    i will turn on the system, but it will freeze once i start playing a game. i reset and go back to the main menu and i get these green splotches everywhere and it will keep freezing. when it doesnt do the green splotches it looks like something from the matrix. ive tried the intercooler and keeping the vents open and away from walls but it still doesnt work

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.

My screen on my nes is blurry how can i fix that


If your screen shows a blurry image it can be a few possible things (and only these things).

1. The first and most obivous problem is being on the wrong channel - for example, if you are on Channel 3, but the switch on the back of your system is set to channel 4, you'll see a VERY fuzzy picture; simple switch to the other channel and it will come in clear.

2. Now...assuming you are on the correct channel, does your television receive other pictures clearly (for example if you change to a normal broadcasting station and it is still blurry, then it is a problem with your TV and not your NES system). Another way to test is to simply switch TVs and see if the same picture problem occurs.

If 1 and 2 are not the problem, them we know the problem is with your NES system and this should be an easy fix.

If you are using an RF Switch, then it is most likely the pin on either end of the switch has become bent (or was bent and now is bent back) and will no longer give a clear picture. The easiest way to test this is find a set of AV cables (any av cables - these are the red, white, and yellow cables that often hook DVD players to television). Find a set and just take one of those ends and connect it to the side of the NES system into the circle that says VIDEO and take the other end of that same color and put it into your TV into the circle that says VIDEO (note that the colors don't always match up on the newer TVs, just make sure that if you are using the yellow end of the AV cable and plug it into the video on the NES that you plug the other yellow end of the av cable into whatever color on the TV says VIDEO! Then change your tv to the cannel for that AV slot (usually AV 1 or INPUT 1). Turn the nintendo back on and see if the picture comes through clearly - if it does, it means you had a bad RF switch and you can either get a new one, or just use AV cables instead!

One of the above problems IS the problem - I've repaired over 1000 NES systems and 95% of the time it's just a bad RF switch (so the AV cable test works best)

My xbox 360 will start up and has sound but no picture


First try removing any accessories (for eg HD drive, hard drive or network adaptor) from the console and turn on 360. Plug each device back in one by one and turn on to check which device possibly causing the problem.

You should also try using another 360 AV cable sometimes this is the culprit.

If the above methods made no difference then the Xbox 360 might be overheating and which will eventually lead to RROD (Red Ring Of Death - 3 red ligthts) or E74 error message (1 red light) indicating repair.

You can buy the repair kit off ebay from £4 - £7 and carry out the repairs yourself with plenty of Youtube videos on the net just google it or if dont dont feel confident i can repair for you.

If this helps please vote...thankyou!

When I play Halo 3 it turns green. and other games get blurry in background, I just bought Fable 2 and I cant play that because it is too blurry, its not a scratched disc, and I rmoved dust in my 360


Hi,

you may have a faulty AV lead, from xbox to TV.
or the graphics chip is failing, if you have a composite lead ( red-white-yellow-green-blue ) check that the switch is set to hdmi correctly. this is on the side of the oval connector from xbox outlet to tv lead.
try tuning into a different tv channel, check that the lead isn,t broken internally.
If this does not work, assume that the GPU Or graphics chip has come loose, and obtain A RROD repair kit.

No picture yet i can hear sound green effect before it happend


First thing would be to make sure that you're only using the yellow, red, and white cables, but seeing as how you said you had picture before, I'm guessing that's not the problem. The 360 uses an automatic recognition for the hardware to make sure that it is set to the right input. So, in essence, it won't be that the settings were changed. I would say go pick up a new cable and see if that's the problem, it sounds like it is. If the cable doesn't solve it then I would say it's time to call Microsoft. For the guest with nothing working, call up Microsoft, I really don't know what else the problem could be except for hardware.

No picture or sound on the tv


where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!
