    Graphic Problems

    Hello,

    New to these problems and unfortunately here to report a problem with our Wii. Have had the machine since christmas and it has recently been showing graphical glitches. These get worse the more intense the 3D action - doesnt affect the video or static (picture) images. It is not game related as it appears on the main channel menu aswell as all games we have (Zelda , Rayman etc). .

    Thought it might be heat related so have put the machine back vertical and turned of Wiiconnect. .

    Any or ideas or is it back to the shop for a replacement??

    Any advice welcome. .

    Antony

    You should be telling Nintendo, not us. You are aware this is an unofficial Wii forum, right?

    Sorry - I thought this forum was a place where you could ask for help or advice from fellow Wii owners??

    . . .and yes I was aware it wasn't an official forum. .

    So does your reply indicate that a replacement is quite likely needed and that it is probably a hardware fault. . I was really interested to see if anyone else had experienced such problems. . .

    yes you most likely need a replacement. SOunds like your graphics chip may be giving away.
    TRUE Nintendo fanboys should own an Xbox 360 just so you can play the third installment of Banjo and Kazooie

    yeah you should just send it in to get it replaced. Also you said you put it vertical to have better heat management. Well, correct me if im wrong, but i believe that it will run cooler if it is in the horizontal position. If you find out that it is heat related you could always get a stand like this, http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-...ssentials.html

    Hi antonyjcross,

    What did you do to fix this ? I have random dots showing up on my screen, especially when playing Zelda or looking at the Forecast Channel.

    Did you end up sending it to Nintendo ?

    Thanks

    My Wii runs a lot cooler if it's lying flat. Makes sense really. In the vertical position all the heat is concentrated in a smaller area. When it's lying flat, the heat is spread out across a larger surface area for better dissipation.

    Not that it gets particularly hot in any case, just runs cooler lying on it's side. I doubt overheating is the cause of your problem, but gotta be worth a try.

    Safer in the vertical position due to less surface area and better ventilation
