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.

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.

Screen goes black.


It's a hardware defect. you can't repair that. if your monitor in under warranty you can go for repair.

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!

Black and white


try holding down the power button when you switch it on, for 4 seconds it runs the optimal settings screen and selects the best option for the leads fitted. hope this helps

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
