My xbox will only play in black and white i tryed changing it to 50 hzs coluar but i cant play games

this will happen depending where you got your xbox from and where you are located.

There are multiple types of TV signals. Typcially two are used NTSC and PAL. If you have a TV and are in a country that supports PAL and you purchased say an XBOX from america then you will have a black and white screen or no game at all. Same thing goes if you are in america and say purchased the xbox on ebay from a perosn in europe. You will get a black and white game cause your TV is NTSC and not PAL.

Many game units will support BOTH signals but are locked to a signal of the region the console was intended for sale on.

On my r4i ver 1.3, i was unable to play many games as most of the games when loading comes out with a white screen. is the reason due to the games download being corrupted? i am able to play some game...

it is beacuse the games are more recent/newer than the r4 version 1.3 so it cant support thewm, all you need 2 do is go onto the r4 offical site and download the newest r4 version and then the games will/ should work fine :)
Hope this helped!

Was made for a different country, theres two types, Pal and Secam, some tv's allow for both options, however sounds like you have to exchange for a version more suited to your country.
