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.

    HI,
    I just bought the PS3 today. Connected using the AV cable. The Menu came in Colors. Then I installed the games. Now When I start the game it takes few seconds and game starts BUT in BLACK and WHITE. Now I quit the game. STILL BLACK and WHITE screen. Then I removed the YELLOW cable from TV and reconnected same place ( while playing game or in MENU ) the colors are back.
    I am more frustrated to see this.

DVD Playback is only Black & White


Different areas use different colour systems. The most common types being PAL and NTSC. What I think you might have done is changed the colour type setting to one that is not compatible with your TV. If you have the manual look up the colour settings. If you haven't got the manual look around the main menu for them. If all else fails use the factory reset.

My RCA 32" TV 2001 is black and white but the menu


Ours had a problem like that. The digibox and the dvd player (anything plugged in with a SCART lead) only played in black and white but the tv menu screen was in colour.
Also anything plugged in with those three little thingies, the red/yellow/white thingies, played in colour so we just bought a converter between SCART and the three thingies.
Sorry for how useless this was, I'm not great with all the technical language. Hope it helped in some way.

VHS plays in colour and DVD plays in black and white.


there is a circuit in the color section to put the tv to black and white if the color subcarrier is missing from the broadcast signal.
it is called a color killer and needs to be adjusted.
it is for a technician to do.
it operates off the 3.58mhz color subcarrier.

Make sure that the color control level is set to the default or 50% to start with. This should be in the Video menu.

The colour for the tuner and for the encoded base-band video uses a circuit area called the colour demodulator. It is possible that this cirucuit area has failed and needs servicing.

If it's just one video plug, then perhaps you have to set av5 as being in colour somwhere in the menus.  If you require three wires for the pictures, as blue, green, and red, then make sure they aren't in the wrong ports.
Good luck.
