Re: brand new xboxdoes not play in color on TV set at...

Does his TV have other RCA in ports? If so, he should try connecting the 360 to the other one as it could be defective. If he connects a DVD player to the same ports, does he get the same problem? What sort of cables is he using? If he's using a component cable (RGB or YPbPr), he should try using a normal RCA cable. Also, when connecting the 360 to the other TV sets, did you use the same cables he used when he connected it to his TV set? If not, you should try switching the cable.

Got a new xbox 360 and kinect, have to change my tv settings to play the games i have but then get a very different picture with very dull colours

Ah, this happened to me when i got a 360S. You have an old 360, no? And you used the HDTV conmponent? Go to the console settings, and fool around with the display a bit. You'll find what you want. Just make sure you're using the OLD 360 cord or an HDMI cord; the new ones are **** and only designed to work with extremely old TVs.

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error

Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

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.)
