you can do it multiple ways. like putting the cords into the dvd then putting the dvd cords into the tv, or put it into the tv, or hook it up to satilitte and hooking up to the tv. your choice.

SOURCE: polaroid tv Wii connection

Your LCD TV should have one of the following types of inputs:

  1. Composite. This is usually a yellow jack, along with red and white jacks for audio.
    If your TV has these, which it should, then the cable that comes with the Wii will plug directly into these jacks. Plug the yellow to the yellow jack, the red to the red jack, and the white to the white jack.
  2. S-Video. This is a flat black jack. There are four little holes, and one "flat" rectagular hole. There should also be a red and white jack that go along with this for audio.
    In order to connect to this input, you will need to purchase an S-Video output cable for the Wii. Most stores that sell Wiis will sell a third-party cable for this.
    This connection will give you a significantly better picture than Composite.
    S-Video does not carry audio, so you still need to plug the red plug into the red jack and the white plug into the white jack or you'll get only video and no audio!
  3. Component video. This is a triplet of Red, Green and Blue jacks. There is usually a set of red and white jacks along with them for audio again.
    This connection will give you the best picture, and you can set your Wii to EDTV (Progressive) mode.
    To connect to this input, you will need to get the Wii Component Video cable. Most stores that sell Wiis will either sell the official Nintendo one, or a third-party cable.
    Connect the red plug to the red jack, the green plug to the green jack, and the blue plug to the blue jack. Also connect the red audio plug to the red audio jack and the white audio plug to the white audio jack.
    Be careful not to get the red audio plug confused with the red video plug!
    If you see a picture, but the colors are wrong, then you either swapped the red and blue, or you connected the red audio plug instead of the red video plug.

SOURCE: Hooking a Wii to Dish Network reciever(not a hd tv)

It sounds like you have a pretty new TV. This means that there should be multiple AV jacks in the back for setting up your many components. Plug in the receiver into #1, the Wii into #2, and any other equipment you may have (DVD, VCR etc.) in the same way. You should then use the original TV remote to switch between Video 1, 2, 3 and so one for each compnent you want to use. The button on the remote will be labeled video, tv/video, input select, or input, something like that.

Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: Hooked up my Wii to a new TV, Now color is bad

I suspect you have it hooked up wrong check, Color to color, this is what can make it green, if not that then ensure your format is ok either PAL or NTSC, check.

Have blank screen with sound. Flashlight test shows writing etc. Says cable not hooked up when it is. When HDMI cable is hooked up it shows up.


Hi,

I hope I can help with this. It could be either the colored cables are not positioned correctly (they should all be on the same row) or it is on the incorrect TV Input. This can happen when we have other devices connected to the TV such as CAble box, gaming console (xbox, ps4,wii), dvd player, etc. The fact that you said the HDMI cable works fine and shows picture, it tells me it has to do with those colored cables.

How do I hook up my wii to my smart tv


Without knowing the specific model of your TV, answering this can only be generic and these connections may not even exist on your equipment.

In all likelihood you should have (at least) two audio inputs (one red and one white) along with one video input. The video input is not always yellow (see example image below) as it is sometimes only included with the composite video connection. There is no reason the Video/"Y" connection should fail to work with your video cable on the Wii's RCA adapter.

My wii comes on and you can hear the sounds but no picture and i have it all hooked up to the right things but still no pic.help


Hello.

Are you using RCA to connect it (red, yellow, white wires)? Try another port on your TV. The video slot of your TV might be malfunctioning. Depending on your TV, they usually have ports infront and at the back.

My Wii console will turn on, but no signal is received at the TV. The console powers up, you can load and eject discs into it but nothing comes up on the TV. I tried switching TV's and it still didn't...


If you switched tvs and no help than that tells you that the cable that hooks the wii to the tv is probably bad try a new component video or rca cable whichever you are using
