Picture is black and white.

Since I initially plugged in my roku rxpress, it has only been in black and white. All other TV apps are in color, just not roku. I have switched the HDMI input multiple times, unplugged for & seconds, performed a factory reset and nothing worked. Any advice is appreciated.

Re: Picture is black and white.

While watching the Roku, go into your TV's settings and see if the COLOR value has been turned way down. (On your set, it could be labeled INTENSITY or something similar.) On many TVs these settings are saved separately for each input so that could be why only the Roku is affected.

Just figured it out! On my tv I changed the component 1 input to video 1 and the color came back!
