Sounds like an IOS is corrupt. I would contact Nintendo if within their 1 year warranty" or if you have bought an extending warranty at time of buying the Wii and still within that warranty. The files will need to be re-installed onto your Wii. Does the Wii actually power on after this message is shown on-screen? Or does it just power down/ have you power down Wii?

I'm trying to get netflix through my WII, and its telling me "not available in my region". what does that mean ?

Sorry to hear your having problems with your wii. It means that the region that you purchased your wii is not of USA or Canada. You can fix this from this information from Nintendo:
"Did you receive the message: "The Wii Shop Channel is not currently available in your region?"If you see this message when you try to access the Wii Shop Channel, then it appears your Wii console is set to the wrong region. To fix this:
  1. Select "Wii Options" in the lower-left corner of the Wii Menu.
  2. Select "Wii Settings" and click the right arrow twice to reach "Wii System Settings 3."
  3. Select "Country," and use the down arrow to scroll down the list, then select "United States" or "Canada."
  4. You will be informed that you will need to accept the User Agreements. To do this, select "User Agreements," click "Next," and "I Accept."
  5. Select "OK", and try accessing the Wii Shop Channel again."
This is from:
I hope this helps!

After turning it on and pressing button A on start up screen I'm getting a message that the software has been corrupted. What do I do?

Rent a game that provides a firmware update. When you insert the game before hitting that screen it should install the firmware and overwrite whatever corrupt data on your system.
Any new Nintendo brand game should do it. Wii Mario Kart is a recent one. A Wii Motion Plus game should do it as well.

There is a variety of problems in the wii that carry that same message. This thread solves one problem by deleting any large messages in your wii. You might also want to update your firmware in your Wii by going to the settings on your wii and checking there. If the problem is still there, then you unfortunately have to send in your Wii for repair.

Hope everything works out for you : )

My wii works but my controler dosent show up on the screen but the buttons work i need help

I don't know about the Wii but I know what happens with the light on the Wii

Green - The Wii Console is on

Yellow - You are connected to Wiiconnect24. It's harsh not to keep the "Yellow" light on because it could overheat the Wii Console. So if it's "Yellow", put your finger on the "Power" Button and keep it there for a long time. When you push it, it will start with Yellow then turn to Green then keep the finger there for a while then will turn to Red

Red - The Wii Console is off

Blue - You are connected to Wiiconnect24. When it turns Blue, It means you are getting a message from the Wii Console or on Standby Mode

When console is turned off the light is glows yellow instead of red.

Yellow just means that it's on standby. If there's a new message or there's an update, your Wii will start blinking blue.

If you want to turn it completely off, just go to the Wii menu, Click the Wii icon (Options), then click Wii settings, click the right arrow to get to Wii System Settings 2, then click on Wii Connect 24, then click on Standby Connection, then click off.

Don't worry about the heat. It's normal when you have it on standby.

Hi, bought a second hand wii for Christmas so don't know how old it is, bought FIFA 10 for youngest boy but it won't play on wii, a black screen comes up with a message to turn off power & refer to...

Try to play music cd's and other games to see if the Wii will read anything. Make sure the discs are clean as well. If the Wii is still not playing anything then that means the drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

I just put the internet on my wii and now when i turn my wii off the light is yellow, not red, and the area where you put the disc in keeps blinking blue.

This is because you have wiiconnect24 turned on. wiiconnect24 keeps your wii in a standby mode so that you can receive messages when you are not playing the wii. When the disc tray is blinking blue this means you have a new message. If you want to turn wiiconnect24 off go into the wii settings menu then wiiconnect24. If you just want to turn the wii off fully then when you want to turn the wii off hold the power button on the wii down until it turns red.
