    Help! Wii goes to black screen when using USB

    Needing advice. I'm using a powered HDD and am plugging it into the bottom (or left) USB port on the Wii. The issue is, every time the cable gets close to the port, or is plugged in, the screen goes black. However, I can still hear the Wii Menu sounds. Does anyone have any solutions?

    One other thing, the Wii is reading the HDD fine. I have games backed up to it and if I open up the USb loader, plug in the HDD, and then unplug it so the screen comes back, it lists the games I have backed up. But of course I can't play them without the hdd.

    P.S. I was unable to find an answer to this issue while searching the forums, so if this has been asked before, I apologize.

    I have to add an addendum. If I'm in a certain channel on the wii the screen will flicker on and off and is fuzzy, but it goes back to black when I go to the Menu.
