Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii is making me think ps3

I had a wii for 2 months and when i loaded a cd one day it would make a click sound and go right back to the main menu. I sent it to nintendo in Cal. and they gave me one back with a different serial number about 3 week later. I haven't even played 3 hours on that one and now it does the same f in thing. First I would like to know what it was, and second if that serial number thing being different will mess up the 2 year warranty I bought for it at best buy? Thanks zoobs

If you had 2 year warranty at bestbuy your should have just brought it there for a new one, and even the refund for wii would not able you to get a PS3 they are unreasonably over priced and they're prices hardly go down at all, the reviews haven't been that great and alot of sony products (PS1, PS2, and PS3) breakdown like your wii if you are ditching your wii I would suggest a Xbox 360

7.Select the wireless network that is yours.
8.Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."

Download Netlix
1.Select the Wii Shop Channel on the Wii Menu.
2.A screen will appear asking you if you want to link a Club Nintendo account to your Wii Shop account. 3.If you have a Club Nintendo Membership, enter your User Name and Password, then select "Link" on the right. 4.If you do not have a Club Nintendo Membership, leave the fields blank and select "Do not link" on the left.

5.Select "Wii Channels" from the Wii Shop Channel main menu, then select "Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii." Select "Free 0 Wii Points" to begin the download.
6.Once Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii has finished downloading, it will be added to your Wii menu.
After Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii has been added, the next thing you'll need to do is connect your Wii console with your Netflix account.

Connect your Wii console to your Netflix account

  1. On your Wii
    If you're not already on this screen on your television, select Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii from the Wii menu. (Don't have this option?) On this screen you will be presented with a code; remain on this screen during the activation process.
  2. On your home computer
    Using an online device other than your Wii console - such as a PC, Mac, or Web-enabled phone - go to http://www.netflix.com/wii. (You will need to log into your Netflix account if you're not already logged in.)
  3. Still on your home computer
    Enter the code displayed on your television into the box on the bottom Netflix Web page, then click "Activate Now." (The code is case sensitive.)
  4. Back to your Wii
    Netflix will now attempt to activate the connection to your Wii console. This may take several minutes. When the process is complete, the Wii will automatically display your queue. (The screen on your computer will not change. Wait for the screen displayed by the Wii on your TV to indicate the activation has finished before going to another Web page.)
  5. And finally, watch TV episodes and movies streaming from Netflix on your Wii console by selecting the Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii on the Wii main menu.

Not Loading Disc


If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide
