Sounds like classic computer problem with overheating. I know there is a stand with a built in fan for the Wii. But the normal stand should be enough. Have u dusted around you Wii? Everything with cooling has some amount of dust that finds it way into the machine. And all pc and consoles shut down when overheating, as a protective measure. Otherwise stuff would melt inside.
The cpu and gpu quickly gets hot if you have faulty fans and or the heatsink pads have disintrigated,
Try using a vaccum cleaner to remove any dust from the vents.
Listen and check for fans running and lastly you may need to do the x clamp repair mod.
If fans are running and all vents are clean and your warranty has expired on the console (check with microsoft), then go to ebay and look for x clamp repair kit and purchase the kit it should come with steel washers, heat treated nylon washers, screws and thermal paste. Make sure the seller also includes a guide on how to do the repair. These mods are pretty cheap BUT INVOLVES OPENING YOUR CONSOLE SO BE CAREFUL AND WILL VOID ANY WARRANTY.
if you were either downloading a update or a game update or playing a game while it was loading you have a bricked wii
fixable but req some stuff
some way req hardware and software
others are only software
When this same thing happened to me, I unplugged the Wii power supply from the wall (not just from the back of the Wii) and let it sit unplugged for about 10 minutes. When I plugged it back in, everything was fine.
Make sure it is not sitting on the floor/carpet etc. Also make sure it's sitting up right and not layting flat. Make sure it is sitting in it's silver stand. If the vents on the bottom or back of the wii are covered in any way it will overheat. Also, you might blow out the dust from the bottom vent.
First, I would advise you to not power up the console if it's getting hot. When the console is running, can you see the small fan on the back spinning? If not, you can probably buy an external cooling fan like this one.
