    LCD has gone black & white...???
    Hey guys, I am using OS 10.3.9 and just had something wierd happen, the LCD has gone black & white. While it's starting up it is in color, and then it loads the desktop in color for about 1 second and then everything goes black and white????

    I just installed iCab web browers for Classic (did this for testing purpose for our company) and it didn't work so I deleted it, but I don't know if that install has anything to do with the screen going black and white?

    Has anyone seen this or does anyone know how to fix?

    check your settings in System Prefs>Universal Access>Seeing>Display. Is the "Use grayscale" box checked. This is the only way I know of to make your display GrayScale.

    good luck

    Welcome to the forums!

    If it's not exactly black and white, more like a film negative, you can hit Command+Option+CTRL+8 and it should go back to normal.

    *The Command key is the key with an Apple logo on it.

    IF the screen really is just black and white, check your color settings in System Preferences > Display. Make sure they're set to their defaults.

    Also, check in System Preferences under the Universal Access tab. I think it's under the Seeing tab, but there's a check box for Black and White.

    EDIT: Sheehan beat me to it, good job.

    Sometimes a restart helps...
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
