

its something with the chip u used... i did the same thing and replaced it and im working fine now... u should think about getting magic swap... requires no modding to play station and i hear from people that it works well

The thing in the back that hooks up to the back of the tv or cable connection needs to be changed

This may sound stupid and completely obvious, but mine occasionally play without color as well. Try jiggling the RGB cable from the back of the console.

because its the way they made them the only difference is the type of film they use other tha that game play is still the same

go to game stop or a game shop 4 them to fix or it might be that your psp had been dropped or something that happened to it .

Hope it helps.

PS3 (250GB version - only 4 weeks old) - Games play fine...All of a sudden theres no sound at all - Ive tried a music CD this plays without sound as well. Checked HDMI cable. WHAT IS WRONG?

try a hard reset press and hold the power button for 5 seconds this will reset it too factory (only the settings you wont lose game save data) see if that helps

Super Nintendo video out problem

I'm guessing the game is bad as the other games are all still working, right ?

Can you try the game on someone else's system ?

XBOX flashes color spots on screen during game play..

it may be your tv, not your 360, check connections, or fix geometric settings (if you live near a fault, or if you have your tv on top a mini fridge.)

No color

Try to change the settings on your Wii to play in 480i or 1080p witchever your tv is.
It sounds like a easy system configuration adjustment. Check both your Tv settings and if your using HD on the Wii try using just R/g/b (red,green,blue) wires. I would belive that the settings on your wii or your tv arent correct, just play around with these settings with the wii hooked up and on.
GOOD LUCK let me know if their isnt anything more I can do. MORE DETAIL CAN HELP YOU OUT because their might be 1 small thing you didn't do and can cause this.

No color on tv when xbox on

Try hooking the xbox up to another tv to see if you get color. If you do it isn't your xbox. If you dont then it's your video cables going bad. Hook a dvd player into the same spot you had the 360 in on your LCD see if you get color. If you dont then its your TV, if you do then it's your xbox video cables going bad.
