    Black Flickering Lines...

    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.

    I never heard of such a thing. I think it might be your TV. Try your Wii on another TV if you have one and check if the same thing happened.

    I'm pretty sure that's not the case.
    Before the accident, my Wii was connected to our living room big screen TV. Then, I moved it to my room, and I'm positive that those black lines didn't show up until the incident. I guess it's worth a try though, except it's a pain in the neck to unhook the Wii from my TV. All the cables go behind my desk...

    I just started noticing these lines as well. I've had the Wii for about 7 months now and didn't have a single problem with it while using a 42 plasma. I just bought a 32" Sharp Aquos and now I see these lines all the time. At first I thought it was the tv but the ps3 and xbox 360 look great. I tried with both the regular av cables and the component.

    good news to you guys who have this problem, i called nintendo today and they said it sounds like the wii is starting to go bad. i only had mine for three months. as long as you havent opened your wii to mod it you can send it back if you had it a year or less. i even lost my proof of when i bought it and they knew when and where i bought and are paying for everything to ship it. best costumer support ever. they said they will replace all my virtual games and miis and save data on a new wii. hope this helps

    It sounds a little too good to be true...

    but heck, I'm desperate. I'll try it. Thanks for the info.

    I just got off the phone with nintendo. they said nothing is for sure and that I should send in the console anyway. they will be paying for the shipping so that's good news at least. he sounded like he didn't know what he was talking about so that made me worry. hopefully they can fix the problem and not send it back with the same problems.
