Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Problem with certain games...

I have had a Wii for about 6 months, it was working fine until a few days ago. Until Christmas, I only had five games, each one worked fine, (although none of these games included unlocking levels, some inlcuded goals) For Christmas I received Super Paper Mario game for my Wii, I played on it straight away.

After reaching about a 1/3 of the way through the second realm/area, the game stopped. I was at a point where you must visit a selection of rooms, then report back to character, at this point, the game froze. The Wii remote also froze, the controls no longer worked, the TV than emitted a long middle pitched sound which didn't stop until the Wii console was turned off on the console buttons. Even if the game was ejected, the picture stayed.

I first thought this was an error with the game, I took it back and bought another copy in a different shop altogether. The same problem occured at the same spot. I was very dissapointed so I went out and bought the Simpsons game to play instead. This game workled perfectly until, what I can only assume is around the same point as Super Paper Mario, the same problem occured.

These games are the only ones I have experienced this paticular problem with, although different glitches have occured with other games, i.e. The MySims game struggles to load music, sometimes stutters. The Sims2 Castaway has frozen for long periods of time, kept loading for several minutes e.g.

I was wondering whether the problem lies with my games, or with my console.

Well, you can manually update it. Go to the bottom left corner. There, you should be able to clearly see what to do to update it. (I can't walk you through it, as my TV is in use currently.)

Wii is dead

1. push the reset button and if that doesn't work unplug all cords and memory cards (including sd) from wii and unplug av from the wii and the outlet in wall. Wait 2-3 min or unplug the wii overnight and The trick i use was to literally smack the power supply on the ground and plug it back in. It seemed to work for a few weeks, until you buy a new power cord Don't call Nintendo unless you've got some money. it'll be $82 bucks.

My Guitar Hero 3 Game Will Not Go Past PS2 logo at start!!!

i think you should take the alcohol and take a cotton swab and gently brush the lens back and forth for 30 seconds. Then take the alcohol and take a really soft tissue and rub it in a circular motion.

Wii games won't play....

Call customer service. It seems that some Wii's are scratching dics. The warranty will cover it. Look on the readable side of the disc and see if it is leaving circular scatches. Mine is doing the same thing to certain games.
