Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

I have video but no sound from the TV

I have a Quasar TV built in April 2002. I have a Dish DVR connected to Input 2 through an S-Video cable and the red and white audio RCA connections - the yellow video RCA connection is not connected.

Input 1 has my Sony DVD connected to the TV through heavy duty Red, Green and Blue cables.

So, I didn't have any way to connect my Yellow, Red and White RCA cable connectors from the Wii to the TV.

I bought a "splitter box" from Radio Shack with S-Video, Red, White and Yellow RCA outputs and four inputs with the same four inputs.

I connected the S-Video output from the box to the Input #2 using a new cable and the red, white and yellow outputs to Input #2 using a new red, white, yellow cable combo from Radio Shack.

I connected the RCA and S-video cables from my DVR to one of the inputs and the RCA cables from the Wii to one of the other inputs.

I get sound and picture when I push the switch for the DVR on the splitter box, but only get picture when I push the switch for the Wii.

What am I doing incorrectly?

I tried connecting the RCA jacks from the Wii to another input slot and still only get the picture but no sound from the TV. I get sounds from the Wii remotes when playing certain games, but not the music and crowd noise when playing Tennis, etc. (My son has a Wii, so I know what to expect while playing games on the Wii.)

    I put a disc in my Wii, and got a static shock. Next thing I know, my sound is completely gone. The video works fine, but no sound.

    I have not tried connecting the Wii directly to the TV because of the nest of wires behind the TV and the other electronic gear.

    I'll try connecting it directly and I'll let you know. It may be the Wii itself.



    Thanks

    Yes, it is still under warranty and if it continues to not work, I'll return it.



    Thanks!

  • john345 Feb 07, 2009

    I'll call them and send it back!



    Thanks!

There is no sound on the ps2 but i do get perfect picture on the alba tv


Check both sides of the audio/video cable connection. Make sure the red/white cables are plugged in to the proper red/white components on the TV (You may have more than one, and may have plugged the audio in the wrong input). If your TV allows input from separate audio sources, make sure it's set to accept audio from the PS2. You can also make sure the video/audio cable is plugged in fully in the back of the PS2.

Can i connect my wii console to my tv thru my dish network dvr


I hope that you have found the proper solution for this. The Wii console only has an "out" port, no "in" ports. This means that you can only connect the Wii to the tv, and nothing to the Wii, so you are not able to connect this between your receiver and tv.

No colour


Hi, Definitely a TV issue for me. Changed Wii to another input on TV and resolved situation. Need now to check how to get my TV to recognize colour on AV2 & 3 because I prefer to keep DVD input as AV1!

I had to use the (RCA) video inputs and not the component inputs. These are the ones made for video games. If you want to use the component input (Component cables are Red,White Red, Green, Blue). If you don't have any, you should be able to purchase them at your local electronics store like Radio Shack or Best Buy. Hope this helps, read below:

TV (This is your cable connection or TV; coax)
Component 1 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
Component 2 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
HDMI 1 (HDMI Cable)
HDMI 2 (HDMI Cable)
Video 1 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)
Video 2 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)

Sample of Component Cables:

Got new dvr box (not HD connection). had to use inputs that xbox was connected to on tv for my dvr. how do I connect the xbox 360 now so that we can use it without switching out the connections?


There are a couple ways to do this. The cheaper way is to buy some RCA Y adapters. You'll need one for each input (3, probably). Plug the male end into your TV, then plug the (yellow, red or white) cable from the XBox and DVR into the other ends of the cable. The downside of this is that you'll need to turn off the box you're not using in order to see the screen OK.

The slightly more expensive way is to purchase a switch box from Best Buy or Radio Shack or any where on the internet. The switch box will work like the Y adapters, but you can have both boxes on. If these are the only two devices that you need to use, then you only need a 2 way switch. Buy the switch and three RCA cables. Plug the RCA cables into the back of the switch in the output holes, and plug the other end into the TV. Plug the DVR and XBox cables into the input sections of the switch. Then you press one button for DVR on the switch and the other button for the XBox.

We get sound but not picture...not connected to internet...using HDMI cord and it works with other devices


1 Adjust the video input on the TV to match the input connector that is being used to connect to the PS3 system. 2 Check that the cable is securely inserted. Disconnect the cable from the PS3 system or TV and reconnect it. 3 No picture could be as a result of that the video output settings on the system do not match those of cable or TV. Turn off the system. Then with only the system and the TV connected touch the system's power button for more than 5 secs to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolutions.

Can hook up my wii to this tv


The AV Multi Out plug that is included with the Wii will allow you to connect the console to most televisions or video cassette recorders (VCR). First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have colored holes label "Input". Though most TVs have them, almost all VCRs do as well.
avinputsdiagram.gif
  • Audio/Video (AV) inputs are located on the front or back of the TV or VCR.
  • They are smooth silver posts with the inside showing a color, usually red, white and yellow.
  • Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN.
  • The image on the left features stereo audio inputs. Some televisions have only one audio input. Click here for help setting up a mono audio connection.
  • Do NOT connect your system to anything marked OUT.
Where do you have these inputs?
Additional Options:



Connecting to a Television
  1. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console. setuptvav.gif


  2. Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the TV. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

    Yellow = Video Input
    White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
    Red = Audio Input Right

  3. Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, you must find the Input Select for your TV to view the game (it is likely not going to be seen on Channel 3 or 4). Typically this is found by pressing the TV/Video button on the Television's front panel or remote control. If you have more than one input channel, keep pressing TV/Video until you see the display from the Wii.
    If you do not have a TV/Video button, then the input could be labeled something different. Some other common input selects to look for on the TV or remote are: Input, Input Select, EXT, AUX, or a channel such as 00 or 99.
    Still can't find it? We have compiled a list of known input selects for many popular brands. Click here to see our list.

Connecting to a VCR, DVD-R, Cable Box, etc.
    In order to connect a video game system through a device such as a VCR, DVR, cable or satelite box, it must have Video and Audio "inputs." While most VCRs and VCR/DVD combos have these inputs, other devices typically have "Outputs" which will not work for playing your Wii console. Please verify the device you are attempting to use has these holes.
    While many cable/satelite boxes and DVRs may have "inputs," accessing them can be difficult. Please consult the instruction manual for the device you are connecting to, for more information.
  1. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console. setupvcrav.gif


  2. Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the VCR. Make sure you are plugging the connectors into the holes labeled"Input" or "In". Holes labeled"Output" or "Out" will not work. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

    Yellow = Video Input
    White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
    Red = Audio Input Right
    Interested in playing your games in Dolby Pro Logic II (simulated surround sound)? Click here setup information.

  3. Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, put your TV on the channel you use to watch movies (usually channel 3 or 4). Put in a video tape and play the movie. When you see the movie playing, press stop (do not power off the VCR!) and proceed to the next step.

  4. You will now need to find the Input Select for your VCR. This is usually a button on the original remote control that is labeled Input Select, AUX, Input, EXT, Line In, or a high or low channel. For more information on locating your input select, click here.

There is no color or sound with my Wii. What do I need to do to get color and sound?


Is your tv set to show color? Is it a monochrome TV? Are all of the cables pushed in all the way? Make sure that you have the cable on the Wii pushed in all the way, then make sure that you have all the cables connected properly, all of them are connected to the "Input" slots as follows: Video(yellow) to Video(yellow), Red(right audio) to Red(right audio), White(left audio) to White(left audio). If it still doesn't work, try connecting it to another input on your TV, as the current input may be faulty.
