I recently purchased a Component cable set for the wii. I plugged in the Green, blue and red cables, it worked fine and the picture quality was greatly improved. However the extra red and white cables had nowhere to plug in. It tried two extra slots. One was labled for PC Audio and the other for Component audio. Neither allowed the component to plug in properly, they were both Headphone sockets. I looked through the manual and the component audio port had to have an extra cable to provide sound. I looked through my TV's box and i found it. It fitted into the Audio slot but on the end of it were two plugs that looked identical to the wii audio component cables. They were both red and white. I don't know what to do now, but my TV is a Technika 21.6" LCD TV. I don't know how to set up my HD gaming for Wii with sound, please help!
Here are the details i found from my TV if it is any help.
What you do is plug in the HD cables as you previously stated and then place the red and white cords where you would normally put then like when you plug in a dvd player or the place you normally would plug in the red and white cables.

If you're using composite video cables (red/white/yellow) but your TV doesn't have a yellow jack to plug into, plug the yellow cable into the green "Y" plug instead. If there is more than one set of video jacks on your TV, make sure you're using the first set, usually labeled "Video 1" or "Component 1". If it still comes up in black and white after all that, you may need to look in your TV's settings menu to see if there's an option to change the settings for that port from Component to Composite.
If you're using component video cables (red/white & red/blue/green) make sure the cables are all plugged in to the proper color-coded ports on the TV. Mixing up the video cables can cause the image to show up in black and white
I am assuming that you are talking about a Nintendo Wii. When you buy a Wii it comes with standard RCA composite cables that are three colors, Red, White and Yellow. Yellow is the cable that carries the video signal and the red/white carry the stereo audio signal. You would need to connect these cables into the corresponding color inputs on your tv. Plug the yellow ended cable into the yellow jack on your TV and do the same for the red and white cables. After this is done, you will need to switch your tv's input to the input that corresponds to the one you plugged those cables into. Some newer flat panel TVs do not come with RCA composite inputs. If this is your problem, you will need to get some component cables for your Wii. These cables look identical to RCA (composite) cables but come in colors red, green, blue, red and white. In this case the red, green and blue cables carry the video signal and the red and white carry the audio. You can purchase these from just about any store that carries the Wii or online from places such as Amazon.com.
your cable is split into two different connections for your tv... the red green and blue cables are for HD only. They are their own little set. the yellow cable is your video cable for normal tv's. the red and white cables are sound cables, also for normal tv's. I would unplug the red, green, and blue cables, and use the yellow, red (right sound), and white (left sound).
need a bit more info. Do you have TV set to the correct input that you have the Wii plugged into. What type of AV plug are you using is it standard yellow, white and red plugs or are you connecting with component cables that have extra green, blue and red cables as well as the standard ones. You need tv set to component input if using the component cables.
What to do will depend on how you're connecting your Wii console to your TV.
With the yellow, white, and red AV cables that came with your system:
Did you have to use the red/green/blue inputs on your TV because it doesn't have the standard (yellow) AV inputs... if this is your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved it to another TV, . Our experience shows that many times this issue can be solved by double-checking your connection and finding the correct Input Select for your TV or VCR.
With the blue, green, white, and red component cables (sold separately):
Review our step-by-step Wii Component Cable to make sure the cables are properly inserted and that your TV is set to the proper input.
If you have verified the connection is correct, and are still receiving a blank or black and white screen when powering on your Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700
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!
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)

The cables that come with the Wii are composite video cables with the standard red, yellow and white cables. You might be trying to plug them into the component video input, which has red, blue, and green.
Check your TV to see if you have any red, yellow, white inputs. Use that input if you are using the cables that same with the console.
Alternatively, you can buy component video cables for the Wii. This will be for the red, blue and green input. This will provide you with higher definition (480p vs. 480i) and a slightly sharper picture.
on your tv, there should be color coded ports that tell you which cords go where but im almost 100% sure that the red and white cords are for sound and the blue and green cables are for hd video hookups.
Get the Wii "COMPONENT" cable set. This set has white-red (sound) connectors plus the red-green-blue (component - video) connectors. You can get this cable where they sell the Wii. It will give you the best possible picture with this device.
Plug the Red-Green-Blue connector in their respective sockets on the NEC display (upeer right-hand side). Switch the NEC display to the DTV/HD input (upper right button on the remote).
Please note that this setup does not provide sound since the display does not have speakers.
Use the white-red connectors and plug them into your amplifier or other sound device.
I bought a wii a few days ago and like everybody else mine too was in black and white with a grainy picture. I have a Panasonic lcd flat screen and thought I had connected it corrected, I got somebody out to have a look at it and found out there are some connections on the side of the TV which I hadn't even noticed before, once I put the red white and yellow leads in these and set the TV to AV3 everything is in perfect colour. Hope this works for some of you.
