Do you get any sound from the TV audio when you power on Wii?

Have you tried another TV?
Was it working before or is this a first time you are connecting this Wii?

There are a lot of possibilities and it is a matter of knowing more about the situation rather than just a one liner.

Why cant i get my wii console to work in color


Well it might either be the tv or the av cables that is causing the wii system to be in black grey and white then.

Incripted wii remote


1. Ensure that the Sensor Bar cord is plugged to the back of the console, and is placed properly at the center of your TV screen. For detailed directions on setting up the Sensor Bar, please click here.

2. Check to be sure the Wii Remote is synced to the console, by using the Power button on the Wii Remote to turn the console on. (The power button is the small white button with the red symbol in the top-left corner, just above the Control Pad). If this doesn't work, try to sync the Wii Remote. Once synced, try to turn the power on the console on and check for proper response.

3. Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly in front of the TV and that there are no bright light sources affecting the Wii Remote's operation (review Game Play Guidelines for more information), and that the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup). Avoid sources of infrared light in the gameplay area such as electric, propane or kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, and stoves or other sources of heat.

If you are still experiencing problems after trying the steps above, there could be a problem with your Sensor Bar.

We are trying to hook up our wii console how do you get it to work. TV says invaild scan freq.


You have to hook it up to a standard Yellow/Red/White RCA jack. If it doesn't work on one, try another. Make sure you're on the proper input you hooked it up to on the T.V. If this doesn't work, try hooking it up to a different T.V. to rule out the Wii as the problem. Try hooking up a DVD player to the same RCA jack as the Wii was on the Hitachi. After all of these troubleshooting methods, you should be able to get your Wii properly hooked up.

The wii turns on but does not show a picture


Make sure your video input cable is plugged in all the way to the TV and the Wii, If that doesn't work then the cable may be broken and you may need to get another one.

I accidentally set my wii to HDTV settings and I need to reset it back to normal tv but my screen is so messed up I cant see options or anything


You can reset your Nintendo Wii video settings to use Composite (or RCA - Yellow, Red and White) cables by doing the following:

1. Make sure the Nintendo Wii is powered off and a red light is showing.

2. With the power off, unplug the video cables from the back of the Nintendo Wii, leave them plugged into your TV (these should be the RCA/Composite cables)

3. Press the Power button on the front of Nintendo Wii. Make sure the cables are still unplugged.

4. Keep the Nintendo Wii powered on and plug your cables back into it with it still running.

5. If all went well, the picture should appear normally now.

6. Once the picture has reappeared, you should go into the Nintendo Wii Menu (the Wii button in the bottom left hand corner) and change the display back to 480i to make the changes permanent.

My wii wont turn on the power does not show a light


Try a different outlet to make sure the outlet you have it on is good or not.

If a different outlet didn't make it turn on then at that point, try another ac adapter for the Wii. If a different adapter doesn't work then you know the main board inside of the Wii is bad.
