Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Video is black and white

When hooking my wii to my main tv which has satelite, dvd and surround sound hooked to it the video is in black and white, whether hooked through the surround sound or directly to the tv. It works fine hooked to my other tv which has satelite and dvd hooked to it. I've been told it's because of the surround sound. But why and what's the solution?

Are you using the same SCART socket that you use for your other consoles or a different one? My SCART3 input on my Panasonic telly has two different modes - one which displays in colour, and one which displays in a sort of grainy black n' white. There is a purpose to it but I can't remember what it is. :-)

Anyway, you switch between the two by pushing the AV button and then hitting the colour button which corresponds to SCART3 a few times 'til you reach the correct setting.

It probably isn't that, but... y'know. Sanity check.

Tune your tele and check you've got it on the right PAL/NTSC setting.

i think your problem is with cabling your surround sound is audio only and you wii is video and audio. i would hook up wii first and get it working first. dont plug the surround into the yellow jack on your audio video switch
good luck

I have no color


Are you using the default video cable (Red, White, Yellow) for video and sound? Make sure the Red and White are connected to the audio in for video 2 and that the yellow is connected to the video in for video 2. It might also be labeled composite video on your TV. If you are using the Red/Green/Blue plugs labeled component or Y/Pb/Pr then that might your problem with the black and white video.

As for the controller sync problem, you should press the red button next to the SD card slot on the Wii and the red button under the battery door of the new Wii remote in order to sync the two.

How to hook up wii to surround sound


Put all the wires to the tv. Now you need another A\V cable (yellow, red, white) only use red and white from, audio out on tv to audio in on surround system and set it to TV. OR Put the red and white from Wii to surround system and the yellow to the tv. this way you have to use surround to hear it. The other way you can use the tv or both. The first way is ideal if you have an extra cable.

How to hook up wii to surround sound


You need to connect your amplifier to your TV, (Video Out of Amp to video In of TV), then select the input where you connected your WII in amp.
Or you could just connect the yellow plug to the TV directly, and the white and red plug to your amplifier.
A note thou, Red and White will not give "True" surround sound as it has only 2 channels, you need to connect a digital input to the amp to get true surround.

Let me know what happens

Hooking up video


I am assuming that you are using a surround sound system?If so on the back of the satellite receiver you will have RCA cables labled yellow ,red,white uuse an rca cable to run from the output on the back of the sat box to an rca input on the surround sound unit.the inputs should be labled on the back of the surround sound unit.once you have the sat box plugged in look for the output on the surround sound (rca cables) run one set of rca cables to the rca cable input of the Tv.on the original tv remote select the tv input that is the cable from the surround sound is plugged in to . make sure the surround sound unit input is selected to the input that the sat box is plugged into.this will give you surround sound from your satellite receiver,repeat with your DVD player plugging the DVD rca cable output to another empty input on the surround sound.to switch between the sat box (satellite TV) to DvD select another input on the surround sound unit.Try to correspond the units you are plugging into the surround sound to the correct name of the component on the back of the surround sound unit to avoid confussion.any questions,Im here to help.If this works rate me FIXYA! if it helps.GOOD LUCK!
