    If they are playing in black and white it means they are NTSC encoded and your TV cant handle an NTSC60hz signal.

    How have you got it setup because as long as you are using a scart cable connected to the RGB enabled scart socket on your TV it should be playing in colour or you could set the player to PAL playback mode, this will force all discs to output as PAL50hz which will make NTSC DVDs playback in colour but there will be a slight stutter.

    Are you using a RGB wired scart cable ?

    In powered down mode, hold in "next chapter"-button on the front panel and then press
    the power button. Each time this is done, it will shift from
    "Auto"->"NTSC"
    "NTSC" -> "PAL"
    "PAL" -> "Auto"
    (or similar order)
