    Have I damaged my Wii?

    I recently purchased a four in one component cable that connects 360, PS2/3, and Wii all on one cable. The plug was not labeled and I accidently inserted the PS2/3 head into the Wii's A/V output (they're almost the same size). I think the image looks washed out now but I may be imagining it. Is there a possibility that I've done irreversable damage to my Wii by sticking the PS2/3 jack into the A/V output?

    Have you tried reconnecting the original cable? The picture could be washed out because all in one cables suck ass and are unsupported. They let the signal from one console go back through the rest of the cabling to the systems that are powered down!

    Yeah I did put the original cable back. I THINK it looks washed out but like I said i could very well be imagining it. I was just hoping someone here who knows enough about this could confirm the possibility.

    Yes my PS2 AV connector fit into my Wii. I didnt turn it on though!

    Its definitely possible you shorted something out now that I know the connector fits!
