Wii Color issues
GFs kids Wii is acting up really bad... im going over tomorrow to see if i can fix it... I asked her and the kids what is going on with it and this is all the info i got from them...
None of the below things happened after i Soft modded it... Wii worked fine until after they removed their Digital cable boxes.... (im assuming it could be a loose cable or something wasnt plugged in correctly... Just want your guys take on this to cover all my bases so im not there freaking out if its not something as simple as Der its in the wrong port... I will be bringing another wii with cables over to make sure its not just the TV as well)
on the Wii menu screen flips vertical and horizontal and has white lines shoot across the screen
wii resort plays fine no color issues or anything but wii sports and hotwheels has color issues Black and white and the screen turns black.... and both games change colors... all 3 games are legit games
Thanks you guys for any input
(i just hope its not the main hardware)

Since all of your information is second hand it is tough to give a diagnosis. If one game works but the others give weird black and white screen issues, that is more indicative of a region settings problem rather than a hardware issue. Regardless, it is really a crapshoot until you can get over there and see whats happening yourself.
I'm with cjizzle on this... hard to say. One would hope Priiloader was installed and enabled (to block disc updates) to prevent an out of region update. Also, the composite outputs on some Wiis do go bad... if you've got component cables, might give that a try too. You'll have to get back to us on this after you've physically eyeballed and checked things on this Wii...
the GF got tired of me nagging about the cables and finally messed with it... says it works now cause she moved the cables... She says the wii is working fine now... but im still going to play with it to make sure its not a fluke... i do agree its odd for 1 game to work fine...

First rule of troubleshooting anything electronic: Make sure everything is plugged in all the way.
Yea i know... but for some reason... she dont like messing with that stuff.... crazy what love makes you fall for... Gamer/PC junky falling for a woman that cant even build a PC... or play more than 1hr a week of video games...
