When we switch from TV to Video source to play WII we get distortion - the TV portion works fine. We were able to tap the side of the TV when in Video mode and it would correct itself but now finding it won't.

well there should be an option on your remote labled either source or input. that allows you to change from the iputs on your tv. you need to know which input you plugged your wii into. if you select the option and match your tv input to where you plugged your wii into and you still have no pic.make sure your wii is powered on. as well make sure you plugged the cables in correctly. if your using componet cables its red green blue for video and red and white for audio. make sure the audio and video are not crossed that will cause pic distortion. and if your using composite cables makes sure its red yellow and white plugged into red yellow and white. yellow is for video and red and white are your audio. if all this is correct and still no pic. then it's either your wii or your TV.
Make sure that the Sensor Bar is setup correctly:
Check the cord on the Sensor Bar for any frayed wires or kinks, and verify that the Sensor Bar is free of obstructions.
Verify that the Wii Remote is being used between 3 and 8 feet
directly in front of the TV, and that the Sensor Bar is placed properly
(see Sensor Bar setup). Verify that there are no bright light sources, including sunlight,
behind or near the TV, shining towards the Wii Remote or reflecting off
the TV screen. Also verify there are no heat sources (such as electric,
propane or kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, stoves,
etc.). If there are bright lights shinning directly behind the TV or on
the screen, turn the lights off. If problem persist your Wii Remote need service.
I have a question which video inputs are you using for your DVD and Wii connections? The reason I ask is because this sounds like video distortion cuased by noise. If possible can you send a picture of the screen when it has this problem and send which video ports are being used?
If it is noise in the video you may have a saw filter problem, or a decoupling issue. In any event I'll know more once you send those pictures and which inputs you are using for your DVD and Wii.
I had the same problem on a 32" rca crt. It worked fine, power was cut during electrical work and when it came back, "unusable signal." I went into the menu, then channel, then video input source. had to change it to the correct input "s-video in my case" Then it worked. GOOD LUCK!
Possibly you've plugged the video into the component (RGB) portion of the input - this calls for 3 connectors (Red, Blue, & Green) and if you only plug one in from a composite it comes out grayscale. If you only have one video lead (yellow connector) make sure it is going to a composite connection which should also be yellow. Otherwise, more info is needed about your connections.
Hold the Wii Remote with the button side down. Without using much
force, firmly tap the button side of the remote against the palm of
your other hand a few times. Doing this does not take a lot of force,
so be sure not to tap the Wii Remote very hard. Check for proper
Check to make sure the Sensor Bar cord is inserted into the back of the Wii
console and the Sensor Bar is centered above or below your TV screen.
Make sure you are using fresh batteries in the Wii Remote.
The Wii Remote Controller should be used between 3 to 10 feet from the TV.
Make sure no objects are blocking the signals between the Sensor Bar,
the Wii console, and the Wii Remote.
Check for interference from infra-red light sources, such as candles,
sunlight, fireplaces, and stoves.
Radio frequency interference may cause the Wii Remote to work erratically.
Check for wireless devices such as cordless
phones, wireless computer keyboards or mice, or other similar devices, and move or turn them off.
Hi, double check the rca jack cables that are red and white are connected to an input for the tv and not accidently hooked into the output connectors. Sometimes the tv manufacturer puts them right by each other. Hope that helps, Also depending on the tv there maybe more than one input set of connectors close together, so if you have the video in the line 1 connector but the audio in the line 2 connector you'll have picture but no sound. Try switch line inputs while the Wii is on and in a screen that is making noise and see if you have sound in any other line in(source) setting. Jay
