Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii in Black & White

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.

    I called Nintendo and spoke to a tech for about 20 minutes before he suggested a replacement. I looked into the Nintendo Community, but I didn't see my problem posted. I'm not saying it wasn't there, I just didn't see it. While searching online, I saw, in another posting, my specific problem. The tech he spoke to also recommended a replacement. Unless it's a "motherboard" issue, I just feel there has to be an answer to this problem. The unit works, it's just in 1950's black & white. In certain games, color has a way of affecting the players success. In black & white, it's hard to decern the various shades of grey.

    I recently bought a Wii as well. Everything is perfect except the color is black and white. I'm nearly 100% certain the TV and the cables are hooked up correctly because I switch in the PS2 and it works fine.

How to hook up the wii cords


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)

Conecting Wii to a Phillips lcd tv. rwy cords. but the picture is in black & white ?? i have sound. tried different connections eg: red to green conections & the only one that works is still black...


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!
~good luck!

I just got a new 46" vizo & dont know what ports to plug my wii into? i know the cords are red white & yellow but not the ones on the tv. totally confused.


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.

Why is picture black & white? Sound and picture are good otherwise.


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.

Take care

We have sound but no picture on our Wii


Connect 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 wii.

Connected to tv but no Wii screen when we switch


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!

Connection of wii to 37LF2500 tv


The cables you are describing are composite (Red, yellow, white) and most likely you are plugging into a component input (Red, Green, Blue) try looking for another input set, possibly on the front or side of the TV. Make sure to correlate the colors, this should also provide sound for you.

I have a 42" Samsung and am getting a black and white picture without sound when I try to connect the wii. There is audio left and right (red and white) but no yellow outlet.


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)
