Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Wii in Black & White

Did all the connections. to TV. Yellow to yellow, etc, sound and picture are almost perfect. Almost, because the picture is in black and white. Called Nintendo and they are replacing the"new " unit with a refurbished unit. At this point, I'm at wits end on how to get the color display. I see all the blogs showing all the fantastic colors and man am I jealous. If anyone can help before I get the refurbished (used) unit. I would be forever grateful.

    I called Nintendo and spoke to a tech for about 20 minutes before he suggested a replacement. I looked into the Nintendo Community, but I didn't see my problem posted. I'm not saying it wasn't there, I just didn't see it. While searching online, I saw, in another posting, my specific problem. The tech he spoke to also recommended a replacement. Unless it's a "motherboard" issue, I just feel there has to be an answer to this problem. The unit works, it's just in 1950's black & white. In certain games, color has a way of affecting the players success. In black & white, it's hard to decern the various shades of grey.

    I recently bought a Wii as well. Everything is perfect except the color is black and white. I'm nearly 100% certain the TV and the cables are hooked up correctly because I switch in the PS2 and it works fine.

Hi. How can I connect a DVD player yo a thorn tv. I've got the red yellow and white cable but the picture is black and white and has pixels.


Red and White are usually sound inputs
Yellow should go to the yellow INPUT on the TV.
If these are connected properly and A/V is the selected input,
unplugging the red or white should only take away sound from the Left or Right.
The yellow wire carries all picture information to the Video input.
Try unplugging and reconnecting the yellow cable. If it does not improve the picture, try replacing it. (You can try any cable, the TV can't tell what color you are using.) ;-).

First you need a component cable to solve your problem.Since you have not mentioned what device you are connecting to your TV, I''ll assume its a DVD player or a settop box.There is a Red and White audio sockets + Red / Green / Blue component video socket. Just make sure you connect the corresponding two sets of jacks at both end of your TV & DVD player and everything will work. bobhifi_21.jpg

I have a 1994 zennith TV/VCR COMBO I am trying to connect a dvd player to. I have one yellow video cord and one double stranded audio red/white cord. I can not get a picture. Vcr player does still work.


Connect yellow from DVD to TV. Connect white and red cables from DVD to TV. Yellow to yellow, white to white etc. Then select on the TV using the remote, the proper input (where the DVD is connected) Press PLAY on the DVD player.

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

No sound on tv and black & white


The red, blue, and green are the component cable hookups. What you have w/ red, white, and yellow is called composite or on most TV's (AV) See if the TV has a side port for like a camcorder, etc. It will not work by hooking into the red/blue/green as they are different signals.

It is possible that your yellow jack may be separate from the red/white audio left/right jacks.

The picture is green


Make sure that the unit is connected to the tv properly. Be aware that most dvd players have six connections. You can connect the unit to the television using RCA cables (yellow, white, red) or RCA sound with component video (white, red, blue, green, and red). When using the yellow-white-red method, the sound is carried by the white and red cables and the video signal is carried by the yellow cable. If you're using the white-red-blue-green-red method, the white and one of the red cables carries the sound, and the blue-green-red cable carries the video signal. This connection uses one cable for the green component of the picture, one for the blue, and one for the red. Make sure that the cables are connected properly and you don't have the two red ones mixed up. Connect Sound-R to Sound-R, component R to component R, etc. If that doesn't work, you may be able to adjust the picture on the tv. There's still a chance that the machine is defective.

     Hope this will help you.
     Thanks.

Proscan 26LB30Q Vs PS2 = HELP


The red white and yellow cables are composite connections. The red/green/blue connections are component connections.

The playstation's composite connections consist of two audio connections- red & white, and a composite yellow video connection. The TV's white connection is the audio, and the red/green/blue are component video. You need an adapter that will connect the one yellow(composite video) to the three red/green/blue (component video) connections

check your connections on the back of the tv and back of the dvd player. make sure you are using the proper conections on the back of the tv. if you connect the RCA (composite) cables (red yellow white) you should be going from the red yellow white on the tv to the red yellow white on the dvd player. if you have the component(red blue green) connection on the dvd connected to the red yellow white on the tv, you may get a black and white picture. If this does not work, check the manual for the dvd player and see if there is a way to turn "Progressive Scan" features off, some older TV's cannot handle a progressive scan dvd player.
