Not knowing the Wii, but being familiar with the symptom, I would guess there is a setting change in the menu of the Wii that will let you choose component or composite output. It sounds exactly like a composite signal is being fed, over the component cables, to a component input. Check the menu settings and consult the manual for hooking the Wii up to a component television.

I got a Emerson 50" on Black Friday! Wii on component input has no red in the picture.


Try another component video cable. It sounds like the red signal isn't getting to the TV.

I can't figure out how to hook a nintendo wii and dvd player up at the same time..I can't figure out because there are only 1 set of red white and yellow inputs


A lot of newer TVs only have a single composite input. The reason is it is a very low resolution.The Wii can be upgraded to component cables (Red, Blue,Green, White, Red) if you have one of those connections open. It will give you a better picture when using the Wii. Another option is an A/B composite switch for the two components. Both of these can be found fairly cheap on the internet. I would recommend the cable upgrade.

Trying to hook up a dvd and wii with direct tv and can"t get sound out of wii! HELP Can you show me where to plug cords in?


Your TV has two sets of AV inputs. One on the side and one at the back. The Wii has a 3RCA cable ( Yellow / Red & White ) . Connect these jacks to the corresponding color sockets on the side input of your TV. Select that input on the TV and your Wii sound and picture should come on.
For the DVD player you have to get a 5 RCA component cable. This cable will have 5 colored jacks, connect the White & Red to the Audio in of the TV and then connect the Red/Blue/Green jacks to the component video input of the TV.Do the same at the DVD's end also. Setect that source on the TV and you should hear the DVD sound and picture.bobhifi_31.jpg

We need to connect a wii and a dvd player up to our 32 in Emerson? Unsure of which jacks to use?


First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv


Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.


Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.


To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.


When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"


When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."

I have a toshiba 19w330db tv and already have a virgin media box and toshiba SD220EB dvd player connected. I am trying to connect a nintendo wii using the AV cable provided and am using the audio L R...


Do I understant this correctly? You are using a composite video cable (A/V y,r,w) and connecting it with the component video input (and then telling the TV to use the YPbPr source). You need a component video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end - red, green and blue) and an audio cable (2 RCA plugs - red and white) for the Wii. It wasn't included with the Wii but it does have the component video ports. Otherwise you would need a SCART to composite connector to work with the input. Alternatively, you could get an HDMI cable and connect that between the Wii and the TV (depnding on the age of the Wii).

If I've read this correctly, you have the media box and dvd player sharing the SCART input (EXT1).

I hope this helps.

Connection of wii to 37LF2500 tv


The cables you are describing are composite (Red, yellow, white) and most likely you are plugging into a component input (Red, Green, Blue) try looking for another input set, possibly on the front or side of the TV. Make sure to correlate the colors, this should also provide sound for you.

Connecting a wii system to a sanyo DP26648 tv


It has to do with the type of input - Video2 and 3 are Component video inputs, requiring a 3- wire component video cable (Red,blue,green for video, red/white below for audio). Video 1 is for analog equipment (Yellow for the video, red and white for the audio). Unless your Wii comes with a component video out cable and jacks (same red blue green), you'll have to use video 1 for the Wii, and use Video 2 for the dvd. You'll need a component video (3-wire) cable for your dvd, which should have the jacks for it. You can use the present cable you're using for the dvd, but you'll have to change the connections on the back of the dvd to component video out, and you'll still need another 2-wire cable to connect the audio out on the dvd to the audio in on Video 2 on the tv.

Here's the manual for your tv - look on page 8 for these connections. the Wii will be an analog connnection, the dvd will be a digital connection.

How to get a high definition Picture??


Hi, first of all you need a high definition source. I'm not sure if your cable box is HD but lets take it as an example. The component leads which you are using isn't 'true' HD video quality, what you need is a hdmi cable from your source to your TV.

Your cable box maybe HD with a HDMI output, if it is then you need the lead to come out of the cable box into your tv's HDMI input using a HDMI lead. Then you switch your TV's source to the HDMI input and it then should be producing a HD quality picture, but to truly get the full HD experience you may want to subscripe to a HD channel or purchase a blueray player becasue most cable TV channels are upscaled to HD and the definition is not as good as on a blue ray disc or a true HD channel.

So in conclusion the cable and input you are using is not designed for HD input. I believe your TV is HD, check for HDMI inputs or DVI inputs.

Hope this explains your problem

Componet 1 and WII


First of all, make sure that you have the colors of the component cable matched correctly. You can switch the Pr and Pb cable and still get a picture although in the wrong color.

Secondly, go to the TV menu... the menu should still be in color. If it is in B/W then you might have a hardware issue. Try adjusting the custom color setting so that you get a blue picture or red picture. There is an option for adjusting the color called "blue mute" it should give you a perfectly blue picture. If you still don't get any color than it is a hardware issue. It could be the Main Board or the Control Board.

It was the Main Board in my case.
