Re: Wii HELP

Try re syncing the remotes using the red button on the wiimote and the wii console and your wii remotes should all be working fine.
if your worried about your sensor bar use a digital camera to take a picture of it, if the leds in the picture are working then your fine, or don't rent games from blockbuster, rent from jumbo video

I have a 40GB ps3 and when i put mlb 10 the show in from blockbuster(rented)the ps3 did not read the disc, although it does read DVDs and has internet access working. What should I do?

Blockbuster "Cleans" their DVDs/BlueRay Discs/Etc....

.......Using a Buffer-type device to basically rub all the scratches off........
and fill them in as well.........


Just take the disc back and ask for a new or better copy to rent........they won't charge you again and they'll extend your rental days to accomodate your inconvenience.
That Should Solve The Problem!

The blueRay Disk that we rented from Blockbuster does not play in PS3. When we take it out... there is a line across the disk

OK, take it back to blockbuster and get another copy. Tell them that it was like that when you received it ;)

I have played mainly blue ray on my ps3 now that i have a new game rented from block buster it says the game is encrypted

Go to blockbuster and tell them they rented you an encrypted copy which indicates it's fake. explain EVERYTHING you did to avoid a charge/fine. the last person to rent it probably screwed it up somehow.

Rented games (perfect condition even) wont play. period.

most of the new game disk have security feture to prevent copy. if some one rented and copyed its toast. The console picks this up and will not play it. If you can find some one to mod your console that will get past the security feture it should work but you lose the warnty

Wii downloaded games wont let 2 play

In order to play your downloaded games you will have to mod your Wii. It involves ALOT of soldering and a mod chip. You also have the chance to break your unit, along with disabling all updates, downloadable content, and all the little perks you can access through Wiiware. My solution to you is rent the games from your local game rental place, and buy them if you like them.

I have a playstation 2 and we purchased the game Nicktoons Unite and it will not play because it's looking for an eye toy. Is there a way to play the game without the eye toy?

Simple answer is no, the game obviously requires motion sensing to be able to play, just as singstar uses microphones to play, you can sometimes rent the eyetoy in some shops like choices and blockbuster but if not ebay is your best option for a cheap deal,

Hope this helps, ****.

Fails to read disks other than Super Mario Galaxy

Here is why Wii wants you to upgarde,

Wii wants you to upgarde since last ver. can not be hacked. So Wii makes people to upgarde by using the games, so that the more you upgarde the harder it is to hack the Wii. If Wii can be hacked, you can play copied games, you can go to blockbuter get a game, copy the game in computer and make copies at of it, so that you dont have to buy the game. And your wii is able to read the copied games

Now lets start with your problem,

Well now it will be even harder to downgrade the frimware of you Wii. (Wii doesnt want you to downgarde). Try to upragde it again if that doent work then upgarde it from the Wii's web page at

There can be a problem in you Wii's upgardeded frimware.
