Hey guys, maybe you can help me out.
I thought I connected everything properly, but I get black and white no matter what!
I'll give you a run down on everything I did and maybe you can tell me what's wrong.
(I have tried re-doing everything, the only thing I can think of is that my bridge for 8 and 10 might be wrong, but I dont understand if that would have anything to do with not having color since it's only supposed to enable progressive scan, no?)
Here is what I did.
I had my Nintendo composite cables then a pair of RCA cables that I wasn't using.
I removed the shell from the cables exposing the wires.
I removed the pins for composite video and the 2 grounds for audio.
I inserted the video into pin 7, and then the other two into 9 and 11.
I proceeded then to cut off the male connectors for the left and right audio on the Wii composite cable.
After that I cut off the male connectors for left and right audio off the RCA cables that I was not using.
I connected the positive (middle) of left and right audio back to the left and right audio cables I had cut off the wii.
The former ground (outside) wires I twisted together and connected to the new RCA cables that I cut (respectively, each wire to each head, creating two new heads for the color)
On a sidenote, I soldered together the wire to prevent breaking and then wraped it up with some electrical tape to try and make it look as neat as possible.
The only problem I had is trying to bridge pins 8 and 10. I've tried a few different way's, but don't ever receive an option to enable component. When I insert the paper clip how far is it supposed to go? Its supposed to touch the pins on the dongle as well as the pins on the insert of the Wii, correct?
Would not bridging 8 and 10 correctly give me the color issues or is it something else? Even if I left it unbridged I still have no color on the screen.
I have tightened everything as hard as I can, except for the 8/10 bridge, which I have been a little lenient on because I didnt want to break the consoles connection.
Does anyone have/know how to fix this problem?
I tried to go into as much detail as I can, if you have any questions I'll help you out.
Thanks a lot,
