Re: How do I switch to Av manually?
You may have to get an exact replacement to get ALL the set's functions to operate. Universal remotes don't let you access all the functions of some TV's
If you can use the buttons on the front of the set to bring up the menu, you may be able to scroll through it and find where you can select the type of input you want. You would select AV.

Read the manual that came with the remote. Most of the time you can find your device when you put the remote in a "search" mode and then you have to press a button several times, till the TV switches off. Then press anything again and your remote should be set up. Something like that should be on the remote for setup. When the TV responds, check all buttons, to see if any of the keys switches the AV.
Some newer TVs do not have the traditional "yellow" video input, known as an "AV" connection. Even without that input, you should be able to use the standard three-color Wii AV Cable that came with the system.
What to Do:
Look for "component" inputs on your TV. These connections have a row of five differently-colored inputs (green, blue, and red for video, white and red for audio). If you have more than one set of component inputs, it's the first set that generally works with standard AV cables. Look for a set that has a green input with yellow around it, or the word "video" just above or below it.
Plug the yellow end of the Wii A/V cable into this green "Y" input. Plug the white end into the audio "L" and the red into the audio "R." Leave the blue and second red holes open.
Turn on your Wii console and set your television to the input select being used.
If you are seeing the image from the Wii in black and white, try the following to get the image in color:
Cycle through your television's input channels (usually with the "Input Select" or "Source" button on your TV's remote control) to find the input select that has the image in color.
If you're only finding the image in black and white, you may need to switch the setting of the input select from a component signal to a standard AV signal. This can be done by:
An on screen menu option. This is often accessed by using the "Menu" button on the remote.
A button on the remote that switches between the standard and component signals. These can be labeled such things as "AV" or "Video."
Try to see if any of these four methods will work. Sanyo TVs 1. Press VIDEO MODE or TV/VIDEO button in front panel or on remote 2. Press MENU , choose FEATURE SETUP, then choose either VIDEO MODE or TV/AV, select VIDEO or AV 3. Press TV/AV or INPUT SELECT on remote 4. Press SETUP, choose TV/AV, switch to AV
Without remote control you can't change its mode to AV. Buy one "Atlas OCAP 5-device remote control; by Universal Electronics. Emerson is listed to very short numbers of universal remotes, and this is one amoung them. The codes will be with the attached manual, and you can choose if from it. OK.
Mine too, we need to find the AV channel. All our friends who have a Wii have had no problems, just plug it in and switch your remote from TV to AV and it's there. My Hitachi remote does not have a TV/AV button, and the other options, S.Video, Composite Video, Component etc is taken up with other things eg Foxtel, DVD player and DTT tv channels .... HELP!!!!
The mikomi ctv14440 I have has a scart socket on the back. Plug in an scart to av phono adaptor which has an input/output switch. Set the switch to input and press AV on the remote control. Now you can use the mikomi ctv14440 as an AV monitor with suitable leads. Press TV on the remote control to return to normal TV.
how are you connecting the wii to the tv...through the rca jacks? If so, you can not get to the input channels by the channel button. On the remote there will be a button called either AV, Input, AV Video, Video, A/V, Input or something similar. Hit this button until your tv goes to the appropriate av channel.
good day , what button can you see infront of your TV screen?
Not familiar with this model but if you'll manage to locate a button marked as "TV/AV" or "AV" press this button until it the display switch to A/V mode (audio/video). Or if this is a really old model, from Tuner mode or channel model. set the channel station to 1 then press the " - channel " button and see if it will change from tuner mode to A/V mode
have you tried buying a universal remote? you can get a decent one for
£10 these days from any electrical store, such as curry's or maplins.
it gives you a 3 digit code for the tv to link up with the remote and
then you can switch over to av. some hitachi tv's also link up to av
automatically if you connect your game station via scart socket (in the
back of the tv) if you turn the tv off and link your wii up to the back
and make sure the power is turned on before the tv is switched on,
there's a chance the tv will auto detect the av channel. not all do but
it's worth a try. hope this helps!
