  • Is this your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved it to another TV or VCR? If so, please refer to your manual to review the step-by-step connection guide. Our experience shows that the majority of these issues can be solved by double-checking your connection and finding the correct Input Select for your TV or VCR.

  • If you have verified the connection is correct, and are still receiving a blank white or blank dark screen when powering on your Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call Nintendo Support for repair options. 1-800-895-1672
    If you do not have a manual for reference, here is the set up info online: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/setupAV.jsp

    Good luck! Hope this helps! :)

    Hook up to the Wii


    Alright so first of all, you should have gotten a cord with a big, grey power brick attached to it. Plug the end in that goes in a outlet, and the other end should hook up to one of the outlets on your Wii console. Then, there should be a cord with three branches. They should be colored red, orange/yellow, and white. On the back/front or on the cable box for your TV there should be plug-ins that are colored either red, white, green, blue, or orange/yellow. The specifications should be written under the outlets (visual, audio, etc...). Plug the white and red part of the cord in to the "audio" outlet (on your tv). The other cord (yellow/orange) should plug in to the outlet that is labeled "video" or "visual" or "screen" or something along the lines of that. The next step is pretty simple. Your Wii (should have) came with a sensor bar. It is thin, long, and black and has a very long, very thin cord attached to it. Plug one side of the cord into your Wii console, and the actual sensor bar goes on top of your TV. There are small, sticky rectangles that help with the sensor bar sticking to your TV. After you've done all that, your Wii is ready to go! Just push the power button and your ready to start playing!

    I got a wii and tried to hook it up to my toshiba tv and when i turned on my wii it was black and white and im positive i have it set up correct or if its just the cords itself the colors are blue green...


    Make sure the plugs EXACTLY match the jacks on the TV. If you plug just the green cord into the TVs yellow jack, you will get black and white. If your tv has a combo jack (uses the green of a component input, make sure that the tv is on the right input (COMPONENT and not VIDEO).

    let me know.

    I just got a new 46" vizo & dont know what ports to plug my wii into? i know the cords are red white & yellow but not the ones on the tv. totally confused.


    Many large HDTV's will have alternately colored slots to enable 5 connector HD cables. You can plug the Red White and Yellow cords into non-matching ports (green, black, etc) until you have color picture and stereo sound. This will not damage your TV or Wii. You can also buy cables for your Wii that will match the connectors on the back of your television, as well as give your Wii higher resolution capabilities. Which you can purchase at any electronics store.

    Picture is in black and white, no color


    You probably don't have something hooked up right or connected all the way. If you are using component video cables, make sure that all of the different plugs are plugged into the matching socket on your TV. Also, make sure you have your TV on the right channel (3 or 4) if that's how you have it setup.
    Otherwise, you will want to look at the input settings on your TV and make sure you are receiving the correct input, and if you have your Wii plugged into a VCR instead of directly to your TV, try hooking it up directly to see if it works.
    If that doesn't work, try using a different TV - especially if it's a TV you know works in color with a Wii. If it is still in black and white, you might need to take it back to the store and exchange it for a new one.

    Plug in the wii system and everything comes in black and white


    Try plugging it into another scart socket, this sometimes happens when a tv does not support 60hz. the result is a screen that has no colour. You could try just plugging it onto the seperate av inputs. Most tv's these days have one scart that will work ok and in colour.
