sky plus box only in black and white


Standard Member
Hello all,
I have a Sky plus box used in a spare room which has suddenly stopped broadcasting colour pictures, just in black and white. All other functions are fine and the picture is still sharp, just without any colour. Has anyone had experience of this and have any idea of a simple fix?

You're absolutely right JayCee. I've just had another fiddle and instead of scart have connected by S-Video and the colour has returned. Thanks for your help!

Falty SCART output on Sky box, or perhaps someone has set your TV SCART input to S-Video rather than RGB?
Worth a check if your TV has this feature.
