      Black & White TV

      Since having Sky fitted my TV turns to Black & White after anything from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
      When I switch back to digital or analogue the picture turns back to colour. Then back to Sky and it is still B & W. Usually okay by next day.
      Sky have fitted a new box, I have changed the Scart lead but the problem still persists. Is this a problem with the dish / wiring or is it my TV (32" LCD by Dell - 1 year + old)

      Re: Black & White TV

      Could be the scart lead, or could be the scart connections on either the box or the tv

      I know if i mess about with me scart settings, ie AV3S or similar the picture is black and white, however under AV3 then its fine

      Something like that might be the same problem that you have - if it is then find an AV source that is workable and stick with that

      cheers

      if it is the scart lead you could try using a coax connection from the digibox to the TV and if the colour comes back that solves it.. naturally you need to disconnect the scart lead to do this.

      Is your sky box set to output RGB or PAL - whichever it is, try the other?
