If you are trying to hook it to a pc monitor you will have to get a converter box for the specific type of input. for example VGA,DVI,HDMI, the red, green, blue, is video out. The red and white is audio. You will also need speakers for audio. Most monitor do not have speakers. The type of cable you have for your wii is a component cable. There are also different dvi standards they are
If the monitor is hdmi you will have to make sure it has speakers if not you wont have any audio. So a converter box will be needed.
sounds like a cable problem, can you find another VGA cable to try, look at the cable ends carefully for bent pins.(they are easy to bend by accident) wiggle the blue VGA connector while its on, try both ends, I think when you push the button your pushing on the cable momentarily which causes the monitor to function properly, likely the connector on the back of the monitor.
if this helps, please use the thumbs up for feedback.
That "red white green and blue" block is a color pattern tester. that means the monitor is on, but is not receiving a signal, so its running tests. If your monitor has Digital input and VGA input, you may just need to switch inputs. Look for 1 or VGA if youre using the blue hook up. look for 2 or digital or dvi if youre using the larger white hook up. Some monitors also have 'auto detect'. If you are in "auto detect' bbut the color box is still there, then your monitor is not receiving video signal from the computer. It could indicate a bad cable or no signal being sent by the machine. If you try another monitor, you can see if the machine is working. I would try a monitor setting for VGA-1 first, since thats most common.
This sounds like a problem with the cable. Monitors have Red, Green, and Blue signals. I have seen it where the cable has a short, or the plug has a bent or loose pin, and this causes the monitor to turn green.
It is also possible, but doubtful, that the video card is trying to run it as a Black and White monitor. B&W signal is sent over the green channel.
Round peg into the round hole. Red peg on the red slot. etc. If the wire from the nintendo doesn't fit the slot on the tv then you're in the wrong slot. if the wire from the nintendo fits the slot on the tv (and is the same color if you are using red/white/yellow rca cables) then you're good. here's a hint on connection types (you will not mix):
1. RCA (red/white/yellow round connectors)
Red=right audio sound
White=left audio sound
connect to the slots that look like they want some.
2. Coaxial (stiff cable with a pinner poking out of the end -- same cable that connects you to cable tv) just hook it up by itself; it carries audio and video.
3. Component (red/green/blue)(red/white) two 'bundles'
red=red component of video
green=green component of video
blue=blue component of video
4. VGA + (red/white)
VGA=video (computer monitor cable)
5. HDMI (flat hdmi cable. you spent $30 on this 3 foot ****)
HDMI=audio and video
6. hugs and kisses
kisses=audio (both sides)
usually laptops have vga conector for external display, you may need a cable, vga cable.
vga cable varies depends on the connection that you have on the tv, if your tv supports vga connectors thats great, some tv doesnt have that option, thats where adapters go in to adapt what ever ports or connections you have on your tv.
some of the cable adapters that you might need.
vga to hdmi.
vga to rca.
vga to dvi.
