Unless the Wii is sending the video signal in component form, you have a case where the signals are not compatible. The Wii is sending "composite" and the TV is expecting component. With the composite signal the Y input, the result will be a B&W picture. Either set the Wii to send component or connect it to the composite input on the TV.

My wii stopped working


Hi R Cream, Can you please add details in the comment box?
What exactly indicates that it's stopped working?
Are there any lights that turn on (if so, include the color of these lights), any audible sounds coming from the wii, do the RCA input(the red, white & yellow ports) to the tv work on other devices(e.g; a DVD player), anything at all displaying on the tv(if so, what), etc.
To rule out defective parts, a good test would be to ask a friend who also owns a wii, to test your console using their cables.

High Def input search


It sounds like you arent using the correct ports for a HD tv or arent using a HD digital player or HD cable. Still having problem let me know but thats what it looks like to me. Do you have anything plugged into these ports from a HD device? DVD,Digital Recorder, etc?

Can not hook the TV up to the Wii, it won't come in, I have a new RCA TV . The back of it has a orange color pug in not a yellow and I pug it in and I also don't know what setting to put it on


A newer TV may mean that your wii is not setup to use the proper resolution(HDTV). Are there 1, 3 or 5 RCA ports on the back of your tv?
Some tv's have more than 1 set of RCA ports..are there no ports on the side of your tv? If so, try those instead.
If you have 5 ports only, you may need to use the green one for the yellow cable. This might result in a black & white image, and will be used purely to change your wii settings to use a higher resolution.

How to plug a wii to a proscan "32" tv


If the TV has an unused HDMI port, use the HDMI cable that comes with the WII . If not , then use the 5 cable Hi def cable . Match the colors RGB on the cables to the same color input jacks on the TV The red and white cables are the audio. Make sure you don't get the wrong red cable mixed up. Note the input number near the jacks you use on the back of the TV. Select that number with the input button on the remote to see the picture.

Connect a Wii to VCR


Hello
Take the Wii's audio/video cable and the power cord and hook them up in the back of the Wii.
Take the Wii's audio/video cable and plug it into the 'audio-in and video-in sockets on your VCR.Make sure you match the cable colors with the input colors.i.e white goes with white,yellow with yellow and red with red.
Take the RCA cable which looks like the picture below,

and plug one end of this audio/video cable into the 'audio out' and 'video out' ports on the VCR.Make sure the cable and ports colors match.
Now take the other end of the RCA cable and plug into the 'audio in' and 'video in' ports on your TV.Again make sure you match the color connections.

Hope it helps.

Trying to hook up a dvd and wii with direct tv and can"t get sound out of wii! HELP Can you show me where to plug cords in?


Your TV has two sets of AV inputs. One on the side and one at the back. The Wii has a 3RCA cable ( Yellow / Red & White ) . Connect these jacks to the corresponding color sockets on the side input of your TV. Select that input on the TV and your Wii sound and picture should come on.
For the DVD player you have to get a 5 RCA component cable. This cable will have 5 colored jacks, connect the White & Red to the Audio in of the TV and then connect the Red/Blue/Green jacks to the component video input of the TV.Do the same at the DVD's end also. Setect that source on the TV and you should hear the DVD sound and picture.bobhifi_31.jpg

I disconnected the wii at the back of the tv and installed a piggy back plug so I could watch my vcr or play wii. Now I have no color when I use the wii although the tv is fine. I removed the piggyback...


Your wii automatically set itself to HD but your tv doesn't support it. You need to change your wii to standard definition under video settings.

I just got a new 46" vizo & dont know what ports to plug my wii into? i know the cords are red white & yellow but not the ones on the tv. totally confused.


Many large HDTV's will have alternately colored slots to enable 5 connector HD cables. You can plug the Red White and Yellow cords into non-matching ports (green, black, etc) until you have color picture and stereo sound. This will not damage your TV or Wii. You can also buy cables for your Wii that will match the connectors on the back of your television, as well as give your Wii higher resolution capabilities. Which you can purchase at any electronics store.

Hooked up cable box, wii box and dvd player to new lg 50 inch 720p plasma tv... all external components work, however, dvds and wii only show in black and white - no color...


Connect the Wii and the DVD player to different ports on the TV to and any other device to the port in which the Wii and the DVD player were connected to check if the issue is with the port.

If other devices also display in black and white after connecting them to the port to which the Wii and the DVD player were originally connected then the ports require servicing.
