My wii just dies when i leave it alone for 15 seconds.
My wii just dies when i leave it alone for only 15 seconds. Nintendo says it is either unliscenced a/c adapter or overheating. So i check the adapter, it is nintendo, and i reset it. Then i get a fan for the wii and make sure nothing can block the vents. I clean the whole thing with a can that sprays air for computers and (suprise!) it still happens. What the heck!!!! >:( HELP!

You said "My wii just dies when i leave it alone for only 15 seconds. Nintendo says it is either unliscenced a/c adapter or overheating. So i check the adapter, it is nintendo, and i reset it.

Most likely there is a hardware problem, If your waranty is still intact then you can contact nintendo and they will most likely send you a new console.

Hi there, this information comes straight from Nintendo's website. Anything I'd be typing would basically be repeating what comes from Nintendo directly:
Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into the wall outlet.
Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process described below.
After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the batteries.
Press and release the small red button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the Wii Remote will blink.
Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture).
When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
Try these solutions:
1.Check the disc it might be scratched.
2.Look at the thick Nintendo booklet that comes with the Wii under "troubleshooting"
3.Hold the Wii power button down until the light turns red and leave it alone for a few hours(this can only be done while the Wii is on)
4.Ask a resident Best Buy or Gamestop or EB Games worker about your problem.
5.Go to nintendo.com and look around for answers
Hope these help!
Make sure you have paired both remotes to your Wii console. Open the little door on the front of the Wii (under the disc slot), and open the battery cover of the Wii remote (but leave the batteries in).
Push the red button on the Wii (next to the SD card slot), then push the red button on the Wii remote (next to the batteries). You should see the Wii remote's lights blink.
Do the same for your other Wii remote.
Now on the bottom row of 4 lights on the Wii remote, one should have the first light lit, and the other should have the second light lit. You should also be able to see a cursor for each remote on the Wii Menu.
