This is generally a setting limited to the television itself. Most TV's these days permit varied settings from one input device to the next. Therefore, every other device can appear the same while another may not. My guess would be that someone inadvertently modified the settings while the system was off. If they were only looking at a black screen, then the "brightness" would not be so apparent as it increased.

I recommend resetting the default video settings for your AV input connection (unless the Wii is input via another method).

    Our Tv while a newer one is still about 5 years old and we can not adjust the settings different for the different inputs. Thanks for the idea though and we did try to see if there was a way to do that.

    Sorry to lead you down a dead end. I have a couple of questions for trouble shooting purposes. First, have you connected the console to another television to see if you are experiencing the same results? This would clearly point out the culprit. The second question is what are the make and model of the television? Perhaps we can still identify the issue.

I disconnected the wii at the back of the tv and installed a piggy back plug so I could watch my vcr or play wii. Now I have no color when I use the wii although the tv is fine. I removed the piggyback...

Your wii automatically set itself to HD but your tv doesn't support it. You need to change your wii to standard definition under video settings.

It's been ahile since I've used my WII. All the

I'm not certain, but it really sounds like you might have the cable plugged into the "out" instead of the "in."
The best thing to do would be to first try using the Wii on another TV. This will help establish if it is the Wii that is the problem or something else.
If it works fine, then it is not the Wii. If it doesn't work, then it must be the Wii or the connectors.
To complete the troubleshooting process, make sure the VCR and TV both are able to show clear images (play a tape in the VCR, I guess). If they both show clear, and the Wii worked on another TV then your problem is definitely in the connection. Either it is misconfigured or a wire is faulty.

Xbox360 picture is too bright

I just had this same issue when i bought an Xbox 360 a week ago or so. Everything was WAY too bright but only on the Xbox. After some checking and rearranging of cords i found that the RF Modulator (adapter) i was using was set to the wrong resistance (Ohms) as i plugged in the Wii and had the same issue. I would say check the resistance setting and channel on the adapter, also making sure to NOT use "Y" rca cables to have more than one thing plugged into the same input.
Hope this helps ^_^.

No color

Try to change the settings on your Wii to play in 480i or 1080p witchever your tv is.
It sounds like a easy system configuration adjustment. Check both your Tv settings and if your using HD on the Wii try using just R/g/b (red,green,blue) wires. I would belive that the settings on your wii or your tv arent correct, just play around with these settings with the wii hooked up and on.
GOOD LUCK let me know if their isnt anything more I can do. MORE DETAIL CAN HELP YOU OUT because their might be 1 small thing you didn't do and can cause this.

Problem displaying nintendo wii graphics

After more checking around I found out this is not an uncommon problem with the wii. Apparently there is a design flaw that causes the graphics card to overheat, which creates various types of distortion. It may have something to do with using wiiconnect24. I am sending my wii back to nintendo for repairs.

Visible bands moving up the TV

The bands are caused by unsheilded power cables that are near the
set. sometimes your tv cable or antenae cable is near a power 
source and it is picking up unsheilded EM signals. Remove all
power sources near your tv and tv cable.

Old video games

 Dear friend try to change your cables if you are using regular A/V cables, you know the white/red/yellow, use a S-video cable and or maybe try to change the Video Input settings in your TV by going in the setup menu and look for the settings that will suit your console the best, most TVs comes with adjustable Video settings that ranges from Normal, Theater or Cinema, Video Game etc. pick the one that works with your systems. If none of this works try to contact the place you bought the TV and ask them for warranty repair or exchange. good luck!
