Wii console While playing the game just shuts off after playing for 30 minutes or so. Can pull the power cord out and plug back in (comes back on)but same result several minutes later. Frustrating when playing games with long levels. Any ideas, short of a new console?

    Is the Wii in a place that lets it get enough cool air? It could be overheating.

Dear White Nose, Always have an external fan blowing on your game systems while they running, heat kills electronics fast !

Almost all electronics are made cheaply nowadays, in other words they use cheap parts that wont last very long, so the more you use it, the faster it will wear or burn out. They build things so that it will hopefully last a little longer then the warranty, and then break down so that we will have to pay them money to repair it or replace it ! That is the truth and this is a fact !!! One thing we can do is buy an extended warranty when one is available.

If we know were going to be using a product a lot, and we don't want to be spending money any time soon on repairs or replacement, it's only wise to get a "good" extended warranty !

God bless you and I hope this advice helps some !

Wii console went dead... is there a fuse to reset the thing?

Try unplugging all the cords from the wii unit, wait about a minute or so, then reconnect the cords and power up. This should "reset" the system. A similar situation occurred with our system, and this was the solution we were told to try, and it worked. Good luck! :)

My wii doesnt turn on properly

I would format your memory, then turn everything off, but make sure to take out your game disc. Then unplug the wii for about 30 minutes. Plug it back in then start up your consol. If it happens again call Nintendo.
