Did you install it before you changed the settings on your TV/Wii?
You might try putting the old cable back in and making sure the settings are correct.

My wii has nothing but a black screen when i turn it on

verify that the a/v cables are hooked up properly to your tv and that your tv is set to the correct input so you can see the video and hear the audio.

If you have already done this then go ahead and use a different set of A/V cables to make sure your using a good set.

If after this you still get a black screen then your mainboard inside of your Wii is bad and would need to be replaced.

Wii is showing in Black & White with sound.

I would check your video connection. And make sure all cables are secured. It is possible the video cable may be bad. Try it on another TV, if it works, it may be the TV

Wii black screen

The following fix should help users who do have problems with some virtual console games for the Nintendo Wii that display only a black screen after starting them while the sound remains normal. This does not work in all occasions but should work if you get the Wii menu when you press Home and works only for games that received an update for the interlaced mode.
Try out the following to see if this fixes the issue. Start the game normally until you see the black screen. Connect the Nunchuck to the Wiimote and press Home to see the menu options. Now press A + 2 + Z together which should result in a short “ping-like” sound.
This should have activated the interlaced mode. Leave the menu and you should see the normal game screen and not the black screen anymore. To change the mode again press A + 1 + Z using the same method as above
