If your using the component conections (red, blue, green/red, white) to connect you wii console to your lcd then check your connection making sure the red and blue is connected properly within the right inputs, red in red and blue in blue. The red connection next to the white is considered to be the right audio connection rather than the pr connection. If your using you AV or composite (red, white and yellow) cables that comes in the box make sure you connect horizontally and not vertically in its correct input.

Conecting Wii to a Phillips lcd tv. rwy cords. but the picture is in black & white ?? i have sound. tried different connections eg: red to green conections & the only one that works is still black...


it sounds like you may be trying to plug a standard composit video cable (yellow) into a component video input (red, green, and blue)
these are actually two different connections. Most LCD tv's will have both options (sometimes there in weird different spots on the tv tho) if you don't have a standard RGB (red, white, and yellow composite video input) then you may need to purchase a component cable either at a local store or you can get one for $5 on Ebay
hope it helps!
~good luck!

The picture appear black&white. I have HDTV.


I had this problem with a 'universal' console component video cable. Had a B&W Wii screen, and couldn't set the Wii to HDTV.

Spent most of an afternoon switching the Wii between LCD televisions, annoying Samsung tech support (who are a very, very good tech support system, by the way) and so on.

Took back the cable and the guy said, "Did you remember to turn the little TV/HDTV switch here?"

There IS a tiny little switch on these combo cables, right on the common point of the various console connector plugs. I switched it. It worked. All is good again. Hope so for you too.

New Wii is in black and white on my Samsung tv...any suggested fix?


    What to do will depend on how you're connecting your Wii console to your TV.

    • With the yellow, white, and red AV cables that came with your system:

      • Did you have to use the red/green/blue inputs on your TV because it doesn't have the standard (yellow) AV inputs.

      • If this is your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved it to another TV, Our experience shows that many times this issue can be solved by double-checking your connection and finding the correct Input Select for your TV or VCR.


    • With the blue, green, white, and red component cables (sold separately):

      • Review our step-by-step Wii Component Cable to make sure the cables are properly inserted and that your TV is set to the proper input.

    If you have verified the connection is correct, and are still receiving a blank or black and white screen when powering on your Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700

My Wii is not displaying in colour - the screen is coming up as black and white?


Check how you have it connected in the back of your TV. Refer to your TV user manual for the correct connection diagrams. I have a new Samsung LED and I had to connect the Wii different than my older Samsung LCD.

Are you using RCA Cables, HDMI, etc..

Our display is only coming in black & white.


Refer to your TV manual. Make sure you have the connections in their proper places. My new Samsung LED required a different set-up than my older LCD tv. I called Tech support and they referred me to the TV manual which depicts the correct way it should be connected to the tv.

Why is picture black & white? Sound and picture are good otherwise.


Hi, i bought a wii a few days ago and like everybody else mine too was in black and white with a grainy picture. I have a Panasonic lcd flat screen and thought I had connected it corrected, I got somebody out to have a look at it and found out there are some connections on the side of the TV which I hadn't even noticed before, once I put the red white and yellow leads in these and set the TV to AV3 everything is in perfect colour. Hope this works for some of you.

Take care

No color on my TV!


You should plug the Wii into the AV1 or 2 on the LCD TV and make sure that the RCA plugs are pushed in all the way. Also make sure that you have the plugs properly inserted into the back of the Wii. If all is connected verify the settings on the TV's menue and make sure that they are all correct. You may also want to verify the settings on the Wii menu.
