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.
Many large HDTV's will have alternately colored slots to enable 5 connector HD cables. You can plug the Red White and Yellow cords into non-matching ports (green, black, etc) until you have color picture and stereo sound. This will not damage your TV or Wii. You can also buy cables for your Wii that will match the connectors on the back of your television, as well as give your Wii higher resolution capabilities. Which you can purchase at any electronics store.
please check your cables and make sure that they are on the right ports. simple solution. nothing wrong with your wii. New Tv can be a little confusing. remember just keep your wii on and test the ports till you get the right ones. If other devices are working such as dvd player then you need to replace the cables
Are you using the Red/Green/Blue cables or are you using the Red/Yellow/White?
Also make sure you are matching the colors up correctly. If you find that you only have two of the three RYW, try hooking it up to another AV jack on the side or front of the new TV. If you are using the RGB, sometimes in low light settings, the blue and green are easily mixed up.
Another thing you might want to try is changing your settings on your tv for NTSC as it might be set up for PAL.
You probably don't have something hooked up right or connected all the
way. If you are using component video cables, make sure that all of the
different plugs are plugged into the matching socket on your TV. Also,
make sure you have your TV on the right channel (3 or 4) if that's how
you have it setup.
Otherwise, you will want to look at the input settings on your TV and
make sure you are receiving the correct input, and if you have your Wii
plugged into a VCR instead of directly to your TV, try hooking it up
directly to see if it works.
If that doesn't work, try using a different TV - especially if it's a
TV you know works in color with a Wii. If it is still in black and
white, you might need to take it back to the store and exchange it for
a new one.
check you've got it on the right PAL/NTSC setting.It's very likely the 50/60hz setting. 480i running at 60hz is NTSC
resolution although the PAL Wii of course uses the PAL signal. The TV
probably tries to interpret the signal as a real NTSC signal because
it's 480i 60hz and thus can't handle the colors. There has got to be an
option to switch between NTSC and PAL. Are you using the same SCART socket that you use for your other
consoles or a different one? My SCART3 input on my Panasonic telly has
two different modes - one which displays in colour, and one which
displays in a sort of grainy black n' white. There is a purpose to it
but I can't remember what it is. :-)
Anyway, you switch between the two by pushing the AV button and then
hitting the colour button which corresponds to SCART3 a few times 'til
you reach the correct setting.
It probably isn't that, but... y'know. Sanity check.
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
