On trying to play virtual console games on my HDtv I only have a black screen. If i press the home button the menu shows but then when i return to game, it goes black again. I have tried pressin z & a & 2 other buttons but this doesn't seem to work on all games, can you help?
I had the same Black Screen problem and I finally have a fix for it!
When using component video cables and a HDTV: Go into the Wii's system settings, under Screen, change TV Resolution to HDTV (480p) instead of Standard TV (480i) and change to Widescreen (16:9) under Widescreen Settings.

If you are experiencing display issues (dim, blank or half-blank screen, ghosted image, etc.) with a Virtual Console game while using the Component Video Cable, please read the following:
Some Virtual Console games default to displaying 240 lines of video. Some HD TV's are unable to display a signal with only 240 lines. Try the steps below to set the Wii to output 480 lines of video, which may solve the problem:
While on the Wii Channel Menu (main screen of the Wii), connect a Nunchuk to Wii Remote.
Select the Virtual Console game from the Wii menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
When the game starts, press the Home button on the Wii Remote. (In many games, the music can be heard when the game starts.)
Select "Operations Manual" from the Home menu.
Press the Z + A + 2 Button simultaneously (the Z Button is on the Nunchuk). A sound will be heard if the button combination has been entered correctly.
Close the Home menu. The game should now display correctly. Note: You will not have to do this the next time you play, as the Wii console will remember these settings.
If the Virtual Console game is still not displaying properly, but all other games work fine, please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.
I have the same problem. only I downloaded the game about a year ago, and it just stopped working about a month ago. I have deleted it and re-downloaded several times, it did nothing. my other wii still plays mario 3 fine. I have no idea why this is going on.

NES games on the Wii's virtual console can sometimes have display issues because the NES only supported 240 lines of resolution, which is stretched over a standard TV with 480 lines. Making the jump to HD,on a TV that can do up to 1080 lines, there's rare occasions that more issues could come up. I have never had any issues with Virtual console games on my HDTV, but there is a solution for finicky TVs. Plug a nunchuck into your Wiimote before starting your NES game. When the game starts, click on Operations Manual. When the Operations screen comes up, press the Z button on the nunchuck, and the a button, and 2 button on the Wiimote all together. You will hear a sound indicating you did this right. The system will auto ajust the game to your TV, so when you exit the operations screen, the game will display correctly.
what do you mean work
1. does not show up on wii menu
2. fails to startup after selecting the game you wanted to play
if the game still shows. follow these steps
1. go to the wii setup menu
2. go to the saved data
3. go to the channels menu
4. delete the vc games
5. go to the wii shop channel
6. go to your games that you have downloaded already and then click download. this will redownload the games without charging you again.
The following fix should help users who do have problems with some virtual console games for the NintendoWii that display only a black screen after starting them while the sound remains normal. This does not work in all occasions but should work if you get the Wii menu when you press Home and works only for games that received an update for the interlaced mode.
Try out the following to see if this fixes the issue. Start the game normally until you see the black screen. Connect the Nunchuck to the Wiimote and press Home to see the menu options. Now press A + 2 + Z together which should result in a short “ping-like” sound.
This should have activated the interlaced mode. Leave the menu and you should see the normal game screen and not the black screen anymore. To change the mode again press A + 1 + Z using the same method as above
