This is quite normal if your Wii console is overheating. Try disconnecting it from the power, and place it somewhere with a lot more air circulation. Leave it for a few hours at least. Then plug it back in, and see if the problem is solved. If this solves your problem, then you just need to make sure the Wii stands in a cooler place (not above the air holes from your TV / Audio amp, for example). You may also wish to place a vacuum cleaner near the air holes of your Wii to make sure it is't full of dust.

If it keeps happening, you may have to take the Wii back to the store to get it cleaned properly, and to get the fans checked.

Good luck!

Not able to select HD on my Wii setup screen

Well see if it happens again, it may have been a one time thing. but try reconnecting the AV cables to the tv or change the picture settings on the wii setup options.
But this is important, is the picture grainy, or is there vertical black lines? if its black lines, i have the same problem and the only way to fix it is to send it to nintendo and theyll give u a new console. its due to overheating and the graphics card gets fried

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.

Black Lines and dots on my screen

I've never heard of something like this, but I might be able to help. You may already know this, but when a magnet or a speaker is close to a television, the screen may develop a purple or blue spot. Look around your TV for: magnets, speakers, phones and even headphones. If you find anything like this laying around your TV, remove them immediately! As they can leave permanent damage to your TV.

If possible, try hooking your Wii up to another TV and see if you get the same problem. If so, then I'm not quite sure what to do... Sorry, Guess I wasn't much help, huh...? ^-^;
