I suspect you have it hooked up wrong check, Color to color, this is what can make it green, if not that then ensure your format is ok either PAL or NTSC, check.

How do i connect my nintendo to my samsung led tv


I am assuming that you are talking about a Nintendo Wii.  When you buy a Wii it comes with standard RCA composite cables that are three colors, Red, White and Yellow.  Yellow is the cable that carries the video signal and the red/white carry the stereo audio signal.  You would need to connect these cables into the corresponding color inputs on your tv.  Plug the yellow ended cable into the yellow jack on your TV and do the same for the red and white cables.  After this is done, you will need to switch your tv's input to the input that corresponds to the one you plugged those cables into.   Some newer flat panel TVs do not come with RCA composite inputs.  If this is your problem, you will need to get some component cables for your Wii.  These cables look identical to RCA (composite) cables but come in colors red, green, blue, red and white.  In this case the red, green and blue cables carry the video signal and the red and white carry the audio.  You can purchase these from just about any store that carries the Wii or online from places such as Amazon.com.

You would hook these up the same way by matching the colors and then changing your tv to the corresponding input.

Hope that helps!

I have hooked my wii up to a new samsung 42"


Make sure that you have switched the Wii to component video in the system setting menus. Once you have done that, you should have a color picture in 480p! Hope this helps!

Wii game hooked up to new Sharp LED tv. TV is color and the wii is in black and white.


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.

I hope this helps.

Clear but only blue/green color


Do you have a component cable hooked up to the TV? (cable with RCA connections Green/Blue/Red/White/Red)

If so you want to check that the red cable is tightly connected to both ends (TV and whatever it is connected to).

Good Luck...

Hooked up cable box, wii box and dvd player to new lg 50 inch 720p plasma tv... all external components work, however, dvds and wii only show in black and white - no color...


Connect the Wii and the DVD player to different ports on the TV to and any other device to the port in which the Wii and the DVD player were connected to check if the issue is with the port.

If other devices also display in black and white after connecting them to the port to which the Wii and the DVD player were originally connected then the ports require servicing.

I have no color


Are you using the default video cable (Red, White, Yellow) for video and sound? Make sure the Red and White are connected to the audio in for video 2 and that the yellow is connected to the video in for video 2. It might also be labeled composite video on your TV. If you are using the Red/Green/Blue plugs labeled component or Y/Pb/Pr then that might your problem with the black and white video.

As for the controller sync problem, you should press the red button next to the SD card slot on the Wii and the red button under the battery door of the new Wii remote in order to sync the two.

Hi, I just purchased a Samsung series 3 330 model#LN40A330 I'am having problems with the AV inputs on back of television. I hooked up a DVD player to Component 1 it works fine Then I hooked up Nintendo...


I figured it out,
The solution to my problem was to update my video cables for my new HDTV.
I found out through trial and error that I can only have one Anolog device hooked up to the TV because with two Anolog devices hooked up the same way it must confuse the TV somehow making one of the inputs showing up in Black and White, So I purchased the color coded AV jacks and everthing works like a charm now.

Purple and Green hum bars?


You could have a drain on your AC (120) causing the hum bars in your set . Best thing to try is to reduce what you have plugged into your 120v outlet . One of your unit could have a capacitor going bad in its power supply causing the hum bars . Even if it is not turned on. Try one unit at a time . if you find out it one of your units they make what is called a line conditioner which filters out these hum bars . Good luck
