    they might be hooked into a component jack (green) but need to be in a composite (yellow) jack if not, could be a main board defect

    Hi electronick, I have tried them in both combinations. R/W/Y and R/B/G with same results. The TV seems to recognize one as component 1 and the other as AV. Neither comes in color. The game consoles played perfect on old TV's on the previous day. VERY frustrating to think that the new TV could be defective. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Yep sounds like a bad main board
you could troubleshoot down to a video switch or processor but thats very difficult. i would search you model for a main or video input board on a site like www.shopjimmy.com or just search the web

Wii plays in black and white


Access your TV's menu screen and be sure that your TV screen is expecting input from "AV" or "Video". If you have "S-Video" selected, this is the cause of why your Wii is playing black and white.

Wii plays in black and white.


Check if the tv has different types of AV settings, as this affects whether the wii plays in black and white or colour.

Have a Konka TV but ps2 doesnt play through it.


It may be the T.V. And make sure that the connections are with the right colors, take a light back there and check to make sure. You said the T.V. plays through black and white, maybe the T.V. is old and can only play black and white but those cables will not make a T.V. go to color.

Wii video is black and white


Possibly you've plugged the video into the component (RGB) portion of the input - this calls for 3 connectors (Red, Blue, & Green) and if you only plug one in from a composite it comes out grayscale. If you only have one video lead (yellow connector) make sure it is going to a composite connection which should also be yellow. Otherwise, more info is needed about your connections.
