    My Wii is Japanese and modded and Region free and I can use any NTSC version of almost any game but after inserting a USA version of "Metroid Prime 3" my Wii went throgh a (seems to be) update progress and restarted and after that when I press Home button on my Wii Remote there is no "Wii Menu" button on screen AND when I try to go to settings menu through the main menu an error page occurs and i says that I'm trying to connect to "marc:JP/JP/JPN/index1.html" that is currently unavailable since my Wii is not connected to internet and doesnt have opera browser on it.then I have no choice but to reset the Wii.

    Anyway I can still play games but the settings menu is gone.

    I appreciate your consideration,please help me.

I had the same problem, been looking for a fix for it for ages, and finaly i can say i found one. it worked for mine but cant be 100% sure it will for you but you can try it and if it does not work all you will get is a new game.

i managed to get a copy of the new SONIC AND SEGA ALL STARS RACING. when i put it in the wii it asked me to update.
i did this and i can know access my settings and everything where as before i could not.

hope this helps and please if it works pass it on to anybody you know that has this problem as i know how annoying it is not being able to use your wii properly.

Well, This is not a solution but, We just can't belive that Nintendo just the Wii Setting into a HTML page... Why would they do that? Ok Here is the solution for ya:

This solution only works for people have internet on their Wiis, no worries guys, I'll give you the offline solution after this...

1st You need Homebrew Channel, Sd Card (1 GB is fine) and internet connection

if you don't have, go to and search there "Homebrew Channel"

2nd go to Google on your computer and search for 4.0 Update for Wii in Homebrew, Click any page that has it, download it and put it on your SD Card.
On your SD Card create a folder named "apps" and put there the Update (if the update is a "boot.dol", create a folder and name it "Wii System Update 4.0" and put Boot.dol in it)

3rd Go to Homebrew Channel
click there the boot.dol

4th There your done updating your wii!

Have fun!

    Where's my online solution? nevermind...

    1st you need hombrew channel, SD Card (1GB is fine). Get this on and search there "Homebrew Channel" and follow the Instructions given to you, I'm not responsible for more damage on your Wii.

    2nd still at Wii Brew, search for AnyRegion Changer and download it

    3rd Create in the SD Card a folder named "apps", put there the AnyRegion Changer.

    4th Enter Homebrew Channel, enter AnyRegion Changer

    5th If you updated it with a Japan Wii Game, turn to Japan. Updated it with a PAL Wii game, turn to Europe...





Hey, I am having the same problem. I read on another post that you can manually take out the battery pack to wipe the system. Apparently you take out the screws from the bottom where your serial number and take the battery out from there. I don't need access system settings that much, but some of you might want to try it. I have a *** wii with a wiikey...

Posted on Jul 16, 2008

Dear "ogre",
your solution would probably work, but WE CANT ACESS THE SETTINGS MENU IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!! So how the hell are we supposed to wipe the system????!!! And even if we could do that, as soon as we inserted an american bought game the same would happen. So we could'nt play those games, and it wouldn't be a soulution.

I have the same problem as well can any1 help???? pls email me

Thanks alot

Format (Erase) Wii System Memory This option is used to delete ALL Channels and ALL save data that have been added to the Wii console and will wipe the system memory clean, as it was when purchased new. Please note that if you also have a Wii Shop Account, that data should be deleted first (click here for instructions).

    To delete ALL Channels and save data
  1. Access the Wii System Settings screen (how to).
  2. Click on the left blue arrow twice to reach the Wii System Settings 3 menu options.
  3. Select "Format Wii System Memory."
  4. wii settings - settingsformat.gif
  5. If Parental Controls are set, enter the PIN.
  6. If you are sure you want to erase the Wii console's system memory, select "Format."

My PDP Rock Candy Wii Remote Isn't Working

Have you tried a temporary sync?

If you don't know how to do this then all you gotta do is:

* With a Wii remote that is already synced Press the Home Button.
* Pick Wii remote settings, located at the bottom.
* Select Reconnect.
* Press 1 & 2 on the Rock Candy remote and see if that works.

Sadly this only lasts till the Wii is turned off.

I don't know if it works for the Rock Candy remote, but I hope it does until a more permanent solution turns up for you.

Turn off for a moment, try again, reconnect your controller.

Since its brand new, you can get it replaced if that doesn't work, dont waste your energy on it, just get another one, free replacement / warraty. Im sure.

Hi there!
There are two ways to connect your Wii to the internet; you can connect to your wireless network (if you have a wireless modem set up in your house), or you can connect using a wired connection directly to your modem.
If using a wired connection, you will need to purchase a Wii LAN adapter and connect that from your WII into your wired router.

Once you have figured out what connection type you will use (and if using a wired connection, purchased and connected your Wii LAN adapter) you will need to take the following steps:
  • Turn on your Wii and click on the "Wii" button on the bottom left of the screen
  • Click on "Wii Settings"
  • Click on the arrow on the right side of the screen and select "Internet"
  • Select "Connection 1 : none" (if you don't see "None" in Connection 1, click the Connection 1 button, then choose "Clear Settings")
  • Click on "Wireless Connection" and then "Search for an Access Point"
  • Select "OK" and the Wii will display all the wireless networks it finds.
  • Select the wireless network that is yours.
  • If it asks you to enter a password or key, then your wireless connection is password protected and you will need to enter the password that was setup to allow access to your network.
  • Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."
  • Your Wii will test the connection and you should get a message saying connection was successful.
  • Connect your Wii to the Wii LAN adapter and connect that to your modem or broadband adapter. Please not that you will need to unplug your modem for a few minutes to reset the connection and you will also need to unplug the connection to your computer when you want to connect your Wii to the internet.
  • Turn on your Wii and select the Wii icon on the bottom left
  • Click on "Wii Settings"
  • Click the arrow on the right side of the screen and select "Internet"
  • Click "Connection Settings"
  • Click "Connection 1 : none" (if you don't see "None" in Connection 1, click the Connection 1 button, then choose "Clear Settings")
  • Click "Wired Connection"
  • Click "Ok"
  • Your Wii will now do a connection test
  • You should see a message saying the test was successful
Hope this helps!

When i turn the game on, it goes to the loading screen, loads my profile, but when the message box pops up saying "syncronizing nba today. please wait..." it freezes and emits a beeping noise....

go to your Wii settings and turn off the internet so there's no way to get to NBA Today. Then the sychronize part is excluded when you start loading to play.Sorry, but you can't play online though

Hold down the eject button for 5 to 10 seconds. 4Try ejecting the disc with the Wii at different angles.

Cant find other players in online mode

I have had the same problem. Sometimes it is a problem with the Nintendo servers, according to my fellow MKWii Clan members. Most of the time it seems to be caused by a problem with your Wii connecting to other Wii's. Disconnect from WiFi, go to Main menu. Turn off the Wii, at the console, holding the button 'till the light goes red. Give it a minute. then turn off the power and unplug the Wii. Then turn off your Router. Give it 5 mins. then turn on your router, waiting 'till broadband is up and running, then plug in and turn on the Wii. then try to go WorldWide.This has worked for myself and many of my MKWii Clan members, and it generally sorts the problem.
