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.....

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.
You are using composite cables(red,white,yellow) mine did the same thing. The aquos is all digital, wont read analog, which is what composite cables are. They now make a component cable for the wii. I paid $28 at b.b.
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.
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.
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.
I had the same Black Screen problem and I finally have a fix for it!
When using component video cables and a HDTV: Go into the Wii's system settings, under Screen, change TV Resolution to HDTV (480p) instead of Standard TV (480i) and change to Widescreen (16:9) under Widescreen Settings.
