    Same problem here. New TV also, and now PS2 and Wii are both playing in B/W only. We have ours run through a Philips ConnexHD system that connects multiple sets to the TV. HELP! What did we do wrong in the connections?

    I have the same problem. All I can find out is that you need a different connector for HD TV it's called a HDTV Wii Component/Composite AV Cable. Trying to find one I can buy today but not much luck. You'd think it would be written on the front of the box considering how many people are likely to get new tellys over Christmas.

    Not sure it's the answer but seems the only possibility, it works OK on the other telly that isn't HD.

    Hope it helps.

Had the same problem, went to Currys and bought a switchable scart adapter, on the receipt it's called a BELKIN 3 RCASCART ADAPTER £14.67. Plugged it in, sorted. Hope this helps, happy playing.

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.

Why is my Samsung tv only showing black and white picture?


If the normal TV channels are OK then the wrong input has been selected. Probably set to component instead of composite.

I have just purchased a used Wii system and every thing works fine except that it is in black and white help.


Hi Anne,

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.

Regards,

Omeil

How to set up a UK Wii for use in the US


This is because UK wii's use a PAL signal for video display. If your TV does not support the signal, it's always going to be black and white. You might need to try a different TV.

Black and white picture


Yeh, Ok.
What you need is called a component cable if your TV has 6 ports.
If it has 3, the one your wii came with.
Hope this helped
