Re: cant continue past the press A to continue screen

Get a replacement product!!!!!! These Wii's are so popular and there are so many of them out there...that some are bound to be faulty, as mine was!! I experienced every problem that is listed here....from locking up during a game, to not getting past the press A screen. when it's good it's brilliant, but when it's bad, it's CRAP!!!!!!!!

Re: cant continue past the press A to continue screen

Does the cursor show up? have you been pointing towards the sensor bar? Are the batteries ok?
anke sure you check everything and anything. Take a break to think and check out something in the manuel if something's missing.

I cant choose anything on my WII homepage;no cursor

OK the problem is your censor. (if you dont know, its that long thin bar that comes with your wii.) there is really 3 things that could fix your censor: 1. move it because the censor cant read the controller, make sure the censor is plugged in, or get a new censor since its probably broken.

Wii will not load past Health and Safety screen.


Try a hard-reset. Unplug the console from the Mains For 5-10 Minutes.
Wii returns back to default settings.
