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.

Have a red wii. plays but no color help......plz


Hi.

Check all the leads from the Wii to the TV and make sure they are not loose or broken. Also check the regional settings in the settings menu and make sure its set to your area.
If your TV has component inputs make sure you have a Wii component cable or you could buy a Wii RGB Scart cable if you only have a spare scart input. If you turn on the Wii press menu on your TV and alter the AV settings. For example, change the setting to composite opposed to RGB. Also check your Wii settings and change them to be in parallel with the TV settings.




Regards.

I,ve connected my wii to the led tv using a wiii component cable(5 leads) but have used only 3 of them red green & blue 1,s leaving a red & white 1 left i have good picture but no sound help please


your cable is split into two different connections for your tv... the red green and blue cables are for HD only. They are their own little set. the yellow cable is your video cable for normal tv's. the red and white cables are sound cables, also for normal tv's. I would unplug the red, green, and blue cables, and use the yellow, red (right sound), and white (left sound).

Good luck!

No picture are sound,have tried new leads but nothing


need a bit more info. Do you have TV set to the correct input that you have the Wii plugged into. What type of AV plug are you using is it standard yellow, white and red plugs or are you connecting with component cables that have extra green, blue and red cables as well as the standard ones. You need tv set to component input if using the component cables.

We have sound but no picture on our Wii


Connect a DVD player using red white and yellow to the TV if you get picture and sound, then reconnect the wii red, white, and yellow to the same input.

If only the wii does not show video you will need new red white, and yellow cables. I would try a friends red, white, and yellow cables first even to their TV where their wii is already working.

If new cables are not working you will need to contact Nintendo as there is an issue with your wii. You can't change the wii video to progressive without a component kit, and since you have yellow you obviously don't have a component cable for the wii.

I bought a Nintendo Wii off of a guy and I didn't realize when I did that it came with Hi-Def RCAs. My TV only has a standard RCA hookup. I was told that I could still use the Hi-Def RCAs but what colors...


Those are not High Def RCAs.

The cables you received are called "component" when the picture is broken down to its component colors, red, green, and blue.

When compared to "composite" cables (RCA), the yellow is all the components in one, which is the video cable. The other red and white are audio.

Your component should be RGB, Red & White (audios)

What you need to do is buy a composite cable for the Wii, which shouldn't cost that much--usually under $10 bucks. Save the component cables for when you get a new TV since those are the more expensive of the two!

How do I hook my wii up to my magnavox 32mf338b HDTV?


If your TV does not have a scart socket, the only equivalent HD lead (as the wii doesn't support HDMI) is a wii component cable like the one here: http://www.amazon.com/Official-Wii-Component-Video-Cable-Nintendo/dp/B000JJRV90/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1262346399&sr=8-1 .

Most HDTV's havea component interface on the back as well as this is required. The six jacks are all colour coded so it shouldn't be a problem plugging it in the back but this is the only way to connect it up if you don't have a scart lead available.

Nintendo Wii works fine on standard tv but not on hdtv.


FOUND THE PROBLEM !!!!! The problem appears to be the Freeview somehow interfering with the Wii signal. When the aeriel lead is removed the Wii works fine, and the audio/visual signal is great. When the aeriel lead is in I have the problems. I hope this solution proves to be of use to anyone else having similar problems.

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.

The wires from the wii to hook into my samsung t.v. do not match is there an alternative wire configuration that I might be able to obtain?


The cables that come with the Wii are composite video cables with the standard red, yellow and white cables. You might be trying to plug them into the component video input, which has red, blue, and green.

Check your TV to see if you have any red, yellow, white inputs. Use that input if you are using the cables that same with the console.

Alternatively, you can buy component video cables for the Wii. This will be for the red, blue and green input. This will provide you with higher definition (480p vs. 480i) and a slightly sharper picture.

Good luck.

Yamaha HTR 5760 Video Problem with Wii


You need to connect a composite cable from the receiver. The receiver does not carry a composite signal over component cables.
