Question about Nintendo Wii Console

3 Answers

Black Screen When I turn on the console the TV knows the console is on because the Video 1 text goes away, but the screen is black. I can hear the disk spining inside and it does not stop spinning, I have checked all connections and have unpluged it for 15 to 20 minutes hoping that would solve the problem but it did not. Any suggestions?

    I bought the Wii today but the picture on the TV is in Black and White not in colour. I have checked that the leads are correctly fitted and I have turned off the modem and started up once again on several occasions

Here's the great solution, ( do not tire your self with the stupid unplug and plug again ! )

i had this before selling my wii of one day, i went to my local Electronics store, and told him to examine it, and guess what ? the mother board is gone, cost me 100$ to fix !

go to your local electronics/gaming store and let him examine it, he'll tell you shortly if am right or not, good luck !

Does the PS3 turn off?
If it stays on but you have a black screen, is it possible you have your tv set to the wrong channel?
Are you able to hook up your PS3 to another tv...preferably one that you know will work...such as a friend's tv that also has a ps3

I have a ps3 whwn i switch it on it strats up as normal,but i put a game in the screen goes black and stays black,dont understand why this is happenen as it was workin before and and it the same tv


1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.

Good Luck!

Well I Was Playing Black Ops,Then The Screen Goes Funny And Dfifrent Colours.... So I restart My Xbox And I Hear My Xbox Starting Up But The Screen Doesent Work :/

You could have a damaged cable for the AV of the TV but also your TV could be broken and for that you would have to ask another one of the experts on this site. Good Luck with your problem and I hope you'll be back Black Ops soon. All the Best.

Iv had an n64 before so i think i have a good idea of how to set it up. i've managed to tune my tv in to find where abouts it is but there's only a black screen.i can turn the n64 off an the tv screen goes...

Adjust the vertical or horizontal hold controls. This is helpful even if regular TV stations come in fine. If your TV has an automatic fine tuning control (called AFC or AFT), turn it OFF. Use the manual fine tuning dial to adjust the picture. If turning OFF the AFC/AFT causes your TV to display in black and white, then leave the AFC/AFT ON. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position. While the control deck remains ON, turn the TV off for 10 second then back on again. This resets your AFC/AFT so that it will tune in the signal from the control deck.

Move your control deck farther away from your TV. If the control deck is too close to the TV, the control deck may cause some interference.

It may have the changed somehow, try turning off your ps3, wait 10 secs, turn the ps3 back on and do not release the power button until you hear the beeps, it should reset your display.

Black Screen

It might be your AV cable or the connector for the cable. Try it on another TV just to make sure its the SNES though.

Wii has black screen and no sound when I turn it on

Make sure you have the input set correctly on the TV. If you turned everything off, it probably reset back to default input.

Screen losing color.. turning black and white

Your TV goes black & white, because your Wii could be NTSC or PAL which. If your Wii is PAL and your TV is NTSC then the TV will show a blac and white color. Since NTSC is for North America and PAL for Asia
