I had a similar problem when I first connected my son's xbox using the Audio/Video cable (red, white, & yellow connectors). I connected the cable to the TV correctly, but incorrectly selected "component" as the input on the TV setup. Result was black and white display. Switch your TV input mode to "AV" or "Audio/Video" and you will get color.
FYI, "component" TV mode is only used with devices that use the red, green, & blue connectors.

make sure that if you have the hd cords plugged in the switch is on hdtv and if the regular cords are plugged in the switch on the a/v cords says tv. make sure the red cord is in the correct socket. if you are using hdmi cord then it needs replacing. also you may find some sucess by changing the output in the xbox settings.
Which TV Output do you have, mabye when you changed that PAL setting you screwed it up, and it made it black and white. If its an HD Screen make sure your switches and all of your plugs are plugged in.
if you have like a dvd player then try hooking the xbox up to it in the front where the video is for the 3 plugs then try to plug dish network in the back of the dvd where the ant in plug is at then take the cord from the dvd player and plug it in the back of the tv if this dont work let me know
There might be a problem with the jack inserts on the T.V. have you tried wiggling the jacks while there plugging in to the T.V. and also make sure the same cord is securely connected in the back of the console.
If you're in the US, then your problem is you're using a PAL system with NTSC games. Also, it may be that the system is outputting in PAL format to an NTSC TV, but I'm actually not sure if TV's are region formatted as well.
I had the same problem with my Playstion2. I found that the playstion was givin an NTSC video output but the TV was only for PAL. try it on a TV that is PAL if your gamestation is PAL or on an NTSC tv if its NTSC. Does this help?
do u have your 360 display settings at 60hz if so the tv might not be compatiable with a 60hz signel go to display setting and drop back to 50 hz and colour may show it self but remember some games wont play in 50hz if this is the case try find a ntsc to pal converter
