    From my knowlegde you cant change it to 480p on start up
    you can try: booting up with composite cables (the one included) going to settings and changing it to 480p then turning off your wii and trying the component cables

    and If you doesnt solved your problem:

    1. Check if your tvs support the 480p resolution (even though you have an hdtv it might not support it)

    2. Faulty component cables?
    It may be the component cables are faulty, try them on a friend/neighbours/family member's hdtv and if it works then your tv has a problem

    Its probably one of the two

    your wii came with.. composite cables (480i, as in yellow, white, red) not component cables (480p)

    i havent heard of normal composite cables not working with a wii, but if these two dont work with your wii maybe you shouldnt try your luck with s-video

    Try only connecting the Y cable (usually colored green) to a composite inpt (usually yellow) and you should get a doubled black and white picture.

    His OP mentions the use of a pair of cables, so I assume that means he has the component and composite cables.

    The component cables include 5 plugs, 3 for the video and 2 for the audio. Make sure you're not mixing up the two red plugs (one is for audio). The Wii automatically switches to 480p when the component cables are plugged in and the only thing you need to do after that is tell it whether or not to display in widescreen. If you have an HDTV, then you want to set it to widescreen.

    If you're using the actual component cables and your TV is capable of 480p (very unlikely that it can't) and it doesn't look right, make sure you have matched the colors (blue and green are easy to mix up!)
