Question about Televison & Video
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.

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."
