Wii wont show on tv screen

ALL of our cords are triple and quadruple checked to make sure they are plugged in correctly. We have had this wii for about 2 years ...I bought it for my husband for christmas when they first came out. We have never had any problems so far but now when i turn it on the little green light comes on and i can hear what sounds like a disk spinning up and the screen kind of flashes but then nothing happens. No sound No video no nuthin. So ..does anyone out there have any idea's as to what i can do?

We have tried changing power cords, and video cords, we have tried changing the internal battery as well.

Someone PPLLLEEAAASSEEE help.

Blank white or blank dark screen

  • Is this your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved it to another TV or VCR? If so, please click here to review our 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 click here for repair options.

    In my opinion (this is a suggestion) you may want to check if your video cables (those red yellow and white cables) to see if they're shorted out. if you don't want to check or simply don't know how then I recommend in investing in a new set of video cables. If you want specifics then it;s either that your cables are shorted out or your cable has been "over-used" and has been worn down. Good luck and i hope this helps. :)

    The Wii turns on and will take a disk but nothing shows up on the tv screen.


    Make sure that the cord from the console is secure in the Wii and the three colors are plugged into the T.V. in the same color plugs. There is a Yellow for picture, white and red for stereo sound. You probably need to access the TV menu and change the "input" to whatever your Wii is plugged into. For example "A/V 1" or aux.

    I plugged our wii into new tv. the screen shows a black and white picture. how do i fix it?


      What to do will depend on how you're connecting your Wii console to your TV.

      • With the yellow, white, and red AV cables that came with your system:

        • Did you have to use the red/green/blue inputs on your TV because it doesn't have the standard (yellow) AV inputs... if this is your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved it to another TV, . Our experience shows that many times this issue can be solved by double-checking your connection and finding the correct Input Select for your TV or VCR.


      • With the blue, green, white, and red component cables (sold separately):

        • Review our step-by-step Wii Component Cable to make sure the cables are properly inserted and that your TV is set to the proper input.

      If you have verified the connection is correct, and are still receiving a blank or black and white screen when powering on your Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700

    When i turn on my wii the Tv is unresponsive. The screen stays black.


    Make sure your component cables are properly connected. That means the 3 cables on one end are attached to their colour-coordinated spots, and the connection on the other end is attached to you Wii. Make sure your TV is on, the Wii is on, and your TV is on the right "input". You can get to different inputs by going into your TVs menu.

    If all this is done and your Wii still isn't showing anything, then switch to a new TV to see if it will work there. If it doesn't, then it's likely your Wii's component cords are damaged. You can find new ones in almost any large store. Just make sure you're getting the correct ones.

    I plug all the right stuff in but its not coming on the screen...i have i fixed to video and everything


    Assuming you plugged in everything correctly, (power, yellow white and red) and have set the TV to the proper channel/input, there are only a few other possibilities:

    1. Video cord may be bad (unlikely)
    2. Xbox 360 may have some sort of hardware problem (would have to ship it in for repairs if it does)
    3. TV won't support it. To check that, all you have to do is try it on a different TV.

    Oh and something else I remembered. On the end of the video cord that goes into the Xbox, there's a little switch on the side of it. Make sure you have it set appropriately

    Good Luck :)

    My wii wont turn on the power does not show a light


    Try a different outlet to make sure the outlet you have it on is good or not.

    If a different outlet didn't make it turn on then at that point, try another ac adapter for the Wii. If a different adapter doesn't work then you know the main board inside of the Wii is bad.

    The wii remote curser does not show up on the screen.


    Check that the batteries are fully charged and make sure that the top end of the control is clean (no finger prints etc...) and that the bar that sits on your tv is centered correctly and plugged in correctly
