Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

My Wii was connected to a normal-old TV and was in black and white. Okay, so I then tried to see if connecting it as a HDTV version would work (in the settings)....well, then everything turned into "snow---black and white fuzz" on the screen. HOW can I change it back to black and white? Do I just have to buy a box to make my old'ish tv into an HDTV one? Something like that???

What happened when you selected HDTV is that you activated the output to the HDMI output. This turned off the regular connection. Press the power and reset button simultaneously when turning on the unit to return it to the factory default settings. Otherwise, you'll have to connect it to a HDTV with the optional cable to connect it (you'll have to purchase that as well) to go in and change the settings back.

No sound on tv


Okay please just give me some more info so I can help. I assume that the TV sound works okay when watching normal TV, right? That would mean that no matter what game, anything coming from the Wii is completely silent, right?

How is the Wii set up on the TV? Do you know if it is an HDTV or just regular TV? Do you know if it hooks up with composite cables or with an HDMI cable?

Here is a link:

The HDMI cable is the black one and the other colored 3 are composite,.

You can choose either way they are both good enough for HD on your Wii.

Best regards,

The picture appear black&white. I have HDTV.


I had this problem with a 'universal' console component video cable. Had a B&W Wii screen, and couldn't set the Wii to HDTV.

Spent most of an afternoon switching the Wii between LCD televisions, annoying Samsung tech support (who are a very, very good tech support system, by the way) and so on.

Took back the cable and the guy said, "Did you remember to turn the little TV/HDTV switch here?"

There IS a tiny little switch on these combo cables, right on the common point of the various console connector plugs. I switched it. It worked. All is good again. Hope so for you too.

When you have just the cables as you describe, you are using composite inputs. By default, yellow is video, red is right audio, and white is left audio.

Nintendo Wii works fine on standard tv but not on hdtv.


FOUND THE PROBLEM !!!!! The problem appears to be the Freeview somehow interfering with the Wii signal. When the aeriel lead is removed the Wii works fine, and the audio/visual signal is great. When the aeriel lead is in I have the problems. I hope this solution proves to be of use to anyone else having similar problems.

I just bought a new plasma tv. I cannot seem to


You Plasma TV is probably an HDTV, which means you need to change the settings on your Wii to HD. Just go to the Wii menu and modify the TV settings. If you don't want to do that, make sure you connect your RCA cables to the non-HD slots on your TV so that the yellow RCA cable is in the yellow slot and not the green HD slot.

Hooked up cable box, wii box and dvd player to new lg 50 inch 720p plasma tv... all external components work, however, dvds and wii only show in black and white - no color...


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.

My wii connection is black and white


You are connecting it into the wrong input. The Wii comes with a RCA cables that should go into the Video (composite) input that has yellow, red, and white. The component input will not work with the RCA cable input. Plug your Wii into Video1 and you should get the right colors. There should be another HDMI on the side of your TV, there are inputs located both on the back and side of the TV for your convience.

Connect tv to nintendo wii


Do you have cables for the wii? I would try the cables in the package to connect your wii to your tv. Your tv should have a analoge connection. In form of a scart or in form of three plugs. If you are using a scart just click it in the tv and in the wii. With the three pulgs you must connect all three plugs in your tv, they have matching collors, white in white, red in red and yellow in yellow. That would do the trick.

Wii black screen


The following fix should help users who do have problems with some virtual console games for the Nintendo Wii that display only a black screen after starting them while the sound remains normal. This does not work in all occasions but should work if you get the Wii menu when you press Home and works only for games that received an update for the interlaced mode.
Try out the following to see if this fixes the issue. Start the game normally until you see the black screen. Connect the Nunchuck to the Wiimote and press Home to see the menu options. Now press A + 2 + Z together which should result in a short “ping-like” sound.
This should have activated the interlaced mode. Leave the menu and you should see the normal game screen and not the black screen anymore. To change the mode again press A + 1 + Z using the same method as above
