My Wii won't play Game cube games

I got a Wii 2 weeks ago and it's been working fine. When I play Wii games it works great but, when I play Game Cube games it shuts off about 5 to 10 min into the game And then it shows a no signal up on the screen. Please help. At first we thought it was the disc but, I went to the store ad traded for a new one and it did the same thing. Will I have to replace it?

It sounds like there is something wrong with the wii that may not be an easy fix, it could be that some games do not work well with the wii, in that case try another gc game and if it still happens that is not the issue, the no signal msg is from the tv and has nothing to do with the wii, if you are not able to play any gc games, as dumb as it sounds, call nintendos support line, its a free number or go online and they will probably tell you to call them in the end of the trouble shooting guide, they actually have amazing support for their products, I purchased a wii on ebay and thought i had a bad power supply, they sent a new one for free, wasnt the problem but still if it needs replaced they most likely will replace it and not charge you anyhting , since the issue is with the console you may incur some charge or be required to prove it was purchased new or something like that but an issue like this is not easily solved by anyone without the training to do so.

Your wii may require updates to the latest software if this dos'nt work you should try and return it to get your money back and go to a different store.

Are you using the default cable that came with the wii to connect it up to your TV. i have a smililar problem, Virtual Console games dont work on my console and i get the "no signal" message on my tv. but this was only after, i started using a madcatz component cable. before that i used the default cable and they worked fine.

Will the Nintendo Wii control work with the Game Cube games? I can't find a button to play the game. I am trying to play Ratatouille on the Game Cube with a Wii control.


Well that depends if your trying to play gamecube games on the gamecube or the wii?, i assume your doing it on the wii because anyone would know that a wii control wouldn't work on a gamecube, not impossible, just very hard

wii remotes do work with the nintendo wii on wii games and on gamecube games, but it is better if you use a gamecube controller and plug it into the to holes under the flap, pictured below, hopefully.

I bought the dance dance revolution 2 for the wii. When she steps on the pad to choose a game, it works. But when she starts to play the game, the pad wont work. What are we doing wrong?


Are you either using konami mat or game cube mat? If you're using game cube mat, then make sure you're putting it in the first player plug and konami, make sure it's player 1.

Otherwise, your mat is bad and you should call the company to get a refund!

Game Cube remotes for Wii


Hi, on the top of the Wii will be a hidden flap which conceals 4 gamecube controller ports. You will need to buy a memory card which there are two slots for that to store the games. Gamecube memory cards are quite cheap and you can pick them up for between £2 to £10. Hope that helps.

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.
