Chances are your video settings are on pal/ntsc, and you're configured on the wrong one...
Maybe this can be configured, but I think it depends on your version of the wii console, did you buy it on ebay?
However, I think that some homebrew applications could fix this, altought i'm not 100% sure
It could be due to the wii's current video settings, the previous owner would have had a TV that ran on different viewing options. The black and white picture is caused by having the Wii settings output at PAL 60Hz and the TV input at PAL 50Hz or vice versa (or NTSC). Try going to the wii settings menu and try a couple of different video settings until the colour comes :). If this does not work can you please post what connection you are using for ex. AV or composite.
In order to play a different region game on a different region TV (example playing a PAL game on a NTSC tv) your tv needs to be automatic enabled. Some tv's have an option on the remote to change the input signal to PAL NTSC or SECAM. If your tv does not have that then there is literally nothing you can do apart from get a different tv with this feature.
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.
