Black & White Screen all of a sudden

Basically, suddenly when I turn on my xbox, the screen on my tv is black and white. 

I've tried messing round with the PAL settings and AV cable to no avail, and even clear the system cache and nothing works.

The weird thing is that I tried it on another tv in my house and it worked fine, colour came up perfect. So what is wrong? Is it my tv?

if you are using the original "component" HD cable with 6 coloured plugs at the TV end, check the position of the switch at the xbox end.
If you are running in SD mode then you should not plug in the red/green/blue plugs.
If you are running in HD mode then don't use the yellow.

Have you tried a hdmi cable straight into the tv?

It doesn't have 6 coloured plugs, just red, yellow and white so there's is no switch on it.

It's a pretty old tv, there is no HD hahaa

The only thing I can think of is try switching off Pal 60.

If that works, then think about a new TV?

Yeah, I tried the PAL 50, still black and white. Guess I need a new telly, which isn't a bad thing. Cheers for your help man

have you checked your not runnin in 1080p on a non hd tv?

How do you check that?
