    Alright, so I was playing my Wii the other day when I realized it was kinda blurry some parts of the screen, much like this one:

    Can I fix this in any way? What should I do?

    Try and watch tv on it and see if it still has the same problem, also connect the wii up to a diferent screen and see what happens.

    It is most likely a fault in the tv

    if we're talking about those big blobs...
    They look like clouds.
    But other than that, I would have no idea.

    oh haha, okay. Gotcha.
    That's interesting though.
    I wanna say i've seen this before...but I don't remember.
    Anyways, I'm not sure what's going on, but from reading those two posts you posted, I'd go believe them.

    In the wii settings there is an on screen burn reduction option. Try that.
    The Tv may also have an option check that also.

    I tried that, along with reducing it from 60 to 50hz. I think it's permanent. I may have to get a new one.

    I don't have a plasma tv either.

    Sorry about that. It's basically links to two posts. One telling about this problem when connected to WiiConnect24 and the other that Nintendo has said it's only about 2 or 3% that suffers from this.

    I did so after I started to see the burn-ins. The tv works fine when watching it, but not when doing anything Wii related. Is my only option to get a new one?

    If you're playing on a newer tv such as a plasma tv images can get burned into the screen if you happen to leave a game on pause for a long time. Usually this damages the TV but not the video game itself.

    However I would also suggest on doing what wario said. Plug the wii into another tv and see what happens.

    Its not the TV. Its definitely the Wii because I have seen it on more than one system. I'm happy Goku was able to capture this because everytime I have tried the pictures didnt come out right or I missed it.

    Goku: Are you using component input? The times I have seen these artifacts including my own were using component input.
