Wii Freeze Up

Ok, Yesterday I was playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I was doing a 99 stock match and I got a message while I was playing it. After I was finished I went to check the message and when i went to check it the blue disk slot color appears and my Wii freezes. I can't do anything now because even when I restart my Wii and the blue light appears telling me I got a new message it freezes up. Please help me. I can't do anything now since it freezes right when I try to do something.

Your Wii has probably overheated. Make sure you turn the wii OFF not to standby mode. When you push the power button hold it down until it turns RED not Orange. Once it's RED let it sit for an hour and cool off. Then try and start it up again after the hour has passed. If you don't have any freezing right away like you are now then you know it's a heat problem. Make sure the wii is standing up in the silver base and that it's not closed inside a cabinet or anything. They need air. Don't sit them on the floor/carpet for any reason. Don't have any other electronics around them that give off heat either as it only compounds the heat problems.

I have the game Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Gamecube, but i am trying to play it on my Wii but it won't let me. It says the game is unreadable. What could i do to play the game if it is possible.


A game that's designed for the Gamecube will only play on a Gamecube unless you play it on a computer with the correct emulator installed.

You cannot play any Gamecube, Xbox, PS3 etc games on the Wii

I bought super smash bros brawl before and it worked fine then after awhile it stoped working keeps saying it cant read the disk anymore


New game or used game?

1.) New Game - its your system. Super Smash Bros is a dual layer game and it takes a strong laser to be able to read the game. You would need to get your laser replaced.

2.) Used game - possibly worn out. Check the back for scratches.

Wii Freeze Up

Sounds like you need a soft or hard reset.
try unplugging the console from the mains for 5-10 minutes, then try turning on re-booting. remove any memory cards et,c. when you startup.

My wii wont load any games

We had similar problems after buying Super Smash Bros Brawl. I noticed that the Wii could read which disc was in the system but could not load it in order to play. This seemed like a shortage of memory to me (but the error message does not indicate a memory issue). I bought a 1 gig sd memory card for the Wii and now it works perfectly. BTW the kid at the Best Buy store did not think this would work, but it did. Good Luck.
