Wii Sport display

When playing the Wii Sport disc, the display is in black and white and we cannot get color. We have double checked all connections and they are as the directions indicate they should be. How do we get it to display in color?

    I know you said you double-checked them, but this sounds like an issue with the video connections. If you're using the composite cable that comes with the system, try connecting to a different input on the TV and see if you have the same issue. I once had an issue like this when I accidentally swapped two of the cables when setting up my component cables.

..also make sure you haven't accidentally plugged the composite cables into COMPONENT inputs on your television. That will do what you are describing sometimes.

Tv is not in color


If you are trying to play a DVD in the Wii thats the problem Wii doesn't play DVDs its not set up to that one of its many flaws. If you installed the Hack to make it play DVDs then again there is your flaw. If its a game you are playing and its blk/wht and all your wires are connected right you have a bad Wii.

Picture for Wii game is in black and white only.


What type of cables are you using? My presumption is that you're using Component Video Cables - Red, Green, Blue for video, Red & White for audio.

If one of the 3 video cables is mixed up or poorly connected, you could see a Black & White image on the screen. I suggest double checking your cables for tightness and correct color attachment. Also be sure the red video is not mixed with the red audio cable. The red audio cable is marginally thinner and probably physically attached to the white audio cable.

No color, it's in black & white


HI ,
First you need to check all your connections with the help of manual that you have got along with your unit. If the connection seems to be perfect then you need to open up your unit and replace wii-fi module or bluetooth module.
Thank you!

Wii plays in black and white.


Check if the tv has different types of AV settings, as this affects whether the wii plays in black and white or colour.

My wii doesn't have full range of color.


Just because it's new, doesn't mean that it's not broken.

Double check the cables. Make sure that they are plugged in to the proper ports.

Take the Wii to a friends house and plug it into his TV. Verify that the problem is with Wii and not the TV.

Wii video is black and white


Possibly you've plugged the video into the component (RGB) portion of the input - this calls for 3 connectors (Red, Blue, & Green) and if you only plug one in from a composite it comes out grayscale. If you only have one video lead (yellow connector) make sure it is going to a composite connection which should also be yellow. Otherwise, more info is needed about your connections.
