Nintendo Wii box light is on but no picture or sound from my tv
I purchased my Wii and Wii fit yesterday and have not yet been able to get the Wii to work, let alone attempt to connect the Wii fit. I have followed the instructions, for what seems like 100 times, and I still cannot get a sound or picture. My problem seems to stem from the 'input select' area of the instructions, as I can't seem to find anything that resembles this in my tv's onscreen menu ( I don't have the original instructions to remote control) and I cannot find the channel that the Wii should appear on. I have an old flat screen TV (one with the large back) and have used the 3 coloured jacks in the input holes. I have tried it with the Sky box on and off without luck. My 7 year old is killing me, please help me to get it working!

Re: Nintendo Wii box light is on but no picture or sound...
Sometimes just sometimes tvs are funny, some tv's call it a "input select" others call it a "mode" or simply "input" and some dont have any they just want you to goto channel 2 on the tv and go back one more channel.
ushally all these modes are listed on the remote.
is it the origional remote? or is it a universal remote.
try those things above look over the remote again see if anything resembles any of that and if not
list the make and model of your tv and if your using a universal remote we will be able to figure something out for you.

what you do is plug in the HD cables as you previously stated and then place the red and white cords where you would normally put then like when you plug in a dvd player or the place you normally would plug in the red and white cables.
When you turn the Wii on, and the light goes from red or orange to green, press A a few times (this would be to get through the warning/safety screen) then wait a minute. Then when you wave your remote about, you will feel it vibrating as it goes over the channel icons on the wii menu screen. Plus a blue light will be lit at the bottom of the remote to denote player 1.
If all of this happens, it is just a lead or TV input issue. If these things do NOT happen, the Wii is broke and needs fixing by Nintendo!
Also, check the refresh rate on your television an make set to be compatible. That may also cause a picture not to show up.
I have sound on my TV for normal operation when the FIT is in use and some vibration, sound effects, and comments during certain activities/games. You should hear speech (i.e yoga) or music and sound effects (i.e. balance games) throughout the session. If you hear sounds when your WII is on the channel screen it should work during a WII Fit session. Check the Nintendo Forums or contact Nintendo to see what may be defective.
Hi, your wii should provide sound through the Tv as well as the wii remotes, All you need connected should be the skart cable connected to the tv to provide the picture & sound.
i would suggest you contact the company you purchased the wii, due to its still under warrenty. i currently have 2 with no problems and didnt need to change any settings
