    This happened to me once in similar circumstances - and it was when I was trying to feed an RGB scart into a non-RGB socket.

    The cabes probably aren't faulty - but you might need to change your sky+ box settings (or your scart settings on the panel) to make sure you're not sending incompatible singals down the wrong cable type).

    ZEDZED,
    I have also just tried that, changed the picture from pal o rgb - no change and changed scart control from on to off, my DVD player has not got the options to change any thing like that but yet that still is B&W too!

    As for changing the scart settings on the panel how do i do that....?
    thanks in advance!

    Can't remember off the top of my head - but I'm pretty sure it's in the manual.

    Select the input you want to configure and press "setup" on the remote and go from there ..... :)

    yes S_video into a scart expecting composite or RGB you get B&W picture scart needs to be told to accept S-video which you have found out how to do it.
