I aquired a used Wii. When I hooked it up it worked great. Now, all of a sudden, the top and bottom of the screen are cut off. I did not change any settings on the console or TV and can't figure out how...

You might want to try and gently clean the video plugin on the back of the Wii and the cord. It could be a dirty connection not allowing the entire video signal to come through. if not, try a different cord

I accidentally set my wii to HDTV settings and I need to reset it back to normal tv but my screen is so messed up I cant see options or anything

You can reset your Nintendo Wii video settings to use Composite (or RCA - Yellow, Red and White) cables by doing the following:

1. Make sure the Nintendo Wii is powered off and a red light is showing.

2. With the power off, unplug the video cables from the back of the Nintendo Wii, leave them plugged into your TV (these should be the RCA/Composite cables)

3. Press the Power button on the front of Nintendo Wii. Make sure the cables are still unplugged.

4. Keep the Nintendo Wii powered on and plug your cables back into it with it still running.

5. If all went well, the picture should appear normally now.

6. Once the picture has reappeared, you should go into the Nintendo Wii Menu (the Wii button in the bottom left hand corner) and change the display back to 480i to make the changes permanent.

This is probably seting on the TV that needs to be adjusted. Go into the picture settings on the TV and change the viewing settings to a setting that you're comfortable with. For example change the settings from 16.9 to 4.3 or change zoom.

You will no doubt find the correct setting in the TV's picture menu.

Big and Stretched picture

It is most likely that somehow the aspect ratio of your display has been changed. If you go into the wii system menu by pressing the wii button on the wii channels screen, then go into the display settings and alter them as the guide shows here:

Wii console...cursor doesnt appear on the screen but everything is sychronised and buttons on remotes work?

In the Wii settings make sure that the sensor bar setting is correct wheather it is top or bottom of tv. Then make sure the sensor bar is as far font as you can get it to give clear line of sight to the controller.
