Maybe the component cables are not working, try buying a new component cable.

Why cant i get my wii console to work in color


Well it might either be the tv or the av cables that is causing the wii system to be in black grey and white then.
Picture Is Black and White or Does Not Appear Situation:
  • The console powers on and shows a black and white image on the television screen
  • The console powers on and there is no image on the television


What to do:
  • Determine whether the Standard AV Cables (packaged with the system) or the Component Cables (sold separately) are being used.

  • AV Cables

    • Ensure the yellow, red, and white cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)

    • Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.

    • If the TV does not have the yellow, red and white inputs, it will most likely have component inputs which allow standard AV cable use. Try these AV hookup steps. (How To)

  • Component Cables

    • Ensure the red, blue and green video cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)

    • Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.


Still Not Resolved:
  • If the television is continues to show a black and white image when powering on the Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

I previously had my wii on an older tv and it worked fine. I recently purchased a new tv (Sharp Quatron Aquos) and when I hooked up my wii and same cables to the tv, my screen is now a hazy black and white...


You are using composite cables(red,white,yellow) mine did the same thing. The aquos is all digital, wont read analog, which is what composite cables are.
They now make a component cable for the wii. I paid $28 at b.b.

I have hooked my wii up to a new samsung 42"


Make sure that you have switched the Wii to component video in the system setting menus. Once you have done that, you should have a color picture in 480p! Hope this helps!

I have had my wii for a while and it is black and we hooked it up to our flat screen Vizio and it is only in black and white but then when i hook it up to my older tv it is in color and i cant figure out...


Did you use the Component cables for the new tv? If you did, you need to go into the System Menu of the Wii, and change the output to Component 480p, and that should give you a color picture with a higher resolution. Hope this helps!

When I try to hook up my nintendo wii to an hdtv I get a black and white picture? The RCA cable only has 3 cables and the input on the tv has 5 outlets.. could this be the reason? how can I get it to work?


The RCA cable you are using is meant for standard resolution TV's. There should be a spot on the HD TV for the standard RCA cable. This will resolve the black and white color issue but unfortunately you will not get the benefits of your HD TV. Your best be is to get a composite cable for the Wii. You can get the cable from target or wall-mart but online shopping will typically result in a cheaper price.

I hope the info listed above has helped in some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

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.

Hi, I just purchased a Samsung series 3 330 model#LN40A330 I'am having problems with the AV inputs on back of television. I hooked up a DVD player to Component 1 it works fine Then I hooked up Nintendo...


I figured it out,
The solution to my problem was to update my video cables for my new HDTV.
I found out through trial and error that I can only have one Anolog device hooked up to the TV because with two Anolog devices hooked up the same way it must confuse the TV somehow making one of the inputs showing up in Black and White, So I purchased the color coded AV jacks and everthing works like a charm now.

TV Screen is Black and White when using Wii


Nintendo say that black & White screen is often because you need to replace the standard 3 pin lead with a 5 pin component lead for HDTVs. Have you tried this?
