    Resolution not supported change devices resolution

    My TV is a Samsung 1080p 55' LED TV

    I got a few games that are not running, or not that they are not running but more like 'they are not showing up on screen when loaded'.
    I went to the list of how to make games work guide and the games i have problems with are not there.


    For example I have Need For Speed or Wreck it Ralf.

    Load the game and my TV goes black and shows me a msg that says "Screen resolution not supported".

    I tried changing the Wii's resolution on the System Menu.
    Does not work.

    It happens with several games.
    Tried it on my friends TV and they load.

    Has anyone gone trough this problem?


    P.S. I do have the component cables hooked up and tried changing all the resolutions. The Wii and the TV as well.

    You may have to use a standard composite cable instead of the component. Out of interest, do they do it from the disc as well.

    Yes they do it from the disk as well and thank you I will try a regular cable, the problem is I need the component one =\... If i put regular RCA, I can see my Wii on the TV but it looks black and white =\ i guess my TV is too new to even support RCA cables cause it only has component ones. Either way I will try it.

    The fact that it's black and white makes it sound like a region issue. Are the Wii, games, and TV all the same region?

    It must be the game region I am trying to play a PAL game on a NTSC console and i have a NTSC tv. I did not even know TV had regions.

    I am trying to download the American Version of the game.... I bought the European version from a friend just to try it out. He did warn me but i figured it should have work if i had Priiloader hacks such as FREE REGION enabled.

    Let's see if it works.

    Thank you all.

    P.S. dniMretsaM "I posted my system check and all the other information on the other thread". That other thread has nothing to do with this one.

    Region free will probably make no difference. What you need to do is patch the color system in memory. The should be an option in the game loader to force NTSC video or something like that.

    EDIT: Does your TV have a scart socket/euro connecter. If so, you could try it on the scart to see if it makes any difference. In the UK the Wii comes with a RCA to scart converter.

    EDIT2: What type of component signal, RGB or super video. Alot of TVs have two scarts, they can both take a composite signal but one will take RGB the other will take super video.
    Also some TVs have a shared phono, one of the red green blue is for a composite signal and will have a yellow ring around it.

    EDIT3: An NTSC game on a PAL only TV comes out black & White. I'm not sure if its true but i once read that a PAL game on an NTSC only TV has a rolling image.
