Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Games don't load until I reset and unplug console up to 4 or 5 times.

I turn on my wii and I choose to start a game. The screen turns black but the wii doesn't make a loading sound and the only way to turn it off is by unplugging it or resetting it. After I repeat this process 4 or 5 times I can get my games to run without a hitch. I am almost positive it isn't the av cables. I know a game will work when the wii console beebs and I know the processor is loading it. It has become a nusance to spend 10 minutes before I can play a game.

    new development, I've fixed it somewhat. As long as wii connect 24 is off it works fine. I think its overheating. Thanks for the help.

Unable to play Wii games


This either means your game is scratched or your reading ring is broke.

Resetting\Restoring it to original settings. WARNING: This will most likely wipe-out all saved games, demos, & etc. Restoring your PS3 to original settings. This is how it's done: Turn off PS3, Unplug PS3, Wait a couple minutes and re-insert plug, Push & hold-down power button until you hear 4 beeps (1,1,2) then let off the power. It should show you a page with restoring options, or a prompt of YES or NO of wanting to enter the Restore Options Page. Choose the one that you would like to do.

Power is on but screen is black


I found this [temporary] solution at http://www.wiierror.com/wii-black-screen.php:

(via email, thanks Steven) This happened to me once, but I fixed it. Here is how:
Eject the disk
Unplug the wii at the back
Wait 1 minute
Plug it back in
Turn it on from the remote
Press reset if it does not show up
Hold the power button to shut it off
Turn it on once more.
I don't know how, but it seemed to work for me. The problem happened when I was trying to load the Mii channel. Hope this helps !

(via email, thanks Andrew)
The first time I shut down my Wii, the light went orange (as it should). When I turned on the power with my wii remote the next day, the wii\'s light turned green but the screen was black.
The treatment was the same as from Black Screen, No Connection: Unplug the Wii\'s power supply unit, then replug; turn system on with wii remote.
The difference is: this problem can strike in more places than just by loading the Mii Channel. Also, I think the green light being on (yet there being a black screen) is a common symptom as well.

Wii freezing while loading games.


The problem is that your wii consle is probaly over heating. Try puting a small fan next to it, that should help.

Wii will do everything but it won't play games.....


I had the same problem. No new games would play but the old games played fine. I clicked on the spinning disc icon (where the game should come up) and it prompted me to do an update. I accepted. Once the update was complete (took about a minute or 2) the new games worked fine.

Does not recognize game


On two of my games (TMNT and Cosmic Family) I see the game preview in the game channel - but when I attempt to load the game up the screen turns black and returns to the Wii menu.

Wii black screen


The following fix should help users who do have problems with some virtual console games for the Nintendo Wii that display only a black screen after starting them while the sound remains normal. This does not work in all occasions but should work if you get the Wii menu when you press Home and works only for games that received an update for the interlaced mode.
Try out the following to see if this fixes the issue. Start the game normally until you see the black screen. Connect the Nunchuck to the Wiimote and press Home to see the menu options. Now press A + 2 + Z together which should result in a short “ping-like” sound.
This should have activated the interlaced mode. Leave the menu and you should see the normal game screen and not the black screen anymore. To change the mode again press A + 1 + Z using the same method as above
