Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Playing the Wii, I see some dark, sometimes green

Playing the Wii, I see some dark spots ,black or greenish areas on my TV. When I change the input to a blue screen and still see those areas dark or green. after a few minuets they disappear. I noticed this happening when I use the Wifi, for example, using the Internet Channel, Wii shop or a game that has online play

Has anyone experienced this problem themselves?

I already got the GPU replaced as well as the reader and it solved the problem happening all the time but as I stated above I see it more during the Wifi actions. My Wii sits on a shelf above my TV stand, I tried moving the Wii as far away as I can and tested the Wifi and still had the same problem ( I think)

Any advice? could it be my CRT Tv? (27" RCA trueflat) is going up? could it be the WiFi built into the Wii?

Thanks all

When i turn my Wii on it does not show up on my screen all the time. Sometimes it does but not always. It usually shows up as a black screen. Everything else on the Wii works and I can eject disks and its...

try changing to a different input on the tv, or a different tv if you can(if you haven't tried that yet). if it stops then you know it's not the game but maybe the tv or the input. they do wear out from things connecting and disconnecting. you could also try a new cable from the wii to the tv. unplug the cables and check the length of the cable carefully to check for cuts or exposed wires (pets can chew them ect...). if you find anything odd, replace the cable right away. if you have ever had you wii modded in any way, that could also be the problem. even if it was a while ago.
hope this helps

Conecting Wii to a Phillips lcd tv. rwy cords. but the picture is in black & white ?? i have sound. tried different connections eg: red to green conections & the only one that works is still black...

it sounds like you may be trying to plug a standard composit video cable (yellow) into a component video input (red, green, and blue)
these are actually two different connections. Most LCD tv's will have both options (sometimes there in weird different spots on the tv tho) if you don't have a standard RGB (red, white, and yellow composite video input) then you may need to purchase a component cable either at a local store or you can get one for $5 on Ebay
hope it helps!

It is possible that there is a allergy that is growing the blue and green gun, it will not grow in the red gun, and it blocks the video and makes it look dark, on the greenish side. To fix the problem, you have to change the coolant in the guns, and then it will look like new again.

Wii is suddenly only playing in black & white. I've unplugged and replugged at wii and at TV, but not worked - any ideas?

From the Wii, the Audio-Video (AV) cable is Red White and Yellow. Now, those R, W, Y should connect to the R, W, Y inputs of your TV. At times, the inputs to the TV have a Red, Blue, Green input - DO NOT USE those inputs. This is precisely what happened in my case. Now, it is fixed.

I need to know how to hook up a nintendo wii to my sony fwd-42pv1 plasma. I also have a problem with green pixels in dark areas of my picture

This is pretty easy. Just buy the cables that have S-Video connection. Then plug the wii into the S-Video in on the left side of the monitor. Plug the Audio cables to your reciever or speaker in port on your sound system. Or, the other option is to Find or get a BNC to RCA adapter and use the RCA cable that came with the wii. My TV came with the BNC to RCA Adapter. The BNC location is on the left side of the tv, just above the S-Video connection. Then just change the input selector till you get the right input.

Sony KV-32FV27 Picture Discoloration

It appears that the greenish discolored area could be cause by the Yoke or it could also be some magnetization on the screen as well.
If it's the yoke that moved slightly out of position, it can be adjusted, but i would suggest to let a repair tech do it due a high voltage around the area.
Try unplugging the TV for some time and plug it back in and hopefully the demagnetizer circuitry might be able to clear the greenish spot.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
