Make sure the colors line up.
Red-Red
Green-Green
Blue-blue

If the tv has a second componant input then test it in that input.
What model tv are you pluging it into?
Did the wii work on the old cable?

Channel display has moved to bottom of tv


No problem! Your Wii changed aspect and settings, like your computer adapts to 'unknown" monitor. Just unplug Wii, reset your TV set and you should be alright. Try to use identical signal cables for connecting "cable" and Wii. hope, you are not using RF connector to watch you cable! You will not be able to watch in HD! May be that's your only issue? connect both: box and Wii via 'component" or HDMI inputs. I can't account for Wii, I only repair those, not playing. But, as I recall, it has only "component" or "composite" outputs. Your "box" might have different ones. refer to your owners manuals, just in case!
good luck,
Alex.

Bought a Wii and using the standard cables it played great on a new 50' Panasonic Plasma as well as on our 2 year old 32' VIZIO LCD. Just upgraded to a 46' Sony LCD (W series) and the Wii looks terrible...


The Wii can display on a HDTV, but keep in mind the output is only 480p. It is not true high definition, and it will only display this using a component video cable. There shouldn't be a difference with LCD and plasma.

You will also need to go to the display settings to force the Wii to display in 480p.

Try a different input (safe to assume your Sony has multiple?) and see if it is that specific input. Also, try a different device like a DVD player or VCR and see if you get the same result.

Good luck.

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.

Some Virtual Console games don't work!


When using component video cables and a HDTV: Go into the Wii's system settings, under Screen, change TV Resolution to HDTV (480p) instead of Standard TV (480i) and change to Widescreen (16:9) under Widescreen Settings.

This worked for me, good luck!

No color


Try to change the settings on your Wii to play in 480i or 1080p witchever your tv is.
It sounds like a easy system configuration adjustment. Check both your Tv settings and if your using HD on the Wii try using just R/g/b (red,green,blue) wires. I would belive that the settings on your wii or your tv arent correct, just play around with these settings with the wii hooked up and on.
GOOD LUCK let me know if their isnt anything more I can do. MORE DETAIL CAN HELP YOU OUT because their might be 1 small thing you didn't do and can cause this.

Yellow!


Are you using the component cable of the composite cable the console came with?

If you are using the component cable then one of the three cable is loose on your TV or there is a break in one of your cables, most likely the blue one.

If you are using the composite cable then there could be a problem with that input on your TV, have you tried a different input? Otherwise there could be something wrong with your Wii. The best thing to do would be to try your Wii out on someone else's TV, and even better with their cable instead of yours.

Good Luck!

Problem displaying nintendo wii graphics


After more checking around I found out this is not an uncommon problem with the wii. Apparently there is a design flaw that causes the graphics card to overheat, which creates various types of distortion. It may have something to do with using wiiconnect24. I am sending my wii back to nintendo for repairs.

New system - no color on screen


the cable colors have to match the tv ones if you have different colors on cables then look for the label on the cables saying video or audio (red)=audio (white)=other audio (yellow)=video EXAMPLE if the cable colors are different than the tv then if the label on the cables say video and the color is blue etc. then you have to put it on the yellow putin on the tv no matter the color. If it dosent work then try holding the cables in many angles try pulling them or anything unlit they work get something to hold them up if that dosent work then i think you should buy new cables.
