First of all, make sure that you have the colors of the component cable matched correctly. You can switch the Pr and Pb cable and still get a picture although in the wrong color.
Secondly, go to the TV menu... the menu should still be in color. If it is in B/W then you might have a hardware issue. Try adjusting the custom color setting so that you get a blue picture or red picture. There is an option for adjusting the color called "blue mute" it should give you a perfectly blue picture. If you still don't get any color than it is a hardware issue. It could be the Main Board or the Control Board.

A lot of newer TVs only have a single composite input. The reason is it is a very low resolution.The Wii can be upgraded to component cables (Red, Blue,Green, White, Red) if you have one of those connections open. It will give you a better picture when using the Wii. Another option is an A/B composite switch for the two components. Both of these can be found fairly cheap on the internet. I would recommend the cable upgrade.
Your TV has two sets of AV inputs. One on the side and one at the back. The Wii has a 3RCA cable ( Yellow / Red & White ) . Connect these jacks to the corresponding color sockets on the side input of your TV. Select that input on the TV and your Wii sound and picture should come on. For the DVD player you have to get a 5 RCA component cable. This cable will have 5 colored jacks, connect the White & Red to the Audio in of the TV and then connect the Red/Blue/Green jacks to the component video input of the TV.Do the same at the DVD's end also. Setect that source on the TV and you should hear the DVD sound and picture.
This is actually really not good don't use a composite with a component input go to the store and buy an HD cord for you're wii if you need help ask the person in the store for a component cable for the wii.
it depends on which cables you want to use for your wii. there is the standard A/V cables that are yellow, white, and red; or the component cables which are red, green and blue with another white and red.
This is not an answer persay, but you should make sure you using the correct component input. You should have 1 RGB and 1 YPbPr. The Wii would use the RGB input. To test this plug the Wii into the component jacks you have the cable box plugged into.
Not knowing the Wii, but being familiar with the symptom, I would guess there is a setting change in the menu of the Wii that will let you choose component or composite output. It sounds exactly like a composite signal is being fed, over the component cables, to a component input. Check the menu settings and consult the manual for hooking the Wii up to a component television.
sounds like the screen size on the tv and wii needs to be adjusted. look in the wii settings to adjust that and also see if there is a output resolution that you can change to tell the wii that you're using component. component uses 480i-1080i resolution so there shouldn't be much that you have to change.
