Wii TV Scream showing up in Black and White

I just got a new TV and wanted to hook up my Wii. The back of the TV looks a little different from my old one but it all labeled. I hooked up my Wii and everything was going great until I turned it on. When I turned it on it was making all the sounds and I could see the picture, but it was showing up in black and white and not color. I tried plugging it into different slots but nothing worked. I need help please, thanks.

It depends on your TV model. I would start looking in the TV's settings menu for an option. If you still have trouble, you can post your TV make and model and that may help.

This page (click here) suggests that you need to use the "AV IN 1" input with composite cables, so that may be the issue. And no problem.

Check that "AV" is the selected input source, and not 'Component 1."

The manual for your TV which is on this page (click here) states that you should use the "Source" button on your remote to choose from "TV, AV, Component1, Component2, PC, HDMI1, HDMI2." I would check to see if it shows up that way.

Make sure that your audio plugs are in the proper spot,  If they are wrong the Tv thinks that should go into component mode and not AV. It would leave you with a slighty noisy  black and white picture without sound.  To check this,  Only hookup the video and check the picture.
