Here's what happened:
My little cousin and I were playing an intense game of Smash Bros, when suddenly he got a bit too wild with his controller and yanked on it. My Wii tipped over sideways and landed on the dressertop (yes, I have it set on top of a dresser).
I didn't think it was anything serious. I mean, it didn't even fall to the floor. But as I reset it to look at the damage (yes, don't worry, I yelled at my cousin), I notice that there are faint, black flickering lines in various places on the screen in the Wii Menu. It's barely noticable, but when I play games with a bright, solid colors, such Super Mario Galaxy or the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (by solid, I mean mostly one color, ie: SMG, when you are in the Ghostly Galaxy and go to that weird realm with the green clouds. Loz: TP, when you go into a dungeon and look at a cave wall), they seem to divide my TV into "columns", like there are black little lines running vertically down my TV.
It's not very noticable; there has to be a lot of motion to really point it out. But it still bothers me. Yet, I don't think it's even worth sending in for repairs. I doubt the people will even notice the damage. So is there a way I can fix this by myself? Could it be a problem with the component cable? Can I just buy a new one? Could it be my TV? I haven't noticed the black lines until the incident though.
Please tell me possible solutions.
