SOURCE: hooked up cable box, wii box and dvd player to new

Connect the Wii and the DVD player to different ports on the TV to and any other device to the port in which the Wii and the DVD player were connected to check if the issue is with the port.

If other devices also display in black and white after connecting them to the port to which the Wii and the DVD player were originally connected then the ports require servicing.

SOURCE: I have an LG47le5400 tv and a LG blu ray player

I have the same problem! Viewing regular t.v. is fine, as is any VHS tape. But when playing DVD or Blu-Ray, I get dropouts. I've tried three different players and two different HDMI cables. So it must be the HDMI receiver within the actual LG t.v. Would love to know how to fix this without having to replace the television.

SOURCE: I have a 32" flatscreen

Different video signals use different connections ...and we are speaking ONLY the video(NOT including the audio connections)

  • Composite Video (typically colored Yellow) uses 1 RCA connection on your TV
  • Svideo (uses 1 svideo connector on your TV) a circular connector with 4 pins in it
  • Component Video (typically colored Red/Green/Blue) uses 3 RCA connections on your TV
These are the common analog video signals....You cannot mix and match these and plug a composite (Sometimes called AV in menus) into component etc
If both your sources (wii/DVD) you want to use a component signal to your TV (which BTW is the best quality of the 3 I listed) you will need 2 component inputs on your TV
OR
run it through a high end receiver (that will act as your switcher)
OR
buy a small stand alone switcher, something like: http://www.amazon.com/4X1-HD-Component-Av-Selector/dp/B000BVIBGI/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_4

settle for a lower quality DVD signal and use the Composite video out (yellow jack) into the Composite Video In on the TV and use the component for wii

I hope this helps,
Magoo

We have a denon avr-589 5.1 system. It worked great until my son tried to hookup the wii into it. We now have no sound on the tv and dvd player. He normally plays the wii through the samsung flat screen...


foxtile,
How funny my son just did the same yesterday!

Make sure that the speaker selectors and the input modes are set correctly. He must have hit both buttons at the same time which turned off the speaker outputs and changed the input mode to a setup we were not using.

Can't hook the WII and the DVD player both up and the same time.


You can hook the Wii up with the standard RCA jacks and the DVD with the HDMI or vise verses. How many hook ups are on this TV. You can also run the Wii through the DVD using a aux channel on the DVD.

The trick is, you have to sync up the 2nd controller to the Wii before starting the game.

Turn on the Wii, there's a small cover below the DVD drive that you flip down, (This is also the spot where your SD Memory card can go) There's the red button.

Open the battery area of the 2nd Wii remote. You'll see a small red button.

Press both the red button the Wii Console & the Wii remote. Then it should turn on & Sync.

Once that's done, start the game. It will then recognize the 2 controllers.

You'll see 2 wii remote's on the main screen (1) & (2) Once that's sync'd your ready to play!

Nextech N600 DVD player problem


You may have connected one of the component outputs (usually colored red, green, and blue) of your DVD player to the composite input of your TV. Connect yellow to yellow. See section 3.2 for hookup details. Also, if you've hooked up component video, check the three cables to make sure one of them hasn't become disconnected or developed a short and that they are connected in the correct order. If you use an s-video connection, the chroma wire maybe broken -- try a different cable or try the composite connection.
If you live in a PAL country (most countries outside of the U.S., Canada, and Japan) you may be playing an NTSC disc in a PAL player, but your PAL TV can't handle the signal. If your player has a switch or on-screen setting to select the output format for NTSC discs, choosing PAL (60 Hz) should solve the problem. See section 1.19 for more information.

No picture on tv when wii is swiched on


Please check the back of the Wii for loose or disconnected cords. Also check the back of the television for loose or disconnected cables. Also if you use an adapter and the Wii runs through a different source before the television such as a VCR, or DVD Player, Check those to. Hope this helped! Have a great day!
