Whenever I plug my Nintendo Wii into my TV, I put the channel on aux and I get sound but no video...
I recently took my T.V. To my church for a lock-in. On the way there I carried it on my lap, face down. Did this somehow cause my yellow video input to be pushed in farther than normal?
Or did something else go wrong?

Usually it depends on how you connected to the TV/satellite box- for instance, I have mine set on channel AUX 1 since I have connected my Wii to the TV using the component cables (the red yellow and white cables) to the port AUX 1. If you've hooked it to the Dish box, then it would be whichever accessory you connected is the channel to select in the dish system, but on the channel that your dish is hooked up (it's situational!)
The best solution would be to see if your TV has and aux out for sound. It might also be called audio out. I would look like a red and white jack next to each other by themselves. Then you would take and audio cable and connect the audio out from your TV to the AUX in on the back of your Sony unit. Then select the AUX input selection on your Sony unit to hear the sound.
If you don't have an audio out on your TV then you can plug the red and white cables that go from your Wii console into the AUX input on your Sony unit. The only down side to this is you will ONLY have surround sound and no sound on your TV. Also you will have to pull your Wii cord apart a little bit to reach wherever you will need to plug them.
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.
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 needs to be set to channel 3 or you need to change the input on the tv if you are using the rca jacks on the tv. The other way to hook it up is if you have an rf modulator. You can get the at walmart or radio shack for 20.00 dollars.
I had the same problem on a 32" rca crt. It worked fine, power was cut during electrical work and when it came back, "unusable signal." I went into the menu, then channel, then video input source. had to change it to the correct input "s-video in my case" Then it worked. GOOD LUCK!
