Re: Got nothing

To test your wires I would try using the Cable or RCA cables on a SNES or Gamecube if you have those systems near at hand. Nintendo was nice and made universal RCAs for a while.

I have an issue like this and I know its not my wires, thanks to them working in my SNES.

Re: Got nothing

You may have either a problem with your wires, or you may have a problem with the settings on your TV/VCR/DVD.

When PS3 is powered on the TV states either no input or audio only, blue screen nothing else.

Try this: Power off the ps3 (red light) then hold down the power button until you hear 2 beeps and let go. that should work, you just needed to reset the ps3 to work on your tv from HD to the AV cable or vice versa

Bought new componant cables for new tv and the wii will not play in color. tryed moving cables around still no luck the different combo's that i tried either switched every thing to all red or all blue!...

Make sure the colors line up.

If the tv has a second componant input then test it in that input.
What model tv are you pluging it into?
Did the wii work on the old cable?

No picture are sound,have tried new leads but nothing

need a bit more info. Do you have TV set to the correct input that you have the Wii plugged into. What type of AV plug are you using is it standard yellow, white and red plugs or are you connecting with component cables that have extra green, blue and red cables as well as the standard ones. You need tv set to component input if using the component cables.

Light is on and green but no video coming out to television what might be the problem.

Typically, this problem occurs if the audio/video (A/V) cable is not connected correctly, or if the A/V cable is faulty.

Solution 1: Set the television or monitor to the correct input
Make sure that the TV or monitor is set to the correct input for the console. Check the TV or monitor's manual to see how to configure the video inputs, or try to use the console on a different TV or monitor.

Solution 2: Connect the A/V cable securely
Sometimes, you can insert the A/V cable far enough to prevent any red lights from flashing on the Xbox 360 console but not far enough for the console to transmit images or sounds to the screen.

Solution 3: Switch the Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable to the correct setting
Make sure that the TV/HDTV switch on the cable is set correctly.
  • For standard-definition TVs with only the yellow connector plugged in, set the switch to TV.
  • For high-definition TV or monitors with the red, blue, and green connectors plugged in, set the switch to HDTV.

No colour

Hi, Definitely a TV issue for me. Changed Wii to another input on TV and resolved situation. Need now to check how to get my TV to recognize colour on AV2 & 3 because I prefer to keep DVD input as AV1!

I had to use the (RCA) video inputs and not the component inputs. These are the ones made for video games. If you want to use the component input (Component cables are Red,White Red, Green, Blue). If you don't have any, you should be able to purchase them at your local electronics store like Radio Shack or Best Buy. Hope this helps, read below:

TV (This is your cable connection or TV; coax)
Component 1 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
Component 2 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
HDMI 1 (HDMI Cable)
HDMI 2 (HDMI Cable)
Video 1 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)
Video 2 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)

DO YOU FIX PS3s... I have tryed everything i can think of incloding different cables HD & normal,different TVs HD & normal Also holding down the power button and waiting for the beeps.But nothing...

  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).


Have a look at this, it may help.

The wires from the wii to hook into my samsung t.v. do not match is there an alternative wire configuration that I might be able to obtain?

The cables that come with the Wii are composite video cables with the standard red, yellow and white cables. You might be trying to plug them into the component video input, which has red, blue, and green.

Check your TV to see if you have any red, yellow, white inputs. Use that input if you are using the cables that same with the console.

Alternatively, you can buy component video cables for the Wii. This will be for the red, blue and green input. This will provide you with higher definition (480p vs. 480i) and a slightly sharper picture.

Good luck.

The colors on all the games or now red and green. All are also faded.What do I need to do?

  • Make sure all the component video cables are properly plugged in,
  • perhaps you may have mistaken one of the inputs for video as the audio connector (red one) also
  • if you're using a VGA cable,sometimes the pins come a little loose, and the the connector needs
  • to be reseated and jiggled until you get the full colored output signal. (rare, unless it is disconnected and reconnected a lot.)
I hope This Helps. Just Double check the inputs and makes sure everything is hooked up correctly.
This same result happened to me when I tried to connect my component cable to the back of my tv with out looking back there to make sure I did it right.
