Ok so about a week ago I posted a topic about my Wii and the various cables where the yellow composite cable refuses to work with my Wii. After going to a friends house though I've made an interesting find.....My friend had a new Wii that had the new D3-whatever chips so I decided to get my Wii and hook it up to his TV using his cords/cables that came with the Wii. Come to find out the yellow composite cable didn't work with my wii but it work with his Wii just fine. So the only deduction I can make is my wii rejects yellow compostie cables...it'll work with component cables and S-video but not yellow composite cables. Why is this......My setting are correct as far as I know....but I think this may help someone if you decided to help me with this problem. this 1st occurs when I was playing my Wii during a power outage. After the power was restore the Wii's video wouldn't show up and at the time I was using the cables that came with the Wii....I assumed that the cables shorted out or something so I threw them away but they appertently weren't the problem. My wii is. Can someone please help me out here.
