N64 colors do not work when hooked up to Vizio TV.


You probably have the RCAs in the component video hookups. Its easy to confuse them as they are similar ports. They are usually red, blue, and green. Look for the yellow, white, and red hookups. Those are for RCA connections as they don't work in the component hookups for HD video. i.e. blue-ray, PS3 That will cause the video to look grey and grainy.

Why cant i get my wii console to work in color


Well it might either be the tv or the av cables that is causing the wii system to be in black grey and white then.
Picture Is Black and White or Does Not Appear Situation:
  • The console powers on and shows a black and white image on the television screen
  • The console powers on and there is no image on the television


What to do:
  • Determine whether the Standard AV Cables (packaged with the system) or the Component Cables (sold separately) are being used.

  • AV Cables

    • Ensure the yellow, red, and white cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)

    • Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.

    • If the TV does not have the yellow, red and white inputs, it will most likely have component inputs which allow standard AV cable use. Try these AV hookup steps. (How To)

  • Component Cables

    • Ensure the red, blue and green video cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)

    • Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.


Still Not Resolved:
  • If the television is continues to show a black and white image when powering on the Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

Tv went to black and white


It may be a wire has come loose. Check your video inputs. Especially if you have animals or small children. On certain video inputs you lose color if one wire comes loose.

Black and white grainy output to new samsung lcd


Your DVD player is using a PAL or NTSC variant which is not supported by your display. Somewhere hidden in the depths of the options in the DVD player should be an option to change the composite output type.

Grainy printing down left side


Toner cartridges have the shortest life in the laser printer. So for every image quality issue try replacing that color that you see the defects in.

Xbox original not showing color screen


Put the xbox on another tv. If it is in color then, the AV inputs may be bad. If that is the case, you may need to buy an AV-UHF/VHF converter, or plug them into a VCR.

When I input s-video cable into RCA tv, the screen shows just black & white color, not full color that used to show. I tried to connect my laptop and dvd player with new s-video cable, but it didn't...


Take a flashlight and magnifying glass and look at the S-Video connector on the back of the TV. Check to see that there aren't any pins or other debris stuck in the four holes.

One pair of holes is for the brightness (luma) signal, which gives you the black and white picture, and the other pair of holes is for the color (chroma) signal, which seems to not be functioning.

If there's nothing in the holes, then the internal connection may be flakey. Try gently wiggling the plug on the TV side and see if color returns, even briefly.

Does your TV have other inputs like component YPbPr?

RCA input suddenly changed to black and white.


Mine is doing the same thing. I have a 2 year old RCA 27" and I was told to do a "hard reset" I am trying it right now. All you have to do is unplug the power cord to the TV for 4 hours. See if that will help.
