Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Wii turning on and can hear disc, but nothing coming on the TV

Did you ever get a resolution to your Wii issue? Turning on but not appearing on the TV? We have a virtually brand new Wii with identical issue. Other games work on the set (e.g., Game Cube) so it's not the TV.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

No sorry...ours is still out of commission. I basically did a LOT of reasearch only to find out there are a million other wii people out there with the same problem and No one has any kind of a answer that is even remotely helpful. All the common things ive tried and all the uncommon and unlikly things ive tried nothing has worked..Basically ive worked it out to Im just going to have to send it in to Nintendo..but that is going to cost me like 80$ or somthing like that..so for now it is just sitting on my desk..LOL..sorry i couldn't be of any help. But it seems that no one knows why this happens. Some people even reported having this issue after only having the system for a week. I think its just typical of the wii....(apparently anyways)

:o( sorry.

Where to start.....alright. I currently have a softmodded Wii console, and I recently bought third party component cables for it. The cables work fine under Standard TV resolution (480i), but when I change...


From the Wii Channels menu, click the "Wii" button on the lower left of the screen. From there choose: Wii Settings > Screen > TV Resolution. In this menu, click on the "EDTV or HDTV (480p)" option and then click "confirm".

Wii turns on but nothing comes on screen


Check your video inputs on your TV to make sure they are working then try a known working Wii audio/video cable. If still no video try changing your TV resolution if possible to match the Wii video input resolution. If still no video then you may have a dead Wii motherboard.

I turn the ps3 on but the video doesn't appear. i checked the tv and cords and nothing was wrong with them.


Did you check that the AV cords are plugged in right? Red to Red, White to White, Yellow to Yellow? Are they properly connected in the back of the PS3 not loose connections? It could also be that the PS3 display settings are at a really high resolution for your T.V. Try reset the PS3 resolution settings back to factory settings by turning the PS3 off and then hold down the power button for 3-5 seconds and you will hear some beeps it will load your PS3 resolution at 480i. Should give you your screen back.

Nothing shows on screen when inserting game , i hear the disc is turning but nothing shows on screen


Make sure you have the cables hooked up properly, regardless of whether your using an HDMI cable or regular A/V cables.

Best thing to do in a case like this is to do a factory reset on your PS3. Be sure that the A/V cables are being used originally and are hooked up properly.

Here is how to do the factory reset on a PS3:

1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

Try that, if you still don't get video and you know the cables and the TV are set to the right output then its an issue with the main board not having any output.

The wii disc keeps on rejecting when insert


Does it do it with any disc you insert or just one particular disk? Have you tried flipping the disc over to other side and then inserting it?

Guitar Hero 3 can't hear player 2


The discs are flawed. Activision has worked with Nintendo to improve the audio experience and has re-mastered the game. They are offering Wii consumers who have Dolby capabilities or audio issues free replacement discs.

Customers based in North America that want to register for a free replacement disc can call (866) 780-8286 from 8:00am-8:00pm EST, Monday-Friday, or register online at the following website http://www.activisiongameexchange.com/.


Good Luck!
