First, you are posting a question about the Wii under the PS2 heading. Problem number one! Number 2! If your TV is new enough, it might not have the connections for A/V jacks like the yellow red and white. Here is how they connect. Yellow, video, Red, right sound, white, left sound(mono)
1. Ensure that the Sensor Bar cord is plugged to the back of the console, and is placed properly at the center of your TV screen. For detailed directions on setting up the Sensor Bar, please click here.
2. Check to be sure the Wii Remote is synced to the console, by using the Power button on the Wii Remote to turn the console on. (The power button is the small white button with the red symbol in the top-left corner, just above the Control Pad). If this doesn't work, try to sync the Wii Remote. Once synced, try to turn the power on the console on and check for proper response.
3. Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly in front of the TV and that there are no bright light sources affecting the Wii Remote's operation (review Game Play Guidelines for more information), and that the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup). Avoid sources of infrared light in the gameplay area such as electric, propane or kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, and stoves or other sources of heat.
If you are still experiencing problems after trying the steps above, there could be a problem with your Sensor Bar.
Try changing the TV inputs to VIDEO or AUX, using the remote or a button on your TV. If there is not a way to connect the Wii to the TV using the 3-cable system (Yellow, Red and White), then you might have to use a VCR or DVD player to plug the 3 cables into and then transmit the audio and video from the Wii using the regular cable line of VCR or DVD Player on TV channels 3 or 4. If your Wii has a regular TV Cable jack on the back, connect that to the jack on the back of you TV and select channel 3 or 4.
I just wanted to add that I recently bought a WII and I have the exact same problem. I have a Samsung HD TV and I bought the additional HD cable that has the multiple jacks (i.e. green, blue etc.) I will post if I find a specific answer to the probem.
Here are instructions from Nintendo on how to fix this issue. It's most likely related to the sensor bar. Good Luck!
If your screen appears
frozen at the Language select screen, we have found that to be related
to the Sensor Bar. Please try the following:
Ensure that the
Sensor Bar cord is plugged snugly to the back of the console, and is
placed properly at the center of your TV screen. For detailed
directions on setting up the Sensor Bar, please click here.
to be sure the Wii Remote is synced to the console, by using the Power
button on the Wii Remote to turn the console on. (The power button is
the small white button with the red symbol in the top-left corner, just
above the Control Pad). If this doesn't work, try to sync the Wii Remote. Once synced, try to turn the power on the console on and check for proper response.
Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly in front of the TV
and that there are no bright light sources affecting the Wii Remote's
operation (review Game Play Guidelines for more information), and that
the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup). Avoid sources
of infrared light in the gameplay area such as electric, propane or
kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, and stoves or other sources of heat.
you are still experiencing problems after trying the steps above, there
could be a problem with your Sensor Bar. Please read the following:
Sensor Bar has five infrared lights on each side of the bar that the
Wii Remote uses to determine its position. If these lights aren't
working, then the Wii Remote cursor will not display on the screen, and
you won't be able to navigate the setup screens.
To see these lights, you will need a digital camera or cell phone camera with an LCD display.
After making sure the Sensor Bar is plugged in and the power to the
console turned on, direct the camera at the Sensor Bar so that it is
displayed in the LCD
of the camera. If the five infrared lights can be seen on both sides of
the Sensor Bar, the Sensor Bar is working. While the position/angle of
the camera may need to be adjusted slightly, the lights are fairly easy
to see in the LCD display.
Hey Jack, How many remotes are you able to connect at a time? If you have multiple remotes try turning the ones you know that work off, and putting them in another room(so you know they will not try to connect). Then try connecting with the bad one. If that doesn't work you might have to sync the remote: hold down the red sync button on the wii, located next to the sd card slot, while holding down the red button on the remote, located under the battery cover on the back. Now try connecting. If it still doesn't work, the LED lights in the sensor bar might have burned out, this happens a lot when you keep your sensor bar directly on your tv without the stand(the tv gets hot and burns out the lights), a lot of people do this because the stand looks bad. Go buy a new sensor bar, they sell them at wal-mart for $20, plus they're wireless, so you don't have to worry about that thin little wire popping. Test the new wii bar, if it's still not working, then you're remote is just worthy of getting returned.
hope this helps!
sometimes just sometimes tvs are funny, some tv's call it a "input select" others call it a "mode" or simply "input" and some dont have any they just want you to goto channel 2 on the tv and go back one more channel.
ushally all these modes are listed on the remote.
is it the origional remote? or is it a universal remote.
try those things above look over the remote again see if anything resembles any of that and if not
list the make and model of your tv and if your using a universal remote we will be able to figure something out for you.
that the cable bar sensor is plugged into the back of the Wii console
and that the sensor bar is properly aligned with the centre of your TV
that the Wii remote is synchronized with the console using the POWER
button on the remote control to turn on the Wii console. (The POWER
button is the white button with the red symbol which is located in the
upper left corner on the Wii remote.) If it does not work, try to
synchronize the remote control, then turn the console and controls that
respond correctly to commands. (3) Verify that the distance between the Wii remote and the TV display to
be between 1 and 3 meters, that there are sources of intense light that
can interfere with the proper functioning of the remote (read
Guidelines game for Wii for more information ) And that the sensor bar
is placed correctly (see Setting up the sensor bar). Avoid the presence
of sources of infrared light as electric stoves, gas propane or
kerosene, candles, fireplaces, stoves or other heat sources close to
If the steps described above do not solve the problem, the sensor bar could have a problem. Read the following instructions:
On each side of the sensor bar are five infrared lights that located
the position of the Wii remote. If these lights do not work, the cursor
on the remote will not appear on the screen and you can not step
through screens of settings. To see these lights, you must look on the
LCD screen of a digital camera or a mobile phone. Verify that the
sensor bar is connected and that the Wii console is turned on, and then
framing the bar sensor so that it appears on LCD camera or cellphone.
If you see five infrared lights on each side, the sensor bar works.
Maybe you'll need to slightly adjust the position / tilt the camera or
the telephone, but is rather easy to see these lights on the LCD screen ;)
