Try changing to another component video input. I see black and white on my tv for instance on "video 2". But when I switch to video 3 its full color

If you are using component cables, make sure all the colors match up correctly. Note that you cannot use just one color of the component cable and plug it into a composite video plug. Both of these would cause you to have a B/W display.

Good Luck

Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing device also has some more common problems like Audio but no video problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your favourite Xbox. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem.

My Xbox 360 shows a grey screen, the sound works fine and i do have picture


Hey dude, I had this problem and found a solution on another website. Basically, I had either changed the display settings on my tv, or it had done it by itself or my new ps3 had done it or whatever, but to fix it I went into the TV menu, went to display options, on my tv it has something entitled 'Colour system' I changed that to PAL-60 and I now have colour, just to give you an idea of whether you have the same problem, try setting your x-box display to pal-50 and see if that shows colour (if it's easier to do), if it does then try then solution above! Hope it helps!

What happens when my xbox 360 arcade wont play any 360 games? My xbox 360 arcade will not play any of my 360 games. The disc are brand new. I bought the xbox 360 arcade used.


Find someone in your local area that can adjust the laser power level on the DVD drive. This is a temporary solution. A better solution is to buy a new drive off of ebay that is the same one that you have and change the PCB boards so you have the same PCB board in the new case with everything else. To see what drive you have, take the face plate off of the console. Look at the front of the DVD drive and there is a small hole on the lower right hand side of the drive. Look at the two wires inside the hole. Red and Black are a Samsung drive, White are a Lite-on drive, yellow are a Benq and a black plug is a hitichi.

This is very easy and only requires minimal soldering.

My Xbox 360 is in black and white, it also has no sound!!


The problem could lie in the audio video cable or Hdmi cable. Try replacing that or even taking the 360 back for a new one. If thats not the solution then it could be the input on your tv.
