    I bought a Sharp LCD and hooked up the Wii but it comes in slightly fuzzy and in black and white. I have looked all over the internet and see that many people have this same issue, but I can't find any solution on the internet. Best Buy geeks have been no help either. I figured this is the best place to get some answers. Has anyone else here had this same probelm? Is there a solution? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    What type of cables are you using? regular (yellow / red / white ) or component cables?
    Whats the model # of your tv?

    I'm using the standard composite cable that came with the Wii (red/yellow/white). I'll have to get back to you with the model number. Have you heard of this before? It seems searching on the internet that this is a common problem with Sharp.

    Reading through a few forums for ya. There are a couple step by step guides on getting wii to work properly, but they seem to be model specific.

    Thanks, I have been pulling my hair out trying to find a fix. I'll have to get the model # when I get home.

    A component cable may be the answer. Here's a link to one at Best Buy.

    I have a Toshiba LCD and the Wii works fine, but i think I'm going to try these cables as well. I read that there is a slight picture enhancement. Picture scaling is also easier for HDTV's when using component cables. - This may be where your Sharp is having an issue.

    *I'm sure there are many other places to purchase component cables. - An online retailer may be the cheapest route, but a local store may be easier for returns if they don't work for you.

    for a HD TV anyway component is much better to get the best quality signal for the Wii the interlaced 480i you get with just the standard cable can really not look very good on a HD tv so hope that helps.

    Looks like Component Cables are needed. here's a link I found to a tech website discussing your situation.
    http://www.justanswer.com/tv-repair/4jont-connect-wii-sharp-aquos-quattron-received.html
    I do not recommend the converter cable they talk about there, go for component cables

    Check out Amazon, prices start at about 4 bucks :)

    By the way, that is one sweet TV. Aside from your Wii issue the reviews / ratings that come up look really favorable.
    Cheers!

    Thanks for your help. I'm going to try the component cable next, but Best Buy didn't have any in the store and the holidays had me distracted. I'll find one this week.

    Thanks again for all of your help.
