SOURCE: its saying if i don't want to accept an upgrade i

Usually the upgrades are a good thing as they may contain new features or bug fixes, To accept the upgrade you MUST have a connection to the internet, All its saying is the upgrade is optional, you dont have to install it but they recommend it, and unless you have altered things with the hardware you should be fine :)

SOURCE: my wii is showing error 003 "unauthorized device

Hi,

Sounds a hacked Wii. When you updated the firmware found the hack and now your Wii may be bricked.
You can try this: While holding down the reset button, turn on the power to the Wii. If a menu comes up then your wii is definitely hacked but it has a brick safety program to get you out of it. If nothing happens then you may be out of luck.



Good luck.

Wii error code 003


Hello
Try this.

The code itself will appear on a customer's screen usually after firmware is upgraded. The screen will become blank with a message of "Error 003: unauthorized device has been detected". The system also notes the error is due to memory, data, or save related issues and provides a phone number to call for assistance.
There is a technique one can use to try to "break" back into the system. This may be accomplished by holding down the reset button while at the same time turning on the power. A menu should appear on the screen with an option to run a brick safety program that can restore device functionality. Keep in mind, though, that this has only worked with modded consoles

The wii stopped function after it was connected to Internet . Since then it has been showing on the TV screen" Error 003, unauthorised device detected


If you Wii has been modded (modified) to play burned games or games from other regions and it picked up a software update from the Internet, this can happen.
This typically happens upgrading from 4.1 to 4.2.
If you have not modded the box, you can try to contact Nintendo for repair.
If you did the mod, look at something like http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-issues-only/33029-guide-how-fix-korean-4-2-error-003-unauthorized-device-has-been-detected.html
for possible recovery tricks.

Error 003 , unauthorized device has been detected


Sounds like you accidentally bought a hacked Wii. When you upgrade the firmware found the hack and now your Wii may be bricked. Try this: while holding down the reset button, turn on the power to the Wii. If a menu comes up then your wii is definitely hacked but it has a brick safety program to get you out of it. If nothing happens then you may be out of luck. Since you bought from Korea and it still allows you to play it in America then there is a good chance that your Wii is modded. I would say return it to the person you got it from but that seems to be out of the question.

Everytime i turn on my nintendo wii an error message occurs


This usually means the Wii was modified to play other region games and Nintendo has locked it out. In other words, the mod used no longer works and will need removed or replaced.

While holding down the reset button, turn on the power to the Wii. If a menu comes up then your Wii has been modified and won't work again until the mod is removed, assuming if it can be removed.

There is a decent blurb about it here, including instructions for users of Homebrew Channel and Loadmii. I neither use or endorse use of these modifications as it is against Nintendo's AUP/Service Agreement.

Error:003 Unauthorized device has been detected


where did you get your Wii? did you buy this on the internet? did you mod the wii with a mod chip?

this usually comes from the wii menu/firmware 4.2 update which throws this error when it finds a modchip or region converted wii that came from another country like korea and was change to the region for the USA
