    Sound but no Video

    I have a new Wii that's been used less than 10 times. It's never been dropped or abused. I've connected it to a HD tv and standard tv. When connected the only thing I get is the standard audio and a bar across the tv stating " NO SIGNAL". When I use the remote you hear the normal sounds but no video. Does anybody have a solution for this?

    How are you connected to the tv? AV cables or HD RGB?

    You have a bad AV Encoder. Send it to Nintendo if you haven't hacked. You can also buy component cables and they will work.

    I'm connected by the proprietary av cables that come with the system. I also borrowed the same system cables from a friend and received the same response...

    See if you can get your hands on a set of composite cable (five wires) and see what happens.

    Did you have any electrical surges in your house lately? That seems to be what takes out an AV encoder.

    Haven't had any surges...I've checked several places online. This seems to be a common problem with the wii, is that true???

    Maybe not common but not so uncommon if that makes since. It's usually caused by a power surge of sorts. From what I have seen they will tend to work with the opposite type of cable. That is why I suggested you find a set of composite cables and try it. If you are are not softmoded then I suggest to claim it under warranty if you can.

    It seems weird that only component would work in that case. But I agree with them if you got the warranty and you have not hacked it take it back theirs no reason to not get a brand new one since you said youve only used it 10 times I'm assuming its brand new any ways.

    I believe you mean component cables.

    @cralow: I strongly recommend you buy the official Nintendo component cables (picture linked in pwn statement). They cost a bit extra, but a lot of third party cables are crap and break (at least in the US, don't know about other places). Even if you send in your Wii to Nintendo, I still suggest you buy component. It doesn't always make a huge difference, but in some games it looks far better.

    I agree the price is worth it. I bought my g.f the offical ones and it works flawlessly, I got a third part set for my wii and they occasionally go out when playing (not good in mario kart).
