Did all the connections. to TV. Yellow to yellow, etc, sound and picture are almost perfect. Almost, because the picture is in black and white. Called Nintendo and they are replacing the"new " unit with a refurbished unit. At this point, I'm at wits end on how to get the color display. I see all the blogs showing all the fantastic colors and man am I jealous. If anyone can help before I get the refurbished (used) unit. I would be forever grateful.

First, you are posting a question about the Wii under the PS2 heading. Problem number one! Number 2! If your TV is new enough, it might not have the connections for A/V jacks like the yellow red and white. Here is how they connect. Yellow, video, Red, right sound, white, left sound(mono)
it sounds like you may be trying to plug a standard composit video cable (yellow) into a component video input (red, green, and blue)
these are actually two different connections.
Most LCD tv's will have both options (sometimes there in weird different spots on the tv tho)
if you don't have a standard RGB (red, white, and yellow composite video input) then you may need to purchase a component cable either at a local store or you can get one for $5 on Ebay
hope it helps!
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.
Hi, i bought a wii a few days ago and like everybody else mine too was in
black and white with a grainy picture. I have a Panasonic lcd flat
screen and thought I had connected it corrected, I got somebody out to
have a look at it and found out there are some connections on the side
of the TV which I hadn't even noticed before, once I put the red white
and yellow leads in these and set the TV to AV3 everything is in
perfect colour. Hope this works for some of you.
a DVD player using red white and yellow to the TV if you get picture and sound,
then reconnect the wii red, white, and yellow to the same input. If only the wii does not
show video you will need new red white, and yellow cables. I would try a
friends red, white, and yellow cables first even to their TV where their wii is
already working. If new cables are not
working you will need to contact Nintendo as there is an issue with your wii.
You can't change the wii video to progressive without a component kit,
and since you have yellow you obviously don't have a component cable for the
Was trying to use the component option on the screen, as this had the red, yellow and white plugs shown. Eventually tried all the other options and found that it was plugged into Video 1! Works perfectly. Should try all the options on the TV!
You Plasma TV is probably an HDTV, which means you need to change the settings on your Wii to HD. Just go to the Wii menu and modify the TV settings. If you don't want to do that, make sure you connect your RCA cables to the non-HD slots on your TV so that the yellow RCA cable is in the yellow slot and not the green HD slot.
Try connecting the yellow into the white. If you do not have a yellow input then it might not be a TV that accepts video for consoles. Unfortunately these still are being manufactured. You could connect some sort of other device to the RF of the tv like a VCR or Satellite and use that for your video input. (If possible)
