I had the same problem, what i did is changed the channel of either my T.V. or the V.C.R. Then once you return back to the channel the color should be restored.

Wii in black and white


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.

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.

I,ve connected my wii to the led tv using a wiii component cable(5 leads) but have used only 3 of them red green & blue 1,s leaving a red & white 1 left i have good picture but no sound help please


your cable is split into two different connections for your tv... the red green and blue cables are for HD only. They are their own little set. the yellow cable is your video cable for normal tv's. the red and white cables are sound cables, also for normal tv's. I would unplug the red, green, and blue cables, and use the yellow, red (right sound), and white (left sound).

Good luck!

No picture are sound,have tried new leads but nothing


need a bit more info. Do you have TV set to the correct input that you have the Wii plugged into. What type of AV plug are you using is it standard yellow, white and red plugs or are you connecting with component cables that have extra green, blue and red cables as well as the standard ones. You need tv set to component input if using the component cables.

Recently got a Sharp HD tv and trying to connect the wii to it... the wii picture only comes up in black/white? how can this be fixed.


Hi there,
Apparently the settings on your Wii are set to be displayed in PAL (Japan), where your TV is trying to output it as NTSC, hence they are conflicting. Check the settings in your Wii and change it to NTSC to see if that corrects your problem. I would also check the connection for your AV Cables or Component Cables, they may be loose or plugged in improperly.

I plugged our wii into new tv. the screen shows a black and white picture. how do i fix it?


    What to do will depend on how you're connecting your Wii console to your TV.

    • With the yellow, white, and red AV cables that came with your system:

      • Did you have to use the red/green/blue inputs on your TV because it doesn't have the standard (yellow) AV inputs... if this is your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved it to another TV, . Our experience shows that many times this issue can be solved by double-checking your connection and finding the correct Input Select for your TV or VCR.


    • With the blue, green, white, and red component cables (sold separately):

      • Review our step-by-step Wii Component Cable to make sure the cables are properly inserted and that your TV is set to the proper input.

    If you have verified the connection is correct, and are still receiving a blank or black and white screen when powering on your Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700

Why is picture black & white? Sound and picture are good otherwise.


Hi, i bought a wii a few days ago and like everybody else mine too was in black and white with a grainy picture. I have a Panasonic lcd flat screen and thought I had connected it corrected, I got somebody out to have a look at it and found out there are some connections on the side of the TV which I hadn't even noticed before, once I put the red white and yellow leads in these and set the TV to AV3 everything is in perfect colour. Hope this works for some of you.

Take care

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.

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?
