Question about Nintendo Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

When I connected my Nintendo Wii to my Magnavox TV, everything was in black and white. I wanted some nostalgia, but this was a little to old timey. How can I fix this? The model number is 26MF301B/F7.

SOURCE: Nintendo Wii works fine on standard tv but not on hdtv.

FOUND THE PROBLEM !!!!! The problem appears to be the Freeview somehow interfering with the Wii signal. When the aeriel lead is removed the Wii works fine, and the audio/visual signal is great. When the aeriel lead is in I have the problems. I hope this solution proves to be of use to anyone else having similar problems.

My Wii was connected to a normal-old TV and was in black and white. Okay, so I then tried to see if connecting it as a HDTV version would work (in the settings)....well, then everything turned into...

What happened when you selected HDTV is that you activated the output to the HDMI output. This turned off the regular connection. Press the power and reset button simultaneously when turning on the unit to return it to the factory default settings. Otherwise, you'll have to connect it to a HDTV with the optional cable to connect it (you'll have to purchase that as well) to go in and change the settings back.

Turned it on, only 4 days old, everythings black and white, games play ok but in a grainy black and white

If it's 4 days old and having problems there is a very simple solution -- call Nintendo and have it replaced. There is a 90 day warranty on the Wii... Nintendo will replace a 4 day old Wii:

Wii only works in black and white

either your Wii or your TV dont match, one will be PAL and one will be NTSC or vice versa.
if you have a HD TV buy an HD composite cable off ebay for about £4 and it should sort it.
