How to switch tv to play games


well there should be an option on your remote labled either source or input. that allows you to change from the iputs on your tv. you need to know which input you plugged your wii into. if you select the option and match your tv input to where you plugged your wii into and you still have no pic.make sure your wii is powered on. as well make sure you plugged the cables in correctly. if your using componet cables its red green blue for video and red and white for audio. make sure the audio and video are not crossed that will cause pic distortion. and if your using composite cables makes sure its red yellow and white plugged into red yellow and white. yellow is for video and red and white are your audio. if all this is correct and still no pic. then it's either your wii or your TV.

I just bought a wii and I'm hooking it up to an older model tv. the inputs are on the front and there is only one audio input and one video input. I plug in the red cable in audio and I hear the music...


Hello
The yellow cable needs to go to video.The red and white are left and right speakers or stereo.Usually there is a yellow for video,the cable doesnt have to be yellow, another red or white will work.It just needs to be in the video jack or output.

You need one more cable for video.Also be sure your tv is set to the correct input for the wii to work.Possibly it may need to be on channel 3 or 4. Or if the tv is newer try component or any input available in the tvs setup menu.

How do i connect my nintendo to my samsung led tv


I am assuming that you are talking about a Nintendo Wii.  When you buy a Wii it comes with standard RCA composite cables that are three colors, Red, White and Yellow.  Yellow is the cable that carries the video signal and the red/white carry the stereo audio signal.  You would need to connect these cables into the corresponding color inputs on your tv.  Plug the yellow ended cable into the yellow jack on your TV and do the same for the red and white cables.  After this is done, you will need to switch your tv's input to the input that corresponds to the one you plugged those cables into.   Some newer flat panel TVs do not come with RCA composite inputs.  If this is your problem, you will need to get some component cables for your Wii.  These cables look identical to RCA (composite) cables but come in colors red, green, blue, red and white.  In this case the red, green and blue cables carry the video signal and the red and white carry the audio.  You can purchase these from just about any store that carries the Wii or online from places such as Amazon.com.

You would hook these up the same way by matching the colors and then changing your tv to the corresponding input.

Hope that helps!

I cant connect my wii to my tv. can you give me instructions how?


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.

I hooked the Wii up to a different tv than I had it on before. Now, it is in black and white and there is no sound. I am able to go into a game. What can be wrong?


I am guessing that you mistakenly plugged your Wii console cables into a component input section, rather than the normal AV or AV2 input. You can easily tell this by finding out which input station you have to select with your TV remote. If it is component 1 or 2 then your problem you plugged the cords into the wrong section. If you notice in the picture that the component are red, green, and blue, and the AV are red, white, and yellow. The Wii hook up cable is made for the Red, White, and Yellow. Just use a flash light and make sure you are plugging them into the right spot.bagdad319.jpg

I have a new LG SL90 television. I also have a


If you do not have a scart socket available on the tv you need to get a wii component cable that contains the six input jacks. HD tv's tend to have these inputs on the back, you have the normal red, white and yellow jacks plus another red green and blue you'll need to plug in from the component cable. If you have an AV input with just red, white and yellow you can remove the scart adapter from the normal wii av cable and plug the separate jacks into that too.

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.

How to hook up wii to surround sound


You need to connect your amplifier to your TV, (Video Out of Amp to video In of TV), then select the input where you connected your WII in amp.
Or you could just connect the yellow plug to the TV directly, and the white and red plug to your amplifier.
A note thou, Red and White will not give "True" surround sound as it has only 2 channels, you need to connect a digital input to the amp to get true surround.

Let me know what happens

Polaroid tv Wii connection


Your LCD TV should have one of the following types of inputs:
  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
