When loading GuitarHero3 it did some kind of upgrade. After a couple hours of playing the game, I tried to exit & the system locks up, with a constant tone and frozen screen. Resetting or removing power doesn't get rid of frozen screen. Wii is 3 months old. Help!
Mine does the same in other games, , tones is all u hear, then u have to unplug it and it makes me mad cause it starts over from a chapter that u already went thru, not to say it a bad deal but there time's u have problems getting to a certain level and now u have to redo it all
Our Wii just started doing this yesterday. We got the new Star wars game 'Force Unleashed' and thought it was because of the game (graphics, etc.) but then we put in Blast Works and it did the exact same thing! Very frustrating!
Have to pull the plug to make it stop. Should we box up and send in? Or is there a 'patch' to fix it?

the best and easiest way to upgrade the firmware on your wii is to connect the wii to your internet and look for system update in the system settings and update that way. Altthough most games that need newer firmware come with the update installed on the disc, normally once you insert the disc it will tell you it need to update the system firmware in order for the game to work, so i'm not sure why this is not happening for you if your new games not playing. The only thing i can think of if it's not updating automatically is that the wii has been chipped/modded in some way, has it? If it has'nt just connect the wii to the internet you should be able to update it that way.
Hope that helps
You may have to upgrade the Wii system menu - is their system older than this year? We ahd the same issue this AM with Super Mario and Punch Out - connect your Wii to the internet and then
Just select the System Update option in Wii System Settings. This will update it and then they will work - if these are new games this year - our system was a 3.1 and it has to have the Wii system 4.0 for these newer games. Working fine now - give it a try...
We had the same issue this morning. you have to upgrade the Wii system menu. Look in the front page of the Super Mario Bros instruction bulletin and it tells you to do this. You have to be connected to the internet through your Wii though to do this, but our is now working. The download takes a few minutes but all is good. Hope this helps.
Just select the System Update option in Wii System Settings - just make sure your Wii is connected to the internet.
Unplug everything! There is a "breaker" in the power supply and it may need to be reset. Just unplug all cables from the TV and outlets. Let it sit for a couple hours then plug everything back in and it should work fine. If not then the power supply has shorted out due to a strong power surge. You can claim it under your home owners insurance or call Nintendo and try to get it replaced. Thanks! Good luck and happy gaming!!
ive heard this problem is common, the disc is dohle layered and requires an ungodly clean lens, so buy a good quality lens cleaning disc (cheap ones can just scratch the lens and make it worse), you can also send it into nintendo and they will do a proffessional cleaning for free then return your system
