Question about Microsoft Xbox Console
After hooking up my Xbox recently, I'm only able to get a black and white picture. Any idea what would make the output appear in black and white only?
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.

I'm sure it's the xbox OR the connection settings somehow.
