Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Pixelization on the screen.

Initially on the home menu screen there are a few vertical black lines that flash in and out, then once i load a game, some of the screens will be totally distorted with pixelization. It's still playable but it's really f-ing annoying. Any ideas??

Sounds like the graphics chip is fried. If wii connect 24 is left on, the console heats up whilst its in standby due to the fan switching off. This in turn frys the graphics chip causing those black lines. Contact nintendo and see if they will fix/replace it for you.

I bought a wii sometime near launch and ive had no problems. make sure all the cords are plugged in all the way.also if you have another game system try it and see if it does the same thing.if not your wii might be messed up.

Here is a hardware test you can run to test the video and lcd screen. That came with your laptop

Diagnostics before windows using the F12 Diagnostics
* Reboot and press F12 to enter the Boot Menu
* When the boot device list appears, highlight Diagnostics and press Enter
* The computer begins to run the Pre-boot System Assessment, a series of embedded diagnostics that perform initial testing on your system board, keyboard, hard drive, and display
* If the Pre-boot System Assessment completes successfully, you receive the message Booting Dell Diagnostic Utility Partition
* Press any key to continue
* Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the Diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive
* After the Dell Diagnostics loads and the Main Menu screen appears, click the button for the option you want to run -
Express Test = Performs a quick test of devices. The test typically takes 10 to 20 minutes and requires no interaction on your part
Extended Test = Performs a thorough check of devices. The test typically takes 1 hour or more and requires you to answer questions periodically
Custom Test = Tests a specific device. You can customize the tests to be run
Symptom Tree = Allows you to select tests based on a symptom of the problem you are experiencing
* When you have finished running a test, close the screen to return to the Main Menu screen. To exit the Dell Diagnostics and reboot the computer, close the Main Menu screen


during the test it will BEEP ! it is asking you if colored bars are displayed. if the bars look ok then your screen is fine but if during anytime of this test and you see the distortion you described then its the LCD screen or LCD cable

hope that helps

Flashing black and white vertical lines


Vertical lines in the display indicate a failing screen. New screens are expensive and not worth the labor and parts charges to repair it. It's new monitor time.

Wii black screen


The following fix should help users who do have problems with some virtual console games for the Nintendo Wii 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
