I am assuming that you are talking about a Nintendo Wii. When you buy a Wii it comes with standard RCA composite cables that are three colors, Red, White and Yellow. Yellow is the cable that carries the video signal and the red/white carry the stereo audio signal. You would need to connect these cables into the corresponding color inputs on your tv. Plug the yellow ended cable into the yellow jack on your TV and do the same for the red and white cables. After this is done, you will need to switch your tv's input to the input that corresponds to the one you plugged those cables into. Some newer flat panel TVs do not come with RCA composite inputs. If this is your problem, you will need to get some component cables for your Wii. These cables look identical to RCA (composite) cables but come in colors red, green, blue, red and white. In this case the red, green and blue cables carry the video signal and the red and white carry the audio. You can purchase these from just about any store that carries the Wii or online from places such as Amazon.com.
Usually this is either a cable or a mode issue. First make sure that you have the correct cable connections. (Composite video cable to a component video jack is one possible cause of the problem.) Component video cables are not included with the set but will give better results. However, composite video in from the wii's composite video out should give good results.
If you are using HDMI or component video cables, then go into the Wii video menus to select the correct mode for your tv. Check your TV manual and the Wii setup guide for details on the mode (resolution, etc) you should be using.
If the problem persists, try new video cables and make sure that they are fully seated on both sides. Try switching inputs if you have several available.
This is actually really not good don't use a composite with a component input go to the store and buy an HD cord for you're wii if you need help ask the person in the store for a component cable for the wii.
You got one cable which plugs into the back of the Wii, plug the other end into the power bar or power outlet.
You have another cable which plugs into the back of the Wii. The other end of it has three colored cables. Plug the matching cable colors into the back of your TV that says AVI or Component, depending on which cables you have.
Put batteries into the controller.
Turn on the Power and switch the input to AVI or Component.
The cables you received are called "component" when the picture is broken down to its component colors, red, green, and blue.
When compared to "composite" cables (RCA), the yellow is all the components in one, which is the video cable. The other red and white are audio.
Your component should be RGB, Red & White (audios)
What you need to do is buy a composite cable for the Wii, which shouldn't cost that much--usually under $10 bucks. Save the component cables for when you get a new TV since those are the more expensive of the two!
It has to do with the type of input - Video2 and 3 are Component video inputs, requiring a 3- wire component video cable (Red,blue,green for video, red/white below for audio). Video 1 is for analog equipment (Yellow for the video, red and white for the audio). Unless your Wii comes with a component video out cable and jacks (same red blue green), you'll have to use video 1 for the Wii, and use Video 2 for the dvd. You'll need a component video (3-wire) cable for your dvd, which should have the jacks for it. You can use the present cable you're using for the dvd, but you'll have to change the connections on the back of the dvd to component video out, and you'll still need another 2-wire cable to connect the audio out on the dvd to the audio in on Video 2 on the tv.
Here's the manual for your tv - look on page 8 for these connections. the Wii will be an analog connnection, the dvd will be a digital connection.
on your tv, there should be color coded ports that tell you which cords go where but im almost 100% sure that the red and white cords are for sound and the blue and green cables are for hd video hookups.
