Any colour digital camera will take full colour captures whether set to colour or B&W.  It has to as it's not changing the bayer filter.  By setting the camera to B&W you visualize the scene in B&W.  Depending on the software you use it may or may not honour the B&W settings.  For eg on my Sony when I switch to B&W while taking, Photo Mechanic (which I use for importting) sees the images in B&W but Lightroom in colour and I have to convert.

Lightroom which is my raw convertor shows the images "shot in" in black and white and then quickly switches to the full color palette.

I must say it disturbed me the first few times I experienced that sequence

 NO Luck with the above.  So, I set the camera system back to Default and ALL is good now

  Thank you everyone for your help

Reach out to a dealer as the IQ160 can display images in B&W on the backs LCD. This was a feature added to the IQ160 with firmware when the IQ260 was announced.

Nothing wrong with the back the previous owner had it set to display in B&W for image review. There are times when this can be advantageous for image review depending on the ambient light available.
