    Hi everyone ive recently bought a "Just works 480p" cable from dealextreme.

    Just tried it on my monitor which only got VGA (Dont know why its brand new). Ive bought a VGA To Component cable from DX too and 3 component cable joiners.

    I see a picture on my screen, I also see the red, green and blue colors but all white, purple and even more of them is displayed as green colors!

    Its driving me nuts! Is it because of the way ive done it? (Wii -> Component -> VGA -> Monitor) or is my Component cabels bad?

    You got them plugged in wrong or the cables were color labled incorrectly

    No they are plugged in right.

    The wierd thing is if i only plug in the green one then it displays the image.

    But it wont display anything if i connect only the blue or red cable.

    I don't mean to be insulting, but you sure you haven't got the 2 red leads mixed up ?
