You will have to get the HD Component AV Cable. the HD output is only 480p and the standard tv signal is 480i.It not a big jump in graphics.

Have new 55ux600u toshiba. Hooked up a one year old wii and get no color


The 55ux600u toshiba hdtv has a setting that needs to be changed with the wii in order to get color.
1. Click 'Menu' on the TV remote 2. Arrow over to 'Preferences' 3. Arrow down to 'AV Connection' 4. Click 'OK' 5. Arrow down to 'AV Input' 6. Change setting from 'ColorStream HD' to 'Video' by clicking the right arrow. 7. Hit the'Exit' button on the TV remote.
This will give you color for your Wii. You will have to change this setting back in order to view DVDs in color. :-)

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.

Screen is compressed both horizional and vertical


Hi Rod,
If you can still see/read what's happening on the screen, go back to the Wii Options screen, select "Wii Settings" on the right, click the Screen option, and make sure "Widescreen settings" match your TV (if in doubt, choose 4:3). Click confirm, then click "TV Resolution" and ensure it is on Standard 480i. With these settings, the Wii should be viewable on almost any TV.

How do I hook up my Wii Console to my new Emerson


I found a better way and it works fine. I have a new 32 inch Emerson, with only one composit hood up ( which won't work with the wii) 2 HDMI's ( again does not hook up to the wii, the monitor hook up for PC, red and white ( yellow plus is not there it's for a stereo they told me), and the usb hook up ( which is more for pictures I was told by the company).The answer was to hook my RCA plus to the red and white under the composite, then hook the yellow into the green plug of the composite, and behold- my will now works fine.

Wii menu and all sports in black and white; how do we get color?


You are probably plugged into the wrong RCA slot for your Wii's configuration. If your TV is an HDTV you need to either go to your Wii's settings and change the TV settings to HD or remove the Wii RCA (Red/Yellow/White) from the HD slot and put them in the standard input RCA slot. Red/Yellow/White insted of Red/Green/White.

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.

I have a Samsung and just hooked up a Wii and am getting only black and white on the screen. How do I troubleshoot this? Thanks.


Your TV is probably an HDTV. Change the settings of your Wii to HD and it should have color. If you don't want to do that, make sure your RCA cables are pluged into the non-HD RCA slots on your TV and that the yellow cable goes to the yellow non-HD slot and not the green HD one.

HOOKING UP XBOX 360 TO HDTV


You have to use the regular red and white cords(not the yellow) and u have to use all 3 hd cords. If ur tv doesnt have a place to put the cords in, then it isnt HD. Also on the plug connecting to the 360, there is a switch that has HD and regular, switch it to HD. hope this helped.
