    So i was using gameboy emulator vba GX, and got bored and started messing with the video settings. Well without realizing what I had done, I changed the region settings to PAL. I live in good 'ol Murrica. The video went black and white and slightly fuzzy. I then thought that i changed it back. However, when i went to my Wii menu, it was black and white as well. I tried using region changer app to no avail. Please help!

    I think the problem is in the TV. Maybe changing the signal changed the TV settings. If that's not the problem, try changing the wii video mode in system settings.

    Not yet. Admittedly, it was late when this happened and i kinda freaked out and left it as is for fear of bricking my wii. Which setting is that under?

    Use NTSC games next time, and don't mess with video settings :)

    Are you using composite or a CRT?
    Try out component on an HDTV. Component reduces the chances of color issues, and allows 480p in many games. HDTVs also are more likely to accept PAL. (in rare cases, you may be lucky enough to find support was just not mentioned in the TV manual)

    Could of just been the connection on the Wii. Mine goes black and white occasionally. Slightest touch on the plug on the back of the wii brings it back. :)
