At least you can see something, I can even find the option to activate it on my V2040

I had the same problem with my desktop pc. I thoght the fault is with my s-video, but it was not. The fault was in the cable... or the TV. So try to change the cable or at least put it on another TV.

here is my answer to another question about the same problem:

it's just because of the cable you use. You should either use a "patched" scart connector, or use composite output.

Check this out :

this nice tutorial explains how to do such a "patched" scart cable by yourself.

BTW, you can but such a scart connector but it's a try and miss, usual SCART connectors do not have this "patch" since it's out of the standards.

but never mind, just grab a soldering iron. I did it, it took only a few minutes, and still use it Smile
Go Out! Life is there waiting for you, not here in front of a screen :)

I had B&W problem with k 7600, and found vhs-svhs switch from my TV. If I remember right, it vas on svhs-mode and showed only B&W.... Changed it to vhs (or to svhs, cant remember) and got colors (no matter what output i selected from laptop -- ntsc, pal, that japan thingie, they all worked fine and colorfully)... So lesson is, look carefully also for TV's special settings :] Hope I helped someone.
