Sounds like a problem with the video output signal, or a change in the video settings on the device, go to your XBox configuration and make sure the video is set to NTSC.

The Xbox 360 has been working fine but having disconnected the wireless controllers the colour has gone. TV fine

Be sure to check all of your cables and make sure they didn't get knocked loose.
Provide other details. Are you using an HDTV? Did you move the Xbox 360?

My Xbox elite is just over a year old. I have no red rings. Problem is that all games played on the box are now in black & white. There is no colour on my tv screen. There is nothing wrong with the...

Check and recheck and triple check the av/hd cables. If you want to help isolate, try hooking up your xbox 360 to another tv and doesn't matter if it is hdtv or standard to test out. That method will give your answer quick to help isolate the problem. If you have hdtv make sure your adapter has the switch set for hdtv and not standard and then go in the xbox 360 dashboard system settings and see if it shows up for display. Good luck!!!

Orange ring

Okay here are a few ways that might fix the Xbox 360.
  1. Turn off the Xbox 360, wait 5 minutes, plug it back in and see if the error is gone.
  2. Unplug both the AV (audio and video) cables and the power cables from the Xbox 360 and wall. Wait a few minutes, and replug everything in and see if the error is gone.
  3. Take your hard drive out of the Xbox 360 and start the console and see if the error is gone. If the error is gone, turn the Xbox 360 back off and replace the hard drive. Then check if the error is once again gone.
If none of the above steps worked, then your going to have to spend some money to get your Xbox 360 back and running.
  1. If your warranty hasn't expired, then you can send it to Microsoft and they will fix it for free.
  2. If your warranty has expired, then you can still send it to Microsoft, but it will cost you about $150.
  3. If you don't want to spend the 150 you can spend a little bit of money and buy a guide to replacing it yourself on Ebay and such. If you do try and do it yourself remember that once you open the Xbox 360 the warranty voids, so if you still have a warranty send it to Microsoft.
Hope this helps!

Xbox 360 picture is gone but audio still there

You are most likely right, check the AUX cords (red, yellow, white) for any loose connections.
