Connecting a wii to a RCA Scenium

Seems like input ports 1, 2 & 3 (red, yellow, white) will not work to hook up the nintendo wii to the tv set. The cables are good, because they are hooked to another set at the moment and 8 fifteen year olds are playing super mario smash brothers on a tiny set. The input port 4 works and the x box 360 is plugged into it and working fine. Does the tv have some sort of fuse which makes the first three ports function? Are we able to repair it?

Sorry but I have to ask, are you sure the cables were plugged in correctly on the bigger set? Try using your tv's input button to scroll through the different inputs until you come to the one where the Wii is plugged in. You can check which one by looking where you plug the cables in. i.e. line 1, line 2, component 1, etc. Hope this helps.

Can not hook the TV up to the Wii, it won't come in, I have a new RCA TV . The back of it has a orange color pug in not a yellow and I pug it in and I also don't know what setting to put it on


A newer TV may mean that your wii is not setup to use the proper resolution(HDTV). Are there 1, 3 or 5 RCA ports on the back of your tv?
Some tv's have more than 1 set of RCA ports..are there no ports on the side of your tv? If so, try those instead.
If you have 5 ports only, you may need to use the green one for the yellow cable. This might result in a black & white image, and will be used purely to change your wii settings to use a higher resolution.

Connect a Wii to VCR


Hello
Take the Wii's audio/video cable and the power cord and hook them up in the back of the Wii.
Take the Wii's audio/video cable and plug it into the 'audio-in and video-in sockets on your VCR.Make sure you match the cable colors with the input colors.i.e white goes with white,yellow with yellow and red with red.
Take the RCA cable which looks like the picture below,

and plug one end of this audio/video cable into the 'audio out' and 'video out' ports on the VCR.Make sure the cable and ports colors match.
Now take the other end of the RCA cable and plug into the 'audio in' and 'video in' ports on your TV.Again make sure you match the color connections.

Hope it helps.

Where do I hook up the red, yellow, and white chords to the tv for my wii console to work?


The yellow is video, and the red and white are for audio. All of the ports on your TV are labeled in some fashion or another. Start with the video. You're looking for an "in" port. It will say something like "Video In" or "RCA In" or "Component In". It doesn't really matter how it's labeled, just look for a yellow port marked "in".

You'll then do the same for your audio. Find a red and white port that are right next to each other, and labeled "in". Once they're all plugged into the "in" ports, you'll have to switch your TV to the correct input. It should be something along the lines of "AUX 1" or "RCA 1" or "Video 1", something of that nature. The way you'll know for sure is to make sure your yellow plug is in the yellow "in" port, ensure your Wii is turned on, then keep switching your TV's inputs until you see your Wii's 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!

We need to connect a wii and a dvd player up to our 32 in Emerson? Unsure of which jacks to use?


First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv


Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.


Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.


To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.


When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"


When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."

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.

Wii menu and all sports in black and white; how do we get color?


You are probably plugged into the wrong RCA slot for your Wii's configuration. If your TV is an HDTV you need to either go to your Wii's settings and change the TV settings to HD or remove the Wii RCA (Red/Yellow/White) from the HD slot and put them in the standard input RCA slot. Red/Yellow/White insted of Red/Green/White.

My wii connection is black and white


You are connecting it into the wrong input. The Wii comes with a RCA cables that should go into the Video (composite) input that has yellow, red, and white. The component input will not work with the RCA cable input. Plug your Wii into Video1 and you should get the right colors. There should be another HDMI on the side of your TV, there are inputs located both on the back and side of the TV for your convience.
