Have checked all the cables, any ideas what's wrong? Thx

Option 1 Go into the Display options and make sure it hasnt changed to PAL60hz as this would give a black and white image on a TV that didnt support it.
Basically fiddle with the display settings then change back to PAL50hz.

If that doesn't work, try
Option 2 Try using a new cable, it may be faulty.

If THAT doesn't work
Option 3 The gpu solder may need reflowing.
Check here -> xbox-experts.co.uk/tutorial/heatgunning-with-isolation/

If you aren't geeky/brave enough to reflow the gpu solder, take it to Gamestop (not GAME!) and see what they recommend.

Good luck smile

No problem, all chances to use geekdom to a positive effect should be taken grin
