Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii video is black and white

I moved our wii from a LG Hi-Def TV to a Sanyo Plasma. It worked fine with the LG, but displays on in black and white with the Sanyo. I'm sure I've made an error in my hookup, but I've tried every combination and still get only black and white. Audio is fine. Any suggestions?

Sometimes depending on the region of the game and whether your tv can play at either PAL or NTSC will determine if you can play on the game in colour. However if its Black and white at the wii home screen it maybe that your on the wrong setting e.g the Hertz your using.

Possibly you've plugged the video into the component (RGB) portion of the input - this calls for 3 connectors (Red, Blue, & Green) and if you only plug one in from a composite it comes out grayscale. If you only have one video lead (yellow connector) make sure it is going to a composite connection which should also be yellow. Otherwise, more info is needed about your connections.

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/67807343
