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.

Conecting Wii to a Phillips lcd tv. rwy cords. but the picture is in black & white ?? i have sound. tried different connections eg: red to green conections & the only one that works is still black...


it sounds like you may be trying to plug a standard composit video cable (yellow) into a component video input (red, green, and blue)
these are actually two different connections. Most LCD tv's will have both options (sometimes there in weird different spots on the tv tho) if you don't have a standard RGB (red, white, and yellow composite video input) then you may need to purchase a component cable either at a local store or you can get one for $5 on Ebay
hope it helps!
~good luck!

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

Hello :




1:Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console.
2:

Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the TV. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

Yellow = Video Input
White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
Red = Audio Input Right

3:Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, you must find the Input Select for your TV to view the game (it is likely not going to be seen on Channel 3 or 4). Typically this is found by pressing the TV/Video button on the Television's front panel or remote control. If you have more than one input channel, keep pressing TV/Video until you see the display from the Wii.
If you do not have a TV/Video button, then the input could be labeled something different. Some other common input selects to look for on the TV or remote are: Input, Input Select, EXT, AUX, or a channel such as 00 or 99.

I hope this will help .

How do I hook up my Wii Console to my new Emerson


I found a better way and it works fine. I have a new 32 inch Emerson, with only one composit hood up ( which won't work with the wii) 2 HDMI's ( again does not hook up to the wii, the monitor hook up for PC, red and white ( yellow plus is not there it's for a stereo they told me), and the usb hook up ( which is more for pictures I was told by the company).The answer was to hook my RCA plus to the red and white under the composite, then hook the yellow into the green plug of the composite, and behold- my will now works fine.

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.

Can hook up my wii to this tv


The AV Multi Out plug that is included with the Wii will allow you to connect the console to most televisions or video cassette recorders (VCR). First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have colored holes label "Input". Though most TVs have them, almost all VCRs do as well.

  • Audio/Video (AV) inputs are located on the front or back of the TV or VCR.
  • They are smooth silver posts with the inside showing a color, usually red, white and yellow.
  • Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN.
  • The image on the left features stereo audio inputs. Some televisions have only one audio input. Click here for help setting up a mono audio connection.
  • Do NOT connect your system to anything marked OUT.
Where do you have these inputs?
Additional Options:



Connecting to a Television
  1. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console. setuptvav.gif


  2. Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the TV. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

    Yellow = Video Input
    White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
    Red = Audio Input Right

Connecting to a VCR, DVD-R, Cable Box, etc.
    In order to connect a video game system through a device such as a VCR, DVR, cable or satelite box, it must have Video and Audio "inputs." While most VCRs and VCR/DVD combos have these inputs, other devices typically have "Outputs" which will not work for playing your Wii console. Please verify the device you are attempting to use has these holes.
    While many cable/satelite boxes and DVRs may have "inputs," accessing them can be difficult. Please consult the instruction manual for the device you are connecting to, for more information.
  1. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console. setupvcrav.gif


  2. Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the VCR. Make sure you are plugging the connectors into the holes labeled"Input" or "In". Holes labeled"Output" or "Out" will not work. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

    Yellow = Video Input
    White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
    Red = Audio Input Right
    Interested in playing your games in Dolby Pro Logic II (simulated surround sound)? Click here setup information.

  3. Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, put your TV on the channel you use to watch movies (usually channel 3 or 4). Put in a video tape and play the movie. When you see the movie playing, press stop (do not power off the VCR!) and proceed to the next step.

  4. You will now need to find the Input Select for your VCR. This is usually a button on the original remote control that is labeled Input Select, AUX, Input, EXT, Line In, or a high or low channel. For more information on locating your input select, click here.

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.
