thanks guys for your replies, well i don\'t have my T.V manual since i bought it from 2nd hand store so there\'s noway for me to find out. to the guy from NZ( i think his name was bliz)since you are my neighbour, do you have DOA2?...if so, did you tried it in 60hz mode? i like to know your situation. i think some games has that mode option and some hasn\'t. does any of your other games has that mode option? cuz i only own DOA2(spent too much on ps2). also what happens if you play a dvd that is from other country. cuz while region 4 dvds(australia\'s region code)works wonderfully, this dvd which has U.S code, plays normally but in black and white and plays perfectly in my PC(picture quality wasn\'t good at all though).so can anybody tell me what\'s the problem is??? i am getting paranoid of black and white thing......just yesterday i had a dream that was in black and white!!!!!! help me!!!!!!!!
