Some newer TVs do not have the traditional "yellow" video input, known as an "AV" connection. Even without that input, you should be able to use the standard three-color Wii AV Cable that came with the system.
What to Do:
Look for "component" inputs on your TV. These connections have a row of five differently-colored inputs (green, blue, and red for video, white and red for audio). If you have more than one set of component inputs, it's the first set that generally works with standard AV cables. Look for a set that has a green input with yellow around it, or the word "video" just above or below it.
Plug the yellow end of the Wii A/V cable into this green "Y" input. Plug the white end into the audio "L" and the red into the audio "R." Leave the blue and second red holes open.
Turn on your Wii console and set your television to the input select being used.
If you are seeing the image from the Wii in black and white, try the following to get the image in color:
Cycle through your television's input channels (usually with the "Input Select" or "Source" button on your TV's remote control) to find the input select that has the image in color.
If you're only finding the image in black and white, you may need to switch the setting of the input select from a component signal to a standard AV signal. This can be done by:
An on screen menu option. This is often accessed by using the "Menu" button on the remote.
A button on the remote that switches between the standard and component signals. These can be labeled such things as "AV" or "Video."
Its a old set but hookup should from a DVD player be to the rear audio and video inputs---note color of jacks on player--you will need for that old set composite--yellow(video and color), red and white for sound.
If the player does not have them (composite) you have a real problem.
Once connected use the input button on the front of the set to change to that input that you hooked the player up to (video 1 or 2 etc.)
While you are in the HD input look in the TV's menu, I think it is in video settings for a setting for RGB or Y, Pr, Pb. If it is set to RGB you will get that green picture. If you are not in the HD input that setting will not show up in the menu.
I presume you are using a S-video input from maybe a computer source.
If it is an S-video source then you should try a different cable of better quality. Also check that the TV is set for the correct type of input.
If you plug in the Video inserts the way they illustrate it, you get black and white with sound. If you are using RCA cables plug the yellow cable on CVBS and the white and red cables on the Video-L and Video-R.
if you're hooking your VCR via analog video input of your TV then check that the yellow colored video wire goes to yout TV video input, will also be colored yellow inside the terminal. The white and red color inputs are for audio. Likewise the output of your VCD will have the same colord code Yellow for video, red/white for audio (stereo). After setting this up, select your TV function to video in, be sure to check your video input channel as well if you're having more than one video input. Video 1 or 2 or 3. Make sure your VCR is powered up when you start to setup your TV function select.
if you're hooking your VCR to your TV via RF signal (over your TV tuner) You need to scan the right frequency to get it tuned to your TV channel. Cabling willbe via RF antenna input of your TV and RF antenna out of your VCR.
If the source to the PIP input is a color signal then the PIP display will be color. PIP sets have two video sources one goes to the main screen while the other goes to the PIP. it all depends on what the format of the signal is being sent to each input. This is quite normal.
