Static verticle lines on screen

Hi there, I have a Nintendo Wii, and when playing games (or on wii home page) - especially ones with white backgrounds there is static going in verticle lines down the screen.. I am using the standard Red, Yellow and white cable from the wii into my plasma tv, i have tried the Wii on another tv and get the same static lines. I have tried plugging the Yellow cable into a scart lead and running it into the tv that way. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

I suggest you order the Wii Component Video Cable through Nintendo's Web site, so your TV can use 480p resolution instead of 480i. The Wii AV Cable (the red, white, and yellow plugs) may not be working with your TV. If you are using 480p and the static lines still appear, contact Nintendo Customer Service.

Wii wont play downloaded games properly

Your Wii may need to be updated. On the home screen when you turn it on, click in the lower left-hand corner and go into options. On the second or third page, there should be an option to search for updates.

Hi, just wanted to know how to delete previously saved seasons and can one play an entire season playing for different teams

If you want to delete your saved game follow these steps:
1. Find the saved game by entering the Wii Options at your home screen.
2. Click on Data Management and then Save Data. You can access there your saved games.
3. Select the saved game you want to delete. You can navigate through the files by clicking the right and left arrows on the screen or by pressing the "+" and "-" buttons on the Wii remote.

4. Erase the file by clicking on the right-hand "Erase" box, and when prompted to erase the save data, select "Yes" on the bottom of the screen. The Wii will immediately delete the saved game from your Wii internal memory.

I just purchased a nintendo wii game symstem a d after attaching all the cords and sensor and inserted a wii sports game that came with it will not play the game i've tried it on all three of my home tvs...

Are you using the video cable (RCA, that's the yellow, red and white calbe) that came with the Wii or another cable like the gamecube cable? The Gamecube cable looks exactly the same, but won't work on the wii.
If you tried with the RCA cable that came with the Wii and it still doesn't work, try to loan one from someone else and try it with your Wii. If it still doesn't work, your video port behind your Wii is busted. If you're still under waranty, Nintendo will fix it or send you a refurbished one, just call them at 1-800-255-3700

Wii only in black&white

This is a common problem and it is not specific to Wii Fit Plus, it is a TV setup issue.
Access your TV's menu screen and be sure that your TV screen is expecting input from "AV" or "Video". If you have "S-Video" selected, this is the cause of why your Wii is playing black and white.

Turned it on, only 4 days old, everythings black and white, games play ok but in a grainy black and white

If it's 4 days old and having problems there is a very simple solution -- call Nintendo and have it replaced. There is a 90 day warranty on the Wii... Nintendo will replace a 4 day old Wii:

Wii video is black and white

Possibly you've plugged the video into the component (RGB) portion of the input - this calls for 3 connectors (Red, Blue, & Green) and if you only plug one in from a composite it comes out grayscale. If you only have one video lead (yellow connector) make sure it is going to a composite connection which should also be yellow. Otherwise, more info is needed about your connections.
