Specific info re hooking up Wii, no instructional manual. What is specifically needed to play the games?

To play the game you need to hook up three main things.
  • First plug in the RCA cables (red, yellow, white) to its corresponding jack on the wii and colors on the TV
  • Then plug in the sensor bar into the wii and place it either above or below the TV
  • Lastly hook up the power into the wii and the power outlet.

Power it up and play!

Hooked up the wii to a new emerson tv. no cable is attached to the tv. the wii is showing up in black and white only, how can I get color

no your wii is in pal (UK EDITION) while your tv is NTSC( USA EDITION) so not compactible. So try seeing if tv has setting of switchin to pal if not sorry this means you can only by and play uk games if you got the wii in the usa its the opposite for you.

I just got a brand new Wii for Christmas and when I hook it up to my tv it just comes in black and white or very fuzzy colors any suggestions on what to do?

You might want to check the cables connected in to the back of the tv mainly the yellow a.v cable. If you absolutely have it hooked up right its either your a/v cables are something wrong with the wii console itself and since its brand new I would take it back. I would make sure its hooked up properly first maybe even try it on a diffrent tv.

Hooked up my Wii to a new TV, Now color is bad

I suspect you have it hooked up wrong check, Color to color, this is what can make it green, if not that then ensure your format is ok either PAL or NTSC, check.

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.

No color

Try to change the settings on your Wii to play in 480i or 1080p witchever your tv is.
It sounds like a easy system configuration adjustment. Check both your Tv settings and if your using HD on the Wii try using just R/g/b (red,green,blue) wires. I would belive that the settings on your wii or your tv arent correct, just play around with these settings with the wii hooked up and on.
GOOD LUCK let me know if their isnt anything more I can do. MORE DETAIL CAN HELP YOU OUT because their might be 1 small thing you didn't do and can cause this.
