Re: Picture in Black & White
If you are using composite cables (yellow,red & white), make sure your yellow (video cable) is into the yellow output. if you plugged the wire into the green on the back of the dvd it will give you a black & white picute. But if it is in the yellow then you most likely have a problem with the dvd player that will need to be taken to a service center.

I do not know about this machine but two general things spring to mind.
One is if the output is set to NSTC (US format) a UK PAL based TV will show it in black and white if it is unable to convert. Check the Sony's output settings in its setup menu.
Svideo output will also create this problem because it separates the colour and image parts of its signal, this again is output or input settings of both items, plus type of cable that you use in particular say phono's to Scart.
I would think its a setting or cable issue than a fault.
Ok, I'm not sure what you mean by digibox. Under what conditions are you able to see things in color? Is a digibox a seperate device you can get to work with the same connection as your player? If one device displays color on the same connection and another doesn't then that seems to rule out the television being the problem. Can you clarify a little more?
If you are using the s-video jack to connect the DVD to the TV, the jack could be loose or the wire could be bad. The s-video cable has 2 signals, the black-and-white (luminance) and the color (chroma). If the chroma signal is not getting through, the picture will be in black and white.
