I am trying to set the Wii TV resolution to 480p. I am using a component cable, and a HD TV. Qll I get is sound and Black and White Video. I tried the TV input with a different device and it works fine. Thoughts? Running Ver 3 on the Wii. Just updated. Problem was there before I updated.

Re: Black and White Video - Wii Component cable
Sounds like one of the cables is in the wrong jack. Quite often people will mistakenly put the red video cable in the red AUDIO input thats in close proximity. Also sometimes the green and blue look alike in the shadowy recesses behind tv's.....

From the Wii Channels menu, click the "Wii" button on the lower left of the screen. From there choose: Wii Settings > Screen > TV Resolution. In this menu, click on the "EDTV or HDTV (480p)" option and then click "confirm".
If you've changed your Wii's output setting to 480p but are still using the regular red/white/yellow cable, that could be the problem. 480p output is only possible using the component (red/white/red/blue/green) cable.
Did you use the Component cables for the new tv? If you did, you need to go into the System Menu of the Wii, and change the output to Component 480p, and that should give you a color picture with a higher resolution. Hope this helps!
Usually this is either a cable or a mode issue. First make sure that you have the correct cable connections. (Composite video cable to a component video jack is one possible cause of the problem.) Component video cables are not included with the set but will give better results. However, composite video in from the wii's composite video out should give good results.
If you are using HDMI or component video cables, then go into the Wii video menus to select the correct mode for your tv. Check your TV manual and the Wii setup guide for details on the mode (resolution, etc) you should be using.
If the problem persists, try new video cables and make sure that they are fully seated on both sides. Try switching inputs if you have several available.
hi, u can enjoy full hd 1080p video through only ur tv inputs as 2 component video and 2 HDMI. the tv is seted to receive videos up to the resolution 1080p automatically (need not have any setting). just check the output of ur cable box or BD player, is it outputs full hd. if u are using the tvs internal tuner u will only get 480p.
The wii does not support HDTV resolutions, it only supports EDTV which is a resolution of 480p. If you want to get a clearer resolution than a simple scart interface you will need to purchase a wii component cable (you can get them off amazon/ebay) that has 6 jacks you can plug into the component slots on the back of the television.
Look at the inputs panel to your TV. If it has an extra composite input (red, yellow, white), you will be able to use the Wii right out of the box.
If it has component inputs (red, blue, green), it will work at a higher resolution (480p vs. 480i), but you will need to purchase a component video cable for Wii. A regular component video cable will not work.
In order to use the 480p (HDTV/EDTV) resolution, you MUST be using the Wii Component Video Cable. Any other cable will not display the 480p resolution, you have use the 480i (Standard) instead. You can order the Wii Component Video Cable through Nintendo's Web site. Using that cable, you can select the 480p resolution. Hope this helps.
