My gamecube is now in black, gray and white then .

well I was playing my super Nintendo console on video 2 and I noticed that it was in black, grey and white then. So I had tried it on video 1 and it was in color. It could be the pieces where you put the av cables in or try buying a new av cable and a new rf switch then. Well the tv could be having issues then. Call a tv repair person and explain the issue maybe they can help. Do not try and fix the tv your self becuase it can cause fatalities I do not think that the graphics piece is dying but you never know.

How do I fix a gamecube controller's control stick when it is loose or broken?

You can either replace the joystick controller module if you are handy with soldering, or you can send/take it to a repair shop and they will do it. Those are the only two ways to fixing a loose gamecube controller.

Error message . to turn off power. call service. will not run game

Well there is a hardware issue with the gamecube that needs to be fixed then. Or you could buy a wii and play gamecube games on a wii like i do instead. Wii's are better than gamecubes are because they both play wii and gamecube disc's too.

I would like to play my Nintendo Gamecube. I have a Vizio HDTV. I also have a pdp cable the will connect to my Gamecube and TV. The cable has a blue plug, a green plug, a white plug, a yellow plug, and...

What you are trying to do is run your GameCube into the component hookups into the TV. What I would do first is lay out the five plugs on the end of the cord without them crossing over eachother. There should be a red plug directly next to the white one. The red one and the white one are both your audio hookups, plug them into the audio connections on the TV (that is the L and R ones and they are color-coded). The other three (green, blue, and the other red one) are the ones that are used to display the picture. Green goes into Y, Blue goes into Pb/Cb and Red goes into PrCr (again, the connections and the inputs on the TV are color-coded to make it easier). With that you should be able to play the system. If that doesn't work, make sure the red ones are in the correct place. Good luck!

There are a few possibilities but I would start by checking the av cables (the one that plugs into your tv). If you wiggle the cable while the console on does the picture change (the black and white and dimming etc)? If so you need a new one. You can get one on ebay for like $4 or even cheaper if you want to wait for it to ship from hong kong. OR if you have a Nintendo 64 or an SNES the av cables for those are the same so you can use them instead.
hope it helps
~good luck!

My Super Nintendo is showing up with black and white colors. It plays fine there is just no color, only black and white. Is it fixable?

Depending on the age or your television, this could be a simple fix. Newer TVs seem to be unable to translate the simple video colors from the Super Nintendo and thus render them in black and white. Try using an older TV.
