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??

We were playing a game and the tv screen went black then we ejected the game and the wii console will not shut off and now it wont play a game or nothind then we tried to unhook it and the light stayed...


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.

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.

The screen goes blank, wii emits buzzing noise.


refrain from playing for a few days.

its what you call a black screen of death. it will keep happening until your wii stops if you dont refrain from playing for a while and obey the health/safety rules (sometimes the wiis pass becuase the health/safety rules hide the bsod) [health/safety rules: take a ten - minute break every hour.] BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR WII IT IS VERY FRAGILE IF IT GETS A BSOD!!!!!!! {fragile=easily damaged INTERNALLY}

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
