Hey audstaples,

If you're sure that your Nintendo Wii is correctly connected, you may only need to change the input station on your TV. While some TV's will only require that it be on channel 3 or 4, many others are only able to recognize game consoles when set an external input station. Usually these stations can be found be pressing the "Input" button on the TV's remote control or by accessing the TV's main video setup menu, depending on the model that you own.

Should changing the input not resolve the problem, you may wish to double-check your connections using the setup troubleshooting guide provided by Nintendo through the following link:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

I accidentally set my wii to HDTV settings and I need to reset it back to normal tv but my screen is so messed up I cant see options or anything


You can reset your Nintendo Wii video settings to use Composite (or RCA - Yellow, Red and White) cables by doing the following:

1. Make sure the Nintendo Wii is powered off and a red light is showing.

2. With the power off, unplug the video cables from the back of the Nintendo Wii, leave them plugged into your TV (these should be the RCA/Composite cables)

3. Press the Power button on the front of Nintendo Wii. Make sure the cables are still unplugged.

4. Keep the Nintendo Wii powered on and plug your cables back into it with it still running.

5. If all went well, the picture should appear normally now.

6. Once the picture has reappeared, you should go into the Nintendo Wii Menu (the Wii button in the bottom left hand corner) and change the display back to 480i to make the changes permanent.

Tip

Reset your Wii Video Settings to the Default


One annoying thing about the Nintendo Wii is that there is no way to reset the video settings once you have changed them in the Nintendo Wii System Menu.

It will not detect which cables you are trying to use and just tries to use the last settings that you set it to.

So, if you have changed your Nintendo Wii from using the regular cables that came with the system to using component cables, then switch back to a TV using regular RCA cables (these are the yellow, red and white cables) then you need to reset the settings on your Nintendo Wii to the default video settings.

You can reset your Nintendo Wii video settings to use Composite (or RCA - Yellow, Red and White) cables by doing the following:

1. Make sure the Nintendo Wii is powered off and a red light is showing.

2. With the power off, unplug the video cables from the back of the Nintendo Wii, leave them plugged into your TV (these should be the RCA/Composite cables)

3. Press the Power button on the front of Nintendo Wii. Make sure the cables are still unplugged.

4. Keep the Nintendo Wii powered on and plug your cables back into it with it still running.

5. If all went well, the picture should appear normally now.

6. Once the picture has reappeared, you should go into the Nintendo Wii Menu (the Wii button in the bottom left hand corner) and change the display back to 480i to make the changes permanent.

I hope this tip helps!

My Wii doesn't come on


Hi there, you could try the following:
  1. Try unplugging Wii from the power for a full 2 minutes, plug back in and power up and test (This resets the Power Adapter).
  2. If this does not resolve it then it may need to be repaired so contact Nintendo here.
Please see here for for information on Power issues with the Wii.
Cheers

Power but no picture or sound


Did you plug in the cables in the TV for the Wii? Check if you did that or if you do, try changing the different TV setting.
