Hi,Looking for a way on how to fix a Wii that freezes? There are 2 ways to do this, and only 1 will suit you the most. You either send your console over to Nintendo, or you actually going to repair the freezing problems by yourself with the use of a repair guide. But first, let me give you some tips.

Here are 4 tips that might solve the problem, if they aren't working you will have to check out the options that you've got left.

1) Restart your console
2) Check for any loose cables
3) Unplug all cables, and plug them back in but don't plug out the power cord.
4) Take out the hard-drive, and get it back in.

Didn't work? Then I'm afraid that it's a hardware problem. You either solve this by sending your troubleshooting console over to Nintendo, or you can simply do it yourself with the use of a repair guide.

Fix My Wii that freezes by sending it over to Nintendo?

This option works quite good, but there are 2 big downsides on this. The price, and the waiting times. You see, when you send your troubleshooting console over to Nintendo, You'll have to wait for at least 2 weeks before you get your console back. Also, if your warranty has been expired, you will have to pay $82,50 for the repairs. This includes the handling and shipping costs.

Fix My Wii by... Myself with a repair guide?

This is actually the best option that you have. If you fix your console by yourself, you won't have to pay lots of money for the repairs and you don't have to wait for weeks either.

Cheap! When you do this, you only have to pay a small fee for the repair guide, that's it. Also, you will be able to get your console repaired within a day, or even within 1 hour.

Touch screen is not responding and can not play any games.

Perform a recalibration as soon as you notice a problem, to prevent performance errors.

If the calibration problems do not go away you may need to contact Nintendo for technical service or if you think you can replace the screen you self i can give the process to do so...

How to Replace a Nintendo DSi Touch Screen

Finding someone to fix a Nintendo DSi touch screen can be time-consuming and costly. However, with the right tools, you can do it yourself. Even if you've never tried fixing anything until now.


things you'll need:

* Tri-wing screwdriver
* Precision Phillips screwdriver
* Precision flathead screwdriver
* New Nintendo DSi touch screen

Turn the Nintendo DSi over and find the five screws on the edges of the bottom. Take each one out with your tri-wing screwdriver. In the center you will find an additional screw that will need to be removed with a precision Phillips screwdriver. This keeps your battery in place.

Take the battery out. Underneath it you will find two screws that must be removed with the tri-wing screwdriver. After both have been taken out, pull up on the bottom casing to access the motherboard. In order to replace a Nintendo DSi touch screen, this will have to be removed.

Detach the right and left buttons in the top corners by pulling up. Underneath each one will be a spring---make sure you don't lose these. Then remove the four screws in the middle of the motherboard with the precision Phillips screwdriver.

Look for the ribbon attached on the bottom left corner of the motherboard. Take a precision flathead screwdriver and pull up on the black bar that connects the ribbon. You should be able to slide it out by pulling back.

Find the two small connectors that are locked in with two tiny clips on each one. Lift up on all four clips to pull out the underlying connectors. Take out the motherboard and turn it upside down. Now you are ready to replace your DSi touch screen.

Detach the Nintendo DSi touch screen with your fingernails. Pull it away from the adhesive, one side at a time. Take the new screen and peel away the protective plastic before replacing it. Line it up where the old touch screen was and reassemble the Nintendo DSi.

Hope it helped...

The health and safety screen stays on my dsi

That can mean many things.
  • The buttons could be out
  • The touch screen might not work
  • The DS is freezing
  • Ect...
The best advice I can give you is to look on the bottom for the Nintendo hotline number. Call them and they can help you trouble shoot/fix your problem, and if its in warranty; fix it for free (if its out of warranty they could do it for as little as $30 if you're lucky)

Hi fitted new lcd bottom screen on dsi and turn it on and it freezes does it need resetting

Check you ribbon cable connection to the board. Make sure that anything you disconnected from the board in replacing the screen is properly reconnected. I have had this happen several times with ones that I have fixed, and most of the time, the ribbon cable to the screen was just slightly crooked. If the DSi functioned with the broken screen before, this is the most likely cause. Worst case scenario, it blew a fuse, which is VERY hard to replace, but if you have good soldering skills, it can be done. Hope this helps!

Nintendo DSI keeps freeing and will not turn of what do i do ?

My problem was fixed by making sure the off button was pushed down for more than 15 seconds.My son was the one trying to turn it off and apparently he did not understand how long you needed to hold the button down to try the fix. The white screens must have been a fluke as it has not happened again in the past couple weeks..
