Try hooking up the Wii to another tv, or taking it to a friends house that has a wii too, that way you can check the plugs as well.

Usually when this problem happens it's the GPU chip on the motherboard.

Nintendo will have to fix it for you...usually.

When we turn to the tv to "av" we usually get signal for WII, but now it says "no signal"


Make sure your video connections are correct and make sure any external video selectors are set to the correct input. If the wii is connected directly to the AV input in the TV then check your resolution settings on the TV if possible. Try a known good wii audio/video cable to see if it has gone bad. If it still doesn't work after that then the audio video port on the back of the wii may have gone bad or the wii motherboard may have gone bad.

Wii help


Hello :




1:Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console.
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.

I hope this will help .

No color on my TV!


You should plug the Wii into the AV1 or 2 on the LCD TV and make sure that the RCA plugs are pushed in all the way. Also make sure that you have the plugs properly inserted into the back of the Wii. If all is connected verify the settings on the TV's menue and make sure that they are all correct. You may also want to verify the settings on the Wii menu.

Wii has no color


Are you connecting you Wii to a progressive scan TV input (2 for audio (red)(white), 3 for video (yellow)(blue)(red)?

It's possible you have the red audio and red video inputs switched.

If you have the regular AV-Cable (2 for audio (red)(white), 1 for video (yellow)), and your TV has 5 inputs (progressive), look for the 3 inputs (2 for audio (red)(white), 1 for video (yellow). If it doesn't, connect it to a VCR and run the Wii through the VCR input.

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.

    • Do NOT connect your system to anything marked OUT.

  • My experience shows that the majority of these issues can be solved by double-checking your connection and finding the correct Input Select for your TV or VCR.


  • If you have verified the connection is correct, and are still receiving a blank white or blank dark screen when powering on your Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired.
