Try plugging in to a modern tv (most will be able to kick out a picture from us) or set your tv to 60 hz
or get a rgb scart lead for your Wii

Reset your Wii Video Settings to the Default


One annoying thing about the Nintendo Wii is that there is no way to reset the video settings once you have changed them in the Nintendo Wii System Menu.

It will not detect which cables you are trying to use and just tries to use the last settings that you set it to.

So, if you have changed your Nintendo Wii from using the regular cables that came with the system to using component cables, then switch back to a TV using regular RCA cables (these are the yellow, red and white cables) then you need to reset the settings on your Nintendo Wii to the default video settings.

You can reset your Nintendo Wii video settings to use Composite (or RCA - Yellow, Red and White) cables by doing the following:

1. Make sure the Nintendo Wii is powered off and a red light is showing.

2. With the power off, unplug the video cables from the back of the Nintendo Wii, leave them plugged into your TV (these should be the RCA/Composite cables)

3. Press the Power button on the front of Nintendo Wii. Make sure the cables are still unplugged.

4. Keep the Nintendo Wii powered on and plug your cables back into it with it still running.

5. If all went well, the picture should appear normally now.

6. Once the picture has reappeared, you should go into the Nintendo Wii Menu (the Wii button in the bottom left hand corner) and change the display back to 480i to make the changes permanent.

I hope this tip helps!

I dont know if it is my wii but my tv is black and white/grey and white what can i do to repair it?


If your TV is only black and white while playing on the Wii, this is indicative of a problem with either the A/V cable or the A/V ports on your television.
If you have a friend who owns a Wii, try using their cable, or change the A/V jacks to a different set of ports on your television.
NOTE: The A/V jacks are the red, white, and yellow plugs that plugs into your Wii on one end and into your TV on the other. If, for example, these jacks are under VIDEO1 on your TV and you switch the viewing mode to VIDEO1 to play Wii, then try moving them to a set of A/V plugs under VIDEO2. If this is an older TV, there may be only one set of plugs on the TV itself. Try the console on a different TV. It may be time to get a new television. This often happens on older TV's.

Big and Stretched picture


It is most likely that somehow the aspect ratio of your display has been changed. If you go into the wii system menu by pressing the wii button on the wii channels screen, then go into the display settings and alter them as the guide shows here:

Nintendo WII


Nope. UK TVs are set up for PAL video format, which isn't compatible with NTSC format.
The only way to do it would be to get a modchip for your Wii (I personally don't recommend this), or find somebody with an American TV.
