Red plug - Audio R

Why won't my wii console power up when I plug it in to a power source?


Ok. Sometimes there is a problem in the power brick. This is the little box on the cable that connects to the wii console. Here's the trick to try to reset it: First, unplug the cable from both the wii and the wall outlet. Leave it unplugged for at least 30 minutes. Then, proceed to plug it back into the wii and then plug it into the power outlet. If the trick doesn't work and your wii still won't power on, you may need a replacement power supply for it. I have added an Amazon link. Hope this helps you out!

Rgb connection stopped working on laptop


Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

How can I connect a WII console to my Champion Plasma CV 142 TV set? Can I connect it with RCA cables?


The 42CVI has both composite and component video in the standard configuration. Either of these should connect to your Wii console. You will get better results if you use component video (3 RCA plugs on each end of the wire for video (Y,Pb,Pr); use a second cable with two RCA plugs on each end for audio.) The Component video is Input-4. The component video cable is usually not provided with the game console. There are 2 composite video inputs on the TV (these use one wire with 3 RCA plugs on each end of the cable for video (yellow) and audio (red and white)).

I hope this helps.

How to hook a Wii to a 42" sharp aquos hd tv?


Easy.

You got one cable which plugs into the back of the Wii, plug the other end into the power bar or power outlet.

You have another cable which plugs into the back of the Wii. The other end of it has three colored cables. Plug the matching cable colors into the back of your TV that says AVI or Component, depending on which cables you have.

Put batteries into the controller.

Turn on the Power and switch the input to AVI or Component.

Do I understant this correctly? You are using a composite video cable (A/V y,r,w) and connecting it with the component video input (and then telling the TV to use the YPbPr source). You need a component video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end - red, green and blue) and an audio cable (2 RCA plugs - red and white) for the Wii. It wasn't included with the Wii but it does have the component video ports. Otherwise you would need a SCART to composite connector to work with the input. Alternatively, you could get an HDMI cable and connect that between the Wii and the TV (depnding on the age of the Wii).

If I've read this correctly, you have the media box and dvd player sharing the SCART input (EXT1).

I hope this helps.

Can i use an over the counter HDMI cable or do i need a "special" nintendo cord?


Hi, there is no true HDMI cable for the Wii but a "Component" cable which is as near to HDMI as possible. The cable has 5 plugs on it (make sure your TV has the same 5 plugs). They are available off of ebay for around £5

Hope this helps

Can the wii be connected with hdmi cable


As was said, there is no HDMI cable for the Wii. An HDMI cable would be a waste on the Wii, considering the Wii can't ouput 5.1 sound, and can't output 1080P (those are the main benefits with an HDMI cable).

The highest qaulity cable for the Wii is a component cable, which will allow you to output the Wii in 480p (progressive scan) vs 480i (integrated scan). All HDTV's have component inputs, so this is a non issue. Component cables actually can output 720p/1080i, but the Wii can only output 480p max.

Here is a link to the cable I am taking about. You should be able to get it from somewhere for the $20 range.

No Sound from TV when using Component Cables


what you do is plug in the HD cables as you previously stated and then place the red and white cords where you would normally put then like when you plug in a dvd player or the place you normally would plug in the red and white cables.
