Tip

Reset your Wii Video Settings to the Default


One annoying thing about the Nintendo Wii is that there is no way to reset the video settings once you have changed them in the Nintendo Wii System Menu.

It will not detect which cables you are trying to use and just tries to use the last settings that you set it to.

So, if you have changed your Nintendo Wii from using the regular cables that came with the system to using component cables, then switch back to a TV using regular RCA cables (these are the yellow, red and white cables) then you need to reset the settings on your Nintendo Wii to the default video settings.

You can reset your Nintendo Wii video settings to use Composite (or RCA - Yellow, Red and White) cables by doing the following:

1. Make sure the Nintendo Wii is powered off and a red light is showing.

2. With the power off, unplug the video cables from the back of the Nintendo Wii, leave them plugged into your TV (these should be the RCA/Composite cables)

3. Press the Power button on the front of Nintendo Wii. Make sure the cables are still unplugged.

4. Keep the Nintendo Wii powered on and plug your cables back into it with it still running.

5. If all went well, the picture should appear normally now.

6. Once the picture has reappeared, you should go into the Nintendo Wii Menu (the Wii button in the bottom left hand corner) and change the display back to 480i to make the changes permanent.

I hope this tip helps!

Cannnot connect to the internet error 50300 0n tv screen?


Hi.

It appears that your Wii console's Internet connection may be affected by wireless interference.
Try the following:

1) The Wii console's internet connection settings are not correct. This could include your network name (SSID), WEP or WPA keys, or any manual settings you may have entered.

2) It's possible something has changed since you last connected online with your Wii console. Try setting up a new connection file, using your router's settings.


3) While "Search for an Access Point" is the easiest and recommended connection type, your network may require you to use the "Manual Setup" option. Click on the link below for help

Recently secured wireless network with a new name and password. Can't get on Netflix now.


You need to go into your network settings for your Wii and change your Wifi network settings to reflect the new name and password. Your WIi is looking for a Wireless router named whatever you used to call it and not finding it.

Nintendo ds + wii+ wireless router help


On the router do you have a password? If you have a password on the Router along with the router name then in the setting setup for the Wii you will need to go into the network setup and configure the settings just as you have them on the router. For Example: If the router name is netgear and the password is abc123456789 then in the setting for the Wii you need to put in netgear and the password abc123456789
