Check the resolution capabilities in the manual. It sounds like you either have your DVD set to 1080P which some TV's don't do progressive scan. Set the DVD or whatever to lower resolution like 1080i or 720i. It depends how you hook it up though because if you have it connected HDMI or DVI you can usually do this but with analog you usually can't change the setting.

Invalid format


Try rechecking all wire connections for proper placement and fit too and from the tv.
Try adjusting the video format on the DVD, flip through 480p and 1080i. See which format works best with your tv. Do the same with Wii.

See if this helps.

Zenith Z42P3 "Invalid Format" message from upconverter DVD


Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

Good luck
