What is the error message exactly? Are you certain you are inserting the disc correctly? Label to the right?

    I checked all trouble shooting info on nintendo.com and apparently--since it happens with all the games---it is an internally issue that requires servicing the wii. Why don't you try calling customer support and see if they have either another idea, or can give you information regarding where to have it serviced. Here's the number 1-800-255-3700. good luck.

Problems Go Through the Roof for Xbox 360 Vs. Wii


Here at FixYa, we have our community members solve problems dealing with all kinds of devices. I had a recent problem with my Xbox 360 and when I checked at the amount of problems associated with Video Games Console, I came to a surprising discovery:

Complaints about Xbox 360 Vs. Nintendo Wii

827af56.png
The Amount of Problems and Complaints about Xbox 360 is almost 3X the that of the Nintendo Wii.

Some might claim that the higher number of flaws in the 360 is due to the fact that it was introduced to the market a year and a half before the Wii, causing the average age of a 360 console to be older than the average Wii.

However this fact is somewhat offset when looking at the number of consoles out there – As of today there are 30% more Wii than Xbox360, much more Wii consoles to break down.

A 3X difference is really shocking, but I still thought it couldn't be as bad as it seemed. I thought the problems must be from people complaining about some trivial issues, but when I actually checked the Top problem on the Xbox, I found this:

3562989.jpg
The Red Circle Of Death:

Condition: When you turn on the Xbox you get a blank screen, a clack sound and 3 red lights on the front start that flash.

Result: Death. Or not being able to do anything with your Xbox.

Other frequent problems:

Showing picture but no sound – TV goes blank but you can still hear sound

2 red lights – XBOX turns off – Console is overheated and stops working.

Error E74 – Hardware malfunction – System hardware problem.

XBOX not reading Games – Lens gone bad.

Seriously? Those are some mean problems!

I checked what the Wii's Biggest Problem was:

Wii Remote doesn’t work:

Solutions: Resync it, Slap it or just Change the batteries…

704857d.jpg
Other frequent ones:

Forgetting password – Forgetting Secret question and password.

Ejecting disk – Disk tray doesn’t open up.

Unable to get into Wii Settings – Firmware issues.

It just comes to show you that the Xbox 360 is a beast and it has a lot of beast-sized problems while the Wii is a pretty simple machine.

The Wii scores another point; just feed it fresh batteries and it’s as reliable as a good old Atari!

My sons are playing Ghostbusters for the Wii and and error message keeps coming up - Fatal Error Msg: Call of NULL function 8FA2: TRI_Library_l_RRTwisted .......unofficial build Apt. 22, 2009 ...


It could be the game. Return it to the store and buy another copy and see if it gives you the same error message. Otherwise, your son probably tried installing apps on the Wii like Homebrew and "bricked" the Wii, which will make it never work again.

When I turned on my system, it had system error contact xbox customer support. There is a red light flashing on the bottom right, around the power button. I don't know what to do. Please help.


Some of us suddenly when we turn on our Xbox 360 console one day we got one red light flashes on the ROL (Ring of Light) around the Xbox 360 power button, and we got an Error message appearing on the TV screen "System error" also might occur with any error code like E66, E67, E68, E71, E74 or E77, all the same.

When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.

So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.

If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.

The Xbox 360 console might even keep giving you the same error code even after you remove the hard drive so it will then appear to be a fault with your Xbox 360 console not the hard drive & also in a case like this we need to contact Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the console.

My son has an xbox 360 with an xbox Live account it works fine except when he tries to go online from his friends houses apparently it comes up There's a problem with the credentials your using to sign in...


Hi. This must be the router password that xbox is trying to connect. Your home routers password is basically saved to your xbox logon credentials. If the xbox will connect to another wireless router and sees that the password he knows is not the password that was save inside the console then you will be getting that error message. Solution is type the password of your sons friends router then this will solve the issue.

Xbox 360 not working


Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX if you see red rings around the power light.  If you just bought it 7 months ago, it is still under warranty.  Do not use one of the custom shops who say they will fix the red ring errors as this will void your warranty with Microsoft.
