The wii's picture moves up and down?

On the tv screen the image moves up and down while black lines move up through it..

it is like on a badly, wrecken old video.
and when i try it on a smaller tv it is perfect..

and when i play the old arcade games (street fighter 1,2,3, supermario) it works fine.. all you have to do is get past the welcome screen.

plz help cheers alex.

    The wii works fine except on the old nintendo nes games that you download. When I try to play Super Mario Brothers 3 the screen scrolls up and down during the main menu and the game.

Well it might either be the tv or the av cables that is causing the wii system to be in black grey and white then.

I unplugged my wii to move it to another tv and it after i plugged it back in the tv was black the volume worked and the controllers rumbled al the power was on and working,


Power light is green or orange - TV screen is blank
    If the power light is green or orange and your screen remains blank, follow these steps.
    1. Completely power down your system by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the AC Adapter from the Wii for a moment, then plug it back in.
    2. Make sure your Wii console has the most current Wii system menu. Download the latest update (how to), and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved.
    If you continue to experience this issue, there is a problem with the Wii console and it will need to be repaired.

I plugged our wii into new tv. the screen shows a black and white picture. how do i fix it?


    What to do will depend on how you're connecting your Wii console to your TV.

    • With the yellow, white, and red AV cables that came with your system:

      • Did you have to use the red/green/blue inputs on your TV because it doesn't have the standard (yellow) AV inputs... if this is your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved it to another TV, . Our experience shows that many times this issue can be solved by double-checking your connection and finding the correct Input Select for your TV or VCR.


    • With the blue, green, white, and red component cables (sold separately):

      • Review our step-by-step Wii Component Cable to make sure the cables are properly inserted and that your TV is set to the proper input.

    If you have verified the connection is correct, and are still receiving a blank or black and white screen when powering on your Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700

Moving from Ireland to Canada with Wii and DVD Player


Is it a new TV? I am not familiar with the Ireland/Canada signals. But it could be a PAL/NTSC conversion issue.

Horizontal black bar on screen and no sound


It's probably overheating (fan is broken)

You can get a third party to replace it if you want, but I would actually recommend sending it to Nintendo.

Unlike Sony and MS, Nintendo has awesome repair services. They will do any repair under (1 year) warranty for free and if it's not under warranty then they will still do it for cheap. It cost me something like $96 (in Canada) after shipping.

They are also very quick, usually in a week you'll have your system back.

The best part is, whether your system is under warranty or you pay for the repair, you get a renewed 1 YEAR warranty with Nintendo, this is far better than Sony and MS who only do 90 days!

Insert game disk and horizontal lines move fast on screen ???????


Sounds like your TV has multiple video inputs. Make sure the TV is set to the right channel or input. I know on ours if I hit the TV-input button on the tv remote I can change from inputs like s-video, video, cable etc and the Wii only displays properly on one of them.

Scrolling Ghost Lines


Maybe what you should do is try unplugging the wii, or you might have bad cords, my last piece of advice is maybe the audio cords are messed up?
