    We switched from Wii Sports to Guitar Hero last night. Everything was ok. Then this morning when we went to play the guitar game it would go to start, turn black and white with a grid of Wii symbols, play the opening tone and stop. We then sturned everyting else and tried again with the sports and guitar. It was the same result.

    My Wii just started showing the black and white for no apparent reason.  I have unplugged all the connections and replugged them in - but no change.  I have also tried to move the connection from AV2 to AV3 but this didn't solve it either.  Am writing this as I have now headed to the internet for help to solve the problem.

    About a week after buying guitar hero for the Wii, my TV would turn black and white. When you switch to regular TV it also is in black and white. If you turn the TV off for a while the TV is back in color but the Wii is still black and white.

    Are you using component (RGB) cables to connect your Wii to your television? If you are, check all the connections to make sure they are plugged in good. If you are not using the component cables, make sure that you either haven't accidentally plugged the Wii into the component inputs on your television, or that you have your television set for component.

    Good Luck.

Phone screen goes blank to a grey color (externallY) .

same problem, broke my screen, ordered a new screen off ebay and replaced it. now it works fine most of the time but sometimes external display freezes. sometimes goes black, sometimes goes multicolor pixelated (full screen, in blocks, or lines) when this happens sometimes touchpad still works, others not. removing battery usualy temporarily fixes.

Screen goes to black with a ghosting of the last moving image.

This is bad real bad, when this happens it means a board known as the DMD board is failing and must be replaced, the board can run about $650.00 to get it and have it instaled
