Your TV may be set to NTSC, if it is not, please try another RCA port on the TV, better is you try another TV. if this is not possible, please try another input like a DVD player or a VCD.

Having the same problem but your solution does not work.


did you verify if your tv is set to work with PAL or NTSC?
if your PS System is European, you must set your tv on PAL
if it's American, you must set your tv on NTSC

and it will not work if you try to plug the cables in component video as you did.

Screen losing color.. turning black and white


Your TV goes black & white, because your Wii could be NTSC or PAL which. If your Wii is PAL and your TV is NTSC then the TV will show a blac and white color. Since NTSC is for North America and PAL for Asia
