Make sure the vents on the back and the bottom are not clogged and make sure the fan in the back is coming on. If you're a smoker then the dust and smoke build up in the machine blocking air flow. It happens a lot. If this is not the case and the unit is under warrenty send it in.

Also, try and notice if this only happens with certain games. When you say it shuts off does the power completely fail or does the red or amber light come on?

Why do I get an error code when trying to download a game to my Wii Memory?

Any time I have tried to download from Nintendo Shopping channel, I have gotten an error for one of a few reasons. 1. No Internet Connection. 2. Slow Connection, 3. Connection Drop. or 4. operating system error.

If you provide the error code or look it up on Nintendos website, it usually gives your some hints to fix your issue.

However, here are the most common:
1. This is usually because the WII console is not connecting to the router or getting an IP address. If could also mean your router has lost its connection to the internet (easily checked with any other computer).

2. This is usually due to congestion (per Nintendo) in your area. They say to try changing your channel for the router. I think Nintendo recommends 6 or 11 but it depends on how many people in near you use wireless.

3. This can be a number of things. This time of year, you typically have problems accessing/downloading things from Nintendo just because a lot of people are trying. However, I have wireless N and the WII is wireless G; I have found that sometimes causes drops. Wireless N is constantly trying to get the best signal and sometimes changes channels (at least mine does), this can cause G to drop sometimes. I went to a wired solution, it helps in online play.

4. I have not seen this one of late. But when WII first came out, an update disabled WII connect and Nintendo had to replace the unit.

Nintendo Wii keeps on turning itself off? I thought it was the fuse on the plug but it isn't. It overheats and cuts out after an hour and half.

should you play a game for more than 90 minutes i mean its a prety new system and still fixing ''klinks'' and stuff so respect that you can even play it.

The screen goes blank, wii emits buzzing noise.

refrain from playing for a few days.

its what you call a black screen of death. it will keep happening until your wii stops if you dont refrain from playing for a while and obey the health/safety rules (sometimes the wiis pass becuase the health/safety rules hide the bsod) [health/safety rules: take a ten - minute break every hour.] BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR WII IT IS VERY FRAGILE IF IT GETS A BSOD!!!!!!! {fragile=easily damaged INTERNALLY}

Wii shutting down

If you are having to unplug the power supply then your powersupply is faulting out. Try a new location to plug it in and see if that fixes it. If so have the voltage checked at the outlet on your wall. If this doesn't fix it replace the power supply. LMK if you need one and I can help you with getting one at a discounted price.

It won't work

I'm getting a similar error. I put in every wii game I own, and every single game had a black error message screen with white text informing me to remove the disk + turn off the power. However, for some odd reason my gamecube games work, as does Okami and Mario Kart Wii.

I will admit I've been incessantly resetting my wii since I'm recording a speedrun, and sometimes let the wii move + shake a lot, though this doesn't explain why 2/10 of my wii games are still working when all the discs are in similar condition.
