For us, this only happens when we play "Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars". The Wii freezes up and the controller shakes, vibrates and buzzes. I can take the batteries out of the controller and that stops the shaking, vibrating and buzzing, but the wii is frozen until it's reset (unplugged from the wall in our case).
We've had the Wii for about three years and this is the first time it has ever done this. We play a lot of other games and have never seen this.
So I believe it's either a software bug in the Lego game or it's a software bug in the Wii Operating System.
There is most likely a hardware issue with the Wii. Something in the Wii is dying. Issues like this can only be fixed by sending the Wii to Nintendo (after calling them) or finding a local store with a specialist who has experience taking apart and fixing Wiis.
The reason of the problem might be (Because of the game you say makes it happen) because of overheating. Be sure that the Wii is ventilated enough, make sure that the air entrances and exits are not blocked in anyway, if you have a cooler, make sure it's plugged in correctly. Also, try not playing the game for extended periods of time. Also make sure that the console is balanced so that when it reads the Disc, the motor won't make the console "dance". If the problems persist or you don't think it's an overheating problem, then you'll have to take it to repair, you can try and open it yourself and see if something is making the Optical Drive stop or get jammed, but you could void your guarantee or mess up your Wii for good. Open it and check it ONLY if you have some sort of knowledge in electronics or computer hardware.
Same Problem.. I have wii softmod. Never had any problems, except the black ops loading screen freeze, which I fixed.. Now, when I play multiplayer, team deathmatch, it freezes with a loud buzzing sound in mid battle.. Some 1 help please!!!
You should make sure your disks are not scratched. You are able to turn the wii off without removing the the lead thing. Just hold the power button for a while on the counsle until it shuts off. Just out of curiousity.......and maybe a thing.........because this happened to me.........it froze because i entered a cheat and skipped to much in the game, but when i went back and did it the real way, it didn't freeze.

If it just does it for that game at that point, he game might be defective or have a scratch or something... Generally though, to prevent the Wii from freezing up, make sure it has plenty of airflow and its fans aren't covered up. Even still, if you play it for a very long period of time it can overheat and freeze.
