Hi again, I'm reposting this in case it missed you in the Live Session.

...Catch up queries: Does the GE have: a) A/V button in the remote; b) AUX button; VIDEO1, 2 or 3 and c) are there any connection points in the front panel of the TV as well? if present, perhaps you can try those other than the ones at the back...

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How can I hook up my Wii to my mothers TV? It is usually connected to my TV...I cant get the Wii to acknowledge the Wii remote at all.I even tried changing the batteries/remote but nothing. My 10yr old...


To get the Wii Mote Connected to your wii Take off the back cover of the Wii Mote, Hold down the Red button for a few seconds, Then on the Wii Console pull open the little door just under the Disc Drive and press the Red button on there. This will allow the Wii-Mote to "Sync" to a different Wii-Console
Hope This Helps.

JUST BOUGHT wii SPORTS FOLLOWED THE STEPS TO


The best thing I can think of is to turn on the wii, go to the tv and press tv/video once and if nothing shows up then press it again (this will take your tv to video 2) and if that doesn't work then turn your tv to channel 3 or 4 and see if one of those channels work, also if your wii is plugged into a vcr or dvd player make sure that vcr/dvd player is on!
I'd recommend just directly plugging the wii into the tv though on the count that its easier to setup that way...

If this doesn't work then call nintendo because their customer service is superb in my opinion.

I need to know what channel to operate my wii on. I have a toshiba tv that is about 8 years old.


Try changing the TV inputs to VIDEO or AUX, using the remote or a button on your TV. If there is not a way to connect the Wii to the TV using the 3-cable system (Yellow, Red and White), then you might have to use a VCR or DVD player to plug the 3 cables into and then transmit the audio and video from the Wii using the regular cable line of VCR or DVD Player on TV channels 3 or 4. If your Wii has a regular TV Cable jack on the back, connect that to the jack on the back of you TV and select channel 3 or 4.

TV went to black and white when hooking up the wii


You probably don't have something hooked up right or connected all the way. If you are using component video cables, make sure that all of the different plugs are plugged into the matching socket on your TV. Also, make sure you have your TV on the right channel (3 or 4) if that's how you have it setup.
Otherwise, you will want to look at the input settings on your TV and make sure you are receiving the correct input, and if you have your Wii plugged into a VCR instead of directly to your TV, try hooking it up directly to see if it works.
If that doesn't work, try using a different TV - especially if it's a TV you know works in color with a Wii. If it is still in black and white, you might need to take it back to the store and exchange it for a new one.

I can't figure out the input select


Try leaving the Wii on and switching the TV off then on. I have an old TV and this is the only way I can activate the AUX

However sometimes even this will not work and you have to plug the Wii into a DVD player or Video player then plug that into the Aux to get it to work

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.
avinputsdiagram.gif
  • 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

  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.
    Still can't find it? We have compiled a list of known input selects for many popular brands. Click here to see our list.

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.

Nintendo Wii box light is on but no picture or sound from my tv


sometimes just sometimes tvs are funny, some tv's call it a "input select" others call it a "mode" or simply "input" and some dont have any they just want you to goto channel 2 on the tv and go back one more channel.

ushally all these modes are listed on the remote.

is it the origional remote? or is it a universal remote.

try those things above look over the remote again see if anything resembles any of that and if not

list the make and model of your tv and if your using a universal remote we will be able to figure something out for you.

Can't get my new wii to work


Hello.
Most likely it is not your console. Depending on what type of TV it is there may be many different inputs in the back. My HDTV has 5! It can get confusing. If you have it connected directly to the TV, note which ports the cables are plugged into, then make sure the TV is in the correct output mode. Ex...cables are hooked to Video 1 in, set TV to Video 1 output. Now if you are hooked up through a DVD or VCR player it could be different. If you are hooked up to your VCR and the VCR is hooked up to the TV, the VCR would need to be powered on also. It would be the same for a DVD player. I really hope this helps you. The Wii is very fun!
I wish you much luck. If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to click on my "Ask Me" button.
Thank you.
