What kind of TV are you using?

Maybe your cables are wrong, because I have no problem playing them in 480p, other than having to scale them manually to 4:3, but sound works just fine.

Im using a brand new lcd sammy 656 with official wii component cables. Its weird because when i load the games up i get a blank screen sometimes with sound sometimes without, if i press the wii home button i get the usual options and then i can see the game in the background but when i click close to return to the game i get nothing again. Maybe a fault with the tv but i thought id come here to see wether im missing a setting or something ?

Make sure your Wii video settings are set to 480p. I have no probs with mine.

My screen settings are set to 480p, anyway ive been doing a bit of research and ive found that nintendo released a update last year that aparently addressed some issues with component cables on pal wii's on lcd tv's. But to enable it you have to go into the operations menu and hold z, a and 1 or 2. It worked but only with certain games. Super mario world and SOR1 still dont work.

I have a simmilar problem with certain games they dont display properly on my TV through component, bust so far all the games I have that work through it are Sin and Punishment, Yoshi's Story, Dragons Curse and Super Street Fighter II all the other I have don't display properly, and there are quite a few, not sure why though.

Hi, this may be too late going by the date of your post, but I had the same problem with the same TV. Here is the fix.

1. Change the tv settings in the Wii settings menu to 480i (don't worry this is just temporary)

2. Start a VC game. and hit the home button after 30 seconds or so.

3. Select operations manual and the connect a nunchuck to the wiimote.

4. Now hold down A and 2 at the same time on the wiimote and z on the nunchuck. You should here a chime.

5. Exit the operations manual and all should be fine. Now switch your tv settings back to 480p.

Hope I've been a help!

Your English is fine. Resurrecting a thread from 2008 is NOT COOL, though.

haha, sorry, did not saw the date. I guess Nintendo has fixed this problem these days then. I bought my Wii last week with the update 4.2e (i think)

This worked. Unbelievable that after 4 years we still had to do this to get it to work.
