I also have this same problem except it did not involve the pulling of any plugs. I have a box that allows Video One to be used for gameplay and for dvd mode.  All that is necessary is the pressing of a button for whichever option I want to use.  Problem is, video no longer works on my Wii during game-mode! I know it isn't a cable problem-- I've switched cables with a friend and nothing helps.  I tried hard-wiring the Wii to the television instead of the box and same problem.  In fact, I shipped the Wii off for some fixing and it came back yesterday, same problem. I'm very disappointed, but more importantly very upset! I have not been able to play my Wii in three weeks and it is a bit ridiculous! If anyone figures this out, please get back to me.

You can go to gamestop and buy another chord for about 15 to 35 dollars depends on the brand too cheap or expensive.

you probably pulled out the chord and probably ripped inside or ripped away from the connection.

Hook up to the Wii


Alright so first of all, you should have gotten a cord with a big, grey power brick attached to it. Plug the end in that goes in a outlet, and the other end should hook up to one of the outlets on your Wii console. Then, there should be a cord with three branches. They should be colored red, orange/yellow, and white. On the back/front or on the cable box for your TV there should be plug-ins that are colored either red, white, green, blue, or orange/yellow. The specifications should be written under the outlets (visual, audio, etc...). Plug the white and red part of the cord in to the "audio" outlet (on your tv). The other cord (yellow/orange) should plug in to the outlet that is labeled "video" or "visual" or "screen" or something along the lines of that. The next step is pretty simple. Your Wii (should have) came with a sensor bar. It is thin, long, and black and has a very long, very thin cord attached to it. Plug one side of the cord into your Wii console, and the actual sensor bar goes on top of your TV. There are small, sticky rectangles that help with the sensor bar sticking to your TV. After you've done all that, your Wii is ready to go! Just push the power button and your ready to start playing!

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,

1_22_2012_6_55_20_pm.jpg
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.

How do you connect wii to a sony surround sound receiver


The best solution would be to see if your TV has and aux out for sound. It might also be called audio out. I would look like a red and white jack next to each other by themselves. Then you would take and audio cable and connect the audio out from your TV to the AUX in on the back of your Sony unit. Then select the AUX input selection on your Sony unit to hear the sound.

If you don't have an audio out on your TV then you can plug the red and white cables that go from your Wii console into the AUX input on your Sony unit. The only down side to this is you will ONLY have surround sound and no sound on your TV. Also you will have to pull your Wii cord apart a little bit to reach wherever you will need to plug them.

Please thank me if this helped.

I can't figure out how to hook up a wii to a home theater system


On the back of your AVR (audio video receiver) where you connect a DVD, VCR or any other component. Example if there are open component jacks where you would connect a VCR just plug in the Yellow, Red and White cables. Turn your AVR to the source you connected to and turn on the TV. It should then play thru the speakers and be seen on the TV. Treat it just like a DVD player or any input source.

Can hook up my wii to this tv


The AV Multi Out plug that is included with the Wii will allow you to connect the console to most televisions or video cassette recorders (VCR). First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have colored holes label "Input". Though most TVs have them, almost all VCRs do as well.
avinputsdiagram.gif
  • Audio/Video (AV) inputs are located on the front or back of the TV or VCR.
  • They are smooth silver posts with the inside showing a color, usually red, white and yellow.
  • Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN.
  • The image on the left features stereo audio inputs. Some televisions have only one audio input. Click here for help setting up a mono audio connection.
  • Do NOT connect your system to anything marked OUT.
Where do you have these inputs?
Additional Options:



Connecting to a Television
  1. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console. setuptvav.gif


  2. Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the TV. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

    Yellow = Video Input
    White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
    Red = Audio Input Right

  3. Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, you must find the Input Select for your TV to view the game (it is likely not going to be seen on Channel 3 or 4). Typically this is found by pressing the TV/Video button on the Television's front panel or remote control. If you have more than one input channel, keep pressing TV/Video until you see the display from the Wii.
    If you do not have a TV/Video button, then the input could be labeled something different. Some other common input selects to look for on the TV or remote are: Input, Input Select, EXT, AUX, or a channel such as 00 or 99.
    Still can't find it? We have compiled a list of known input selects for many popular brands. Click here to see our list.

Connecting to a VCR, DVD-R, Cable Box, etc.
    In order to connect a video game system through a device such as a VCR, DVR, cable or satelite box, it must have Video and Audio "inputs." While most VCRs and VCR/DVD combos have these inputs, other devices typically have "Outputs" which will not work for playing your Wii console. Please verify the device you are attempting to use has these holes.
    While many cable/satelite boxes and DVRs may have "inputs," accessing them can be difficult. Please consult the instruction manual for the device you are connecting to, for more information.
  1. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console. setupvcrav.gif


  2. Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the VCR. Make sure you are plugging the connectors into the holes labeled"Input" or "In". Holes labeled"Output" or "Out" will not work. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

    Yellow = Video Input
    White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
    Red = Audio Input Right
    Interested in playing your games in Dolby Pro Logic II (simulated surround sound)? Click here setup information.

  3. Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, put your TV on the channel you use to watch movies (usually channel 3 or 4). Put in a video tape and play the movie. When you see the movie playing, press stop (do not power off the VCR!) and proceed to the next step.

  4. You will now need to find the Input Select for your VCR. This is usually a button on the original remote control that is labeled Input Select, AUX, Input, EXT, Line In, or a high or low channel. For more information on locating your input select, click here.

No picture on tv when wii is swiched on


Please check the back of the Wii for loose or disconnected cords. Also check the back of the television for loose or disconnected cables. Also if you use an adapter and the Wii runs through a different source before the television such as a VCR, or DVD Player, Check those to. Hope this helped! Have a great day!
