No picture when connecting wii to mitsubishi TV

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.

    Yes I have tried another TV and the Wii does work on other TVs.

  • mlanctot1 Dec 29, 2008

    I have tried hooking my Wii to another tv and it does work but I am still having the issue with my Mitsubishi big screen.

    I am still not able to get a picture when I connect mhy Wii game console to my Mitsubishi tv.

  • mlanctot1 Dec 29, 2008

    It has never worked

  • mlanctot1 Jan 03, 2009

    I have fixed my problem without the help of this website and their "expert team." What a waste of my time and money.

  • mlanctot1 Jan 06, 2009

    Like I said before what a waste of time and money

  • mlanctot1 Jan 06, 2009

    These guys do not have a clue

  • mlanctot1 Jan 06, 2009

    The issue was with the TV itself. The signal PCB is the problem. Unfortunately the board is no longer made by Mitsubishi so they offered to build me one. It would cost over $700 to fix so I decided to buy a new TV and give this one to my son who doesn't care if the analog inputs do not work. I guess that I am sorry for some of the things that I posted but over a period of more than 2 days all I recieved was two questions that were so basic in nature I found them and the process useless.

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.

The problem on it is the format of your video,, the audio is accessable but the video is not, i conclude the video file is not supported, the solution is convert the video into MPEG-4 format,, convert it into the video converter, im sure it will work.!!!

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.

    Troubleshooting (especially electrical) without having the components in front of you is nearly impossible. We can give you suggestions on what to look for, or tips that you may not have thought of. However posing a broad question without model specifics can be much more difficult. Imagine a question like "I was driving down the street and my car died. How can I fix it?"

    This could be one of 1000 possibilities. Sometimes additional questions and answers are needed. We do not know what common solutions you have already tried. With the use of the comment button, there can be a positive interaction between the asker and the FixYa team.

    Sorry we could not be of more help. If you are any good with electronics, a replacement (used) may be a way to replace the board without a huge expense. Im sure we could help you with that.

    Let us know.

    Good Luck

Trying to connect to internet on my wii console but it comes up with error code 51420


error code 51420 means The Wii console is not able to connect to your wired router or modem.

Try to do this step hope it will help you plzz rate me tnxx...


  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:
    1. From the Wii's main menu, select the Wii icon along the bottom left of the screen.
    2. Select "Wii Settings".
    3. Click the left arrow to get to Wii System Settings 3
    4. Choose "Wii System Update"
    5. 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.

We have sound but no picture on our Wii


Connect a DVD player using red white and yellow to the TV if you get picture and sound, then reconnect the wii red, white, and yellow to the same input.

If only the wii does not show video you will need new red white, and yellow cables. I would try a friends red, white, and yellow cables first even to their TV where their wii is already working.

If new cables are not working you will need to contact Nintendo as there is an issue with your wii. You can't change the wii video to progressive without a component kit, and since you have yellow you obviously don't have a component cable for the wii.

Nintendo Wii works fine on standard tv but not on hdtv.


FOUND THE PROBLEM !!!!! The problem appears to be the Freeview somehow interfering with the Wii signal. When the aeriel lead is removed the Wii works fine, and the audio/visual signal is great. When the aeriel lead is in I have the problems. I hope this solution proves to be of use to anyone else having similar problems.
