Wii Black and White

Paper Yoshi the SSM

I'm Yoshi the Space Station Manager from the wiki.
Unplug it and plug it back in then. That really does it.
I hit a power switch that makes the same effect as unplugging it. Didn't work.

Did you try your cables in any other TVs? Did you arrange cables in the same port if you get the same problem? Trying to rule out a hardware issue.
I did not try putting the Wii onto another TV. But I tested the downstairs VCR just now and it was in color, meaning that I could theoretically move my Wii downstairs and get the color. But putting it downstairs, that would require some work. Not only that, but I would have the issue of bad (meaning that sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't) internet connections downstairs on other devices (Wii doesn't have internet). And it's not like the Wii is totally unplayable. Sure, you can't tell the difference between a Green Shell and a Red Shell by the looks. But not totally unplayable. Just black and white.

No, It does not have the same effect. This is killing all power to freking everything. Unplug it and plug it back in.

I'm pretty sure he means that he hit a power switch on a surge protector, which cuts all power to everything plugged into it. It has the same effect as unplugging it, unlike the switch on the TV itself.

honestly if we're reaching that point i think we're reaching the point where it's better for SSM to call in the professionals
Possibly, if no one has any other ideas and if I wanted a color Wii upstairs. Which I am ok with. I was just seeing if anyone here had any ideas. But thanks for at least trying to help out.

Well, I decided to put the Wii downstairs, and it is in color now. Meaning I can indeed confirm that it is the TV upstairs that caused the black and white. And now that it is downstairs, it is staying downstairs. But thanks for trying to help.
