I just bought a new Wii system...but I am having some trouble with getting it working properly. I don't like calling support lines, I never have luck with them, since i usually know more about what is going on than the person on the other end of the phone.
I have the unit all hooked up, but the menu screen is so bright I cannot read any of the 'icons'. I have tried adjusting the settings on my television, and this makes very little difference, other than making the screen dimmer. (still unreadable) I am using the cord that came with the unit. I have a PS3, a sattelite receiver, and an antenna all hooked into the television and they all look fine with the way the TV is set (Brightness and Contrast are both set to 50%) Backlight is on medium.
I do not see anywhere in the manual how to turn down the brightness/contrast settings on the unit itself, as this appears to be the problem. Am I missing something or is it possible I have a defective unit?
I have not tried any games in it yet, because I do not want to be hassled by the store if I end up returning it if it is indeed faulty, or incompatible with my television.
The TV is a 42" Viewsonic LCD 1080P
