Question about EA Sports G4ME5 PreOrder NBA LIVE 09 Wii Game for Nintendo Wii

The game makes a beeping noise and freezes our screen

Once in a while the game starts making a beeping noise and the Wii screen freezes. You can't get out of the game. You can't turn the Wii off. All we can do is unplug it.

This happened on our Wii system and our friend's, so we don't think it's a problem with our specific system.
We exchanged the game and got a new one. This one is doing it, too.

    The game makes a beeping noise and then freezes the screen. We are unable to power off the Wii - we have to unplug it.

    This happens to us too when playing Tony Hawk Downhill Jam. We just unplug it.

Okay, first off, NEVER unplug your wii, even when it freezes. This may cause it to short out and will make the problem worse. There is a way you can turn the Wii off while it is in the frozen state.
Hold down the power button for a maximum of 15 seconds, and this will kill the power of the wii without damaging it.

Okay, now to fix the problem: The best thing you can try is to reformat your wii. If this doesn't work, then check to see if it's a glitch in the game itself. Because if this problem doesn't happen on other games, then that could be the problem. Check on the web to see if anyone else is having the same delema with that game, then compare problems.

Hopefuly this helped, it's not the best solution but it should work pretty well.

Screen freezes in the middle of playing wii Lego batman

Your game could be defective, but more likely it is scratched. I would clean off the disc and get a scratch removal kit if it still doesn't work.

Once the wii remote is plugged into the udraw game tablet the remote will not function

Make sure that the remote is conencted correctly. Also, you must place the Udraw in the slot after you have bypassed the Main Menu for the Wii. In other words, once the Udraw screen is up. Also, make sure that your batteries are good otherwise you will continually lose the signal. This should solve your problem.

Pad stop working. used for a few minutes with pictionary to create characters - then froze. is there something i need to sync?

Make sure that your sytem is updated. Also, your lens might be dirty. You might need a Wii Lens Cleaner ($10) and this will make all your games run smoothly eliminating freezing.

Aso, make sure that the vents in the back of the Wii are free of debris and are a distance away from any object because if the system overheats it will freeze.

Screen is totally freezing up in the middle of drawing with udraw program

This problem can be easily solved:

1) Your lens (inside the Wii) is probably dirty. Buy a Wii Lens Cleaner for $10 (must be for Wii) and clean your lens. This solved my problem.

2) Make sure that your Wii vents are unobstructed by a wall or dust, debris.

3) Make sure that the disc is free of smudges.

This should solve it. It solved my problem.

I inserted our new WII Udraw disk into the wii. It shows the game disk on the menu. Whenever I click it it still shows the game title. When I press start the screen goes blank and the wii remote shuts...

Make sure that you get a Wii lens cleaner. It sounds like your lens is dirty. the cleaner must be for the Wii. It costs about $10.00.

Also, make sure that your Wii is updated to the latest software.

This should solve your problem.

When i turn the game on, it goes to the loading screen, loads my profile, but when the message box pops up saying "syncronizing nba today. please wait..." it freezes and emits a beeping noise....

go to your Wii settings and turn off the internet so there's no way to get to NBA Today. Then the sychronize part is excluded when you start loading to play.Sorry, but you can't play online though

Game doesn't load

Always start by checking if the disc is dirty. Do other games freeze? Finally, you should be able to exchange the game for the same game.
