Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Freezing and then making a buzzing sound

Sometimes loads up to main menu, will go to start of game and then freezes. A buzzing sound happens and not able to switch the wii off by the power button. The reset button also does not work and have to take the lead out from the back to clear it. This happens with all games including the sports package.

    I have a same problem. I don't use any cheats and I haven't progressed very far in my games yet. You can hold the power button to turn the Wii off, but the reset button fails. My games are not scratched, but they were cleaned just in case. It happens about 20mins to half an hour into all my games. It just freezes and makes a high pitched buzzing sound. Is there a fix?

    The game will load fine until past the introductions and then the image will freeze on the screen and a buzzing sound begins. I cannot power the WII off with the power button or reset button and must resort to unplugging the unit. The game disk is clean and clear of any scratches.

You should make sure your disks are not scratched. You are able to turn the wii off without removing the the lead thing. Just hold the power button for a while on the counsle until it shuts off. Just out of curiousity.......and maybe a thing.........because this happened to me.........it froze because i entered a cheat and skipped to much in the game, but when i went back and did it the real way, it didn't freeze.

My wii keeps freezing up in middle of playing black ops and making a loud buzzing sound, how can I fix it?


It can be one of 2 things. Make sure its not getting to hot. Keep the vents clean. Make sure the game disk is not scratched or damaged in any way. If it only happens on that one game in the same spot its most likely the cd.

The Wii picture is freezing, and there is a loud buzzing sound. It happens with any game played at randum times, also when we are watching netflix streaming. It happens speraticly at no set time interval....


There is most likely a hardware issue with the Wii. Something in the Wii is dying. Issues like this can only be fixed by sending the Wii to Nintendo (after calling them) or finding a local store with a specialist who has experience taking apart and fixing Wiis.

Freezing


for freezing problems... try to move your system away from areas that are often hot, blocking the vents, or blocking air movement. the main culprit for freezing issues is over heating. if your system becomes too hot it will flash green and red where your power button is. so if your having trouble with that problem follow those steps.
