This will also happen with a NTSC console plugged to a PAL tv for instance.

I would try replacing the cables. If the cable is damaged it could cause the colors to disappear. The other possilibity is that the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is old and/or damaged. If you happen to have a friend who can do some basic soldering, you can un-solder a working GPU and resolder it into your console. Hope this helps.

When I take a photo, it just shows white on the screen and each photo is white when I view them. However I can still take videos just fine! whats wrong with it? It is a Samsung ST50

Hi you have very interesting problem. It seem to me just lens unit defective. What I can tell between camera picture mode work and video mode work are depend on how mechanical shutter unit and electro shutter signal work. It is kind of technical thing to figure them out. Maybe I am wrong, but I sure also. Thanks and best regard!

My r4i has stopped working i turn on my dsi and click the icon for the r4i and then the bottom screen goes black and the top screen goes white and a picture of a red box that sort of looks like a micro sd...

I had the same problem... its actually really easy to solve. You probably downloaded the wrong kernal for your r4. all you really have to do is to download the one that matches your r4.

Black screen with vertical lines through it

Could be faulty graphics chip or faulty screen. If you can hook up external monitor and picture is fine then probably faulty screen. If external monitor shows same problem the faulty graphics chip. Take to repair shop and let them have a look.

When i turn my atari 2600 on no games play?

The Atari 2600 was finicky even at the time (early 1980s). Just unplug it completely. Plug back in and power back on. Use the reset switch if need be. Good luck and have fun!

What do I do to change from black & white to color on the screen?

Don't rate me badly for this, because this most likly is wrong, but try adjusting the TV Settings. It depends on the TV you are using and input cords (take a look at how firmly the input cords are) but try pressing menu then picture qualitity. Hope it works
