Wii games that worked fine could have future problems

Hi ,

My modded wii was working fine. But recently i noticed that everytime my wii tries to read a game disc i get an awkward clicking sound as the disc rotates/loads and then have a black screen that says "remove the disc and turn off the console". I don´t know what is going wrong, all the disks are clean, it just can´t run the same burned games as before. What do i do to fix the problem? Does unmodded wii also have the same problems?

    I have the same problem only it is only with the sports CD that came with
    the unit. All the other gamesI have work fine. Cheap Japanese ****.

    thanks for the solution,

    I didn´t update the wii and none of the games ask me for update. I have a d2pro installed, what kind of recent modification do u recomend?. it is true that the more you play the pirated games the more likely they will eventually become unreadeable?

    Ok, so how does one go about removing a modification from a Wii?
    Like I said, all my other store bought from Target games work fine.
    It is ONLY the Sports game that came with the Wii unit that the unit
    does not see/cannot load
    What games install a modification?

It is possible that you updated your Wii with a new firmware that was available on one of the game disks. Some modifications do not work anymore after a firmware update. So it might be possible that you have an older modification that Nintendo overrides with a new installed firmware.
It is almost sure that when you remove the modification completely, your Wii is working fine. If so, install a recent modification that is immune for these firmware tricks, dor example the D2Sun

    Please read the forum on d2sun. There is an issue with mod's and interference.

The Nintendo wii u won't take my band new game

have you modded your wii (to play games of a usb port or play copied games)?
Softmodding or Hardmodding both come with the risk that future games may not work IF the game comes with security checks for the presence of such mods.

If your wii is NOT modded, it may be remedied by connecting to the internet and downloading updates to your wii.
If your wii IS modded, then do NOT attempt the above as you may brick it.
If none of the above apply, try the game on a neighbour/friend's (unmodded) wii..if it still doesn't work - exchange the game from the place of purchase.

Brought wii game it was sent from usa and my wii console isnt playing it

It could be a backup game. If all your other games work fine you will have to take that one back or return it. Your other option would be to get your wii modded and use a hard drive to backup games. has free mods on it's site.

Everytime i turn on my nintendo wii an error message occurs

This usually means the Wii was modified to play other region games and Nintendo has locked it out. In other words, the mod used no longer works and will need removed or replaced.

While holding down the reset button, turn on the power to the Wii. If a menu comes up then your Wii has been modified and won't work again until the mod is removed, assuming if it can be removed.

There is a decent blurb about it here, including instructions for users of Homebrew Channel and Loadmii. I neither use or endorse use of these modifications as it is against Nintendo's AUP/Service Agreement.

My wii scratched my brand new game, what should i do ?

This is the exaclty the same thing that happends to the xbox 360.. if your wii scratched your game while it was standing vertical, put your wii on its side. if it scratched it while it was on side put it vertical. If your game doesnt work anymore and you have scratch warranty on this game, id return it soon as you can. Or get the game fixed. but if it still works, i have the same problem with my wii but the game still works fine in the future.

Going to the states will there games play on my wii here also my son working over there thought he could send the games home for presents if they work

Yes their games will play fine on your Wii, and yes you can send games home. Wii systems sold here only work in Canada, US and South America.
Now if you were trying to do that with a Japan game, they have a different region code then us (Canada, US) So if you wanted to play Japan games on a Canadian/United States Wii you would have to install a mod chip for that to work.

HI. Recently i found a game online that i have been looking for for ages. The Game is skies of arcadia. I bought it from the USA (ebay)and it will not work on either my nintendo wii or nintendo gamecube....

You might need to mod it... which may be costly if you dont do it yourself.. otherwise its a region locked game and you wont be able to play it!

Denon 3808ci won't upconvert old video game consoles

Since the games are so old and the SNES is an ancient console most tv's are made for the newer ones/Wii, Xbox, ETc./ So The Tv May Require Certain Wires for the console to function correctly, it also may be that your wires for the SNES are corroding in side *( Copper Wires Etc. )
