Wii Pal and NTSC formats

Ok so this is my issue...

My wii is from UK, i moved over to that states in october and i cant play it. My first problem was the power, but i found a power adapter for the wii in gamestop so that was that sorted. Then i was faced with the issue of the screen rolling up and down, so i managed to change the wii settings > screen type> from 50hz to 60hz and that made the image stop rolling and was clear. Now the main issue.....its in black and white. I bought a wii scart lead and had it shipped over to the states and to my surprise....the tvs dont have scart, so i bought a PAL TO NTSC converter...it gave me colour but....the colour was terrible, blue instead fo white and was just so unplayable.

A new tv isnt an option, i dont want to sell my wii because of the shortage at the moment plus i have like 10 games. I heard new tv's support the Pal function but im just like completely skint haha

I really dont know what to do....any help would be greatly appriciated.
