Make sure that your source units (DVD, Cable/Satellite, etc) are ALSO plugged into the reciever using Component (you cant have multiple types like S-Video, Composite and Component mixed and matched). Also make sure your TV is on the appropriate input.

I got a wii and tried to hook it up to my toshiba tv and when i turned on my wii it was black and white and im positive i have it set up correct or if its just the cords itself the colors are blue green...

Make sure the plugs EXACTLY match the jacks on the TV. If you plug just the green cord into the TVs yellow jack, you will get black and white. If your tv has a combo jack (uses the green of a component input, make sure that the tv is on the right input (COMPONENT and not VIDEO).

let me know.

I have just brought a rx-v367 av reciever and have connected it to my tv/ speakers. speakers work fine when testing set up. however there is no sound coming out when connected to tv. also it keeps coming...

Hi, Yamaha audio-video receivers are equipped with a variety of connecting jacks for hooking up different types of electronic equipment. Component AV cables are typically used for hooking up the receiver to a cable TV box. Component cables can also be used to connect the Yamaha receiver to an HDTV, although a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) cable offers a simpler connection if the receiver is equipped with HDMI (all HDTV sets are equipped with the distinctive, six-sided HDMI jack). The connections should take less than five minutes.


Things You'll Need:

* 2 sets component AV cables
* HDMI cable

Check the back of the Yamaha receiver to determine if HDMI is available. The six-sided jack contains 19 holes set in three rows. If the receiver is equipped with an HDMI Out port, use an HDMI cable to connect to the TV by inserting the plug straight into the jack with the wider end turned upward.

Insert the red, green and blue plugs on a set of component AV cables into the Video Out jacks on the cable TV box, matching the plug colors to the jacks.

Connect the plugs on the other end to a set of Video In jacks on the back of the Yamaha receiver. Make a note of which jacks are used for the connection. Each set of jacks is labeled on the receiver.

Insert the audio plugs on the component cables into the Audio Out jacks on the cable box, using the white plug for the left channel and the red plug for the right.

Attach the plugs on the other end to the Audio In jacks on the Yamaha receiver.

Use a second set of component AV cables to connect from the AV Out jacks on the Yamaha to the AV In jacks on the HDTV only if an HDMI cable was not used.

I have a samsung led tv and am trying to hook up a wii. The tv does not have component video - only hdmi and usb. How do I hook this up?

I've never heard of a TV not having component cables (the 5 plug cables: red, blue and green video cables, red and white audio cables). I've seen some newer ones without composite (3 cables: yellow video, red and white audio), but never component.

I find is hard to believe it has no component. I looked at some Samsung LED tv's this weekend, and although they lacked composite, they had component. Are you sure you mean component?

The Wii only comes with composite video cables, so you'll need to buy a component video cable for the Wii to hook it up if your TV has no composite inputs.

Component Cables for the Wii

TV's have inputs on the side and rear. If the TV truly has HDMI, USB and nothing else (which I find hard to believe), then you'll need a cheap home theather 5.1 receiver. Ifyou get a cheap one with HDMI out, it should have a few composite inputs on the backside. A cheap sony one can be had for sub $200. If you hook the Wii into the receiver via composite, and the receiver into the TV via HDMI, it will allow you to hook up and play the Wii (and it may upconvert it too, depending on the receiver).

When power turned on the tv clicks on of then finally comes on after several mins

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the television makes a clicking sound.

NOTE: If a Sony® television with the TV Guide On Screen® system is being used, and is not getting a TV Guide signal, a clicking noise may be heard every 5 to 10 minutes.To keep this from happening, perform a factory reset and do not enable the TV Guide On Screen system during the set up.
  1. Change the channel or video input of the television.IMPORTANT: If the noise only occurs on a specific channel or input, the issue may be with the signal being received. It may be necessary to contact the signal provider.
  2. Turn off the television.
  3. Ensure that any Audio/Video (A/V) components are connected to the television properly.
  4. Remove all third party Audio/Video (A/V) components connected to the television.NOTE: If the issue resolved after removing third party A/V components, one of those components is the cause of the issue. To determine exactly which component is causing the issue, reconnect each A/V component independently and check the status after each component is connected.
  5. Unplug television power cord from the AC outlet.
  6. Let the television set without power for 30 seconds.
  7. Plug the television power cord back into the AC outlet.
  8. Turn on the television.
  9. If the issue is still unresolved after completing all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required.

DVD plays only in black and white

Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

No component video output

Hope this helps

The Yamaha HTR-6030 offers two types of video monitor output: Component and Composite. You may need to connect both types to your television as the HTR-6030 does not have composite to component video conversion. In other words, to view your VCR on your TV, you need to use the composite video monitor connection. However, for a DVD player or other source that has component video connections, use the component video monitor output to your TV. If your TV has both types, you simply switch between the two with your TV remote to access the proper video monitor output signal from the HTR-6030.

Video distortion

Only thing I can suggest would be:
A. Look for any magnetic or other interference on any of the cables if there are bare wires somewhere.

B. Get a separate video switcher or run all your video to TV. If you are using component, the signal is a low quality anyways, but the same can happen to any type of connection
