Problems with Nintendo Wii 480p component cable

Hello, I have a 53uwx10b and connected a wii through two separate brands of component cable, both resulting in the same problem... a massive "bending" effect in the top area of the screen while in most of the menu areas of the system and some flickering as well. I ended up returning both cables.. Has anyone else experienced this?

I think it's a problem with your power brick. 3rd party power adapters may not not have their voltage regulated. Try buying an original local wii power adapter.

Try hooking it up with whatever cable it came with. We have this same t.v. and also have our Wii hooked up to it and have no problems whatsoever.

Got a brand new hdmi tv, hooked it up to wii, and the main screen is white, color is poor and cannot read anything


The resolution of your TV is over 720 pixels per inch (PPI)

The Nintendo Wii console can only handle 480 PPI

You may need to buy the adapter to hook the console to the HD components (R/G/B) instead of the standard composite (Y/R/W)

Here is one for cheap on Amazon:

Where to start.....alright. I currently have a softmodded Wii console, and I recently bought third party component cables for it. The cables work fine under Standard TV resolution (480i), but when I change...


From the Wii Channels menu, click the "Wii" button on the lower left of the screen. From there choose: Wii Settings > Screen > TV Resolution. In this menu, click on the "EDTV or HDTV (480p)" option and then click "confirm".

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.

Can the wii be connected with hdmi cable


As was said, there is no HDMI cable for the Wii. An HDMI cable would be a waste on the Wii, considering the Wii can't ouput 5.1 sound, and can't output 1080P (those are the main benefits with an HDMI cable).

The highest qaulity cable for the Wii is a component cable, which will allow you to output the Wii in 480p (progressive scan) vs 480i (integrated scan). All HDTV's have component inputs, so this is a non issue. Component cables actually can output 720p/1080i, but the Wii can only output 480p max.

Here is a link to the cable I am taking about. You should be able to get it from somewhere for the $20 range.

Nintendo Wii AV Cables not work


It could be a problem inside the Wii where it only outputs a signal through HD. Have you tried a different TV using the original cables? If the problem persists I would recommend calling Nintendo.

You need to connect a composite cable from the receiver. The receiver does not carry a composite signal over component cables.

Wii console to Philips HDTV Connection not working


In order to use the 480p (HDTV/EDTV) resolution, you MUST be using the Wii Component Video Cable. Any other cable will not display the 480p resolution, you have use the 480i (Standard) instead. You can order the Wii Component Video Cable through Nintendo's Web site. Using that cable, you can select the 480p resolution. Hope this helps.
