Re: Can't get my new wii to work
Most likely it is not your console. Depending on what type of TV it is there may be many different inputs in the back. My HDTV has 5! It can get confusing. If you have it connected directly to the TV, note which ports the cables are plugged into, then make sure the TV is in the correct output mode. Ex...cables are hooked to Video 1 in, set TV to Video 1 output. Now if you are hooked up through a DVD or VCR player it could be different. If you are hooked up to your VCR and the VCR is hooked up to the TV, the VCR would need to be powered on also. It would be the same for a DVD player. I really hope this helps you. The Wii is very fun!

Unlike some older game consoles, the Wii does not have an RF output, meaning you don't tune the television to a specific channel to use it. The Wii uses composite video output using three RCA-type plugs. You will need a television that supports these inputs or an RF adapter.
From the Wii, the Audio-Video (AV) cable is Red White and Yellow. Now, those R, W, Y should connect to the R, W, Y inputs of your TV. At times, the inputs to the TV have a Red, Blue, Green input - DO NOT USE those inputs. This is precisely what happened in my case. Now, it is fixed.
Plug the red yellow and green plugs into the corrosponding color plug in your tv in "inputs". It may be in the back. Yellow is the video plug, red is the audio plug, and white is the mono plug. Plug the end of that into the Wii console. Finally, you mount the sensor bar on the top or below your tv. It has adheasive to make it stick. Center it in the middle of your tv. Plug it in and insert the Wii Sports disk. Change to the correct inputs for video games, I think Composite. That's all there is to it. Turn it on. A Wii scren should appear. Next you have to sync the remotes. The one that came with the game is done for you. With additional remotes you have to open the battery compartment on the remote and open the compartment on the Wii console. You have to press the red sync button at the same time on both items. Turn the remote on. The second remote should now work. Have fun with you Wii.
Try plugging it into another scart socket, this sometimes happens when a tv does not support 60hz. the result is a screen that has no colour. You could try just plugging it onto the seperate av inputs. Most tv's these days have one scart that will work ok and in colour.
When you turn the Wii on, and the light goes from red or orange to green, press A a few times (this would be to get through the warning/safety screen) then wait a minute. Then when you wave your remote about, you will feel it vibrating as it goes over the channel icons on the wii menu screen. Plus a blue light will be lit at the bottom of the remote to denote player 1.
If all of this happens, it is just a lead or TV input issue. If these things do NOT happen, the Wii is broke and needs fixing by Nintendo!
Also, check the refresh rate on your television an make set to be compatible. That may also cause a picture not to show up.

Have problem with my 2-month old Wii. Please see whether you can offer any suggestions. My problem is:
Red light comes on no problem when power is connected, but when pushing the power button nothing happens - no green light? is this a sync problem? this happened yesterday and i unplugged everything and when reconnected it worked, but not today? have just installed a new tv, could there be interference from the new remote?
