We have our new PS3 hooked up but the screen is black and white...we can not get it to play a game in color?


Look into your PS3 output settings and make sure that it is setup right. Choose what connection you are using from your PS3 to your TV.

New tv.. no colour when playing ps3

Hi, check the setting of the TV, where you can see TV display and you will see two or three option of changing the TV mode(NTSC and PAL).it still on NTSC that is while it is sowing black and white. Switch it to PAL it will start showing co lour screen for you to enjoy the game.

Take care.

I put in a BluRay movie and it shows on the menu but when I hit X to play it, the screen goes black and will not play. PS3 games are hit and miss.

It sounds like you are having a firmware problem. This is common with blue ray. You will have to go to the ps3 site and download the firmware upgrade for your system. I think you can upgrade automatiacally if your ps3 is hooked up to the internet. Go to menu settings and look for updates for firmware or divers...

Black and white screen

I had the same problem. I fixed it by changing system settings, there is somewhere on the console where you can choose between two differant colour options. have a look around and try changing it on the ps itself.

Well it might be becuase your ps3 is european. Im no expert on the matter, but when i bought an hdmi cable and hooked it up to my hd compatible tv, i switched to the hd input (which happened to be input4 on my tv) and a message popped up saying that the ps3 has detected hd output, would you like to change settings? and it did it automatically after i hit yes.
