Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Bought and downloaded games from Wii Shop, got audio, no visual

Just bought Mario 1 and 2 through WiiShop and internet browers.

Browser works fine, but both Mario games only have audio. Controls are fully functional, i can hear myself jumping and dying.

Only time I get a visual is when I hit the home button and I see it in the background.

other than that, screen is all black. But, when pressing home, the menu does come up.

Any thoughts or ideas?

I emailed Nintendo, but, "due to high volume of emails, please expect a few days for us to reply"

You just need to go back in and re download the games again. Sometimes that happens, either that or you won't even be able to play at all. Just go back into the WII shop and go to the recently downloaded and click on re download. That will fix it. Good luck. Let me know if this was helpful.

Hello.

Here is what it says in Nintendo Wii SHop:

Some newer-model televisions may have difficulty properly displaying some Virtual Console games downloaded from the Wii Shop Channel. If you are experiencing problems (such as a blank screen but you can hear the game's audio), please try the following:
    Try changing the way your Wii console is connected to your television. For instance:
    • If the Wii console is connected to a VCR or cable box, try connecting the Wii directly to the TV (how to).
    • If the Wii console is connected to the TV directly, try connecting it to a VCR (how to).
    • If possible, try connecting to another TV.

    If any of the above are successful, it is recommended you use the connection that works. If the Virtual Console game still did not display properly after trying different connection types, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.

Can we play gamecubegames inside the wii console, if so how?


You can do both. With internet you can download Nintendo 64 games on the wii shop channel. For game cube games enter the controller in slot one, enter the game and it's like you don't have a wii!

Note: due to the fact the the wii remote does not have enough buttons ALL N-64 games need a gamecube controller or a classical controller. Game Cube games are not compatible with classical controllers.
