This is the back of my Philips LED HD TV:

TV sockets

The sockets are dark blue, yellow and aqua-blue. My Wii has Red, White and Yellow pins.

I have tried all combinations of connecting the Pins in different sockets but I always get "No Video signal" on the TV.

Can some one help me fix this please?

    From what I can tell, the only video input on that thing is the Y/Pb/Pr. And even that doesn't look right. What's with the yellow paint everywhere? – Frank Jun 28 '14 at 12:31

    I just scratched yellow chalk over the letters to make them visible in photograph – QuickBlue Jun 28 '14 at 19:20

    I don't get what's unclear about this, voting to reopen – Robotnik Sep 24 '15 at 3:29
  • Something looks strange here. Y/Pb/Pr indicates component inputs, but those have 3 inputs for picture and 2 for sound, while in the picture there's only 3 inputs (and miscoloured, if we suppose they're for component). Also, the labels on the first two indicate both audio and video input. I'm confused. – George T Sep 24 '15 at 8:43

If the TV doesn't have the Red, White & Yellow sockets located elsewhere, you won't be able to use it

Those sockets are for component, not standard definition

If you have a SCART socket though and have one of these around you will be able to use it. Otherwise you can use a converter to allow it to play through a HDMI socket, for around $20.


In addition to Rainbows' suggestions, you can also buy a Red/Yellow/White to HDMI converter (which every HDTV has). They are just somewhat (well a LOT) more expensive:

It just isn't possible with the input sockets you photographed.
