    Are you using component or composite cables?

    Are you hooked directly to the TV, or through another console (ie: VCR)

I would suggest checking the the connection to the television from the wii. Other than that, you may need to get some new cables.

Hope it helps!

Hello
Please try the below mentioned process to troubleshoot the issue.
  1. Set the Wii console to output 480 lines of video.


  2. While on the Wii Channel Menu (main screen of the Wii), connect a Nunchuk to Wii Remote.


  3. Select the Virtual Console game from the Wii menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.


  4. When the game starts, press the Home button on the Wii Remote. (In many games, the music can be heard when the game starts.)


  5. Select "Operations Guide" from the Home menu.


  6. Press the Z + A + 2 Button simultaneously (the Z Button is on the Nunchuk). A sound will be heard if the button combination has been entered correctly.

Tip

Display problems while playing Virtual Console games


If you are experiencing display issues (dim, blank or half-blank screen, ghosted image, etc.) with a Virtual Console game while using the Component Video Cable, please read the following:
Some Virtual Console games default to displaying 240 lines of video. Some HD TV's are unable to display a signal with only 240 lines. Try the steps below to set the Wii to output 480 lines of video, which may solve the problem:
  1. While on the Wii Channel Menu (main screen of the Wii), connect a Nunchuk to Wii Remote.
  2. Select the Virtual Console game from the Wii menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
  3. When the game starts, press the Home button on the Wii Remote. (In many games, the music can be heard when the game starts.)
  4. Select "Operations Manual" from the Home menu.
  5. Press the Z + A + 2 Button simultaneously (the Z Button is on the Nunchuk). A sound will be heard if the button combination has been entered correctly.
  6. Close the Home menu. The game should now display correctly. Note: You will not have to do this the next time you play, as the Wii console will remember these settings.
If the Virtual Console game is still not displaying properly, but all other games work fine, please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

I plugged in my US Wii into a 240V wall socket without a converter, i heard and felt the adapter box pop, not good! i see online they sell universal wii ac adapters that input 110-240V is this the kind I...


Yes, 110-240V lets your Wii get power anywhere in the world. Make sure to check if your Wii still works because the 240V wall socket may have fried your Wii.

My son was using his wii when the power suddenly went out on the TV and the wii. The TV started working again, but the wii did not. I've checked all the connections and unplugged and plugged everything in,...


Did you have a power surge? Unplug the power supply from the wii and the wall for five mins. Then plug it back in and try it out. Have heard of this working for some people.

My Wii is hung with the message 'Error 003, Unauthorised device has been detected.'Won't go away


I hate to tell you, but your Wii has bricked. It is now inoperable. I guess you haven't heard, but the 4.2 update can brick even unmodded Wiis.

However, all is not lost. You can get your Wii fixed absolutely free. Call Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 for assistance on your repair. Source(s): http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems…

I have a samsung led tv and am trying to hook up a wii. The tv does not have component video - only hdmi and usb. How do I hook this up?


I've never heard of a TV not having component cables (the 5 plug cables: red, blue and green video cables, red and white audio cables). I've seen some newer ones without composite (3 cables: yellow video, red and white audio), but never component.

I find is hard to believe it has no component. I looked at some Samsung LED tv's this weekend, and although they lacked composite, they had component. Are you sure you mean component?

The Wii only comes with composite video cables, so you'll need to buy a component video cable for the Wii to hook it up if your TV has no composite inputs.

Component Cables for the Wii

TV's have inputs on the side and rear. If the TV truly has HDMI, USB and nothing else (which I find hard to believe), then you'll need a cheap home theather 5.1 receiver. Ifyou get a cheap one with HDMI out, it should have a few composite inputs on the backside. A cheap sony one can be had for sub $200. If you hook the Wii into the receiver via composite, and the receiver into the TV via HDMI, it will allow you to hook up and play the Wii (and it may upconvert it too, depending on the receiver).

Wii will play gamecube games but not wii games


I heard something on youtube about that. It seems that the disc is hitting on the case so you would have to take it apart and fix it.

Wii controller gloves


Ask Nintendo. I personally have never heard about getting these sleeves for free, I think that you may just have to buy them.
