    Noticing Artifcats. Help needed.

    I just noticed some wierd black dots on my screen. It is in baseball when the ball goes high and the air and the camera follows it.

    It only shows up when the camera and ball are falling and there is the blue sky in the background. On the blue sky I see small black pixels.

    This is the only time I can see these, but its annoying and I hope my wii isn't dieing. I have a launch wii and was planning on installing a modchip, but I was waiting on my tri-wing. Good thing I didn't install it But, can anyone replicate this problem? Is it normal? What to do !?!

    ps: I have a 32" flatscreen crt tv non hd Thanks

    I notice some black artifacts as well. Not sure what it is or why it occurs. Its not always there but it happens occassionally during all games I play. I have a 34" Toshiba Widescreen CRT television and am using the OEM Nintendo component cables. Anyone have any ideas or how to correct it?

    I've noticed the same black dots while playing SSX Blur on my 32" sony wega flatscreen tube. It's weird, I don't understand how come they're there on that tv, but not on another one I have. I need to test it out on my 58" plasma to see if the same problem occurs.

    I read more about it online and found alot of people have this problem. Some think it is caused by wiiconnect24 overheating the wii while it is in standby. Nintendo will send you a new wii for free.

    What a pain though

    Man if this is actually a damn problem, I'm going to be so pissed. This is ridiculous. I purposely didn't buy a launch wii for this reason.
