    Can's see games on LCD

    Sorry I reposted this because I had put it in the wrong forum.

    I just bought my son a new 19 inch widescreen LCD TV Monitor to use with his Wii. We have the Wii on the RCA cable inputs for the monitor of course. All the new Wii games work fine as does all the standard Wii menu items. The problem is with the games we downloaded from the Wii Shop. The only game you can play and see is Super Mario. Donkey Kong, Pinball, The old Zelda only show up as a black screen when you try to play them. You can hear the game going on and when you push the "home key" to get back to the Wii menu you can see the graphic of the game behind the Wii button choices for Close, Reset or Wii Home.

    I have tried making all the adjustments on the TV for brightness, contrast etc and nothing helps. Any ideas?

    Frustrated Dad.

    That is very odd. Try changing the widescreen setting in the Settings menu, Redownload a game, then call Nintendo.

    Also, double check the colour coding where you have the cables plugged into. On new TVs theres green, blue, yellow and other colours just make sure yellow goes to yellow.

    I'd say there's likely to be a compatability issue with the output format of the old games and that of the screen. Seems unusual to me that the monitor wouldn't support everything (expecially older formats), but not out of the ordinary. The older games will replicate the original in terms of screen resolution, frame rate, video format etc. to replicate exactly what the original game was.
    Actually, now that I think of it, I could almost guarantee that's the problem and sadly I think there's almost no solution (unless you changed the video format by playing it 'through' another source ie. video player).

    I'm not sure what "shite" is supposed to mean, however I bought a Westinghouse 19" 1440 x900 HD ready LCD TV at Best Buy. I spoke to Nintendo today and they are having someone higher up the food chain get back to me since the first person could not help. By the way, do the NES games work on your non-"shite" brand LCD screen.

    Yes they do. Maybe you should get a refund from Bestbuy.

    I'm having the same problem!

    I'm using a Philips 42" LCD that we've owned just over a year. It's connected to a very high end a/v receiver via HDMI cable. All of our components go through the a/v receiver except the dvd player. The Wii is connected via the a/v receiver using its supplied rca cables.

    We downloaded Donkey Kong and SNES Zelda and are having the SAME exact problem you describe! I've tried toggling the aspect ratio settings on the console, the tv and both in every combination but no dice. No setting changes on either end fix the issue.

    I was considering running some rca or component cables straight to the tv's side input to see if that would fix it (figured the problem was the HDMI cable), but it sounds like you've got yours connected directly using non-HD cables.

    I did submit a ticket to Nintendo about this today, so hopefully they'll come up with a fix. If anyone has any success, please post!
