Your LCD TV should have one of the following types of inputs:

  1. Composite. This is usually a yellow jack, along with red and white jacks for audio.
    If your TV has these, which it should, then the cable that comes with the Wii will plug directly into these jacks. Plug the yellow to the yellow jack, the red to the red jack, and the white to the white jack.
  2. S-Video. This is a flat black jack. There are four little holes, and one "flat" rectagular hole. There should also be a red and white jack that go along with this for audio.
    In order to connect to this input, you will need to purchase an S-Video output cable for the Wii. Most stores that sell Wiis will sell a third-party cable for this.
    This connection will give you a significantly better picture than Composite.
    S-Video does not carry audio, so you still need to plug the red plug into the red jack and the white plug into the white jack or you'll get only video and no audio!
  3. Component video. This is a triplet of Red, Green and Blue jacks. There is usually a set of red and white jacks along with them for audio again.
    This connection will give you the best picture, and you can set your Wii to EDTV (Progressive) mode.
    To connect to this input, you will need to get the Wii Component Video cable. Most stores that sell Wiis will either sell the official Nintendo one, or a third-party cable.
    Connect the red plug to the red jack, the green plug to the green jack, and the blue plug to the blue jack. Also connect the red audio plug to the red audio jack and the white audio plug to the white audio jack.
    Be careful not to get the red audio plug confused with the red video plug!
    If you see a picture, but the colors are wrong, then you either swapped the red and blue, or you connected the red audio plug instead of the red video plug.

We are trying to hook up our wii console how do you get it to work. TV says invaild scan freq.


You have to hook it up to a standard Yellow/Red/White RCA jack. If it doesn't work on one, try another. Make sure you're on the proper input you hooked it up to on the T.V. If this doesn't work, try hooking it up to a different T.V. to rule out the Wii as the problem. Try hooking up a DVD player to the same RCA jack as the Wii was on the Hitachi. After all of these troubleshooting methods, you should be able to get your Wii properly hooked up.

How do I hook up my wii to my samsung 32" lcd tv


If your Samsung 32" LCD TV does not have a regular composite video AV input, you will need a high definition component cable. You can find one pretty cheap at the following website:
