Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

My wii turns on, but nothing displays.

I turn on my wii, but all that appears is a blank screen, and I am unable to turn off the wii unless I press the button down. The wii button then turns red.

I'm sure that the wii is on, it's just that nothing is displaying, and the sound isn't working.

I've tried it with all three of my TVs in my house, but the same problem occurs.

I'm wondering if anyone has any idea how this can be fixed? I wanna play Zelda =/

Check that your video cables are plugged in correctly along with the sensor bar.

Beyond that, you should use Nintendo's troubleshooting steps.

Unfortunately it sounds like your Wii may need service. The troubleshooting steps will guide you through.

Display problems while playing Virtual Console games


If you are experiencing display issues (dim, blank or half-blank screen, ghosted image, etc.) with a Virtual Console game while using the Component Video Cable, please read the following:
Some Virtual Console games default to displaying 240 lines of video. Some HD TV's are unable to display a signal with only 240 lines. Try the steps below to set the Wii to output 480 lines of video, which may solve the problem:
  1. While on the Wii Channel Menu (main screen of the Wii), connect a Nunchuk to Wii Remote.
  2. Select the Virtual Console game from the Wii menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
  3. When the game starts, press the Home button on the Wii Remote. (In many games, the music can be heard when the game starts.)
  4. Select "Operations Manual" from the Home menu.
  5. Press the Z + A + 2 Button simultaneously (the Z Button is on the Nunchuk). A sound will be heard if the button combination has been entered correctly.
  6. Close the Home menu. The game should now display correctly. Note: You will not have to do this the next time you play, as the Wii console will remember these settings.
If the Virtual Console game is still not displaying properly, but all other games work fine, please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

Have sound but no picture


Hi

First thing to go is try a different television and a different video cable if still no picture is displayed on television (screen is blank) You seem to have a problem with the video output from your nintendo wii.


NO PICTURE
1 Turn your television to the correct video input channel. For many televisions, you can press the "Input" button until you see the Wii start up screen.
2 Ensure the power cord is securely plugged into the DC jack on the Wii and the opposite end is plugged into a working electrical outlet. Press the "Power" button on the Wii and wait for the indicator light to turn blue.
3 Secure all of the Wii component cables to the "Video In" jacks on the television. In addition, make sure the opposite end of the wire is fully plugged into the Wii.

First check your cable connection.
Eject the disk, if you have inside.
Unplug the console at the back
Wait 10 minutes
Plug it back in
Turn it on from the remote
Press reset if it does not show up
Hold the power button to shut it off
