It sounds like you need help from the Nintendo team since hardly anyone in the US has the Japanese or any other foreign version of the system and knows how to troubleshoot issues.

This evening when connecting the Wii to the internet for the first time it came up with update support code 73412, I accepted the update now having updated the screen in black & white and very slightly...

Hmmm, you say the cables are all properly fitted right? If so, then you might need to reset your wii.... Something with the update must have altered something..... If you still have warranty, you can probably get it fixed, since this wasn't user error, but a hardware error.... :) Hope this helps :)

Our wii is second hand and we dont know the pin code we tried sevral numbers but it didnt work so can u give us a number so we can have the internet thanks

You should be able to format the system memory from the Wii Settings menu. It will be on the last page of settings options. It will erase EVERYTHING on the wii...channels, saves, EVERYTHING. But it will also erase security settings which should give you unrestricted access to the internet as long as your settings are correctly configured.
I hope this helps!

Wii turned into Japanese

You may have installed the Japanese version of the firmware by mistake, best thing I can suggest is to redowngrade but use the english version this time :P

Japanese wii update problem

i tried to share internet with a dongle and it didnt work.. i am not sure if it was because of the dongle or miss configuration.. but it was brand new so i kind of doubt it.. because the only thing it didnt give me when i connect was a dns suffix.. and well.. i bought the router just to save time.. so i would also suggest you to buy the routter, it will be easier.. you could also buy a usb connection so you go by wire and not wireless.. ...
