Question about Nintendo Wii Console
I am unable to get a picture, but the sound works, when I try to connect a Wii to my 65 in rear projection Mitsubishi TV. I have tried all possible input slots with no success.
You probably have a fluid leak on the signal board. This is very common in Mits projections and can sometimes be cleaned up and fixed with no $. The fluid is toxic so use gloves.. anyways.. look inside with a bright flashlight on the signal board. You may find a drop of clear or green fluid there. I use rubbing alcohol to clean it up and works sometimes if you get lucky.. Like i said its toxic so wash up afterwards. Also good to put in some sort of drip shield.
As far as troubleshooting if not a fluid leak, the SD and HD resolutions will go through different processing and will help troubleshoot. In my experience, no video is maybe 90% terminal board or doubler (2hdw) module and 10% signal board, so there likely still hope for your tv. I can help troubleshoot further down to the exact board if you wish to procede.

He most you can squeeze out of the Wii is 480p (PAL/NTSC), 480i
(NTSC) or 576i (PAL/SECAM), standard 4:3 and 16:9 anamorphic
widescreen. This means that you cannot expect 1080p out of it.
The console supports progressive-scan output in 480p enabled Game Cube games, so there won't be any improvements beyond this.
As far as the graphics go, the Wii is said to be slightly more capable than the original Xbox, but bear in mind that it is defined by it's control setup more that it's graphics; the control scheme is perfect for pick-up-and-play, which can make the console great in parties. It is also home for amazingly polished first party games, such as Super Mario Galaxy and in the near future Smash Bros.
If you have an interest in playing games with your whole family (from the young to the elderly), add a little more laughs to your parties, or to indulge in the occasional gourmet game, you certainly can't go wrong with a Wii.

Have you selected the Input on the actual TV? (ie. Input 1, Input 2 etc.) How about another device... such as a dvd or different game console. Same results? Bad Decoder board. Seek a professional to repair.

The Wii console is not able to connect to your wired router or modem.
1. If your connection worked previously, check to see if there is a Wii System Update that you have not aquired. To get the latest Wii System Update:
From the Wii's main menu, select the Wii icon along the bottom left of the screen.
Select "Wii Settings".
Click the left arrow to get to Wii System Settings 3
Choose "Wii System Update"
Choose "Yes" to connect to the internet and perform a Wii system update.
2. Make sure that you are using the Wii LAN Adapter made by Nintendo (click here for a picture and connection steps). LAN adapters not made by Nintendo likely will not work with the Wii console.
3. Check to make sure you are not running the Wii LAN Adapter from a USB hub (a device that connects multiple USB products through a single device), as this will likely not work. Connect the USB Connector directly to the modem or router.
4. Ensure that the Wii LAN Adapter setup is correct, and that the Wii LAN Adapter was connected with the console turned off. For step by step connection instructions, please click here.
5. Check to see if the ethernet cable you are using is not working properly, by connecting another ethernet cable from your router/modem to the Wii LAN Adapter. If the connection works using a different cable, then the problem was with the first cable.
6. If possible, try another Wii LAN Adapter. If you are unable to try another Wii LAN Adapter, or are still receiving this error code, please call 1-800-255-3700 for assistance.
