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!

Hi Friend,
Just check which TV system you have. I mean PAL/NTSC/SECAM or AUTO set it according to your country.

Good Luck.

I just hooked my wii & all we get is black & white


I had the same problem. Instead of going directly into the TV, I tried plugging the component cable into the auxiliary jack in my digital cable box and that seemed to fix it. Works great now.

Just brought a flat screen tv and put the wii on its gone on to black and white whats the problem?


Try the different inputs on your TV to see if its black and white on all of them. If thats the case then try another TV, if its still black and white then its a problem with the Wii. If it works well on another TV then you know the original TV is the problem.

Hooked up a wii using component cable and display is black and white. Is there some kind of menu setting for the 2nd Comp input? The 1st is connected to the cable box and working correctly.


This is not an answer persay, but you should make sure you using the correct component input. You should have 1 RGB and 1 YPbPr. The Wii would use the RGB input. To test this plug the Wii into the component jacks you have the cable box plugged into.

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.
