I've connected the red, yellow and white plugs from the Wii to the TV, and when I press inout on the remote, none of the options get me anywhere (TV, Component 1, Component 2, Composite 1, Composite 2, etc.) . All I get is a black screen that says no signal.

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 you have the following, Your Wii system, your TV router (The red, yellow, and white plugs), And the charger. When you set up your Wii, Connect the red, white, and yellow plugs to the correct sockets on the side or the back of your TV. Once you do that, Turn on your Wii, Press Input on your tv, And it should bring you to AV2 or something similar, and theres your Wii.
Most TVs have a yellow video and a white audio and red audio input. The Wii comes with a cable to connect to a TV with a yellow, white and red RCA cable. Plug in the large block end of this cable to the Wii (rectangle block) and the other end into the TV using the yellow plug to the yellow input jack and the white plug to the white input jack and red to red. Select on the TV using the TV remote, the input where the Wii is hooked up. This is the standard way.
your cable is split into two different connections for your tv... the red green and blue cables are for HD only. They are their own little set. the yellow cable is your video cable for normal tv's. the red and white cables are sound cables, also for normal tv's. I would unplug the red, green, and blue cables, and use the yellow, red (right sound), and white (left sound).
Was trying to use the component option on the screen, as this had the red, yellow and white plugs shown. Eventually tried all the other options and found that it was plugged into Video 1! Works perfectly. Should try all the options on the TV!
Take the adapter cable from the Wii that plugs into the back of the Wii and converts the output(audio/video) into RCA style pin plugs, you will have: RED=right channel audio, plug it into any of the red audio INPUT on your Onkyo, then you will have WHITE=left channel audio, plug it into the other white INPUT jack next to the red plug on the Onkyo, then you will have YELLOW= video(picture) that will go directly to the yellow video INPUT on the back or side INPUTS of your TV.
Then when you want to play the Wii, set the input mode on the Onkyo to the inputs that you connected the red and white plugs into, then change the input on your TV to which ever the input is labeled on your TV in which you plugged the yellow plug into, you now will have sound comming from your Onkyo and the Wii up on the TV screen ready to play. Good luck!
Are you connecting you Wii to a progressive scan TV input (2 for audio (red)(white), 3 for video (yellow)(blue)(red)?
It's possible you have the red audio and red video inputs switched.
If you have the regular AV-Cable (2 for audio (red)(white), 1 for video (yellow)), and your TV has 5 inputs (progressive), look for the 3 inputs (2 for audio (red)(white), 1 for video (yellow). If it doesn't, connect it to a VCR and run the Wii through the VCR input.
Do you have cables for the wii? I would try the cables in the package to connect your wii to your tv. Your tv should have a analoge connection. In form of a scart or in form of three plugs. If you are using a scart just click it in the tv and in the wii. With the three pulgs you must connect all three plugs in your tv, they have matching collors, white in white, red in red and yellow in yellow. That would do the trick.
Your LCD TV should have one of the following types of inputs:
Composite. This is usually a yellow jack, along with red and white jacks for audio. If your TV has these, which it should, then the cable that comes with the Wii will plug directly into these jacks. Plug the yellow to the yellow jack, the red to the red jack, and the white to the white jack.
S-Video. This is a flat black jack. There are four little holes, and one "flat" rectagular hole. There should also be a red and white jack that go along with this for audio. In order to connect to this input, you will need to purchase an S-Video output cable for the Wii. Most stores that sell Wiis will sell a third-party cable for this. This connection will give you a significantly better picture than Composite. S-Video does not carry audio, so you still need to plug the red plug into the red jack and the white plug into the white jack or you'll get only video and no audio!
Component video. This is a triplet of Red, Green and Blue jacks. There is usually a set of red and white jacks along with them for audio again. This connection will give you the best picture, and you can set your Wii to EDTV (Progressive) mode. To connect to this input, you will need to get the Wii Component Video cable. Most stores that sell Wiis will either sell the official Nintendo one, or a third-party cable. Connect the red plug to the red jack, the green plug to the green jack, and the blue plug to the blue jack. Also connect the red audio plug to the red audio jack and the white audio plug to the white audio jack. Be careful not to get the red audio plug confused with the red video plug! If you see a picture, but the colors are wrong, then you either swapped the red and blue, or you connected the red audio plug instead of the red video plug.
