Are you connecting you Wii to a progressive scan TV input (2 for audio (red)(white), 3 for video (yellow)(blue)(red)?

It's possible you have the red audio and red video inputs switched.

If you have the regular AV-Cable (2 for audio (red)(white), 1 for video (yellow)), and your TV has 5 inputs (progressive), look for the 3 inputs (2 for audio (red)(white), 1 for video (yellow). If it doesn't, connect it to a VCR and run the Wii through the VCR input.

Connect a Wii to VCR


Hello
Take the Wii's audio/video cable and the power cord and hook them up in the back of the Wii.
Take the Wii's audio/video cable and plug it into the 'audio-in and video-in sockets on your VCR.Make sure you match the cable colors with the input colors.i.e white goes with white,yellow with yellow and red with red.
Take the RCA cable which looks like the picture below,

and plug one end of this audio/video cable into the 'audio out' and 'video out' ports on the VCR.Make sure the cable and ports colors match.
Now take the other end of the RCA cable and plug into the 'audio in' and 'video in' ports on your TV.Again make sure you match the color connections.

Hope it helps.

I disconnected the wii at the back of the tv and installed a piggy back plug so I could watch my vcr or play wii. Now I have no color when I use the wii although the tv is fine. I removed the piggyback...


Your wii automatically set itself to HD but your tv doesn't support it. You need to change your wii to standard definition under video settings.

I just got a new 46" vizo & dont know what ports to plug my wii into? i know the cords are red white & yellow but not the ones on the tv. totally confused.


Many large HDTV's will have alternately colored slots to enable 5 connector HD cables. You can plug the Red White and Yellow cords into non-matching ports (green, black, etc) until you have color picture and stereo sound. This will not damage your TV or Wii. You can also buy cables for your Wii that will match the connectors on the back of your television, as well as give your Wii higher resolution capabilities. Which you can purchase at any electronics store.

My tv does not show my wii in color


It sounds like a cable connection problem. Try pulling the video cable out of your Wii and blowing where it plugs in (on the Wii). If you can, wiggle the wires while they're plugged in and the Wii is on to see if any color comes up.
If all else fails, replace the cable.

We bougt a router but i can not conect to my wii


The Wii conneects to your router via wireless communication.
First make sure thw Wii is not too far form the router, ideally in the same room while you are setting it up.
On the Wii screen go to the bottom round button 'Wii' for Wii Options.
Then select Wii Settings. Then click on the arrow to go to Wii System Settings 2.
Select 'Internet', then 'Connection Settings'.
Select ' Connection 1' then 'Wireless connection', ' Search for Access point'.
After the search the Wii will display all wireless networks in range. Select your router from the list and enter the required secure I.D. key for your router (if secured).

The Wii turns on and will take a disk but nothing shows up on the tv screen.


Make sure that the cord from the console is secure in the Wii and the three colors are plugged into the T.V. in the same color plugs. There is a Yellow for picture, white and red for stereo sound. You probably need to access the TV menu and change the "input" to whatever your Wii is plugged into. For example "A/V 1" or aux.

TV went to black and white when hooking up the wii


You probably don't have something hooked up right or connected all the way. If you are using component video cables, make sure that all of the different plugs are plugged into the matching socket on your TV. Also, make sure you have your TV on the right channel (3 or 4) if that's how you have it setup.
Otherwise, you will want to look at the input settings on your TV and make sure you are receiving the correct input, and if you have your Wii plugged into a VCR instead of directly to your TV, try hooking it up directly to see if it works.
If that doesn't work, try using a different TV - especially if it's a TV you know works in color with a Wii. If it is still in black and white, you might need to take it back to the store and exchange it for a new one.

My wii doesn't have full range of color.


Just because it's new, doesn't mean that it's not broken.

Double check the cables. Make sure that they are plugged in to the proper ports.

Take the Wii to a friends house and plug it into his TV. Verify that the problem is with Wii and not the TV.
