More than likely it's the cd rom drive, something might have gotten stuck in it or needs to be clean or replaced

My wii get frozen when trying to play games, or even watching Netflix. I unplug it, wait 2 minutes, and then it works sometimes, and sometimes it doesn't . It gets stuck and says loading, then I...

Could be a few things.1.) Have you ran a firmware update lately? If so, I'd suggest reverting to factory settings.2.) If you haven't updated, it sounds like it's internal. Could be faulty hardware (4 years is quite awhile). Contact nintendo.

None of my four wii remotes will turn on

I apologize for such a delay in responding to your question. I had no idea you sent me a direct message until today. Have you solved your problem yet?

We have had 2 wii's stop working in the last 2 months. Just doesn't turn on anymore. Is this happening to others?

Yes other people do have this issue also. Usually just the power adapter is broken. Usually you can fix the power adapter by "resetting it". This involves unplugging both ends and leaving it unplugged for 2 mins. If that still doesnt work you can call nintendo @ 1-800-255-3700.

Wii is dead

1. push the reset button and if that doesn't work unplug all cords and memory cards (including sd) from wii and unplug av from the wii and the outlet in wall. Wait 2-3 min or unplug the wii overnight and The trick i use was to literally smack the power supply on the ground and plug it back in. It seemed to work for a few weeks, until you buy a new power cord Don't call Nintendo unless you've got some money. it'll be $82 bucks.

Wii will do everything but it won't play games.....

I had the same problem. No new games would play but the old games played fine. I clicked on the spinning disc icon (where the game should come up) and it prompted me to do an update. I accepted. Once the update was complete (took about a minute or 2) the new games worked fine.
