My first post here - I have been scrounging the internet for weeks trying to come up with a viable explanation, but to no avail. Hoping someone in the community here has some insight.
Ever since I got my Wii (over a month ago), I noticed that various dialog boxes in the Wii Menu, Virtual Console help files, email messages, the Calendar, etc. seem to take on a slightly trapezoidal shape. (i.e. the top left and right corners seem to be slanted inward, where the body of the box and the bottom corners are fine)
I called Nintendo several weeks ago (which, on a side note, the rep I spoke with didn't know what a trapezoid was... Geometry 101 needed here) and after realizing that none of the generic screen setting solutions worked (most pertained to a 16:9 widescreen television, I have a standard 4:3), we arranged to have it shipped out for service. They claimed to have replicated the problem, and ended up replacing the entire logic board in the unit.
Yet I still notice the same dialog box distortions as above, even with the new logic board in place.
Has anyone else out there had this same problem? If so, what was the cause of this, so I know what to tell the next NoA Customer Service rep if/when I need an additional service done on the unit?
On a side note, my television is less than a year old - never had display problems with the GameCube, DVD player, VCR, or standard cable tv input. A standard 4:3 tube unit, although with a flat front glass display, not curved.
Any information will be appreciated - thanks very much!
