Wii - no display via component on Samsung PS42Q7HD


Standard Member

Help please.... :lease:

I bought a Wii for my daughter (or me) for Christmas, and visited my Mums
house who has a Sharp 26" LCD.

I connected the Wii with a component cable, and all was good, set at 480p.

On returning home I have used the same cable to connect to my Samsung
42" plasma PS42Q7HD, but it says nothing is connected to the component inputs.

I have connected via composite, and tried both the settings, still nothing.

I also connected the green component cable plug to the composite input,
and tried all the settings including EDTV (480p).
But when connected to the component inputs, nothing.

I have tried resetting the Wii (holding the down arrow while pressing the reset on the Wii)

I have turned both TV and Wii off, and on. Connecting the cables while both are on, and off etc...

Any ideas would be welcome, otherwise I will have to return the Wii for replacement.


Is there any settings in your TV to tell it what to use on the line inputs? might be set to RGB?
