Hooking WII to TV

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.

Hook up to the Wii


Alright so first of all, you should have gotten a cord with a big, grey power brick attached to it. Plug the end in that goes in a outlet, and the other end should hook up to one of the outlets on your Wii console. Then, there should be a cord with three branches. They should be colored red, orange/yellow, and white. On the back/front or on the cable box for your TV there should be plug-ins that are colored either red, white, green, blue, or orange/yellow. The specifications should be written under the outlets (visual, audio, etc...). Plug the white and red part of the cord in to the "audio" outlet (on your tv). The other cord (yellow/orange) should plug in to the outlet that is labeled "video" or "visual" or "screen" or something along the lines of that. The next step is pretty simple. Your Wii (should have) came with a sensor bar. It is thin, long, and black and has a very long, very thin cord attached to it. Plug one side of the cord into your Wii console, and the actual sensor bar goes on top of your TV. There are small, sticky rectangles that help with the sensor bar sticking to your TV. After you've done all that, your Wii is ready to go! Just push the power button and your ready to start playing!

TV went to black and white when hooking up the wii


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.

Blurry Screen


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.

You plugged it into the t.v right and not the Dvd player? if so then you should be able to click on something like tv/video which should take you to the Wii.

Hooking wii to computer


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.
