The usb port in Wii is for input devices (i.e. external HDD, Wii keyboard etc.) and can't use it to output signal going to your TV , its only the AV cable supplied by wii you can use to connect to tv. If the TV has no RCA input (yellow, white & red connections) you can buy AV to HDMI adaptor or AV to VGA adaptor to connect your wii to your new tv model.
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.
If you have an old V.C.R that has Red, White and Yellow sockets for AV and it still works then plug it into the RF socket tune the V.C.R to your TV and connect your Wii to the Red,White and Yellow R.C.A connections and you should be playing in no time. I have done this myself on a new Samsung TV it will work. If you have no V.C.R and you have HDMI sockets in your TV you can buy an adapter to convert the existing AV port on the Wii to HDMI then simply connect a HDMI cable (if you have 1 if not they are cheap enough off eBay starting at $6.00+AUD or around $20.00AUD Retail) to the Wii and then the TV ensuring that both the TV and the Wii are powered down prior to connecting any cables at the back. The HDMI Adapter for Wii is available on eBay from $5.00 AUD to $24.95AUD depending on the country you purchase it from. If all else fails a second TV with Red, White and Yellow RCA plugs will work but also the most expensive of the fixes. All fixes suggested will work. Good Luck I hope this helps.
Make sure the 3 cables that connect to your TV are in the right places, they are colour coded. Also make sure they are firmly connected to the sockets. Lastly, depending on what TV you have, try connecting the cables in different sockets as most newer TV's have more than one place they go, and also check you are selecting the right AV channel, if you are, then press the coloured button on your remote straight away again once you have selected the correct AV channel, this also may resolve the problem. I had a similar problem with a Panasonic TV. Please clarify TV make and what cables you are using to connect to your TV if all fails...
how are you connecting the wii to the tv...through the rca jacks? If so, you can not get to the input channels by the channel button. On the remote there will be a button called either AV, Input, AV Video, Video, A/V, Input or something similar. Hit this button until your tv goes to the appropriate av channel.
Is this your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved
it to another TV or VCR?
The AV Multi Out plug that is included with the Wii will allow you
to connect the console to most televisions or video cassette recorders
(VCR). First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and
see if you have colored holes label "Input". Though most
TVs have them, almost all VCRs do as well.
Audio/Video (AV) inputs are located on the front or back of the TV or VCR.
They are smooth silver posts with the inside showing a color, usually red, white and yellow.
Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN.

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