    Please shed some light to my wii problem.

    I have a US version
    Mod, I inserted a game disc and it automatically did an update then my
    wii hanged. I restarted my wii eject the disc then tried it again. No
    update selected the game and it hanged again. After another restart I
    tried my other game disc, it worked and I was able to play the other
    disc.

    My dilemma: I noticed that after the update, I can't access the wii settings. When I select the icon it follows an error page

    "
    You tried to access the address marc:FIX/US/index01.html which is
    currently unavailable. Please make sure that the web address (URL) is
    correctly spelled and punctuated. then try reloading the page.

    Make
    sure your internet connection is actives and check whether other
    applications that rely on the same connection are working."

Does anybody know a diffferent way??.. im really desperate

    All the settings are local, so it shouldn't be trying to connect to a web site. Give it a couple of minutes.

Hi there, I have uploaded a file on the following link http://www.4shared.com/account/dir/5026890/ce5fe369/sharing.html?rnd=64 copy the file which fits your Wii (Japanese or US or Europe) and use Winrar to open the ISO file. Then burn the iso file onto a DVD with low speed like 2x. Then, insert the DVD into your Wii and play the game like normal, it will ask for software update and click yes. Then take out the DVD and check your Menu setting, it comes back.

Yes it's a semi-brick,

I had the same problem "marc:EU/EU/ENG/index01.html" but I fixed it with the new Wii downgrader (Google it!!!).

I used this to downgrade to firmware V2.0 English and
hey- presto problem solved.

I then upgraded to a recent firmware using a game disk

It sounds like you purchased a Japanese Wii that was intended to be used in Japan. As Tech Doctor mentioned, all of the settings are local to the Wii. You shouldn't have to connect to anything.

Also Opera is an optional channel (The Internet Channel). It may not even be on your Wii. When the unit is powered on, does it not go to the channel screen? If it does, you should be able to click the Wii icon at the bottom right of the screen to get to the settings.

    Correction: The icon you are looking for on the main page is not on the right, it's on the left. If I remember correctly, it looks like a wrench. Sorry I misinformed you on my solution.

I have question for hbokhary i download it, but i can`t open it with the 3.90 WINRAR

Posted on Dec 01, 2009

What if we wer to have the chip taken out then start the wii to sort out the setting issue and then have the chip put back in im only tring to think of ways to get it sorted

Posted on Jul 17, 2008

To fix the problem, you'll have to wait for a game to come out that has a newer version of the firmware than you have. Also the game must be the same region of your wii for this to work. It'll have to be a Nintendo branded game... and you might have to wait awhile for a game to come out with an updated firmware.

Posted on Apr 29, 2008

It sounds like your wii is "semi bricked".
It appears your wii has been chipped and then had a firmware update which is from a different region than your wii was made for. Nintendo put firmware updates on some of their new discs to improve the wii's performance by updating the wii's operating system. If for example it's a chipped "pal" machine and region free enabled and you load the latest "ntsc" game that contains a wii firmware update it will overwrite the pal firmware with ntsc firmware which it's not designed to run hence the problems you have. Normally a pal machine won't play an ntsc disc and vive versa unless it's been chipped and region free enabled. Google the term wii semi bricked for more info.
