    Well I am gonna get my dad's old LCD sometime soon...
    he promised he'd help me move it on the weekend, but he's really lazy. I can't rely on him.

    Anyways, I sorta tested my Wii on his TV. The black flickering lines were still there, but even less noticable. It's weird, because I imagined that a larger TV will blow up the black lines even larger. Hmmm...

    Do you mean "replace" as in the internal video hardware, or the actual Wii itself? Because if they actually just give you a new console, doesn't that mean that all your memory is erased?

    I don't think it's worth it, if that's the case. Like I said, it's not very noticable, just bothersome.

    OK, I'm thinking of calling them tomorrow.

    But do you know how they'll react to a thirteen-year-olds voice? I haven't exactly gone through *cough*puberty*cough* so my voice hasn't cracked to sound lower yet. Would they say "do you have an adult at home that I could talk to?"

    And I have two problems with that: 1.) I don't like being talked down to like that. I'm a nerdy Asian kid, and I know a lot of technical terms. A lot more than the average college student. 2.) My mom knows nothing about electronics; she treats them like they're cursed. My dad knows quite a bit about that stuff actually, but he never likes talking to those technical guys. He thinks that they don't know what they're talking about. And maybe he's right. He also hates shipping things.

    But his alternative idea is to a.) open up the Wii, thus voiding my warranty, and fixing the problem himself. b.) getting a new one, meaning that I will have to re-add all my friends, make all my miis, download every VC title I have, and miraculously recover all my game save data without an SD Card. As you can see, I'm in a bit of a predicament here.

    the guy on the phone said that if they did have to replace the wii they would transfer all my data and miis to the other one. he said the only thing is once they transfer your miis you wont be able to edit the ones that are on your wii you would have to erase the ones you want to change and remake it. so you wont lose anything including game save data or vc games.

    all fixed

    I just got my Wii back from Nintendo yesterday. The problem is fixed and they reset my warranty. It came back with a different serial number so i'm not sure if its a brand new console or if they had to put a new one on since they opened up my original. that really doesn't matter though because those lines are gone and i'm happy.

    That's good news!

    My dad is finally considering sending it in. But he says he won't do it till after the holidays, because chances are, there are gonna be loads of broken Wiis being sent in. He's afraid that if I send it in now, I'll never get it back.

    Dude, No worries if you send it in now. I sent mine in one the 7th and got it back on the 14th. Nintendo is really fast and they pay for everything. Just contact them and they will give you a prepaid shipping label to print out.
