Hey guys, I recently purchased the Nintendo Wii and the official component cables for it (so it could play in 480p). When I hooked it up to my Sony KV-30HS420 (CRT) I noticed that all of my games (and Wii channel menu) have extremely washed out colors, which seemingly results in a yellow colored screen (almost think The Simpsons). I originally noticed it when playing Zelda and there were no real distinct colors outside of varying shades of yellow and the occasional black). Strangely, I had this problem about a year ago on my Xbox 360 but one day the problem stopped.


In order to try and fix it I obviously checked to make sure that all connections were solid and even switched to a separate component input on my TV but the problem continued to persist. I also double-checked that my settings in the Wii system menu were correct (e.g. output in 480p, 16:9 widescreen, etc.) but nothing seems to work.


I am not sure if this is relevant but I have had my digital cable hooked up to this TV via component cables for over a year and have never once had an issue regarding bad color (or in this case yellowish color). The only time I seem to have had problems has been with a video game console.


Does anyone know what the problem might be and how I might be able to fix it? Thanks a ton for the help guys!

Assuming this is the same issue, this has been discussed previously. Basically, it appears that the Wii switches to using a different color space when using component 480p, which may or may not match the color space your TV is expecting.

I have the same problem, even my menu looks washed out. Any fixes? I can't really adjust the TV becuase I only have one component input so every thing runs through my Onkyo Receiver that outputs one component cable signal?

Ive also noticed increased distortion with audio. I see lines on the screen when I click on a channel, and also on the opening screen to excite truck or anytime there is audio there are red lines across my screen. AAAAAaak!!
