Have a 65 inch HDTV, hooked 3 prong cord for WII to TV , screen on TV goes black. Called Nintendo for help they say WII should not be played on TV larger than 40 inches. Know many people have it playing on 42 and 50 inch, just dont leave it on to burn image. How am I hooking it up wrong, or is TV going black a security feature for TV.

Follow the color code green for green, red for red, blue for blue, ignore the yellow wire, also be aware that there is an audio cable that is red also that wire goes into the Right channel audio and the white wire goes to the Left channel audio
You probably don't have something hooked up right or connected all the
way. If you are using component video cables, make sure that all of the
different plugs are plugged into the matching socket on your TV. Also,
make sure you have your TV on the right channel (3 or 4) if that's how
you have it setup.
Otherwise, you will want to look at the input settings on your TV and
make sure you are receiving the correct input, and if you have your Wii
plugged into a VCR instead of directly to your TV, try hooking it up
directly to see if it works.
If that doesn't work, try using a different TV - especially if it's a
TV you know works in color with a Wii. If it is still in black and
white, you might need to take it back to the store and exchange it for
a new one.
*First ; before starting unplug unit or shut off breaker.
you should be able to match up color for color on your dryer, the fourth wire, green (ground) screws to the chassis, or cabinet. if your wires aren't coded as you say, it is red, white and black, left to right. see picture I've supplied.
hope that helps
I contacted Nintendo and they have informed me that they had never heard of this problem before. Upon our discussion it appears that it may be a problem with the video input of the television and not a problem with the WII itself. I tried hooking up the WII to another television and did not encounter the problem at all.
It would appear that the tv I was using may be developing an issue with it's video input. I changed to another tv about a month ago and this problem just started happening about 3 days ago. The tv I was using was not a new tv and perhaps it is now having a problem with the signal from the WII.
If it continues with this problem using the rear A/V inputs, I will try hooking the WII up to the front A/V inputs to see if this corrects the problem as well.
i put the wii on, powers up but i get a total black screen. wiimote does not connect either. what can i do to resolve this? i have already disconnected all wires and connections, left it off for hours and tried putting it on again. no change. Black screen still remains. HELPPPP
Wii's aren't designed to be hooked to a computer monitor, but basically it's gonna boil down to your video card and software. Odds are, you're gonna have a lag no matter what you do when since it has to be processed by the cpu before it can be displayed.
