Hi :)

I had small white dots appear on the dashboard screen, like static... I am using an HDMI connection.
Make sure that your cables are connected correctly...
Try going to the display settings and selecting the automatic setup for HDMI, that worked for me, it looks pefect now..

my problem is that discs are not loading(but that's a different issue)..

It might work the same way if you're not using HDMI.. just select your connection again, or change connection settings and back again. But make sure that you select the correct settings if you want it to display correctly.

I hope that helps, good luck.

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.
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.

No video or sound


External Speakers



Installation steps:
These steps work for Wii, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo 64, and Super NES hookups.

Gently pull the yellow cable of the Stereo AV cable apart from the two Audio cables (red & white). Plug the yellow cable into the Video Input on the TV or VCR.
Locate an open set of Audio inputs (left & right) on your home stereo. Do NOT use inputs marked "Phono."
Plug the white cable into the Audio Left input on your home stereo. Plug the red cable into the Audio Right input on your home stereo.
Set the input select on the stereo system to match the label on the set of audio inputs. (For example, if you plugged the Audio cables into the AUX port, switch the stereo to AUX or "auxilliary."
Make sure the game is placed properly in the system.
Plug the controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck using the left most port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system. Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Turn the power on.
Turn on the TV or VCR and locate the input select. It's often called Input Select, AUX (auxilary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external. Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
Note: If you are using a VCR, you will need to set the VCR's TV/VCR button to VCR. You can do this by putting a movie in the VCR, pressing play, then pressing stop.

The game image should now be displayed on the screen. You're ready to play.

Power comes on but it only shows a blank screen. screen shows nothing at all no menu, nothing. tv works fine.


Make sure the video/audio cable is plugged in correctly. Red cable into red socket, yellow into yellow and white into white. It is easy to put these cables in the wrong socket by accident and will cause no image to appear on your screen.

Picture for Wii game is in black and white only.


What type of cables are you using? My presumption is that you're using Component Video Cables - Red, Green, Blue for video, Red & White for audio.

If one of the 3 video cables is mixed up or poorly connected, you could see a Black & White image on the screen. I suggest double checking your cables for tightness and correct color attachment. Also be sure the red video is not mixed with the red audio cable. The red audio cable is marginally thinner and probably physically attached to the white audio cable.

Wii Start but the game didn't start, screen went black


  • Is this your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved it to another TV or VCR?


  • The AV Multi Out plug that is included with the Wii will allow you to connect the console to most televisions or video cassette recorders (VCR). First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have colored holes label "Input". Though most TVs have them, almost all VCRs do as well.

    • Audio/Video (AV) inputs are located on the front or back of the TV or VCR.
    • They are smooth silver posts with the inside showing a color, usually red, white and yellow.
    • Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN.
    • The image on the left features stereo audio inputs. Some televisions have only one audio input. Click here for help setting up a mono audio connection.
    • Do NOT connect your system to anything marked OUT.

  • My experience shows that the majority of these issues can be solved by double-checking your connection and finding the correct Input Select for your TV or VCR.


  • If you have verified the connection is correct, and are still receiving a blank white or blank dark screen when powering on your Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired.

New system - no color on screen


the cable colors have to match the tv ones if you have different colors on cables then look for the label on the cables saying video or audio (red)=audio (white)=other audio (yellow)=video EXAMPLE if the cable colors are different than the tv then if the label on the cables say video and the color is blue etc. then you have to put it on the yellow putin on the tv no matter the color. If it dosent work then try holding the cables in many angles try pulling them or anything unlit they work get something to hold them up if that dosent work then i think you should buy new cables.
