Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Zero audio and video

I just got a new HDTV a while back and the first few monthes it worked great with my Wii until i started using the TV in my room and then going into the living room to play a game against my family. After that it started a few times where it wouldn't start up at all, but I was able to get it to work. NOW, its acting like there is zero audio/video output at all. We called Wii tech support and they said they would fix it, but before I send it in I want to know is there is a solution to this without having to send it in. I have tried a new communication cord but that seemed not to work so I need help. I would greatly appreciate it very much. Thanks

It might just be the hard ware within the system that it probably why they are taking it in so i wouldn't really mess with it as it would void the warranty.

Had my playstation 3 hooked up to my old television in the living room, i recently got a new tv for my room so i unhooked it and took it upstairs and plugged it in and it isnt working. no audio or video....


If it works with your Wii and not with you PS3, chances are your audio / video cables were damaged in the move. Try hooking up your PS3 to another TV with the same cables. If you have audio and video on a different TV with the same cables, it may be a problem with your HD settings. If the cables for the Wii aren't HD component cables and the PS3 cables are (or vice versa) this could be causing the problem, as the HD component cables have a different plug in than the normal video / audio settings. If this is the case, search around your TV to find the alternate connections and try those (these will probably require a different channel). If none of this works, I suggest you contact Sony about the problem and perhaps even send in your Playstation for repair. If you need anything else, let me know!

Cannot connect to Netflix via wii console


Netflix was working great on my Wii until I changed the wireless security from WPA2 to WEP. When using WEP, the other web based menu items worked but Netflix did not. I switched back to WPA2 and it started working again.

Screen is compressed both horizional and vertical


Hi Rod,
If you can still see/read what's happening on the screen, go back to the Wii Options screen, select "Wii Settings" on the right, click the Screen option, and make sure "Widescreen settings" match your TV (if in doubt, choose 4:3). Click confirm, then click "TV Resolution" and ensure it is on Standard 480i. With these settings, the Wii should be viewable on almost any TV.

No sound on wii


Hello :

1: Make sure you have the volume on the TV turned up and the audio-video connections plugged into the same-colour plugs. Sound only kicks-in once you are at the Wii menu. If this doesn't work, continue to step 2.

2. Test the Wii with another TV. If you have sound there, then it is possible that the HDTV's sound inputs plugs are damaged. Send your HDTV off for repairs.

3. If the Wii does not work with the other TV, then it is likely that the audio cables are damaged. Order a replacement from Nintendo (instructions are in the Wii user's guide)

good luck .

rate please !

Nintendo Wii works fine on standard tv but not on hdtv.


FOUND THE PROBLEM !!!!! The problem appears to be the Freeview somehow interfering with the Wii signal. When the aeriel lead is removed the Wii works fine, and the audio/visual signal is great. When the aeriel lead is in I have the problems. I hope this solution proves to be of use to anyone else having similar problems.

Wii is dead


1. push the reset button and if that doesn't work unplug all cords and memory cards (including sd) from wii and unplug av from the wii and the outlet in wall. Wait 2-3 min or unplug the wii overnight and The trick i use was to literally smack the power supply on the ground and plug it back in. It seemed to work for a few weeks, until you buy a new power cord Don't call Nintendo unless you've got some money. it'll be $82 bucks.

Can get only grainy black and white color on our new Wii.


If you have HDTV do you have a 5 pin cable?  Nintendo say that the most common reason for tis problem is that HDTV's  need a 5 pin component cable in place of the standard 3 pin cable which is supplied.

Wii console to Philips HDTV Connection not working


In order to use the 480p (HDTV/EDTV) resolution, you MUST be using the Wii Component Video Cable. Any other cable will not display the 480p resolution, you have use the 480i (Standard) instead. You can order the Wii Component Video Cable through Nintendo's Web site. Using that cable, you can select the 480p resolution. Hope this helps.
