I’m trying to switch from AV to VGA but the only thing i get is a blue screen. I tried to check if the wires were connected correctly, and it looks like they are. But when the wires are connected to the wii and the display driver, the tester tells me that all the RGB wires are shorted to the GND wire that they are twisted with. Is that normal?

Can't tell from the zoomed in pic, could you do a zoomed out pic of the display board for the LCD? Just wanting to check if it's the old BB store screen that had a swapped h/v sync

Ok not the board I thought it was, the other thing to make sure for VGA is the mode pin on the Wii is connected to 3.3v to make the Wii boot into VGA. If your wrapped wire around the RGB is showing continuity to the colour I'd recheck those as well.

Ok problem solved. H and V sync are inverted on this board. I don’t know why, but now everything works:XD:. I’ve also removed the GND wire from the twisted ones, so there is just one wire going to R/G/B

Nice glad that's sorted, since it's being tested with the unit open not in a case currently be careful you may encounter interference on the RGB lines when it goes into the case without the tight twisted ground wire around the RGB lines
