No color on Gl2

Im in PAL-land (Spain) and the analog outputs of my GL2 showed just fine on the PAL TVs, for a while. One day I lost the color on the analog outputs, and havent recovered it yet. Firewire is fine, and the viewfinder and LCD are also fine, but for some reason Ive lost the color on both S-video and composite outputs. Could this be a NTSC/PAL thing catching up with me? Has this happened to anyone? Thanks!

So you are using the NTSC GL2 is PAL country.

Do you plug the cam straight into your multi-system TV or VCR? Could also be the TV or VCR that has a problem.

You've checked the cam to see if isn't set to B&W, I presume?

Yeah - not what I intended, but Im stuck here for a while.

Im plugging the camera straight into a PAL TV which has no indication that it is multisystem. Its a Sony triniton about 5 years old. The picture was (surprisingly) fine until somehow the color disappeared. Ive tried it on another Sony TV, with the same result, so Im thinking its either the cam or something with Sony TVs.

I dont believe the cam is in B&W - the VF shows color and so does the firewire output.
