Connecting Wii through Component cables and Phillips switcher

I am trying to connect a Wii and DVD through a Phillips switcher using Component cables. The Wii works if directly connected with Wii components cables. The DVD works both directly through cable and through switcher and cable. I have 16 ft long cables from switcher to TV (mounted on wall). Would the length of cable make a difference? Or perhaps the switcher?

Any suggestions?

Thanks

    When you say the Wii doesn't work..does it not work at all, or are you just missing the sound?

I just did some more checking...

When you have the Wii connected to the AV Switch, try turning on the DVD player too, but have the switch set to show the Wii on the TV. It is odd, but that has worked for me.

No visual for Nintendo Wii, replaced cables, audio fine.


Did you hit the input button on your TV remove to select the input where the Wii is connected? If you TV allows for Component cables try getting a set of those. It's a possibility the TV connection has gone bad. Try connecting it on another tv. or some tv's have Audio connections in the front/Side/back.

Conecting Wii to a Phillips lcd tv. rwy cords. but the picture is in black & white ?? i have sound. tried different connections eg: red to green conections & the only one that works is still black...


it sounds like you may be trying to plug a standard composit video cable (yellow) into a component video input (red, green, and blue)
these are actually two different connections. Most LCD tv's will have both options (sometimes there in weird different spots on the tv tho) if you don't have a standard RGB (red, white, and yellow composite video input) then you may need to purchase a component cable either at a local store or you can get one for $5 on Ebay
hope it helps!
~good luck!

My wii console has sound but not visual checked all connections all ok it is connected by component cable please advise


Try to connect your Wii to another component input on the same TV, or to another TV. If the video works in one of those cases, then there is a problem with the TV. If not, your cable is likely broken. Try using a new component cable. If all this fails then there is a serious issue with your console that probably cannot be repaired at home.

No picture are sound,have tried new leads but nothing


need a bit more info. Do you have TV set to the correct input that you have the Wii plugged into. What type of AV plug are you using is it standard yellow, white and red plugs or are you connecting with component cables that have extra green, blue and red cables as well as the standard ones. You need tv set to component input if using the component cables.

We have sound but no picture on our Wii


Connect a DVD player using red white and yellow to the TV if you get picture and sound, then reconnect the wii red, white, and yellow to the same input.

If only the wii does not show video you will need new red white, and yellow cables. I would try a friends red, white, and yellow cables first even to their TV where their wii is already working.

If new cables are not working you will need to contact Nintendo as there is an issue with your wii. You can't change the wii video to progressive without a component kit, and since you have yellow you obviously don't have a component cable for the wii.

Nintendo Wii AV Cables not work


It could be a problem inside the Wii where it only outputs a signal through HD. Have you tried a different TV using the original cables? If the problem persists I would recommend calling Nintendo.
