Try these solutions:
1.Check the disc it might be scratched.
2.Look at the thick Nintendo booklet that comes with the Wii under "troubleshooting"
3.Hold the Wii power button down until the light turns red and leave it alone for a few hours(this can only be done while the Wii is on)
4.Ask a resident Best Buy or Gamestop or EB Games worker about your problem.
5.Go to nintendo.com and look around for answers
Hope these help!

Hello
Please try the below mentioned process to troubleshoot the issue.
  1. Set the Wii console to output 480 lines of video.


  2. While on the Wii Channel Menu (main screen of the Wii), connect a Nunchuk to Wii Remote.


  3. Select the Virtual Console game from the Wii menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.


  4. When the game starts, press the Home button on the Wii Remote. (In many games, the music can be heard when the game starts.)


  5. Select "Operations Guide" from the Home menu.


  6. Press the Z + A + 2 Button simultaneously (the Z Button is on the Nunchuk). A sound will be heard if the button combination has been entered correctly.


  7. Close the Home menu. The game display should now be correct.

Display problems while playing Virtual Console games


If you are experiencing display issues (dim, blank or half-blank screen, ghosted image, etc.) with a Virtual Console game while using the Component Video Cable, please read the following:
Some Virtual Console games default to displaying 240 lines of video. Some HD TV's are unable to display a signal with only 240 lines. Try the steps below to set the Wii to output 480 lines of video, which may solve the problem:
  1. While on the Wii Channel Menu (main screen of the Wii), connect a Nunchuk to Wii Remote.
  2. Select the Virtual Console game from the Wii menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
  3. When the game starts, press the Home button on the Wii Remote. (In many games, the music can be heard when the game starts.)
  4. Select "Operations Manual" from the Home menu.
  5. Press the Z + A + 2 Button simultaneously (the Z Button is on the Nunchuk). A sound will be heard if the button combination has been entered correctly.
  6. Close the Home menu. The game should now display correctly. Note: You will not have to do this the next time you play, as the Wii console will remember these settings.
If the Virtual Console game is still not displaying properly, but all other games work fine, please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

I got a NES (finally) but i got a problem. when i start it up with (for example) zelda i can select a save, in other words when I push the up or the down button it does nothing. But when i press start to...


The reason it doesn't work in the menu is because it doesn't use the D-pad (the plus-shaped button that you use to move around). To go through the menu options, you need to press the Select button (that's the left of the two small buttons in the center of the controller). Many games use that to select menu options instead of the D-pad.

After pressing the audio button on my psp the screen would go black and white from bottom to top then would go back to normal what i tried is to take out the memory card and tr to press the audio...


Hi, I've had the same problems for about a month now. I have a psp fat (psp-1000) with cfw. 5.50. I was playing ZHP unlosing ranger when the same thing happened.
I use the lowest brightness setting to lengthen game play time. I keep using the audio button (The one you hold and turns the sounds mute or back.. right?) for the game then when i reset my game (press home and start the gameover..) the brightness suddenly keeps on changing even making the whole screen black. After 5 minutes? it stops but then when i press the down or square, triangle button the brightness changes sometimes thats the only thing the button does.. i found a temporary fix for this, i put it sleep mode then turn it on again and it stops.. the buttons go back to normal, for a while.
It goes on and on even with other games. It just stops after 10 minutes later or more than starts happening again everytime the brightness or audio button is pressed.
We scanned it for viruses on a computer and it just kept on blinking everytime it responded to the scan. No virus were found but after that when we disconnected it from the computer the brightness problem stopped for a good long time.. we avoided pressing the brightness and audio buttons. but recently its happening again.
and now just got worse. I was playing Socom Fireteam, and when you accidentaly go to the start menu, you have to press "select" to exit and continue the game. But the "select" button wont work!
so i quit the game and startover.. when this happened for the 3rd time. When i pressed "home" button and was asked if i really wanted to exit the game i couldnt move to "yes" and couldnt press the "O" or "X" buttons.
So i turned off my psp and when it went back on, I couldnt press anything anymore. except, the volume buttons and select (the vsh menu appears)
I searched for help from the internet, found "disable your vsh menu" remedy.
It worked! but when i played the game, the "cwcheat" menu keeps on appearing (seplugin that appears when you press select button). It wouldnt stop >.<
So we disabled that too.
Now playing God of War Ghost of Sparta, and one part, the start menu kept on appearing! we'd close it so that we could push one of the levers in the game but then it pauses the game again.. it stopped after a while. then it happened again only slight.
Found a comment on a "select button problem" and it said that it was the:
"parts that were Ribbon style, with it was the start and select button and the volume/sound" he had that parts?
found same problems around the net, some posts from 2009.
found decent posts and solutions here:
http://forums.qj.net/psp-general-help/151111-psp-slim-start-button-stuck.html
the best one says buy a new "flex bar" or "home bar". It goes by many names, but it's the metal bar that has all of the bottom row buttons on it (home -> start) It's usually under $10 USD and obviously the right thing to do.
got another comment that says it worked from him when he bought one himself.
Glad I found others, and that I could share this.. wish it makes things better.
Hope it works out for all of us!
Another thing, Merry Christmas!

I forgot my password for my psp now i cant use it what can i do?


Hello gracielarobl

You will need to restore the default settings. To do this, follow the following instructions:

STEP 1

From the XMB home menu, go to Settings > System Settings > Restore Default Settings

STEP 2

The message "Do you want to restore default settings?" should appear. Select "Yes", and press the "X" button.

STEP 3

You will then see a message, "All settings will be returned to default settings. Are you sure you want to continue?". Select "Yes" and press the "X" button.

STEP 4

All settings are now restored and the system password is reset to "0000".

STEP 5

Press the "X" button to re-start the system.

STEP 6

Re-enter system settings as appropriate.

N.B. The Restore Default Settings feature will erase any previously saved settings and restore all the settings to default.

Hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to contact me should you require any further assistance.

Psp ( i cant get games to play )


Have you inserted the game disc UMD into the PSP itself? You have to wait a few seconds after you turn it on before the game icon will be visible in the main menu screen before you can access the game. When it's active and you have the game icon selected press the "X" button to start the game.
