I think the tv is about 6 years old.
When the dvd is playing it works in colour!
We can't, for some reason, get a signal on the tv - we usually run Sky through and watch that - but the message that is coming up is in black & white.
Hope this helps!
Hi again Aric,
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly and letting me know what the problem is likely to be. I've informed my husband and he's going to get our local aerial man out who will, hopefuly, be able to sort it.
In the meantime, many thanks for your input.
