Default Ghost diagonal lines with Wii component cables

I bought a Wii console to my son as a Xmas gift, first time when we played i thought i did something wrong with the settings because graphics and colors sucks, so i double check every conection and settings and everything was fine so quickly i look some information on the internet, and i realize that most Wii owners have to change compositive cables to component cables if you want a better graphic resolution(close to HD) and vivid colors, well i did it, and i been happy untill few days when i realize of some ghost diagonal lines appeared from the nowhere on my TV screen when i play any Wii game, it made me pissed off, and when i look for more information i learn that component cables have to be the official Wii brand to avoid any issues as the "ghost lines" i don't now how tru can be this (i have the Rocketfish brand component cables)

Please i really need help/advices, i want to enjoy Wii games with the best graphic resolution without any ghost lines

Also i been reading about some HDMI converter for Wii, i read lot of good reviews but also are some bad ones so im very confused and sad...what i have to do now?

the only thing that comes to mind is a ground loop issue. while seeing the lines double check all connections. ive had ground loop with my cable tv and the lines would literally go away when i touched the cable. if your running the audio/video through a receiver, try going straight to the monitor and see if it clears up. and no im not a wii owner

it still can be a ground loop. the ground loop i had with my cable was a single cable line coming into the house going straight to the tv. and i still had the problem.

edit: sorry i cant be more help but try googling ground loop to find a solution that closely resembles your situation.
