The quickest thing you can try is to connect it to another TV and see if it works.
There are various methods for connecting the Wii to the TV. In the box you should have a component video lead with red, white & yellow connectors. These can be connected directly to the corresponding inputs on the TV or you can connect them to the SCART adaptor and then connect that to a SCART input on the TV. Try using the red, white & yellow leads directly if possible, just in case the scart converter is faulty. If you have more than one set of RWY connectors on your TV then make sure you are using the correct set (you might connect the yellow video to one set and accidentally connect the red & white audio to another set). If you are using the SCART input then try swapping to another input if possible.
Make sure the all the connections are fully pushed into the Wii and the TV.
Have you tried another scart lead? Also tried all of the tv scart sockets? Don't try and cure this by using an expensive upmarket scart lead, you'll just be wasting your money. The cheapest leads work just as well when the function correctly.
You could also try reversing your current lead by swapping the tv end to the Sky box and vice-versa, as there are many leads which cause feedback issues, and also a lot of "cut" leads (designed to prevent feedback looping) which must be fitted the correct way around. A "cut" lead is one where the wire to pin 19 at the tv end and to pin 20 at the video/Sky box end has been cut.
Note that scart leads MUST be fitted with the tv and Sky box switched
off to avoid damage. Most people (including professional installers)
regularly ignore this precaution though.
If all else fails then take the tv back and exchange it under the Sale of Goods Act; it's certainly not uncommon for new tv's to have faulty scart sockets.
If I've solved your problem then please take a moment to rate my answer. If not, then please report back with the make and model of TV and I'll try a more specific answer.
I had the same problem, after reading the forums and playing around for a while I cracked it. It was to do with the output from the DVD player, in the DVD player setup I changed the output from RGB to s-video and bingo! Hope that helps
on the back of your sky box there are two scart ports. one says tv and the other video.
from the sky box connect a scart from the tv port to the back of your tv.
from the DVD connect a scart from that to the video scart port on the back of your sky box.
now when you turn your DVD player on it will override the sky and come through on your telly without having to change the scarts around.
what i would like you to do now. is get an RF lead. ( aerial lead) plug this into the RF out socket on the back of your sky box either one will do ie RF out 1 or 2 makes no difference.
Then plug the other end into the back of your Tv if you have an aerial cable coming into your home then simply plug this straight into the aerial port on the back of your sky box.
The last thing your going to have to do now is tune your telly in. if you click on channel 6 on your telly then go to menu, setup, and manual tune.. A good tip for you put your sky on the TV GUIDE screen this will make life easier for yourself as you will know its the sky channel.
once you find it STORE.
now when you turn your dvd player on if you select channel 6 you will now have the sky channel so you can record whatever you like
If the new player you hooked up is causing the spit screen then you have to go into the set up menu in the DVD player and take it out of prograssive scan.. Its in the wrong fornmat for your TV set. good Luck
