My Wii isn't in color.


YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR RCA CONNECTIONS, THERE IS NO REASON YOU SHOULDNT HAVE COLOR. MAKE SURE THEY ARE COLOR CODED PROPERLY ON THE BACK OF THE TV.

How to connect a tv to a wii


After getting everything out of the box, decide on where you want to put your Wii. It should be near your TV and near an electrical outlet. You can either lay the Wii flat or sit it on its side. If you’re laying it flat, move on to step 2, Connect the Cables. If you want to place the Wii in a vertical position you should use the Wii Console stand, which is the gray base unit. Attach the console plate to the bottom of the stand, put it on your shelf and then place the Wii on it so the beveled edge of the console aligns with the beveled edge of the stand.
There are three cables that connect to the Wii: the AC Adapter (a.k.a. power cord); the A/V connector (which has three colored plugs on one end); and the Sensor Bar. The plug of each is distinctly shaped, so each cable plug will only fit in one port in the back of the Wii. (The two small, same-sized ports are for USB devices – ignore them for now). Plug the AC Adapter into the largest of the three ports. Plug the Sensor Bar plug into the small red port. Plug the A/V Cable into the remaining port.
To connect your Wii to your television, find the sockets on your TV that, like the A/V Cable, are colored yellow, white and red. The sockets are generally on the back of the TV, although you might also find them on the side or front. You may have more than one set of ports, in which case you can use any of them. Insert each plug into a port of the same color.
The sensor bar can be placed either on top of your TV or right below the screen, and should be centered with the middle of the screen. There are two sticky foam pads on the bottom of the sensor; remove the plastic film covering them and gently press the sensor into place.
Next, simply plug the AC adapter into a wall socket or a power strip. Push the power button on the console. A green light on the power button will appear. The remote comes in a rubber jacket, designed to protect it, which you will have to partially peal off in order to open the battery door. Put in the batteries, close the battery cover and pull the jacket back on. Now push the A button on the remote to make sure it is working (a blue light will appear at the bottom of the remote).
The Wii remote that comes with your Wii is already synced up, meaning your console will communicate properly with the remote. If you have purchased any additional remotes, you’ll have to sync them up yourself. To do this, remove the battery cover from the remote and press and release the red SYNC button inside. Then open the little door in the front of the Wii where you will find another red SYNC button, which you should also press and release. If a blue light goes on at the bottom of the remote then it is synced up. When using the remote, slip the Wii remote wrist strap around your hand first. Sometimes when people are waving their remote around it slips out of their hand and breaks something.
Turn on your TV. Set your TV input for the input channel your Wii is plugged into. This can usually be done through a button on your television remote generally called “tv/video” or “input select.” Read any onscreen text. This will be either a warning, in which case you can press the A button, or a request for information, such as whether the sensor is above or below your TV and what the date is. Point the remote straight at the screen. You will see a cursor similar to the mouse cursor on a computer. The “A” button does the equivalent of a mouse click.
Once you have answered all the questions you are ready to play games. Push a game disc into the disc slot; the illustrated side of the CD should face away from the power button.
The main Wii screen shows a bunch of TV screen-shaped boxes, and clicking on the top left one will take you to the game screen. Click the START button and begin playing.

Bought a Wii and using the standard cables it played great on a new 50' Panasonic Plasma as well as on our 2 year old 32' VIZIO LCD. Just upgraded to a 46' Sony LCD (W series) and the Wii looks terrible...


The Wii can display on a HDTV, but keep in mind the output is only 480p. It is not true high definition, and it will only display this using a component video cable. There shouldn't be a difference with LCD and plasma.

You will also need to go to the display settings to force the Wii to display in 480p.

Try a different input (safe to assume your Sony has multiple?) and see if it is that specific input. Also, try a different device like a DVD player or VCR and see if you get the same result.

Good luck.

The screen goes blank, wii emits buzzing noise


Sounds like you may have an overheating issue. Make sure your system is well ventilated (have plenty of space on all sides). If you still have problems, try buying a cooling fan add-on for your system.

Also, when using component video cables and a WidescreenTV: Go into the Wii's system settings, under Screen, change TV Resolution to HDTV (480p) instead of Standard TV (480i) and change to Widescreen (16:9) under Widescreen Settings.

Good luck!

PS: In order to shut off the system when having problems, try holding the front power button for about 5 to 10 seconds.
