Re: hooking up vcr and wii game with out disconnecting...

Depending on your vcr (really need a description of its input and outputs) you may be able to connect the game to the VCR's inputs and just run the signal through it.
An 'S-video' cable stands for Separate video, abbreviated S-Video and also known as Y/C (or erroneously, S-VHS and "super video") is an analogue video signal that carries the video data as two separate signals (brightness and colour), unlike composite video which carries the video signals mixed in one line. S-Video, as most commonly implemented, carries 480i or 576i resolution video, i.e. standard definition video. S-Video does not carry audio on the same cable.

I have a 2011 Sanyo 50 tv and the picture and sound goes on and off could it be a video card?

Just disconnect the audio card and check whether the TV works without it, and no problem is with the picture. If so, make sure the audio card has the problem. If not the main board is faulty. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Well i plug in the wii and i took it out but when i took it out i guess i pulled out the wrong plugs and now the tv won't show a picture or play audio

It sounds like you've disconnected your wii and are now trying to watch tv on the same input as your wii once was. You need to check your television for a button labelled "input" or on older model TV's "tv/vcr".
A trick you can use is simple: find the remote or use the channel up/down buttons on the television. Change the channel. You should now be watching your cable!

A side note: If someone else set up your television, they may have used a different input for a cable/satellite box. In this case you would just need to press "input" until something comes up on the screen.

How do i hook up the ps2 and wii

Assuming you have your cable or satellite hooked up to a component in, you can hook up either the Wii or PS2 to the other component input. The other will have to hooked up to the S-video input or composite. (Personally, I'd hook up the PS2 to a component in and the Wii to S-video as the Wii is only a standard definition game platform anyway.) Good luck.

I cant find the video input for dvd

It sounds like your unit has no AV jack on it. Therefor the best way to resolve this is to use a cable box or a vcr so the output for the vcr or cable box can be connected to the tvs antennae jack, through the coaxial cable, and the game unit can be connected to the audio video jacks of the vcr or cable box.

Simply switch the vcr or cable box to the line mode to activate the game port.

When sony blu-ray plays, lg 52lg70 tv power turns off and on. i connected sony to small vizio and it plays fine.the connection is hdmi.i hooked up a wii game and it plays fine. please help

Try using a different HDMI cable; one that is not simplay or 1.3.
The HDMI can control functions of the TV.
If you get a cheaper cable it may not do this.
