This is an instructable on how to set up your Nintendo Wii so that you are ready to play. This is meant for those who may find the game's directions t...
This is me, Da Hand. I will be taking you through this instructable with a "hands on " point of veiw.
This is all of the equipment that you will be working with. It can look kind of intimidating, but we will get through this. So don't run away just yet...
This is your Nintendo Wii console that you will be hooking up. Not much to look at, but that's why it's so convenient. Their is the front view, the ba...
Before we get too far into the process you must first decide where you are going to put your console. Because of intelligent engineering, there are tw...
You can also set the console flat so that it cannot flop over just don't place in upsidedown. In case you are paranoid of what could happen.
Some of you may still have a memory card from your previous system. This can be used with your Wii system to expand its memory.
Just open the cover on the top of the console and place it in the slot as I am doing in the picture below.
This is the AV cable. You can tell this because it is the only cord in the box that has RCA plugs ( the yelleow, white, and red plugs!)
The other end of the AV cable will go into the back of the console. The end that you will be plugging in looks like the image below.
The cord will go into the back like so.
The other end with the RCA plugs will be plugged into the TV. The three plugs are; the video plug(yellow), the left audio plug(white), and the right a...
Make sure that when you plug in the RCA cables, you match up the colors with the colors on TV. You can do this in the front of your TV.
You can do the same set-up for the RCA cables in the back as well, as shown in the image.
Next we have the sensor bar which looks like this. You use this so that your remote controller for your Wii can be used for gaming.
You will take the sensor bar's cord with the red end like in the picture.
And place it into the back of the console next to the AV cable's plug. The plug-in will be red like the end of plug.
Now that you have connected the sensor bar you must choose a place to set it. Make sure that the bar is centered with the screen of the TV. You can ch...
Or you can place it somewhere on top, just as long as there is nothing in front of the bar to mess with the sensor.
You can also choose to put the sensor bar on the stand if you want. This will allow your sensor bar to peak over objects already on the TV. It will wo...
This is the AC adapter, it's the last cord you will have to deal with I promise. It looks like this.
This is the DC plug that will plugged into the back of the console.
It plugs in right below the AV cable as shown.
Place the other end strait into the wall or in a power strip for safety reasons.
Now you're finished. All that is left to do is turn it on by pressing the power button in the front-top corner of the console.
When you turn it on, this is how it should look. If you don't see this screen make sure that you are on the right channel. Channels 3, 4 or a video ch...
Next you have to synchronize your wii mote. Which isn't hard, just open the cover to the remote where you place the batteries in and press the red but...
Then open the lid on the front of the console.
And press the red button there like so. This should synchronize your remote.
When you finish your synchronization, press A on your Wii-mote to see if your system will react to your controller.
If this screen comes up, you are good to go.
Good job! You have a successfully set up your Nintendo Wii! Way to go.
