It's most likely because the US Wii is NTSC and your European TV is PAL.

Hooked up the wii to a new emerson tv. no cable is attached to the tv. the wii is showing up in black and white only, how can I get color

no your wii is in pal (UK EDITION) while your tv is NTSC( USA EDITION) so not compactible. So try seeing if tv has setting of switchin to pal if not sorry this means you can only by and play uk games if you got the wii in the usa its the opposite for you.

Why is picture black & white? Sound and picture are good otherwise.

Hi, i bought a wii a few days ago and like everybody else mine too was in black and white with a grainy picture. I have a Panasonic lcd flat screen and thought I had connected it corrected, I got somebody out to have a look at it and found out there are some connections on the side of the TV which I hadn't even noticed before, once I put the red white and yellow leads in these and set the TV to AV3 everything is in perfect colour. Hope this works for some of you.

Take care

Just brought a flat screen tv and put the wii on its gone on to black and white whats the problem?

Try the different inputs on your TV to see if its black and white on all of them. If thats the case then try another TV, if its still black and white then its a problem with the Wii. If it works well on another TV then you know the original TV is the problem.

How to set up a UK Wii for use in the US

This is because UK wii's use a PAL signal for video display. If your TV does not support the signal, it's always going to be black and white. You might need to try a different TV.

TV Screen is Black and White when using Wii

Nintendo say that black & White screen is often because you need to replace the standard 3 pin lead with a 5 pin component lead for HDTVs. Have you tried this?

Screen losing color.. turning black and white

Your TV goes black & white, because your Wii could be NTSC or PAL which. If your Wii is PAL and your TV is NTSC then the TV will show a blac and white color. Since NTSC is for North America and PAL for Asia
