WARNING - Battery Leakage
TV and Audio/Video Settings
After you have completed all steps of the setup procedure and are ready to
use the Wii system, you will need to set the appropriate "input select"
setting for your TV, VCR or other audio equipment.
1. Turn ON the power for your TV and any audio equipment connected to your
gameplay setup and the power on the Wii console.
2. Select the correct input setting for your TV (see Input Select Information at right).
3. The Wii Menu (see below) should appear on the TV screen. See the Wii Menu
section of the Operations Manual - Channels and Settings, for more information
on this feature.
If the Wii Menu screen does not appear, check to make sure your input setting is
correct and review the Troubleshooting section on pages 36-39.
Input Select Information
The input select allows you to switch between the different inputs on your TV or VCR.
Manufacturers of TVs and VCRs use different names and locations for "input select.”
The common names for the input select are: input, select, input select, line, line in,
source, in, EXT, and AUX. Consult your TV or VCR instruction manual for details.
NOTE: More information on "Input Select" is available on our web site at
Locate the input select for the component that the Wii AV Cable is connected to (either
the TV or VCR). The most common locations for input select are:
• A button on the front of the TV or VCR.
• A button on the remote control.
• A high-numbered or low numbered channel (92, 99, 00, or 02) on the TV or VCR.
• An on-screen menu selection.
Setup of the Wii Remote
The Wii Remote comes with the Wii MotionPlus accessory installed.
• Be sure that the jacket is installed during gameplay to reduce
the risk of harm to the remote, surrounding objects, or people.
• It may be necessary to remove the jacket – for example, to replace the
batteries in the Wii Remote. If you do remove the jacket, be sure to replace
it before further play.
The Wii Remote uses AA batteries. Nintendo recommends high quality alkaline
batteries for best performance and longevity of battery life. If you use rechargeable
nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s
guidelines for safety and proper usage.
Leakage of battery ﬂuid can cause personal injury as well as damage to your remote.
If battery leakage occurs, thoroughly wash the affected skin and clothes. Keep battery
ﬂuid away from your eyes and mouth. Leaking batteries may make popping sounds.
To avoid battery leakage:
• Do not mix used and new batteries (replace all batteries at the same time).
• Do not mix different brands of batteries.
• Nintendo recommends alkaline batteries. Do not use Lithium ion, nickel cadmium
(NiCad), or carbon zinc batteries.
• Do not leave batteries in the remote for long periods of non-use.
• Do not recharge alkaline or non-rechargeable batteries.
• Do not put the batteries in backwards. Make sure that the positive (+) and
negative (-) ends are facing in the correct directions. Insert the negative end ﬁrst.
When removing batteries, remove the positive end ﬁrst.
• Do not use damaged, deformed or leaking batteries.
• Do not dispose of batteries in a ﬁre.
See page 20 for instructions on removing the jacket and installing batteries.
