Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii My Wii powers off everytime I put in a game disc

My Wii will set up fine, and everything appears Ok. But when I put in a game disc (regular Wii game, including the one that comes with the package), it powers itself off (light turns red). If I turn it back on, it will flash green a few seconds and power off again. The games never starts. What is the problem here?

I had the same situation. I solved it by making sure the grey power cord for the wii was plugged in right and that it was plugged into a transformer. In the end the problem was that the wii was just not getting enough power. It doesn't exactly explain why the wii turned off every time I put a game in but at least I got the wii to work.

Wii wont read disks


Well it sounds like the disc drive and the laser that reads the discs is either weak or has gone bad then so so it will need to be replaced then. If the discs look fine then it's the disc drive gone bad

Wii Keeps rejecting game disc


I would suggest simply returning the disc to the retailer. It is very possible that there is nothing wrong with the wii but the disc is bad. If the disc works for the retailer or you get an exchange and have the same problem, it may suggest the drive in the wii is faulty. This should be covered under warranty and even if the machine is over a year old, shouting loud enough may convince Nintendo to fix it FOC. Call for a warranty claim and see how you get on.

Hi currently living back at folks and have an annoying brother who keeps using my computers and game consoles he just broke 1tb harddrive and lost all data so i need to password protect everything is there...


Advice pinched from:
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080119210336AAlIA7q

To put a password on your Wii,
Go to wii Options>Wii Settings
push the + button, and click parental Controls
Click yes and make a 4 digit pin number that's easy for you to remember, but nothing that someone could easily guess. (like the year you 1st joined a team or something) push OK, enter it again and push ok.
Choose a secret question, like what they ask you to choose when you start a new account somewhere (mother's maiden name, your place of birth, etc.) push ok and type in the answer to that question and push ok.
click "game settings and PIN" and (finally) to block one from playing games, change the "highest game rating allowed" option to something low (preferably early childhood so one wont be able to play ANY games without your permission) by pushing the down icon. hit ok, confirm, and "settings complete".

when you go to play a game, it will ask for the PIN everytime, which will eventually be a pain in the neck, but at least you'll know your games are safe

My wii doesnt turn on properly


I would format your memory, then turn everything off, but make sure to take out your game disc. Then unplug the wii for about 30 minutes. Plug it back in then start up your consol. If it happens again call Nintendo.

Can not read disc


If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide

Wii will do everything but it won't play games.....


I had the same problem. No new games would play but the old games played fine. I clicked on the spinning disc icon (where the game should come up) and it prompted me to do an update. I accepted. Once the update was complete (took about a minute or 2) the new games worked fine.
