Well even though the wii played on the older style tv's the video cable was bad. It was roasted. It had a black look to it the others had the gold tint. I finally called a friend of mine and borrowed his wire later that night. Bam the thing worked like a charm on the tv's it was having issues with. I don't understand why it would work on the older ones and not the new tv's which used all three wires yellow, red and white. But anyways if you experience this issue check the cables real well oddly enough it may be the same issue.
I bought a universal kit at gamestop for about $15. It will work with wii, xbox and i think PS3. cheaper then the wii version of the cable which works only for wii.
Hope this helps someone!
