Hi,
This is usually a simple fix.
you have either a problem with the AV output cable. From xbox to red-white-yellow. or scart.
the other suggestion, is that your television is set to view n.t.s.c and the console is region 2 pal. or vice-versa.
Try a different output cable, or try the cable in a different socket on the TV, if you have a spare Input. Also remove the cable from Xbox and tv end. and check for dust/debris and blow out, or clean with a cotton bud/swab, lightly soaked with white-spirit. or lighter fluid ( petrol ) lightly dampened not soaking.

hope this solution helps to resolve your problems.

regards Mike @ Compurepair.

My xbox will only play in black and white i tryed changing it to 50 hzs coluar but i cant play games


this will happen depending where you got your xbox from and where you are located.

There are multiple types of TV signals. Typcially two are used NTSC and PAL. If you have a TV and are in a country that supports PAL and you purchased say an XBOX from america then you will have a black and white screen or no game at all. Same thing goes if you are in america and say purchased the xbox on ebay from a perosn in europe. You will get a black and white game cause your TV is NTSC and not PAL.

Many game units will support BOTH signals but are locked to a signal of the region the console was intended for sale on.

I have one of the brand new xbox 360s i have a problem.. on some xbox360 games it dont play on pal 50 only pal 60 but its black and white


Does the new Xbox 360s have a HD / TV switch on the av plug like the old model did? If so you might have it in wrong position. I think you can only alter the Pal settings when this switch is set to TV. If old tv it may not work in Pal 50 at all only Pal 60.

Cant play NTSC games


If you can't play NTSC games then that means your xbox is probably a PAL version. There's not really much you can do about this except to buy PAL version games :(

BTW, NTSC and PAL refer to different regions. NTSC Is north america, while PAL is usually europe.

New tv.. no colour when playing ps3


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.

My xbox 360 is playing in black and white


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.

Xbox black and white


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.

Xbox 360 black and white


I would check to make sure your video settings aren't set to PAL-60 by mistake. It might be easier to resolve if you could let us know what leads you have and where you've plugged them in to.
