There is only two things i can think that can cause this. The first is that you have connected the Red, White, And Yellow. to the composite inputs (green, blue, and red) which will not work and will give that message. The second is that if the wii was working before and just stated showing this message is that it took an update (though a disk from another country) (can happen if this wii has a mod) and will turn the wii into like a canadian wii or japanse wii or something like that. I hope this helps you out.
Thanks
Steven.

When we turn to the tv to "av" we usually get signal for WII, but now it says "no signal"


Make sure your video connections are correct and make sure any external video selectors are set to the correct input. If the wii is connected directly to the AV input in the TV then check your resolution settings on the TV if possible. Try a known good wii audio/video cable to see if it has gone bad. If it still doesn't work after that then the audio video port on the back of the wii may have gone bad or the wii motherboard may have gone bad.

Channel display has moved to bottom of tv


No problem! Your Wii changed aspect and settings, like your computer adapts to 'unknown" monitor. Just unplug Wii, reset your TV set and you should be alright. Try to use identical signal cables for connecting "cable" and Wii. hope, you are not using RF connector to watch you cable! You will not be able to watch in HD! May be that's your only issue? connect both: box and Wii via 'component" or HDMI inputs. I can't account for Wii, I only repair those, not playing. But, as I recall, it has only "component" or "composite" outputs. Your "box" might have different ones. refer to your owners manuals, just in case!
good luck,
Alex.

My Wii console will turn on, but no signal is received at the TV. The console powers up, you can load and eject discs into it but nothing comes up on the TV. I tried switching TV's and it still didn't...


If you switched tvs and no help than that tells you that the cable that hooks the wii to the tv is probably bad try a new component video or rca cable whichever you are using

Plug wii in and turn on and get nothing. the tv


If it isn't turning on the power cable probably needs to be reset. Unplug the power cable from your Wii and the wall and let it rest for 10-15 minutes. It sounds silly, but try it. Nintendo built in a reset mechanism for power adapter failures.

Installed a Wii to YPbPr1 port. display is B&W, no color. How do I get the display in color?


Unless the Wii is sending the video signal in component form, you have a case where the signals are not compatible. The Wii is sending "composite" and the TV is expecting component. With the composite signal the Y input, the result will be a B&W picture. Either set the Wii to send component or connect it to the composite input on the TV.

Friends Nintendo Wii went off - screen turned black after previously working ok. Took our Wii and plugged it into their tv and wiring. Our Wii now wont work. When Wii is turned on screen changes from no...


  1. This happens if the wires are hooked up wrong(Video and Audio reversed)
  2. The tv is on the wrong channel
  3. The tv signal settings have been changed
  4. The signal settings on the wii have been changed
First check that all wires and connectors on the wii and tv are properly and snugly connected
and check the tv channel.
Then check the settings in both.

Wii Console signal


you should make sure that the cords are plugged in correctly in both the wii and the tv. if not, you should try different cords and a different tv.
