My XBox 360 will not play in color...

I own a two year old XBox 360 and it no longer plays displays the games in color. The change has been gradual...the color has been fading for a few weeks now and now it only shows in black and white on a color television. I've replaced the AV cord and it still does not play in color. This is very frustrating because I've called XBox customer service and they are telling me it is going to cost AT LEAST $100 to fix the problem. Has anyone else had this problem and, more importantly, resolved this problem relatively inexpensively?

    Yes, I've tried it on two other televisions in my home to no avail. As far as the 3 yr. extended warrenty, the Microsoft rep I spoke to said the extention only covers the 360's "red rings of death" problem.

I had the same problem. Turned out to be the cable. Swapped it for another one I happened to have from another xbox that died.

I have noticed my 360 shows blacks as purples now on the computer monitor I have it hooked up to through the HDMI cable and I have the elite system. I have yet to hook it up to my tv and so far the only game I really can it see it on is Frontlines: Fuel of war

Brand new xboxdoes not play in color on TV set at school.


Does his TV have other RCA in ports? If so, he should try connecting the 360 to the other one as it could be defective. If he connects a DVD player to the same ports, does he get the same problem? What sort of cables is he using? If he's using a component cable (RGB or YPbPr), he should try using a normal RCA cable. Also, when connecting the 360 to the other TV sets, did you use the same cables he used when he connected it to his TV set? If not, you should try switching the cable.
