Its a Sony Bravia, and i have it hooked up through the analog (red, white, yellow) cable... I didn't see a composite cable in the box. I haven't tried it on a diff TV, I may have to do that this week when im not working.
Sharp or Samsung are the ways to go! But I won't hold that against you
The Component cables are sold seperatly. You can buy 3rd party ones that work awesome. And they'll cost you a lot less than the Nintendo Brand. Plus, they are sometimes better quality (if you can, get gold plated ones). You should be able to return them to most stores. Just don't destroy the package. Heck, if you can put them back into the package and make them look like brand new, then that's awesome!
And you'll have to go into the Wii settings, and adjust the video to indicate that you're connected via composite, or that it'll be 480p now. And make sure that you select a 16:9 television (widescreen) and make the proper adjustments in the settings. My Wii is in Standby right now, and I'm listening to music (also doing dishes) so I can't get you the exact steps. But you can figure them out, I'm sure you're a smart cookie... Mmmm cookies.... Now I needs to get me some cookies!
Egh... don't bring up the TV thing... it was all my parents decision. i came home one day and mom was like, i bought a TV, it should be here Monday. I could have gotten them a better one, but they decided to do it all on their own. Its nice, it will do for them exactly what they want it to, and I like looking at it, so I guess it works perfectly.
I'll have to look into one of those adapters.
And, I do believe i have it set up in 16:9 already... I know a thing or 2, just not alot about the Wii itself.
I have a serious problem, guys. I've had my Wii for almost a year now, but I just found out this morning that it won't eject the disc that's inside. The console seems to be working fine on its other functions. I choose to play the game that inside, and seems to work without problem. But whenever I try to eject the disc, it'll start buzzing like crazy, and it wouldn't come out. I think maybe something's lodged in the disc drive or something. Anyone got any suggestions?
At this point, I think you might be SOL! Since the console is a year old, the warranty should be expired and you should be able to open the console (hey, why not mod it by putting the Wii guts into a different shell. I'm going for a Crystal Clear shell with mine) to save your disc. You might have to purchase a new eject mechanism or disc drive (depending on the cost, maybe it'll be cheaper to buy a new Wii). You will have to get a special screw driver head which you can buy online for like $3-$5 at most online retailers.
Right now, I think maybe opening it up and see what the problem is the best I can do right now. See, many weekends or so, I have some friends come over to play SSBB. But since we didn't have enough Wii-motes, they had to use the GameCube controllers. And since the cords on those cables are short as hell, my friends would accidentally pull the controller a bit too much, and the Wii would fall off the edge of the furniture piece where its lying. It's only some 12 inches above the ground, and it wouldn't exactly FALL on it. It woud just be dangling down from the cords. Still, there's a big chance that's what caused this malfunctioning.
i've heard some negitive things about the WI-FI adapter thing that nintendo used to make. what would you say is the best wireless way to conect my wii to... that was close, my nintendo wii to my computer.
I've never really heard any bad things about nintendo's wifi adapter. But as far as I know they're not sold in stores in the states anymore anyway. The best thing to do is invest in a good wireless router that you know is compatible with both the Wii and DS. If you get a good wireless N router now it'll be usefull for years to come.
