Question about Nintendo Wii Console
This is a common problem I see...however mine is a little more...odd.
My wii doesn't even show anything. Ever. It turns on and nothing shows up. Black screen.
Oddly enough, the sound works. This is leading me to believe that it has something to do with it being on HD mode? I had it hooked up to an HD tv at home but now at college it's on standard. Is there any way to change it to standard without...having a screen to look at?
Or is this a different problem in general?
I put the wii on, powers up but i get a total black screen. wiimote does not connect either. what can i do to resolve this?
i have already disconnected all wires and connections, left it off for hours and tried putting it on again. no change. Black screen still remains. HELPPPP

No sexyvimbi, it is just you have the HD cable sockets, so you need to buy the HD cables for your wii

Reduce wireless interference
Because the Wii Remote is wireless, outside interference likecell phones, computers (when there are online and connected to theInternet wirelessly), radios, wireless keyboards, and other devices cancause interference. Turn off those devices and/or disconnect anycomputers from the Internet.
Use a wired Nintendo GameCube controllor
When playing games on the Wii that support the Nintendo GameCube controllor, use that instead of the Wii Remoteand classic controllor. Before you start the game, plug in the GameCubecontrollor in the Wii's GameCube controllor ports (if your Wii isstanding up, open the lid on the top of the Wii to see the GameCubecontrollor ports). Once you start the channel, the Wii will recognizethe controllor.
Important Note: This only works with wired GameCube controllors.
Black screen, no connection solution
Another solution to this probelm is as follows
How is the setup between the Wii and the Wii Remote?
Problems can occur if your Wii is not set up properly, especially with the Wii Remote. Please read this FAQ about the Wii for more information on how to probably set up your Wii for maximum performance.
Do you hack your Wii?
If you hack your Wii, then this can cause major internal damage to the Wii and may result in the Black Screen of Death. The only difference however, is that this is not because of a connection problem, but because the Wii had suffered a fatal error. The only way to resolve this is to contact Nintendo for repairs...

It may be that your visual cord could be shorted out. Have you tried buying a new audio video cord?

I did the same thing. I think It needs to be plugged into a HD TV to see what your doing to change it back.

All you have to do is unplug EVERYTHING and keep it unpluged for atleast 15min.

Okay. I got it back on screen without using a HDTV. What you need to do is unplug the component Cable (the red,blue,green one) from the back of the Wii and plug in the standard video cable (Yellow, Red, White) and then plug this into your yellow, red, white video input on your TV. This will automatically change the Wii video output settings back to standard definition. After you have got the image back on standard video, you can now turn off the Wii and plug in your component cable and plug it back into the component input on your TV to get the nicer picture quality when you turn the WII back on. DO NOT CHANGE IT BACK TO HD OUTPUT IN THE WII SETTINGS! The Wii will automatically recognise your using a component cable on a standard TV and give you the superior standard component video output. Only ever change it to HD output if your TV is HD. If you do it again by accident do what I said above and it will fix it. The end.
