Question about Nintendo Wii Console
Set up ok but only in black and white - no colour. What have I done wrong?
Check you've got it on the right PAL/NTSC setting.It's very likely the 50/60hz setting. 480i running at 60hz is NTSC
resolution although the PAL Wii of course uses the PAL signal. The TV
probably tries to interpret the signal as a real NTSC signal because
it's 480i 60hz and thus can't handle the colors. There has got to be an
option to switch between NTSC and PAL.
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.
