Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii image gone

Wii was working fine for few days and I was seeing what difference switching settings would have.( silly me !)
I switched from 50 hz to 60 hz and screen then lost the image ( just "whiteish" screen) Can hear that its on and when moving remote can tell its "on" behind the white screen but can't see menu to change it back to 50hz.( if thats the problem)
Tried resetting and get a momentary flash of the start up image before whitescreen appears again. Can anyone help ?

Re: Wii image gone

Try connecting to a tv that supports 60hz. But you should read up on this stuff before you do anything like that again. Understand , understand? alright! but do not do anything like that again!

Bought a Wii and using the standard cables it played great on a new 50' Panasonic Plasma as well as on our 2 year old 32' VIZIO LCD. Just upgraded to a 46' Sony LCD (W series) and the Wii looks terrible...

The Wii can display on a HDTV, but keep in mind the output is only 480p. It is not true high definition, and it will only display this using a component video cable. There shouldn't be a difference with LCD and plasma.

You will also need to go to the display settings to force the Wii to display in 480p.

Try a different input (safe to assume your Sony has multiple?) and see if it is that specific input. Also, try a different device like a DVD player or VCR and see if you get the same result.

Good luck.

New Nintendo Wii

check you've got it on the right PAL/NTSC setting.It's very likely the 50/60hz setting. 480i running at 60hz is NTSC resolution although the PAL Wii of course uses the PAL signal. The TV probably tries to interpret the signal as a real NTSC signal because it's 480i 60hz and thus can't handle the colors. There has got to be an option to switch between NTSC and PAL.
Are you using the same SCART socket that you use for your other consoles or a different one? My SCART3 input on my Panasonic telly has two different modes - one which displays in colour, and one which displays in a sort of grainy black n' white. There is a purpose to it but I can't remember what it is. :-)

Anyway, you switch between the two by pushing the AV button and then hitting the colour button which corresponds to SCART3 a few times 'til you reach the correct setting.

It probably isn't that, but... y'know. Sanity check.

Have checked all your cables? Try another video device on that input of your TV or try a different input on your TV with the Wii to rule out your TV. Try your Wii on another TV to rule out the Wii. Your cable may have become bad. Hopefully there isn't a problem with your Wii or TV.
