Typically, 'Input' is an option found on your television's remote control, not on the TV.

If you have your remote, look for a button labeled 'Input' - pressing this allows you to change the input that the television is using at the current time (ie. you can have multiple devices [GameCube, a DVD player, and an XBOX (for example)] connected to your TV through the various inputs on the back (where all the cables go) and select (or jump) between the various devices. This means that you don't have to unplug and plug in each different device everytime you want to use it)

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.

No audio video


NES AV to TV Hookup



Note: This type of connection is not possible with the newer-style NES.

Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the TV.
Place the yellow end of the AV cable into the Video "in" on the back of the TV. Connect the white or red end of the cable to Audio "in" ("left" or "mono"). Use a slight twisting motion when inserting each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
On the other end of the AV cable, plug the yellow end into the "Video" (yellow) input. Plug the white or red end into the "Audio" (red) input, on the back of the NES.
After the system is connected to the TV:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the Controller(s) into the front of the system. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system . Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Press the Power button in on the front of the NES.
Turn on the TV and locate the input select. It is often called: TV/Video, input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The game image should now be displayed on the screen. You are ready to play!
If after following these directions you are not able to view the game (for instance, if the red power light flashes off and on), try our Troubleshooting Tips.

Welcome to Fixya

Looks like you have no input source connected to the TV. You need an aerial or some type of pay TV service like satellite or cable. You could also try a DVD player. In each case, you have to select the proper input with the set's remote.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Trying to hook up my nintendo 64 but there is no video or sound output??


External Speakers



Installation steps:
These steps work for Wii, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo 64, and Super NES hookups.

Gently pull the yellow cable of the Stereo AV cable apart from the two Audio cables (red & white). Plug the yellow cable into the Video Input on the TV or VCR.
Locate an open set of Audio inputs (left & right) on your home stereo. Do NOT use inputs marked "Phono."
Plug the white cable into the Audio Left input on your home stereo. Plug the red cable into the Audio Right input on your home stereo.
Set the input select on the stereo system to match the label on the set of audio inputs. (For example, if you plugged the Audio cables into the AUX port, switch the stereo to AUX or "auxilliary."
Make sure the game is placed properly in the system.
Plug the controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck using the left most port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system. Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Turn the power on.
Turn on the TV or VCR and locate the input select. It's often called Input Select, AUX (auxilary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external. Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
Note: If you are using a VCR, you will need to set the VCR's TV/VCR button to VCR. You can do this by putting a movie in the VCR, pressing play, then pressing stop.

The game image should now be displayed on the screen. You're ready to play.

Input select sttting


Normally, your TV or VCR is probably set to display the television channels you watch, through a standard cable input. In order to play your Nintendo using the A/V cables, we need to tell your TV or VCR to switch from the normal tv channels, and instead display the signal coming in from the A/V cables of your Nintendo system. There is no one particular way to do this, as it varies between brands, but below is some information that may help.
Quick Tip: Grab the original remote control for the TV or VCR you have plugged your Nintendo into, and look for a button that could be labeled:
  • TV/Video
  • Input Select
  • Line or Line In
  • Source
  • AUX (auxiliary)
  • EXT (external)
  • any other button that seems to indicate it would switch between the TV signal and the game system.
If the above tips did not help, it is possible your Input Select is a little more difficult to locate. Here are some other common ways to access an Input Select:
  • A button on the front of your TV or VCR located behind a door or a hidden panel, or located on the original remote control that came with the device. If you are using a universal remote, it may not work when pressing the "input select" button. If it does not work, try to locate the original remote.
  • A high or low end channel. Try channel surfing through every channel, even the ones that do not normally broadcast a TV show. Many times the input select is a high channel such as 90, 91, 92, 93, 99, or even 999. You should also try low channels such as 0, 00,001, 1 or even 2. For some televisions, you may need to manually select these channels by using the keypad on the TV or remote control.
  • Found within an on-screen menu. Search the menu for words such as Input, Setup or Source. Select one of these words, and another menu will usually appear that asks you to select between TV and either AV, AUX or Line. Select AV, AUX or Line to display the Nintendo game.
If you are still unable to find your input select, you may want to consult the operation manual that came with your TV or VCR, or contact the manufacturer directly.

My tv get snow when i try to play a game


Try using another TV. If you don't get the same problem then it's the TV and not the PS3. You might also want to try changing the display settings so that you're using the correct outputs.

I can't figure out the input select


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
