Check your wii configuration to make sure it is set to North America

  • 1 Go to your Wii Channel Menu and select the feature for which you want to change your regional settings. For example, if you want to change the setting for the Forecast Channel, use your Wii remote to select the Forecast Channel. If you need to change the region for the Everybody Votes Channel, click that channel.
  • 2 Go to "Settings" and press "A" to select it.
  • 3 Go to the "Nearest Location" tab and select "Change."
  • 4 Scroll to the bottom of the location list. Select "Choose from other regions."
  • 5 Choose the region nearest you after scrolling through the various regions listed. Select it with your Wii remote and press the "A" button.
  • 6 Select the location nearest you from the list by pressing the "A" button.
  • 7 Click "Yes" when prompted. If you wan to change the settings, click "No" and make the necessary adjustments.

    SOURCE: Nintendo Wii works fine on standard tv but not on hdtv.

    FOUND THE PROBLEM !!!!! The problem appears to be the Freeview somehow interfering with the Wii signal. When the aeriel lead is removed the Wii works fine, and the audio/visual signal is great. When the aeriel lead is in I have the problems. I hope this solution proves to be of use to anyone else having similar problems.

    Make sure that you have switched the Wii to component video in the system setting menus. Once you have done that, you should have a color picture in 480p! Hope this helps!

    Hook up to the Wii

    Alright so first of all, you should have gotten a cord with a big, grey power brick attached to it. Plug the end in that goes in a outlet, and the other end should hook up to one of the outlets on your Wii console. Then, there should be a cord with three branches. They should be colored red, orange/yellow, and white. On the back/front or on the cable box for your TV there should be plug-ins that are colored either red, white, green, blue, or orange/yellow. The specifications should be written under the outlets (visual, audio, etc...). Plug the white and red part of the cord in to the "audio" outlet (on your tv). The other cord (yellow/orange) should plug in to the outlet that is labeled "video" or "visual" or "screen" or something along the lines of that. The next step is pretty simple. Your Wii (should have) came with a sensor bar. It is thin, long, and black and has a very long, very thin cord attached to it. Plug one side of the cord into your Wii console, and the actual sensor bar goes on top of your TV. There are small, sticky rectangles that help with the sensor bar sticking to your TV. After you've done all that, your Wii is ready to go! Just push the power button and your ready to start playing!

    I got a wii and tried to hook it up to my toshiba tv and when i turned on my wii it was black and white and im positive i have it set up correct or if its just the cords itself the colors are blue green...

    Make sure the plugs EXACTLY match the jacks on the TV. If you plug just the green cord into the TVs yellow jack, you will get black and white. If your tv has a combo jack (uses the green of a component input, make sure that the tv is on the right input (COMPONENT and not VIDEO).

    let me know.

    I have had my wii for a while and it is black and we hooked it up to our flat screen Vizio and it is only in black and white but then when i hook it up to my older tv it is in color and i cant figure out...

    Did you use the Component cables for the new tv? If you did, you need to go into the System Menu of the Wii, and change the output to Component 480p, and that should give you a color picture with a higher resolution. Hope this helps!

    TV went to black and white when hooking up the wii

    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.

    Wii display black/ white only

    I had this problem too. It was just because I had the wrong cord that goes from the Wii to the t.v. I had a green, blue, and red for the video. And a red and white for the audio, while my T.V. only took yellow for the video. I just went out and bought the right cord that instead of having green, blue, 2 reds, and a white, just had a yellow, red, and white.
    Hope this helps.

    Wii component cable - how to connect it?

    on your tv, there should be color coded ports that tell you which cords go where but im almost 100% sure that the red and white cords are for sound and the blue and green cables are for hd video hookups.
