Wii Delay on new Insignia TV

Hi.
My husband and I just upgraded to a 50" Plasma TV last night from an old 25" tube TV. We were so excited, and quickly plugged in our Wii for a good old game of Tennis.

Unforunately, there was a difference immediately in the response on the wii. I even couldn't seem to click on the correct "mii" character, because my pointer was not responding like it used to on the other tv.

I went into my Wii settings and figured everything out there...and the problem was still there. We were very frustrated.

So...I need to figure out why there is a delay.
1) Do I need to buy HD component cables for my Wii?
2) Is it the TV?
3) I also read online that I might want to turn of the Digital NR in the TV's settings?

Thanks for any help.

    I have a 48in LG LCD flatscreen having the same problem. My previous tube TV has no delay when playing games, Rockband, etc., but when hooked up to my new flat-screen there is a 1/2 second delay between pushing the button on the guitar or controller and the response on the screen.

    I have the same problem, also. I had a 26" tube tv, and i bought a new 32" HDTV and now the wii has a delay. It makes it almost impossible to play.

We just upgraded from a 32" LG tube tv to a 46" Insignia LCD and had the same problem with our Wii and PS3. For us, we just switched the TV settings DCM (digital clear motion) function. We keep it on high for movies and TV shows and turn it completely off when playing Wii and PS3 games. Hope this helps!!

I upgraded my 29" CRT to a 50" Insignia Plamsa HDTV, and experienced a horrible lag as well, making Guitar Hero unplayable on the Wii. Based on a recommendation on another forum, I bought the Nintendo component cables for the Wii ($39.99 at Best Buy), and in the Wii Settings I enabled 480p resolution (which you can only do if you have the component cables), and enabled burn-in protection. That fixed the problem. No more lag! Hope this info helps someone else.

Never buy a used plasma,Period,,,,because these tv,s are made to work right for only so many hours and than start there troubles. Always look at any used tv back and get the manufacture date,this way you can see how old it is,,,,,,,,,Alot of flat screens called LCD dont last long eithermall I can say is check with consumer guide before you buy even a New one. Cany say whats wrong with your used one but now you know better on how to buy one.

Although we would not be able to assist you with power issue you're having with your TV, I can assure you that the issue with your new HD Insignia TV not turning on has nothing to do with the DISH Network receiver you have connected to it.

I purchased this hdtv new from Best Buy in February 2008. Last week a crackling sound began to develop and now the sound has gone completely, although the picture is fine.


Insignia T.V. 50" Model; NS-PDP50, Plasma T.V.

T.V. comes on, there is sound but no picture.
T.V. is les than 18 months old. We use the T.V. when we come to our Condo in Daytona Beach for vacation, so it hasn't been used very much.
