I just got my new 2017 Flashback Portable and I am having issues with the a/v out, it only displays in Black and white, why??? 

 

As for thr integrated display it works just fine and is an awesome unit, but when I plug it into the TV it comes out black and white. Please tell me how to fix it. Thanks.

This is a question for the hardware or flashback forum. Surely not the poll forum.

Price is going in the wrong direction on these. $70 at Walgreens now! So no, still haven't bought one. Ironic that they're continuing to add games and charging higher and higher prices each year, when there's (HELLO!) an SD card slot included. :dunce:

Guess you missed black friday specials.  I got my AFP 2017 for $37.  QVS has it for $46 but includes TV AUX cable and a wall charger.

Seeing as he posted that on October 30th and the US Thanksgiving is on November 23rd? :ponder:

These flashbacks are still among the best portable game "consoles" in town. We just picked some up for giveaways for our January tech party. Could be the last time though, however, since we've done them several times already.

I just ordered the 2017 version on amazon. I've read mixed reviews. I'm having issues with Stella on my computer so hopefully this cuts it for me.

I voted no, but that's because I didn't buy it.  My girlfriend bought it for me.   :grin:
