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.

How do you hook up your wii on the tv so you can get netflix and tv channels


You hook the wii up as normal. The wii needs to be able to connect to the internet. On bootup go to the wii shop, channels and download Netflix or Hulu Plus. (Sign up for those services seperately)

How to connect a wii to my tv


Hello,

Please take your AV Cord and hook it up to your wii and your tv. There are 3 colors. Red/White/Yellow


Once hooked up, take your remote and switch the Video Input on your tv. (look for the input button)

Make sure the Wii is powered on and you should see it pop up on the screen.

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:

TV went to black and white when hooking up the wii


You probably don't have something hooked up right or connected all the way. If you are using component video cables, make sure that all of the different plugs are plugged into the matching socket on your TV. Also, make sure you have your TV on the right channel (3 or 4) if that's how you have it setup.
Otherwise, you will want to look at the input settings on your TV and make sure you are receiving the correct input, and if you have your Wii plugged into a VCR instead of directly to your TV, try hooking it up directly to see if it works.
If that doesn't work, try using a different TV - especially if it's a TV you know works in color with a Wii. If it is still in black and white, you might need to take it back to the store and exchange it for a new one.
