Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Wii graphics are glitchy

Our Nintendo Wii is out of warrenty and now the graphics are glitchy. The problem starts from the moment the wii is turned on, but is worse with 3d intensive games such as Iron Man or Zelda Twilight Princess. It looks like static streaky vertical lines smeared and overlaid on the screen. The Wii still functions as normal, its just annoying to have this rubbish in the way of the picture. I've since read that about 35% of Wii's have this problem due to a defective graphics chip. Is there anyway to fix this other than to pay Nintendo to fix their own sloppy workmanship?

How do i get amazon prime on my wii system

Make sure your Wii is connected to the Internet. Then, open the Wii Shop Channel and search 'amazon', and it should come up. You won't need any Wii Points to download it. Totally free, after a few moments the channel will be on your system menu. Start it up, log in, and enjoy!
Enter the eShop via the orange shopping bag at the bottom of the GamePad screen. Search 'amazon', and the application should show up in the results. It's completely free, and after the download all you need to do is start it up and log in.

Hope I helped! Have a wonderful day.

Cannot access options on the left hand side of the start screen.

Did she put the DVD in backwards? A normal DVD movie should not affect the Wii system in any way, regardless. If it's still under warrenty, I recommend you back up your save games and Miis, then ship if off to Nintendo using their Repair Order request.
