    When im using my wii after like 10 minutes i get theese huge misscoulorations on each side of my TV on the right side is a huge orangey brown coloured bar and on the other side its a huge blue-green coloured bar! It satrted the day after i got my wii but it was small so i figured it was no big deal but now its out of control and i can barley see the TV.

    Do you have a standard CRT TV, not an LCD?

    If you do it sounds like your tv has been magnetized and that it needs to be degaussed.

    Maybe there's something wrong with the cables? Try doing something to them? Or... Call Nintendo.

    I would first move anything electronic away from the TV, at least 2 feet away, including all speakers. Make sure you have proper ventilation for the Wii to allow it to cool down. If your TV only does it with the Wii and not with regular TV or other sources then there is something obviously going on with the Wii and your TV. Check to make sure your cables are properly inserted, sometimes taking them out and reinserting them again helps. Check your video cable to make sure it has hasn't been pinched, crimped, bent, or damaged. As for the overheating part, I can not confirm this, perhaps someone else can.

    Its probably a weird signal from your TV to the Wii. I had a weird Red faded spot on mine and as soon as I moved the Wii away it was fine. I have a Sony 36" Flat Screen Wega

    My friend's tv got f'd up that way when this guy poked a glow stick near the screen. maybe something like that happened. if it's only happening when the wii is on though, then I suggest you contact Nintendo.

    I've had the same exact problem on my TV here at school.

    When I take it home it never happens though. I'm not too sure what it is, but it only seems to effect the menus.

    nah it's not, as soon as I switch to an other channel it dissapears, and your screen can't burn when there's moving things on it

    Just so we all know, have you actually tried this method? No point people trying to help if your not really willing to try things that people suggest, although I understand he was very rude however please try the burn-n reduction and then we can rule it out as not a solution if it doesn't work.

    The burn-in protection only kicks in when you leave it on, but don't touch any of the controls for awhile. And screen burn-in would only be leaving after-images of text or lines on the screen (and is pretty rare with CRT type TVs these days).

    Based on the description, it does sound like there is something magentic near the screen (speakers are a common culprit) or the screen itself has been magnetized (as was mentioned by previous posters). It's harder to notice that when watching regular TV because the colors and images move around much more than when you're on the Wii menu.
