Re: black and white

Try holding down the power button when you switch it on, for 4 seconds it runs the optimal settings screen and selects the best option for the leads fitted. hope this helps

Nintendo and white picture

In order to play a different region game on a different region TV (example playing a PAL game on a NTSC tv) your tv needs to be automatic enabled. Some tv's have an option on the remote to change the input signal to PAL NTSC or SECAM. If your tv does not have that then there is literally nothing you can do apart from get a different tv with this feature.

your 360 is playing in black and white beacause as per my view i think that you doesn't have a graphic card so buy it and then see your 360 will be able to come in colour or else connect to your pc and then go in settings in control panel and ten set it to 256 colours i am sure now onwards you wil get your games in colour and enoy them .

Plastation 2 format disc

If this is a rental copy the most likely answer is simply that the disk is scratched or damaged to the point that your PS2 can't read it. With rental games you also need to double check that store staff placed the correct disk in the box, have a look at the disk an ensure it is not an XBox copy. This message would normally suggest however that the copy you have is not from the same region as you're PS2, if you have a US PS2 it will only play US PS2 games, if you have a UK PS2 it will only play UK PS2 games Etc. you cannot play UK games on a US PS2 and vice versa unless your PS2 is fitted with a 'mod chip' and you will usually require a 'swap disk' as well. **be sure you understand the copyright issues involved if you decide to pursue this** Another possibility is that it is a DVD R, not a legitimate disk, without a 'mod chip' your PS2 will not read games written to DVD R/RW (and doing so is most definitely illegal regardless what those to cheap to pay for there games will tell you about "backups").
