My wii wont let me update my netflix. It gives an error code of 204038. And in the wii shop channel it says updated, but if I try and go into netflix it says I need to update and I've tried multiple t

Your error code suggests that you are having communications issues the Wii shop channel.

Is there any chance you have recently moved the system or the wireless router in such a manner that might have increased interference between the two? Have you switched to a different wireless router?

Since wireless is a radio signal it communicates by sending separate packets in between the breaks. This could be causing the operation to time out on you. If there is a great deal of interference that now exists between the two you could bring the Wii closer to the router just for the purposes of the update. This of course assumes you have the ability to place a television near the router as well.

One thing to bear in mind here; if it is in fact timing-out on you, your Netflix streaming experience will likely suffer as well once you have successfully updated. In that case I recommend acquiring a wireless broadcasting powerline adapter or an access point (the powerline adapter will likely be cheaper).

This might help
1 Turn it on as normal, but press +,-, and A at the start screen

If that didn't help
1 Unplug your console
2 Hold down the power button for 20-30 sec
3 Now try turning ot on
4 Run a system update.(It may tell you you dont have to)
If all else fails
Sorry for wasting your time you will have to get it professionaly fixed or send it in to nintendo
Thank you for your time, good luck and I hope this helps

There is a variety of problems in the wii that carry that same message. This thread solves one problem by deleting any large messages in your wii. You might also want to update your firmware in your Wii by going to the settings on your wii and checking there. If the problem is still there, then you unfortunately have to send in your Wii for repair.

Ps3 slim says hard drive corrupted but wont work?

You will need to update the hard drive. You have to go to playstations website and find the update for your ps3 dashboard you can put it on a memory stick make sure to save it just how sony suggests. Then you put the memory stick in the ps3 and it will update your hard drive and it should work. Fixxed several with the same problems that way. Hope this helps. If you need help finding the update just let me know.

Upgrated software on wii and now can't access wii setings it say page doesn't exist

This shouldn't happen, sounds like the download was corrupted and the update didn't finish :( You will have to contact Nintendo and see if they will fix this for you.

I just downloaded the most recent software upagrade and the unit has frozen and is making a buzzing noise.

this is probably a simple limited memory issue, that there is no (or very little) RAM (random access memory) left available on the system left to function. If this is the case contact Nintendo for help (mentioned in instruction manual). This could also be a result of a corrupt data upload (update) in software that could be too much or too little of a file resulting in a software/ product crash. You would then need to contact Nintendo to get help with the problem, they may give you a new Wii or give you a refund (maybe...). This problem is common, if you get this problem fixed: wait for coming update for a safer update.

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.
