Wii to Philips LCD TV 32"" - sound but no video. Just bought a refurb. Philips LCD TV for our WII. The standard AV cable gave sound, no video. The warning message flashes up in the beginning...

Looks like the AV port in your Philips television is busted. It's the only factor if the Wii is able to function with other tv with the same cable. You can either purchase a new television/get the one you have fixed (these will cost money) or you could just purchase an hdmi cable which doesn't use the same port so it could possibly work with your Philips television.

No sound on wii

Hello :

1: Make sure you have the volume on the TV turned up and the audio-video connections plugged into the same-colour plugs. Sound only kicks-in once you are at the Wii menu. If this doesn't work, continue to step 2.

2. Test the Wii with another TV. If you have sound there, then it is possible that the HDTV's sound inputs plugs are damaged. Send your HDTV off for repairs.

3. If the Wii does not work with the other TV, then it is likely that the audio cables are damaged. Order a replacement from Nintendo (instructions are in the Wii user's guide)

good luck .

rate please !

Nintendo Wii works fine on standard tv but not on hdtv.

FOUND THE PROBLEM !!!!! The problem appears to be the Freeview somehow interfering with the Wii signal. When the aeriel lead is removed the Wii works fine, and the audio/visual signal is great. When the aeriel lead is in I have the problems. I hope this solution proves to be of use to anyone else having similar problems.

Black wii screen but can hear it

Your cables still could be going bad, even though everything else is fine I would go to a gamestop and buy a used cable and see if that works or go buy a brand new one.

There is no color or sound with my Wii. What do I need to do to get color and sound?

Is your tv set to show color? Is it a monochrome TV? Are all of the cables pushed in all the way? Make sure that you have the cable on the Wii pushed in all the way, then make sure that you have all the cables connected properly, all of them are connected to the "Input" slots as follows: Video(yellow) to Video(yellow), Red(right audio) to Red(right audio), White(left audio) to White(left audio). If it still doesn't work, try connecting it to another input on your TV, as the current input may be faulty.
