    Firstly a big hi to everyone on the forum.

    I tried the search but could not find anything relating to this.

    I changed my Wii settings from 50hz to 60hz(480i).

    However, my LCD tv (Philips PF9986) did not like this and all I have now is a black screen. I can still hear sound from the menu system but cannot see the icons to change the setting back. I've tried taking the power out and resetting (is that the only hard reset you can do?).

    I basically think I need to completely reset my Wii. does anyone know how to do this or any other advice?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Im not sure if you can reset your Wii, look around, maybe it says it somewhere in the manual, thats weird, maybe you arent plugged in propperly, or completely. Check your cords and see if theres a number you can call for Wii troubleshooting.

    You will have to power down the box and also remove the system battery leave if off for a few minutes this should restore the sytem.
    You may whan to try and connect it to a old type tv.
    Hope this helps. This is how you would restore a PC.
    Good luck.

    Yeah it's been working fine. I've decided to take it round my mates house later today and use his TV and Wiimote to put the setting back to 50hz. It's the only thing I can think of other than tampering with the Wii battery which I don't want to do.

    Thanks everyone for your help.

    Alright, you?
    And yes, theyve been warning people who have been multiple posting that have been warned about it in the forum rules, their is an EDIT buttton for a reason, you will get away with it for now because your new, but only for now. Now that youve been warned by me, I think you wont get away with it for long unless its ABSOLUTELY NECCESSARY!!!
