Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Console fell and now front cover is broken and apart

The front cover tabs are broken and won't stay on unit, the red wire is broken in two, a little plug is off and 1 tiny board is loose in there. Can you buy a replacement front cover complete with electronics? We live in Ontario Canada if there is a place that sells such things.

    actually the little boards are only to light up the disc slot so we took them out and taped on the cover as the tabs were broken and the wii works just fine.

My remotes were synced to another wii how do I re-sync them?

Step by step instructions on how to sync the Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus to the Wii console using Standard Mode.


Only a Wii Remote in Standard Mode can turn the Wii console power ON or OFF.

What to Do:

  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
  2. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. If you are using a Wii mini, the sync button is located left hand side next to the battery compartment. The sync button is a darker shade of red than the console.
  3. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to be synced.
    • Some models of the Wii Remote include a hole in the battery cover and a tool on the wrist strap to push the SYNC Button with. With this model, the battery cover does not need to be removed to access the SYNC button.
  4. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED on the front of the Wii Remote will blink. While the lights are still blinking, quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the Wii console.
  5. When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
  6. This sync procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.

Wii Remote lights blink, but don't stay on

Your remote either needs to be re-synced to your wii or batteries are dead.

if you have replaced the batteries then click on the red button inside the battery cover and then press the red button under the small cover by the sd card slot on the front of the unit under the cover should sync up again.

When powreing up green light breifly comes on, then it goes to flashing red. a couple times it has powered up and been ok.

This is somewhat common AKA (Yellow light of death)
The console will become less and less dependable
as time goes on.

The primary cause is fractured solder joints under
the G.P.U. and some times the C.P.U. The fix is to
have both chips reflowed (resoldered) and a little
tweaking of the hold down bracket to insure it
stays connected.

Average cost 100.00-125.00
Sony cost 140.00+ a little high.

If you have any questions fell free to ask.

My wii remote wont work !!!!!!! I turned on my wii and it said to push A on your wii remote and I did and the four little light things just blink and shut off !!! What do I do ?

1. Take the battery cover off from the back of the wiimote. Look for a little red button. 2. On the front of the nintendo wii console open the little door that covers the SD slots. Look for another red button.3. Press both red buttons, it does not have to be at the exact same time, but within about 2-3 seconds.

PS2 was dropped, now disc won't spin and can't be read.

I just looked at a friend's PS2. Same story, tripped over cord, unit fell to floor. Unit powers up and sys. config. screen comes on but the drive didn't seem to be spinning up. Opened the case and found that the shaft of the drive motor for the laser tray had popped out of it's centering retainer ( little black bushing/holder). With the top off the unit, looking at the unit from the front, on the right side in the rear corner you'll see the motor. The worm shaft (bronze colored rod) runs towards the front of the unit. Where it ends it should sit centered in a black plastic holder, if it's off to the side a little pressure will pop it back in. Put the cover back on, and power it up, you should hear the drive spinning up. If it does you should be set. Hope this helps.

Disk will not read

Chances are the tab from the top of the door of your console has broken off. It is a very simple problem to fix. It is either the one at the front just behind the power/reset button or the one at the back just behind the little tab that holds your disc in place and stops it from spinning while your door is open. Open up your console... there are three small holes at the front... two are at the very front and one is on the right side and a bit smaller that is one of the ones that may be missing a tab. Look at the underside of the door... is there a tab directly above that hole if so then it is not that one, if it is not there, simply glue it back on or use something small and about have the size of the two tabs at the front to synthesize it. If it is there look at the back behind the thing that stops your disc from spinning and see if the tab on the top is missing from there and if it is do the same for if it was missing from the front only make it twice as long as the tabs in front. Hope this helped
