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.

please check your cables and make sure that they are on the right ports. simple solution. nothing wrong with your wii. New Tv can be a little confusing. remember just keep your wii on and test the ports till you get the right ones. If other devices are working such as dvd player then you need to replace the cables

How to set up a UK Wii for use in the US


This is because UK wii's use a PAL signal for video display. If your TV does not support the signal, it's always going to be black and white. You might need to try a different TV.

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.

This is a graphics processor problem. Nintendo has a very good warranty service, I suggest you go to Nintendo.com and set up a repair. It does not take more than 2 weeks usually. The repair is free under warranty period, or under $90 if out of warranty. Good luck, I know this is the right solution as I have done it before.

swap your av cable with a friends and see if it still happens. if it doesnt u no that the av cable is broken and youll have to buy a new one, if it still happens, then theres a problem with your wii. it could possibly be the graphics card is damaged from overheating, or just bashed around. nintendo will propably fix it for free if the wiis dodgy
