    I tried with some games on USB Loader GX and some of games just gives black screen.
    All i can do is to take the cabble of the WII out.
    Is there any way to force PAL on a NTSC game?
    My TV is PAL :S

    You mean, your TV is so old it cant display NTSC?

    Also, you can hold the powerbutton for 5sec to shut off the Wii, no need to "take the cable" out.

    Does your TV support PAL60? I don't think any NTSC games have the code to run in 50Hz mode. The reason the other way around works is because almost all games support 60Hz these days (which is almost identical to NTSC; just different color encoding, which isn't controlled by the game itself anyway)

    glad you got it fixed but you should never need to take the power cable out to turn off the Wii console.
    Holding down the power button for about 5 to 10 seconds on the front of the console always turns it
    off for me no matter what kind of freeze or screen I have experienced.

    Also keep in mind that there are a few PAL games which will not display correctly unless you have the
    settings right and/or have a TV that accepts a PAL signal(A lot of newer LCD's allow this) but even so
    when you go to reset the game or back out to the Wii menu it may give a black screen as the TV is
    still trying to use a PAL signal on the NTSC Wii Menu. This would require you to power off the console
    by holding down the power button on the front of it, not on the Wii Remote.

    Of Course this is all assuming you're running PAL games from an NTSC console.

    EDIT: I'm an idiot, didn't pay attention that you were trying to force PAL on an NTSC game. Sorry about that.
