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)

SOURCE: Screen losing color.. turning black and white

Your TV goes black & white, because your Wii could be NTSC or PAL which. If your Wii is PAL and your TV is NTSC then the TV will show a blac and white color. Since NTSC is for North America and PAL for Asia

SOURCE: Wii will do everything but it won't play games.....

I had the same problem. No new games would play but the old games played fine. I clicked on the spinning disc icon (where the game should come up) and it prompted me to do an update. I accepted. Once the update was complete (took about a minute or 2) the new games worked fine.

How can I get my tablet to work when it turns on and starts to load it doesn't stop loading.


Lot's of people have your problem. Try Googling *Nobis NB09 stuck on Go*. I happen to have a Nobis NB09 myself and can say with utmost confidence that it is a POS. The problem, from what I've experienced and read is a whole bunch of units with defective internal SD card memory which results in the App partition not being seen or available to the operating system.

Since the reset button didn't work, there is a small chance a factory reset might work to at least get you into the set-up process so you can check the app partition memory status. I suspect, like mine, it will say 00.0 bytes available. This is the top graph shown in Settings > Storage.

Anyway to do a factory data wipe/reset do the following: with the tablet powered off,

1) press and hold down at the same time the power button
and the volume (-) button. After about five seconds you will see
the Nobis screen. Continue to hold both buttons down. The
Nobis screen will go away. Continue to hold down both
buttons until a green android appears along with green text.
Release both buttons.

2) Look at the lines of text. One of them will say something like
Wipe Data/Factory Reset. Use the volume(+) button to scroll
to it and select it by using the power button.

3) another screen should appear with a bunch of *no no no no*
lines and one line for a go ahead. Scroll to the go ahead line
using the volume (+) button and engage it using the power
button. It should then do the factory reset bit and then a
screen will come up giving the option to power it off.

4) Power it off, wait at least ten seconds and if it doesn't power
back on then push down and hold down the power button
until the Nobis screen comes up. Release the power button
and wait. Allow the boot up process to run it's course. This
could take several minutes - up to ten minutes from some
reports with the GO screen showing. If your unit is not
completely borked in probably about three to five minutes
it will finally boot into the set up screen.

If it does this enter your google email info, etc and it will eventually go to a you are ready to go screen. The first thing you should do is go to Setting > Storage and check out the top bar graph. If it's green all the way across and says 00.0 bytes then your memory
is defective and your app partition unavailable. If this is the case the tablet won't remember any changes and it won't be able to upload any updates or optional apps. Every time you turn it off and start it back up you will have to again go through the set up process. The only recourse is if it's under warranty to contact Nobis now Bidwell and see if they will issue you a RMA number so your can return it for repair. I did this and they repaired mine and
returned it. It worked for about two weeks and AGAIN the memory went bad. I tried to get another RMA and they gave me the runaround. So I told them to go take a flying leap and that I'd be letting everybody know their product is defective and they don't stand behind it.

Wii has flashing lines across screen then turns black, stays black, and can't do anything. If i am able to turn it back on it does this again rather quickly


This needs to be professionally repaired.
The problem is in the systems video card
There are only a few people that can do the process properly and fix the system permanently.
the wii console is probably the most complex system to take apart and put back together properly without damaging anything internally due to the small nature of the unit.
if you need help getting this unit fixed please feel free to contact me

When i turn the game on, it goes to the loading screen, loads my profile, but when the message box pops up saying "syncronizing nba today. please wait..." it freezes and emits a beeping noise....


go to your Wii settings and turn off the internet so there's no way to get to NBA Today. Then the sychronize part is excluded when you start loading to play.Sorry, but you can't play online though

My sandisk memory stick pro duo wont work anymore


I have a Sony Cybershot DSC T70 and it keeps saying "Reinsert memory stick" whenever I turn on the camera or slide down the camera lid. Also, whenever I try to view the pictures on my laptop it shows "Please reinsert the memory stick" something along those lines. As I have been researching for the solution, I would have to format the memory card. However, I wouldn't want to lose the pictures as I just took many as from the holiday last week. The only problem is the memory card, I tried using another memory card and it works fine with the camera. There is nothing wrong with the camera.\r\nCan someone please help me how to solve the memory stick problem? It would be great. Ty.

After a power failure, Wii will not turn on - I tried unplugging for several minutes and plugging back in, but it still won't turn on.


Really common problem, but it's just a security feature. Unplug the Wii completely, wait 5 minutes, and it should work again. Has to go through something called a Power Cycle. I live in Florida, so it's happened to me twice...lots of lightning here.

Unable to access wii settings


This happened to my Wii till i came across this youtube video. So basically, i look for a file called - wii-ntsc-systemmenu-v289 - paste that into google and you'll find links to the actual file. Burn the iso on a DVD-R then popped it into my wii. Go run the CD and it will immediately ask you for an update. Click ok and let it run. After it updates, volla! i can go to my settings and my current version is now 3.2U.

check the video cable and see if it;s properly seated. run the laptop with something that uses memory. if the video chip it going to show signs of problems, it will be more prominent when the laptop gets hot. most cases laptop motherboards have integrated video cards and cannot be replaced.
