to hook up your console to your tv your console has to be switched on and in good condition,A lso you will be needing an A/V(Audio-Visual) cable, a cable that has to or three outlets normally red,yellow and white(Yellow is for video while white and red are the Audio outlets for stereo) These outlets go into an inlet on your tv and the other end goes into the back of your console
This enables you to see the picture and hear the sounds.If this is done then you are good to go.
Without seeing anything, the yellow=video, the red and white=audio. The yellow/video "output" of the cable box goes to the yellow/video "input" of the TV. The red and white are the audio that go from audio "output" of the cable box to the audio "input"of the TV. I don't know what the Cable company was telling you???? The cables are "RCA" and give you the worst clarity for a picture. If you cable box has three output ports colored Red, Green, and Blue ("Component') and you TV has the same three as inputs, that will make your picture much better. If you can hook it up with the component jacks, you will still need the audio RCA (red and white) between the two units. I hope this helps.
Round peg into the round hole. Red peg on the red slot. etc. If the wire from the nintendo doesn't fit the slot on the tv then you're in the wrong slot. if the wire from the nintendo fits the slot on the tv (and is the same color if you are using red/white/yellow rca cables) then you're good. here's a hint on connection types (you will not mix):
1. RCA (red/white/yellow round connectors)
Red=right audio sound
White=left audio sound
connect to the slots that look like they want some.
2. Coaxial (stiff cable with a pinner poking out of the end -- same cable that connects you to cable tv) just hook it up by itself; it carries audio and video.
3. Component (red/green/blue)(red/white) two 'bundles'
red=red component of video
green=green component of video
blue=blue component of video
4. VGA + (red/white)
VGA=video (computer monitor cable)
5. HDMI (flat hdmi cable. you spent $30 on this 3 foot ****)
HDMI=audio and video
6. hugs and kisses
kisses=audio (both sides)
Make sure the Coaxial cables are hooked up properly. I don't know the HD colors right off hand but the normal colors are [RED Audio][WHITE Audio] and [Yellow Video]. Hope you get it hooked up with videos and sounds soon. Make sure that if your useing regular coaxial cables, your not hooking them into HD slots and Vice Versa
Double check the way you've got the cables connected. Audio but no video generally means that the yellow video cable isn't hooked up correctly.
Check to make sure the video cable (yellow) is hooked up to the same input on your television that your audio (red and white) cables are.
Put all the wires to the tv. Now you need another A\V cable (yellow, red, white) only use red and white from, audio out on tv to audio in on surround system and set it to TV. OR Put the red and white from Wii to surround system and the yellow to the tv. this way you have to use surround to hear it. The other way you can use the tv or both. The first way is ideal if you have an extra cable.
Since you have a surround sound system, you probably should just bypass the TV's audio.
Connect the red/white plugs from your digital cable box to one of the inputs on your surround sound system but not the Phono input unless the Phono input lists something aside from Phono, like Aux/Phono or CD/Phono.
Connect the S-Video or composite (yellow) video plug from your digital cable box directly to the S-Video or composite (yellow) video jack on your TV.
If your digital cable box does not have a S-Video (4 pins and flat rectangular hole) or Composite (yellow RCA jack) jack and only has the screw/push-on type cable with the pin in it, then leave the remaining connections as-is.
Now switch your surround sound system to the input you connected the red and white plugs to and turn on your TV. You should see picture from the TV, but hear audio from the surround sound system.
It sounds like your cables are connceted ok, but what you neede to do is to be able the switch from one video mode to the other so lets go through the cable and vrc conncetions again just to make sure.
From your cable set top box connect your component video (RGB) video out to your TV (RGB) video in via the (RGB)cables.
From your VCR connect your composite video (yellow) out to your TV composite video in withe the composite video (yellow) cable.
From your VCR (Left & Right audio out)connect your left and right audio connections (White and Red) to the Audio in of the TV (Left and Right).
Whith this setup you should be able to use the TV to switch between the two A/V inputs using the remote control.
