We study the color-color diagrams in BVI, plus a narrowband filter centered at 6200Å, finding evidence that intrinsic color scales valid for main-sequence dwarfs are incompatible with the ONC in the M spectral-type range, while a better agreement is found employing intrinsic colors derived from synthetic photometry, constraining the surface gravity value as predicted by a pre-main-sequence isochrone. We refine these model colors even further, empirically, by comparison with a selected sample of ONC stars with no accretion and no extinction. We consider the stars with known spectral types from the literature, and extend this sample with the addition of 65 newly classified stars from slit spectroscopy and 182 M-type from narrowband photometry; in this way, we isolate a sample of about 1000 stars with known spectral type. We introduce a new method to self-consistently derive the stellar reddening and the optical excess due to accretion from the location of each star in the BVI color-color diagram. This enables us to accurately determine the extinction of the ONC members, together with an estimate of their accretion luminosities. We adopt a lower distance for the Orion Nebula than previously assumed, based on recent parallax measurements. With a careful choice of also the spectral-type-temperature transformation, we produce the new Hertzsprung-Russell diagram of the ONC population, more populated than previous works. Description: We utilize our multi-band optical catalog presented in Paper I (Cat. J/ApJS/183/261) to construct the HR diagram of the ONC. The catalog consists of a nearly simultaneous photometry over a field of view (FOV) of ∼34'x34' which comprises most of the ONC. Photometry of the ONC was obtained in UBVI, Hα and in the 6200Å medium-band filters using the Wide Field Imager (WFI) at the 2.2m MPG/ESO telescope on La Silla. We complement the optical photometry with spectroscopy, extending the spectral catalog of that work with new spectral types from slit spectroscopy. File Summary:
