    Hi, today for the first time it worked! But only for 10 minutes. Zelda worked for a bit, it then froze. I then turned it on but it didnt work. Half an hour later wii sports worked, I played tennis for a bit then the controller disconnected and wouldnt connect. There is a 1/10 chance of it turnign on now but it then freezes. Sometimes I am able to play for a bit but then the controller disconnects. When I ut in gamcbue disks on the menu screen I can see a gamecbue disk. Does this mean its the controller now or the console.

    My wii freezes. This will happen either one of two ways:



    1)When starting a game, the screen goes black, and stays black.



    2)When "browsing" fast, the screen image freezes. In my case, sometimes if you go to the message board, and quickly press all the links to type a message, it'll freeze.

Hi everyone, I just wanted to post a very simple fix for those of you who installed your Wii correctly, had it working fine, but then experienced a sudden all-blank screen (in my case, all blue, which I think is a function of my TV). I read all these alarming threads that made me think my brand new Wii would have to be sent in for repair. I tried resetting it, turning it off and on, unplugging it, etc., all to no avail. Then I unplugged the satellite receiver dish (even though TV was working fine), waited about a minute and plugged it back in. Once the box reset itself, voila, problem solved! I am not a tekkie but for those of us newbies out there, I hope I can help just one person!

This is a solution I found in one of the blogs, it worked fine for me: 1. Connect the Nunchuck to the Wiimote and press Home to see the menu options. 2. Press A + 2 + Z together which should result in a short ?ping-like? sound. 3. You have now activated the interlaced mode. 4. Leave the menu and you should see the normal game screen. 5. To switch back to regular mode use the same method above and press A + 1 + Z. I hope it will work for you! Good luck!!!

    When I pressed Menu I saw the regular menu options. I read some more about the black screen and it seems there are different issues with it, its similar to the red ring of light at the Xbox 360. You might have a serious hardware problem that would need fixing and that's why my solution doesn't work. Try this site it might give you some explanations -http://www.wiierror.com/

    Sorry I can't help you more...

    Hey nr_rules today I came across a solution for a problem that described exactly what you said about the Mii channel. Here is what they suggested:
    1. Eject the disk
    2. Unplug the wii at the back
    3. Wait 1 minute
    4. Plug it back in
    5. Turn it on from the remote
    6. Press reset if it does not show up
    7. Hold the power button to shut it off
    8. Turn it on once more.

    I hope that will do it for you, Good luck

I had forgotten about cable TV...once I disconnected the S-Video that was hooked up to my Input1...I was able to then see the Wii Menu. So...making sure the connections are right is the key.

Thanks!!

SOURCE: Hi, just got a Wii when I forst turned it on it

Assuming you did not tamper with the system (mod it to play burnt games) then that is usually caused by the BlueTooth module not working. It must just be a coincidence with the Mii creation.

If it's under warranty then send it back to Nintendo. They are very quick and very good.

If it's not, you could try replacing the Bluetooth module yourself. I get mine from http://parts.consolerepairguy.com for about $22. I fix consoles so I know that is usually the cause.

Good luck!

I cannot change my profile name from which I accidentally entered wrongly when first played


If you are looking to change to nickname of the console, you need to hit the round "Wii" icon in the lower lefthand corner of the home screen. Then, select "Settings" and an option to rename your Wii should present itself.
If you misnamed a Wii Mii (avatar created to represent yourself) then you must enter the Mii Channel app. Once inside the channel, select the character you misnamed by pressing and holding "A" and "B" at the same time. Drag and drop the Mii to the left to the "Edit Mii" option. The first tab should allow you to rename the Mii as well as give it a birthday and personalize it as a favorite.

Need to delete password protected mii from wii fit.


We had the same problem. Removing the Mii from the Mii Channel kept a generic Mii character in Wii Fit so we still had a problem. After about 3 failed attempts at a password, Wii Fit will ask for a height verification. Start making guesses as to what the person's height is and eventually you will get access and from there you can get into their Profile in Wii Fit and delete them.

How do I delete and add other Mii's


This process only deletes Miis so that you can add new ones,
up to a maximum of 8.

Nintendo provides no advance notice that there is a limit of 8 players.

1. Go to the Wii Fit screen displaying all of your current Miis.
2. Select the Mii you want to delete.
3. Keep hitting the A button to go through all the extraneous jazz-ma-tazz nintendo inflicts upon us
until you come to the calendar page with the options BODY TEST and TRAINING at the bottom.
On this page you will see USER SETTINGS in the upper right-hand corner.
4. Select the USER SETTINGS page (push the A button).
5. Select DELETE USER DATA (push the A button).
6. Select YES to confirm that you want to erase the data.

I found this process very counter-intuitive as it required me to select the Mii that I wanted to delete,
then act as if I were going to use this Mii, before giving me an option to manage the settings for that Mii.

The process for using a memory card to save Miis has been impossible so far.
I purchased a Wii memory card, but cannot figure out how to bring the data from the memory card
back into the Wii Fit game.

Power is on but screen is black


I found this [temporary] solution at http://www.wiierror.com/wii-black-screen.php:

(via email, thanks Steven) This happened to me once, but I fixed it. Here is how:
Eject the disk
Unplug the wii at the back
Wait 1 minute
Plug it back in
Turn it on from the remote
Press reset if it does not show up
Hold the power button to shut it off
Turn it on once more.
I don't know how, but it seemed to work for me. The problem happened when I was trying to load the Mii channel. Hope this helps !

(via email, thanks Andrew)
The first time I shut down my Wii, the light went orange (as it should). When I turned on the power with my wii remote the next day, the wii\'s light turned green but the screen was black.
The treatment was the same as from Black Screen, No Connection: Unplug the Wii\'s power supply unit, then replug; turn system on with wii remote.
The difference is: this problem can strike in more places than just by loading the Mii Channel. Also, I think the green light being on (yet there being a black screen) is a common symptom as well.
