When I am watching something it is in black and white. But when the video mute turns on it displays in blue and all of the menus display in full color. I have tried to run the cable straight into the tv and I also tried a digital camera in the 3rd input, all with no success.

Vertical bands of faint black are generally caused by filtering capacitors and can be found in the power supply or the 5 volt supply or even the Video processing circuit...it is not an easy task to identify the source of Video hum bars.....we also call them Jailbars.
Another problem seen is faint black lines caused by the TV set being in 4:3 mode all the time....right at the edge of where the picture ends and the black pillars begin, we see a faint black line that never goes away and is normally seen with a full screen....
That is actually image retention, but it's caused by the crystals that create the picture becoming polarized or ionized over a very long period of time....and it's not easy to DE-Polarize them !
But there are some theories out on how to do that.... Certain people suggest running the TV overnight with an ALL-WHITE picture and some suggest an ALL BLACK PICTURE...and some suggest alternating between both !!
Now, a black picture is easy to make, you just deactivate the Video Mute (blue screen) and set it to an unused Video INPUT overnight....
About the only way to make a white screen is to use the USB port for pictures and take a very bright outdoor shot of a piece of white paper that hopefully is out of focus too....That would create an all-white picture that you can plug into your TV set overnight....
Now if you decide to try this, deactivate any displays on your TV set...all you do is press the display button until the Video and/or USB input numbers disappear....
Next day , set it back to normal TV and see if it's gone or if it's REDUCED....try it again if needed, or try the exact opposite if you see NO RESULTS....
First thing is to determine what type of video connection you are using to watch TV. If you use componet video cables to watch tv check teh green cable to make sure its connected also check the red and blue because if the green come off the picture will appear B&W
I had this problem too. It was just because I had the wrong cord that
goes from the Wii to the t.v. I had a green, blue, and red for the
video. And a red and white for the audio, while my T.V. only took
yellow for the video. I just went out and bought the right cord that
instead of having green, blue, 2 reds, and a white, just had a yellow,
red, and white.
Hope this helps.
pink wire if its to go to ground then any metal is ground or negative not live in other words they say the handbrake so you cant use it whilst driving so any metal should do for this ok.
Are you wiring it to amp or not? Also the mute only wires into say phone cradle or something that would mute the stereo say if you had phone in craddle this would mute the sound so you could here the call. so not needed unless you have phone craddle.
If the two lives are wired in and the ground black when you earth the pink then it should switch on let me know if this happens.
Auto ant is for the arial on car if this goes up and down on motor if not then its not needed
Ill check on dimmer/illumination ok but bare with me for couple of hours just popping out but will get back to you then ok
