Question about Nintendo Wii Console
When I start my wii and click on the menu screen it freezes after about 10 seconds. I can't move the cursor on the screen and when I try to turn the wii off with the remote it just shuts its self off. Then I half to walk up to the wii and hold the power for 5-10 seconds. Once it's off the red error light on the power button is on. (I'm connected to the internet/wii connect 24 so it should be yellow) . Has anyone else had this problem and how do I fix it.
There are a few issues with this problem, one of these solutions might help you.
1. Get a camera and turn it on. Aim it towards the right side of your Wii Sensor Bar, and then towards the left side of the wii sensor bar. If your camera has a video output, you should notice 5 dots that blink on the right side (3 lined in the center, and 2 on the outsides of the center), and the same on the left side. My sensor bar had the five lights working on the right side, but the 5 dots sporadically glitching on the left side, which means I needed a new sensor bar. This is a $10 fix.
2. If you use a charger station (one example is by NyKo) those can burn out the wiimote sensors. I have been using it for over two years and not had a problem, yet. The lady said it could cause issues. Most likely not. This is a send wii and remotes in to get fixed, which costs $95.
