Hey tj1217,

The most common problem that may occur when you connect a video game console to a TV (especially front and rear-projection models) is a condition that is often called "image burn" or "image retention." This typically happens if the same image is left on the screen for a prolonged period of time, like when playing a video game that has many stationary images or if the game is left on pause for an extended period. In some cases, this may even be caused by test patterns, on-screen programming menus, or picture-in-picture boxes.

Before connecting your Nintendo Wii, I would first suggest checking the owner's manual for the TV itself to see if Samsung has any warnings or disclaimers against doing so. If you are unable to find your owner's manual or are unsure of what to do next, you may always contact Samsung directly for more information.

Should you choose to connect the Wii based on the manufacturer's suggestions/warnings, keep in mind that you can usually avoid issues like image burn by taking simple precautions such as turning the TV off when taking a break. The less time that the same images (or backgrounds) are displayed on the screen, the lower the risk is of image burn occurring.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Got a brand new hdmi tv, hooked it up to wii, and the main screen is white, color is poor and cannot read anything


The resolution of your TV is over 720 pixels per inch (PPI)

The Nintendo Wii console can only handle 480 PPI

You may need to buy the adapter to hook the console to the HD components (R/G/B) instead of the standard composite (Y/R/W)

Here is one for cheap on Amazon:

WHEN I MOVED I LEFT THE WII IN TACT AND ONLY UNPLUGGED THE CABLES FROM TV. NOW WHEN I HAVE HOOKED IT UP AGAIN IT IS IN BLACK AND WHITE? WHAT DID I DO?


you did nothing wrong, i had a similar problem, but then i realized that i plugged the cables into the TV in to the HD Ports.... you need the Wii's HD connector cables for HD. sounds like you had a HD TV and just plugged it into the wrong ports.

try the other ports till you get what you want, or try buying the wii's hd cable, does not cost much if you buy from like k-mart or walmart.

a 3D tv is another form of an HD TV, you need the Wii HD cable to play it right, and make sure you plug it into the HD ports on the TV to get the color and sound back.

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.
