just realized my wii has been hooked up to my hd65 projector as 480i, so i changed the setting on the wii to 480p...now the problem.


for some games, examples below, the screen will go blue for a few seconds and then resume normal...in the lower corner of the screen it will confirm the resolution and connection i.e. it appears to re-hunt for a connection, turns blue, and then re-connects. it doesn't do it in midst of the game but it does become annoying. when i changed the setting back to 480i, the problem went away...so its definitely the cause.


examples of when screen goes blue

- wii sports bowling - after you get a strike or make a split spare it will go blue...otherwise its ok

- smash brothers - after a battle session it will sometimes go blue


hoping someone has a solution for this problem. thx rob

Very strange problem you have there!


First off I'm assuming you bought the special Component (YPbPr) cables that enable the Wii to output in 480p and have them lined into the projector. Only reason I'm asking is because some new Wii owners thought they could get 480p with the packed in Composite cables and that's not possible.


Now that we got past that! From my experience with projectors a blue screen means the signal drops out for some reason either due to a weak signal or a faulty connection. But what you're describing only happens at key times. I have my Wii running at 480p using the Component cables. I'll go home and fire up Wii bowling and Smash Brothers Brawl to see if I can duplicate that on my LG LCD TV. I don't think I'll get a blue screen but perhaps the signal will flicker or drop out for an instant. Maybe these games have a skipped frame in there at those key times. Even the slightest drop in signal will throw projectors into a loop. I'll let ya know what I find.

hi, yes i am set up with component cables from the wii to the projector. it is a strange problem and what you're saying makes sense in that during these scene changes there is a split second drop in the signal. what makes it odd is that it happpens with more than one game and i'm sure this would have come up many other times with other users using a 480p connection.


appreciate you trying it out and as mentioned, for bowling it happens after a strike and split spare only.


thx rob
