Problem displaying nintendo wii graphics

I have a new LG LCD tv, and it works perfectly, except that when I am using my nintendo wii (either with component cable or regular av/cable) it sometimes has problems with the display. In certain regions of the screen the picture will go grainy with a lot of the pixels in the wrong color - mostly green and red. In a game like lego star wars it happens very infrequently, but in games like resident evil 4 or zelda where the graphics are more involved it happens almost constantly (except in menu and transitional screens). I don't really think this is a problem with the tv, since it is perfectly capable of playing DVDs and television (both HD and SD) with no problems at all. I have also played PS2 games with no problem. It also seems strange that the wii would have any issue since it was working fine with my old Samsung SD tube tv. I have tried using pretty much every combination of tv picture settings and wii settings, but none of them seem to make any difference. Any ideas?

After more checking around I found out this is not an uncommon problem with the wii. Apparently there is a design flaw that causes the graphics card to overheat, which creates various types of distortion. It may have something to do with using wiiconnect24. I am sending my wii back to nintendo for repairs.

Hello, I have a lg lcd monitor. w1941s model. when I start my computer, it work for sometime. then it goes blank showing only the LG logo. then the power button doesnot work. it hang up glowing. again


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

Connected to tv but no Wii screen when we switch


Was trying to use the component option on the screen, as this had the red, yellow and white plugs shown. Eventually tried all the other options and found that it was plugged into Video 1! Works perfectly. Should try all the options on the TV!

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.

swap your av cable with a friends and see if it still happens. if it doesnt u no that the av cable is broken and youll have to buy a new one, if it still happens, then theres a problem with your wii. it could possibly be the graphics card is damaged from overheating, or just bashed around. nintendo will propably fix it for free if the wiis dodgy

Fuzzy TV Screen


The Wii requires updated Tv's that can handle the graphics. Make sure that the A/V cables are securely in and try using another TV.
