Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Wii is showing in Black & White with sound.

I haven't played in about a month. I didn't have the power cord attached for that time and when I went to turn it on, the screen is now in black and white. Nothing has changed other than I didn't have it plugged in. All settings are the same. I can hear the Wii music in the background.

I would check your video connection. And make sure all cables are secured. It is possible the video cable may be bad. Try it on another TV, if it works, it may be the TV

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!

Hi. my wii has been working fine for the last year or so. we havent changed the cords or fiddled in any way. the unit will turn on fine, and play the games fine, but is coming through in black and white,...


If you haven't fiddled with the cables at all and haven't removed them even if it is just to replace them, then unfortunately it sounds like it needs repairing.
You could try unplugging the cables again and seeing if that works, I find things like this can sometimes be resolved by a quick cable off and on.
The official Nintendo stand on this issue is here.
This is the number for the Nintendo customer services for America: 1-800-255-3700.

Hope this helps.

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.

I have a Samsung tv that has no place to plug in the yellow cord. It is a new high dollar HDTV what do I need to get the wii to play? No, there is no yellow hole, the picture is black and white, with...


The only way I was able to get around this was to plug into use component 1 then plug the yellow into the green on the far right. The problem I now have is that I can only use component 1. When I plug a dvd or wii into component 2, it shows still shows up in black & white, even when I plug the yellow into the green. I am not a happy Samsung owner.

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.

I purchased a wii machine and can't figure out how to set it up.


to hook up the wii, plug the censor bar into the back of the wii and the a/v jacks into the tv/vcr/dvd player(line the colors right(red with red, white with white and yellow with yellow))and connect the opposite end into the wii. Then take the power box(big gray box with outlet cord attached) and plug it into the back of the wii and wall, turn on and play some great games
