    repair was free, it was still under warranty...i think there is a warranty for one year although i bought an extra 2 year warranty in any case before the work on your wii they will e-mail you about the costs, unless your under warranty

How do you bypass the wii update to play the gmaes


The simplest thing to do is to use StartPatch, if your Wii is running System Menu 4 or higher, or StarFall if you're running System Menu 3.2. (To check your system menu version, go to you Wii Settings; the version number will be on the upper right.)
These applications can apply various modifications to your Wii, including one that will allow you to play import games and another that turns off the annoyingly repetitive system menu background music. There is also a modification that prevents the Wii from checking to see whether a game disk includes a system update. If you use StartPatch/StarFall to install this modification, you will no longer have game disks insisting on updating before you can play them.
It should be noted that these applications, since they rewrite your system flash memory, can be considered somewhat dangerous.

You can play it safer with Gecko OS, which lets you play import and update-insistent games without altering flash memory. It has been found that at least one game, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Gecko fails on.

My wii won't play the new wii games.Need to know how to upgrade?It will play the older wii games.


hi there,
the best and easiest way to upgrade the firmware on your wii is to connect the wii to your internet and look for system update in the system settings and update that way. Altthough most games that need newer firmware come with the update installed on the disc, normally once you insert the disc it will tell you it need to update the system firmware in order for the game to work, so i'm not sure why this is not happening for you if your new games not playing. The only thing i can think of if it's not updating automatically is that the wii has been chipped/modded in some way, has it? If it has'nt just connect the wii to the internet you should be able to update it that way.
Hope that helps

System won't play new games - system up date failed


Try updating your Wii in the Settings menu, you will have to have a Wifi connecting to do this. If you do not have WiFi in your house can update your console via a New Release Wii Game such as Mario Kart

Most new games like Mario Kart or Madworld must have the 4.0 update to be played

hope this helps you some, please rate this solution
