SOURCE: hooked up cable box, wii box and dvd player to new

Connect the Wii and the DVD player to different ports on the TV to and any other device to the port in which the Wii and the DVD player were connected to check if the issue is with the port.

If other devices also display in black and white after connecting them to the port to which the Wii and the DVD player were originally connected then the ports require servicing.

I have a swann view security system ,,and something not working cause it only says mode not supported ,,,,, how do you fix this

Have you tried a hammer? Kidding!!! Usually this is a conflict in resolution between the DVR and the TV. You may need to lower the resolution of the TV for the particular input you are using. You may have a 1080P TV and a 720P DVR. Once they match, the issue should be resolved.

Swann camera stays black and whie,no color

If the camera has IRs and there is not enough light it will go into black and white. Check the settings in the camera menu! If those are correct and you have good voltage it may be the camera is bad. If there is plenty of light and it is still in black and white it's a bad camera and needs to be replace

I can't get the 3rd input to display color. Video 3 has sound and is in black and white. I'm using a 3 color cable to connect it to a dvd player

Try some different cables to eliminate the possibility of a bad cable. Make sure the equipment you are connecting is set for progressive scan or set to 480p,720p, or 1080i.

I have a 3 prong cord, the outlet is 4, colors in back dont match

Hook the green directly to the metal of the machine anywhere you can, like under a screw that holds something.
Hook the white to the white.
Then the red and black can go on the other two, it does not natter which one is on what they are interchangable. To make it easy, go black on black and red on blue.
Plug it in and
Then you are good to go!!
