We were playing a game and the tv screen went black then we ejected the game and the wii console will not shut off and now it wont play a game or nothind then we tried to unhook it and the light stayed...

Power light is green or orange - TV screen is blank
    If the power light is green or orange and your screen remains blank, follow these steps.
    1. Completely power down your system by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the AC Adapter from the Wii for a moment, then plug it back in.
    2. Make sure your Wii console has the most current Wii system menu. Download the latest update (how to), and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved.
    If you continue to experience this issue, there is a problem with the Wii console and it will need to be repaired.

Hi currently living back at folks and have an annoying brother who keeps using my computers and game consoles he just broke 1tb harddrive and lost all data so i need to password protect everything is there...

Advice pinched from:

To put a password on your Wii,
Go to wii Options>Wii Settings
push the + button, and click parental Controls
Click yes and make a 4 digit pin number that's easy for you to remember, but nothing that someone could easily guess. (like the year you 1st joined a team or something) push OK, enter it again and push ok.
Choose a secret question, like what they ask you to choose when you start a new account somewhere (mother's maiden name, your place of birth, etc.) push ok and type in the answer to that question and push ok.
click "game settings and PIN" and (finally) to block one from playing games, change the "highest game rating allowed" option to something low (preferably early childhood so one wont be able to play ANY games without your permission) by pushing the down icon. hit ok, confirm, and "settings complete".

when you go to play a game, it will ask for the PIN everytime, which will eventually be a pain in the neck, but at least you'll know your games are safe

Unable to read disc I have 20 something games it wont read any of them

Here are the steps that worked for some:
1. Completely power down the console.
2. Power up the console and get to the Wii Menu.
3. Eject any disc currently in the console.
4. Press the eject button again, without any discs in the drive.
5. Insert the disc that you would like to play.

If this doesn't work then contact Wii customer support.

Wii Remote Problems!!

This is factory default with the Nintendo Wii, Try simply removing the batteries when done, OR!, which I do, is hold my hand over the top of the WiiMote and then press the power button, this prevents the Wii from getting the remote's instruction to power down, the remote thinks the Wii got it and then shuts down. Good Luck!

Wii consol shutting off in middle of game

Its possible that the console is overheating.
its also possible that the lense is dirty so before buying a new console try using a 10 dollar cleaner,it has saved me a lot of money
also try to keep it in a well ventelated area.

Unplug the power adapter at both ends (at the console and especially at the power outlet). Give the capacitors at least a minute to completely dissipate residual energy. Then, hook it back up and it should be good to go.

I would give credit to someone else for this super simple solution. But, it's all over the internet.

Plays only one game without problem.

Red means taht your wii is completely shut down

Amber means that it is basically in sleep mode, however if you have it connected to the internet wirelessly it will still get updates while in this mode.

By holding down the power button for 5+ seconds it will go red

Just tapping the power button will make it go Amber (sleep mode).
