Have been using the Wii gfor quite some time. Our little monster unplugged the leads that go into the front of the T.V. Now we can hear the sound of the Wii starting up but there is no picture at all. Any suggestions??

Many thanks

    I have the same problem, haven't played it in awhile. Now when I want to play I just get sound and no video, tried 2 tv's and 5 Video Inputs. All my other RCA stuff works, so I know it is not TV's or inputs.

I had the same trouble, everything worked, but no video. I used a cable that was for a box 360, a playstation 2, or 3, and a Wii. It had the three cables on it, the yellow, red and white. It also had one for S video. I used the S video and got the video back. It was in black and white. I updated the system, but still cant get video on anything but S video.

Well, I dont know if this will work for all, but I went and got a HD cable for the Wii, and it worked like a charm...I knew my SD cable wasn't bad, because I just used it a day or so before, but the HD cable maby uses a different part of the video card inside the Wii??

I unplugged my wii to move it to another tv and it after i plugged it back in the tv was black the volume worked and the controllers rumbled al the power was on and working,

Power light is green or orange - TV screen is blank
    If the power light is green or orange and your screen remains blank, follow these steps.
    1. Completely power down your system by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the AC Adapter from the Wii for a moment, then plug it back in.
    2. Make sure your Wii console has the most current Wii system menu. Download the latest update (how to), and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved.
    If you continue to experience this issue, there is a problem with the Wii console and it will need to be repaired.

Im trying to pass the wierd looking creature on wii in the tomb of the dragon emperor the mummy, where he is in a circle, and the beast keeps shooting out green skulls, and running really do i...

Hold down the Z button to keep your sights locked on the monster. Whenever he fires undead souls (the green skeletons) or charges at you, use the Joystick and A-button to dodge to the side and evade the attack (don't let go of Z, though!).

Dodging his leaping attack is a bit trickier, and it takes good reflexes and quick reaction time. When he leaps into the air, dodge to the side using the above method, and then release Z. At this point, you'll immediately need to be ready to jump over the shockwave that will spread over the ground when he lands. The instant that the shockwave dissipates and the monster starts running back to his perch, you should resume Z-locking on him.

The only time when the monster is vulnerable is when he's standing in his perch and roaring. THIS is when you need to let loose and start pumping lead into him with your guns.

The monster is not very inclined to stand around and roar though, so you have to get a bit close to him to make him do it. there are several colored rings of pavement radiating from the monster's perch. You'll need to get close to the edge of the second or third ring from the center (or actually step INTO said rings) in order to get him to start roaring. Be careful though-- if you get within a certain distance of him, he'll pummel the ground with his paws and send out damaging shockwaves. Interestingly, he is also vulnerable when he pummels the ground, but you shouldn't try to shoot him at this point unless you can dodge the shockwaves in time. Between bouts of roaring, he will still attack you, so be ready to dodge at all times using the methods described above.

Hope this helps! =D

Boot up Wii and only get a blank screen, Have sound

Make sure that you are connecting the RCA (Red/Yellow/White) cables into the standard input RCA slots on your TV/VCR. If you are plugging them into the standard output slot or an HDTV slot that is likely the problem.

Screen freezes - nothing works afterwards

The Wii has an internal battery keeping its settings. do this:

1) Unplug it from the wall
2) look underneath it (if it were in the vertical position), you will see a small screw near a front foot.
3) unscrew this, there should be a battery in there, remove
4) Leave 5 mins
5) put in battery, plug in console, start up

*please note i have no idea i this will mess with anything saved onto the internal memory (wii channels, mii's or saved games)
** I hold no responsibility if this voids your warranty
