System is displaying error message: Error 003 Unauthorized Device Has Been Detected


This error code indicates the region the system was manufactured for is not compatible with the Wii System Menu update. This incompatibility has made the system unplayable and it cannot be repaired. Nintendo is not able to provide support for these systems.
It has been modified so you will have to buy a new console sorry.

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
for possible recovery tricks.

I have a wii with 'error 003' - can it be repaired ? Is there someone i can send it to for repair ? I am in Melbourne, Australia.

Hi there, I believe "error 003" is caused by a botched update to firmware 4.2.
Your best bet is to contact Nintendo Support saying that it happened when you upgraded to 4.2.
Contact details on Nintendos site are here:
One question has your Wii ever been softmodded? As that may have been a factor in it happening.

I can turn my wii on but my remotes can not connect ??

ahm... Do you know the red button beside the sd card jack on the wii console and the red button located at the battery case? If you do, that's good. You need to press both buttons at the same time then test the wiimote if it works. If not, then do the same thing again. Don't panic. It's nothing compared to my problem. I got error003 after updating. It ****'s I know.

My Wii is hung with the message 'Error 003, Unauthorised device has been detected.'Won't go away

I hate to tell you, but your Wii has bricked. It is now inoperable. I guess you haven't heard, but the 4.2 update can brick even unmodded Wiis.

However, all is not lost. You can get your Wii fixed absolutely free. Call Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 for assistance on your repair. Source(s):………
