Cath, you are apparently trying to connect something with component connections to a TV that doesn't have component inputs. Yes, that can throw the colors off, as all three component cables must be connected correctly to get the full video image. Assuming the TV doesn't have component inputs that you haven't found (some TVs use a "dongle" cable with the three connections that plug into a single connection on the TV), you would need to use a converter.

Here's something available on Amazon for $22: https://www.amazon.com/Component-Adapter-Coverter-Componet-Converter/dp/B07CP2FFS3/. This takes all five cables (3 video and 2 audio) and sends it out as an HDMI signal for connection to the TV.

Are you connecting to a Roku TV?  If so, who manufactured the Roku TV and what model # is it?

By Wii, you mean the one released back in 2006?  A Wii Mini?  A Wii-U?

Are you connecting via composite (three RCA plugs), s-video, component (five RCA plugs) or HDMI?

Are you connecting directly to the TV or connecting to an A/V Receiver that is then connected to the TV?

Thanks you to reply me. English is not my first language so I did not understand all your message but yes I Want to connect a Wii 2006 on a Roku tv. I bought my tv in Costco and it is a 55 with 4K so HD. Yes, I am connecting to component with five RCA plug (direct in my tv) but there is only 3 holes in my tv and the colors are not the same as the plug. Sorry I’m surely not clear because Im not that good in English but thank you to try to reply me.

It is not common to find a TV anymore with analog inputs (red/white/yellow). Most HDTVs are only HDMI anymore. If you do have the analog inputs, make certain you match the colors to the correct jack. Yellow is video, and must go into the yellow jack. Red and white are audio, so if you get them backwards you just have your left and right reversed, but they will still work. If your TV doesn't have those inputs, then your only option is to try using a converter box. Some people have success with them, some don't.

If you are referring to changing to the analog input on your TV, it will vary by TV maker. For the majority, there should be an input button on the TV remote. When that is pressed, you will see the various inputs available. The analog input might be labeled Video 1 (or a higher number if there's more than one), it might say analog, or perhaps something completely different. I've seen a TV or two that also just includes different inputs when you reach the end of the available channels when changing the channel up/down.

In order to put on the Wii. 1st, if you don’t have the channel already added, you’ll need to go to your setting, tv input; then add the AV channel to your guide.  Once you added the channel, then it’ll be at your home screen and from there you can play anything through that component.

Doesn't work. ROKU says it sees no signal.
