My Wii has Error 003! What is wrong?


The Wii is a magnificent product that rarely has errors but there is one error that seems to be increasing in occurrence, Error 003.

This error is not from something that the innocent user or buys has done but what has been done to the product prior to purchase. That is as long as they did not do anything to modify it.

This error originated from Wiis purchased on ebay from South Korea. The error would occur when the system was connected to the internet and updated. This error was created by Nintendo to disable the modified Wiis.

These modifications are illegal. The specific modification to the South Korea was to change the region of the system to make it think that it is from Region 1 for the USA.

Once this error occurs, there is normally no fix for it. There is one thing you can try. Turn the system on then hold the RESET button down for about 5 seconds. If a menu system unlike anything you have seen before comes on, then you have a recovery system installed into the Wii. You will need to learn it to fix the problem.

Even if you fix it, there may not be a chance to make it work correctly. Even so, this site does not allow for help with illegal activity and so the help stops here.

Good luck

The wii stopped function after it was connected to Internet . Since then it has been showing on the TV screen" Error 003, unauthorised device detected


If you Wii has been modded (modified) to play burned games or games from other regions and it picked up a software update from the Internet, this can happen.
This typically happens upgrading from 4.1 to 4.2.
If you have not modded the box, you can try to contact Nintendo for repair.
If you did the mod, look at something like http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-issues-only/33029-guide-how-fix-korean-4-2-error-003-unauthorized-device-has-been-detected.html
for possible recovery tricks.

Error 003 on a korean wii. what to be done?


Error 003 occurs when a system menu, 4.2 or higher, from a different region gets installed onto a Korean Wii.
You probably have a US version system menu and most likely a hacked wii.

After you connected to the Internet did you accept a system upgrade from Nintendo? This may be the problem.

Try this: while holding down the reset button, turn on the power to the Wii. If a menu comes up then your wii is definitely hacked but it has a brick safety program to get you out of it. If nothing happens then you're console is definitely bricked (a bricked wii becomes inoperable).

One solution is this but it's kinda difficult: difficult solution
Another solution might be to return it and get your money back or send it to Nintendo or query them at their site about this.
Another thing you can do it follow a professional guide that can fix your 003 error. Click here for more information.

I tried to get a wireless signal, wii stopped working


You canoth fix this. I hope you didnt' get this Wii off the internet. If you got it off the internet, and its from say ebay, you got a HACKED wii. Hacked Wiis with this error generally come from S. Korea and are unfixable.

If you modded the Wii yourself, then well you bricked it and unless you have a recovery program in the system with the hacks you are out of luck sorry.

If you bought this new in the box from a retail store, return it or complain to nintendo if its under warranty

Where did you buy this Wii? Sounds like you have a hacked Wii. Try this: while holding down the reset button, turn on the power to the Wii. If a menu comes up then your wii is definitely hacked but it has a brick safety program to get you out of it. If nothing happens then you may be out of luck.
