My tv died so I hooked up an old one. the TV has only a scart input so I used a scart multiway box which I have used before. The problem is this new (old TV)gives me sound but no picture unless I have the DVD player on as well and wiggle the scart so that the connection isn't very good. I then get video but it scrolls and loses colour. If I plug the Wii straight into the TV scart input I get nothing at all, just snow.

The quickest thing you can try is to connect it to another TV and see if it works.
There are various methods for connecting the Wii to the TV. In the box you should have a component video lead with red, white & yellow connectors. These can be connected directly to the corresponding inputs on the TV or you can connect them to the SCART adaptor and then connect that to a SCART input on the TV. Try using the red, white & yellow leads directly if possible, just in case the scart converter is faulty. If you have more than one set of RWY connectors on your TV then make sure you are using the correct set (you might connect the yellow video to one set and accidentally connect the red & white audio to another set). If you are using the SCART input then try swapping to another input if possible.
Make sure the all the connections are fully pushed into the Wii and the TV.
if its chipped you can get a program that switches the region from NTSC to PAL, the machine is more than likely in NTSC mode
however if its not chipped it could be the scart is faulty, try a different scart lead. if its still the same try putting the scart into a different input (scart) on the tv itself. some tv's dont support 50/60hz properly and will play in b&w in those situations.
Its not actually possible to connect it to your tv if it doesnt have a rca or a scart socket. if you have the old cables for a nintendo 64 they might work on it but otherwise you will need a new tv or medium to connect it through. If you did manage to connect it then you wouldnt need to play it on AV as because it was going through the aerial it would just appear on one of the channels.
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.
Are you using the same SCART socket that you use for your other
consoles or a different one? My SCART3 input on my Panasonic telly has
two different modes - one which displays in colour, and one which
displays in a sort of grainy black n' white. There is a purpose to it
but I can't remember what it is. :-)
Anyway, you switch between the two by pushing the AV button and then
hitting the colour button which corresponds to SCART3 a few times 'til
you reach the correct setting.
It probably isn't that, but... y'know. Sanity check.
Tune your tele and check you've got it on the right PAL/NTSC setting.
i have my picture going through the hdmi and the sound going through the scart. plug the scart into the back of the ps3. then the white and red wire are into my tecnics sound system and it works perfectly you just need to set it up in the sound options in your ps3. which is very easy. just select scart in the sound options. hope this helps you.
