Could it be that you have it set to s-video instead of composite video?

Often there is a small switch near the outputs to change between, or a setting on the setup menu.

If it thinks you are using separate chrominance and luminance then you may only be getting the lumincance signal.

Having just installed a new Wii console I have good sound but everything is in fuzzy black and white - no colour at all. What should I do to get colour?


    • With the yellow, white, and red AV cables that came with your system:

      • Did you have to use the red/green/blue inputs on your TV because it doesn't have the standard (yellow) AV inputs

      • If this is your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved it to another TV, Our experience shows that many times this issue can be solved by double-checking your connection and finding the correct Input Select for your TV or VCR.


    • With the blue, green, white, and red component cables (sold separately):

      • Review our step-by-step Wii Component Cable connection guide to make sure the cables are properly inserted and that your TV is set to the proper input.

    If you have verified the connection is correct, and are still receiving a blank or black and white screen when powering on your Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700

Why is picture black & white? Sound and picture are good otherwise.


Hi, i bought a wii a few days ago and like everybody else mine too was in black and white with a grainy picture. I have a Panasonic lcd flat screen and thought I had connected it corrected, I got somebody out to have a look at it and found out there are some connections on the side of the TV which I hadn't even noticed before, once I put the red white and yellow leads in these and set the TV to AV3 everything is in perfect colour. Hope this works for some of you.

Take care

Dear Sir / Madam, I bought my Wii in the UK, however we have recently emigrated to Canada and we brought the Wii with us. I have bought the correct power lead and the Wii starts up as usual. The program...


There may be multiple problems with your nintendo wii if there is no picture showing your AV cable may be broke i would buy a new one if thats not it return it buy a AV cable somewhere where there is a loose return policy if this doesnt work i believe UK and Canadian electric outlets are different. And yes if none of these solutions help Canadian games can be played on a UK console. I hope this helps your problem

My wii has no colour!!!


our wii turned black and white, and i fixed it by switching my AV onto AV1 setting, somehow it had gone on to AV25 and this had turned it black and white, so check out your AV menu options on your tele

Wii plays in black and white.


Check if the tv has different types of AV settings, as this affects whether the wii plays in black and white or colour.

Plug in the wii system and everything comes in black and white


Try plugging it into another scart socket, this sometimes happens when a tv does not support 60hz. the result is a screen that has no colour. You could try just plugging it onto the seperate av inputs. Most tv's these days have one scart that will work ok and in colour.
