Re: New Nintendo Wii
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
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
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
