Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

I can't figure out the input select

I just got our wii and was doing fine setting it up until it gets to input select. I have video in and video out (red, white, yellow) on the back of my tv. My tv is also hooked up to a satellite dish that has video (not sure if it's in or out). I've tried hooking up to both ways, but am not getting anything except television. I have pushed the tv/video button on our remote that runs both the tv and dish. I have tried this with the dish on and off. I don't see where my tv channels has an AUX channel and I have tried flipping through all channels on the tv. I am very non-tech and my boys are getting antsy to play.

Try leaving the Wii on and switching the TV off then on. I have an old TV and this is the only way I can activate the AUX

However sometimes even this will not work and you have to plug the Wii into a DVD player or Video player then plug that into the Aux to get it to work

Ps3 plays in black and white with av composite cable


Some newer TVs do not have the traditional "yellow" video input, known as an "AV" connection. Even without that input, you should be able to use the standard three-color Wii AV Cable that came with the system.

What to Do:

  1. Look for "component" inputs on your TV. These connections have a row of five differently-colored inputs (green, blue, and red for video, white and red for audio). If you have more than one set of component inputs, it's the first set that generally works with standard AV cables. Look for a set that has a green input with yellow around it, or the word "video" just above or below it.
  2. Plug the yellow end of the Wii A/V cable into this green "Y" input. Plug the white end into the audio "L" and the red into the audio "R." Leave the blue and second red holes open.
  3. composite_inputs_window.png
  4. Turn on your Wii console and set your television to the input select being used.
  5. If you are seeing the image from the Wii in black and white, try the following to get the image in color:
    • Cycle through your television's input channels (usually with the "Input Select" or "Source" button on your TV's remote control) to find the input select that has the image in color.
    • If you're only finding the image in black and white, you may need to switch the setting of the input select from a component signal to a standard AV signal. This can be done by:
      • An on screen menu option. This is often accessed by using the "Menu" button on the remote.
      • A button on the remote that switches between the standard and component signals. These can be labeled such things as "AV" or "Video."

No visual for Nintendo Wii, replaced cables, audio fine.


Did you hit the input button on your TV remove to select the input where the Wii is connected? If you TV allows for Component cables try getting a set of those. It's a possibility the TV connection has gone bad. Try connecting it on another tv. or some tv's have Audio connections in the front/Side/back.

I have just purchased a used Wii system and every thing works fine except that it is in black and white help.


Hi Anne,

It could be due to the wii's current video settings, the previous owner would have had a TV that ran on different viewing options. The black and white picture is caused by having the Wii settings output at PAL 60Hz and the TV input at PAL 50Hz or vice versa (or NTSC). Try going to the wii settings menu and try a couple of different video settings until the colour comes :). If this does not work can you please post what connection you are using for ex. AV or composite.

Regards,

Omeil

Hello :




1:Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console.
2:

Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the TV. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

Yellow = Video Input
White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
Red = Audio Input Right

3:Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, you must find the Input Select for your TV to view the game (it is likely not going to be seen on Channel 3 or 4). Typically this is found by pressing the TV/Video button on the Television's front panel or remote control. If you have more than one input channel, keep pressing TV/Video until you see the display from the Wii.
If you do not have a TV/Video button, then the input could be labeled something different. Some other common input selects to look for on the TV or remote are: Input, Input Select, EXT, AUX, or a channel such as 00 or 99.

I hope this will help .

Just bought my wii. have it all setup, howeve i cant get it on the tv. cant find select on my remote for the tv. can you help me. thanks


Usually there is a button to change the input device. The one on my remote is titled "input". Press that button to cycle through the available input device channels until you find which one your wii is on. (of course having the wii "on" when doing this will help)

Hooking up Wii with monster cable kit to Onkyo SR875 and Mits 73" HD TV. I cannot get sound through receiver. What am I doing wrong? I can hear the sound through the WiiMote, but no sound through my...


If the Monster cable kit is in fact compatible with the Wii, continue with the following instructions. Otherwise use the Wii connectors.

This is only one connection method for your equipment but the easiest and requires the use of only one additional cable.

Connect the audio and video cables from the Wii directly to your television. Then connect an audio cable from the "variable audio out" or "audio out" from the television to the audio input of your choice on the receiver. Then select that input on the receiver. Then select the input on your TV that you plugged the Wii into. Enjoy.

Trying to set up Wii console with Hitachi 42PD580DTA, but there is no AV channel so what do you switch to when trying to operate the Wii?? where do I put the cables? sooooo lost??


You should have various input connections on the back of the tv. Use the red, white (audio) and yellow (video) connections. The remote should have a button that lets you select which input to use. After connecting the wii, turn it on and try all the input selections until you see the wii screen

Can hook up my wii to this tv


The AV Multi Out plug that is included with the Wii will allow you to connect the console to most televisions or video cassette recorders (VCR). First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have colored holes label "Input". Though most TVs have them, almost all VCRs do as well.

  • Audio/Video (AV) inputs are located on the front or back of the TV or VCR.
  • They are smooth silver posts with the inside showing a color, usually red, white and yellow.
  • Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN.
  • The image on the left features stereo audio inputs. Some televisions have only one audio input. Click here for help setting up a mono audio connection.
  • Do NOT connect your system to anything marked OUT.
Where do you have these inputs?
Additional Options:



Connecting to a Television
  1. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console. setuptvav.gif


  2. Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the TV. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

    Yellow = Video Input
    White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
    Red = Audio Input Right

Connecting to a VCR, DVD-R, Cable Box, etc.
    In order to connect a video game system through a device such as a VCR, DVR, cable or satelite box, it must have Video and Audio "inputs." While most VCRs and VCR/DVD combos have these inputs, other devices typically have "Outputs" which will not work for playing your Wii console. Please verify the device you are attempting to use has these holes.
    While many cable/satelite boxes and DVRs may have "inputs," accessing them can be difficult. Please consult the instruction manual for the device you are connecting to, for more information.
  1. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console. setupvcrav.gif


  2. Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the VCR. Make sure you are plugging the connectors into the holes labeled"Input" or "In". Holes labeled"Output" or "Out" will not work. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

    Yellow = Video Input
    White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
    Red = Audio Input Right
    Interested in playing your games in Dolby Pro Logic II (simulated surround sound)? Click here setup information.

  3. Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, put your TV on the channel you use to watch movies (usually channel 3 or 4). Put in a video tape and play the movie. When you see the movie playing, press stop (do not power off the VCR!) and proceed to the next step.

  4. You will now need to find the Input Select for your VCR. This is usually a button on the original remote control that is labeled Input Select, AUX, Input, EXT, Line In, or a high or low channel. For more information on locating your input select, click here.

Wii


If you go to wii options on the bottom left of the wii menu, hit wii settings and then keep moving to the right until you see the option "internet," click on it and select connection settings and search for an acces point. If you can't find one that is unsecure, go back and buy a Nintendo wi-fi usb connecter, (I got mine @ walmart), and then install the software into your computer and follow your instruction manual. then connect with the Nintendo wi-fi usb connectewr on the connections screen, then you should be good to go!
