Many large HDTV's will have alternately colored slots to enable 5 connector HD cables. You can plug the Red White and Yellow cords into non-matching ports (green, black, etc) until you have color picture and stereo sound. This will not damage your TV or Wii. You can also buy cables for your Wii that will match the connectors on the back of your television, as well as give your Wii higher resolution capabilities. Which you can purchase at any electronics store.

Connect a Wii to VCR


Hello
Take the Wii's audio/video cable and the power cord and hook them up in the back of the Wii.
Take the Wii's audio/video cable and plug it into the 'audio-in and video-in sockets on your VCR.Make sure you match the cable colors with the input colors.i.e white goes with white,yellow with yellow and red with red.
Take the RCA cable which looks like the picture below,

and plug one end of this audio/video cable into the 'audio out' and 'video out' ports on the VCR.Make sure the cable and ports colors match.
Now take the other end of the RCA cable and plug into the 'audio in' and 'video in' ports on your TV.Again make sure you match the color connections.

Hope it helps.

I dont know if it is my wii but my tv is black and white/grey and white what can i do to repair it?


If your TV is only black and white while playing on the Wii, this is indicative of a problem with either the A/V cable or the A/V ports on your television.
If you have a friend who owns a Wii, try using their cable, or change the A/V jacks to a different set of ports on your television.
NOTE: The A/V jacks are the red, white, and yellow plugs that plugs into your Wii on one end and into your TV on the other. If, for example, these jacks are under VIDEO1 on your TV and you switch the viewing mode to VIDEO1 to play Wii, then try moving them to a set of A/V plugs under VIDEO2. If this is an older TV, there may be only one set of plugs on the TV itself. Try the console on a different TV. It may be time to get a new television. This often happens on older TV's.

I took my wii to someones house and i dont know how to hook it up to their tv and where to plug the cords in and what cord goes where. should there be a spot for all of the cords to be plugged in or will...


all of the connections no matter if it is the component or the rca will go in a proper hole.

RCA is the three wire. Yellow, Red and White.
Component is 5 wire. Red, white (audio) and Green, Red Blue for video.

if there are wires left over then i'm guessing you are trying to put the Component in their RCA.

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!

I don't know howto match the colors to tv with my Wii cords.


the red and white cords on the wii go with the red and white in the tv these are your audio cords. then the yellow from the wii cord to the yellow on the tv this is video. make sure that if you have multiple video slots that you plug them in for the same channel.

Try to hook up playstation or Wii to the ybp ports at back of tv and can only get picture in black and white


you cannot use the ybp The wii and playstation only have one video cord (yellow) and 2 audio cords (red & white)
You can only hook up these wires to the same on tv. If you don't have this option, I suggest using a vcr or some type of converter

How to hook up wii to surround sound


You need to connect your amplifier to your TV, (Video Out of Amp to video In of TV), then select the input where you connected your WII in amp.
Or you could just connect the yellow plug to the TV directly, and the white and red plug to your amplifier.
A note thou, Red and White will not give "True" surround sound as it has only 2 channels, you need to connect a digital input to the amp to get true surround.

Let me know what happens
