Susie Shepherd: This was very helpful, and it saved me a lot more unwanted stress. Thank
you for taking the time to do this.
Strictly Games: The Wii's hardware wasn't made with HD in mind, because the highest
resolution it output's with component cable's attached is 480p.
Lauren Montez: thanks beared
xoxo, smart girls
Lee Thompson-Kolar: What happens to GameCube games when played on the Wii & HD television? Do
those game look normal, or do they worsen graphically?
Den F: Thanks this was of great help as I had come to the conclusion that the old

Aseem Verma: A friend got the latest LG 3D TV, I was setting it up for her and was
shocked when I saw they have 2 coaxial ports and 3 AV that's all left in
the newer TVs though 3Sata, 1 USB and 4 HDMI ports but all her peripherals
are coaxial based which means depends on HDMI converters or buy new stuff!
Captainclaws: but on my tv if you use the yellow cable it turns black and white.
Maximilian Perry: This is a bit late, but if anyone is searching through this to see how to
fix the "no colour" problem, you need to "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'."
Neil McMillan: I got the audio and video working but there isn't any color :(
Olivia Dickson: I have a HDTV and I've set it up with the normal cable... How would I do
hsp gamer: Didn't work :(
Eduardo Herrera: Hey can you use the HD cables to use on a regular tv.?
HowToDoAndFixIt: You don't really need these component cables, and you can use the original
Yellow, Red and White RCA cables that came with your Nintendo. All you get
is 480 resolution and all you have to do, is to plug the single yellow
"VIDEO" connector into the GREEN (Video) receptacle on your HDTV
"Component" inputs and the red and white into the Audio inputs, and switch
your TV to "COMP/AV" and not RGB/COMP and you have both Video and Audio.
Beloved Console: 480p please!... hahaha
roberta423: Thanks for the help!
Pao Ram: My tv's component plugs have the usual green blue and red for video but i

Mike Mora: I bought the cables you suggested to hook my Wii up to my HDTV. I plugged
the cables into their respective slots and everything works fine except my
picture is black and white. I am 100% certain the cords are plugged in
correctly. Is there a way to get it to be color?
Carlos Miguel: i connected the wii to the tv with the component cables (hd ones) but the
edtv or hdtv option is still grey(i cant press i) please help
Roman Roque: very informative! good job
KinnArchimedes: 3:22 in, just tell me where to stick 'em damn it!!!!
rRegularock: Alright if you got a different one that has a yellow cable just put the
yellow cable in the green hole or input whatever its called and white and
red of the audio put it on the last which is red and white. Hope it helped
and i also have a different one that also have the green,blue,red but it

capable of this, only 480p (but it still is a better resolution than the

mawwwwwwwwwwk64: I have a problem with this. I did everything this video said to do. I put
the cables in the correct places, i turned the switch to hdmi on the cord,
i switched it to component, but nothing still happens. Ive double checked
everything but it still says no signal. is my wii broken? It worked fine on
my old tv. Also it won't turn off when i press the power button. Does
anyone have an idea on what i should do?
JAMMEZZ1996: Can someone help me. I'm not a techi guy. Here's my problem. I'm trying to
sell my wii so I tried using it after 2 years. I got sound but no picture
and everything else was working. My cousin took it with all my cables and
they got picture on their tv?? My tv is a HD sharp the same one I played
the wii on 2 years ago. I can't figure out why I got picture on 1 tv and
not another with the exact same console and cables
DYAC: My friend's business did extremely well with adwords. He basically pay google to put his promotion ads on varies websites and the conversion rate is really high. I guess it helps since he sells gag/prank gifts and his ads get display on funny autocorrect websites. He wouldn't tell me the exact amount, but I'm estimating it is near the mid 6-figure salary. No risk no rewards I guess.
