Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the NO DISPLAY ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a Wii Repair Guide , From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

The other solution would be to send the console off to Nintendo, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $90



Glad I could Help!

Good Luck & Best Regards

Pete

Power light is green or orange - TV screen is blank
    If the power light is green or orange and your screen remains blank, follow these steps.
    1. Completely power down your system by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the AC Adapter from the Wii for a moment, then plug it back in.
    2. Make sure your Wii console has the most current Wii system menu. Download the latest update (how to), and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved.
    If you continue to experience this issue, there is a problem with the Wii console and it will need to be repaired.

Display problems while playing Virtual Console games


If you are experiencing display issues (dim, blank or half-blank screen, ghosted image, etc.) with a Virtual Console game while using the Component Video Cable, please read the following:
Some Virtual Console games default to displaying 240 lines of video. Some HD TV's are unable to display a signal with only 240 lines. Try the steps below to set the Wii to output 480 lines of video, which may solve the problem:
  1. While on the Wii Channel Menu (main screen of the Wii), connect a Nunchuk to Wii Remote.
  2. Select the Virtual Console game from the Wii menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
  3. When the game starts, press the Home button on the Wii Remote. (In many games, the music can be heard when the game starts.)
  4. Select "Operations Manual" from the Home menu.
  5. Press the Z + A + 2 Button simultaneously (the Z Button is on the Nunchuk). A sound will be heard if the button combination has been entered correctly.
  6. Close the Home menu. The game should now display correctly. Note: You will not have to do this the next time you play, as the Wii console will remember these settings.
If the Virtual Console game is still not displaying properly, but all other games work fine, please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

Wii remotes dont work on the tv screen replaced batteries in both remotes still does nothing


If you ahve checked for all possible obstructions or made sure tha tyour sensor bar is plugged try to re-sync your Wii remotes. Unplug your Wii for about 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Upon seeing the health and saftey screen hold down the sync button on your Wii console for 15 seconds. This clears out any previous Wii Remote Syncs. After that is performed open up the battery cover on the Wii remote you want to sync and hit the red button, soon after you do that hit the red sync button on your Wii Console. If it syncs properly the blue LEDs on the bottom of the controller will corespond to the # remote it has been synced to. Good luck.

The screen goes blank, wii emits buzzing noise.


refrain from playing for a few days.

its what you call a black screen of death. it will keep happening until your wii stops if you dont refrain from playing for a while and obey the health/safety rules (sometimes the wiis pass becuase the health/safety rules hide the bsod) [health/safety rules: take a ten - minute break every hour.] BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR WII IT IS VERY FRAGILE IF IT GETS A BSOD!!!!!!! {fragile=easily damaged INTERNALLY}

Sounds like you may have an overheating issue. Make sure your system is well ventilated (have plenty of space on all sides). If you still have problems, try buying a cooling fan add-on for your system.

Also, when using component video cables and a WidescreenTV: Go into the Wii's system settings, under Screen, change TV Resolution to HDTV (480p) instead of Standard TV (480i) and change to Widescreen (16:9) under Widescreen Settings.

Good luck!

PS: In order to shut off the system when having problems, try holding the front power button for about 5 to 10 seconds.

Wii remote


Greetings baggie bird,

You need to resynch your remote to your Wii console.

You hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.

Thank you,

Dort
Go Ahead. Use Us.
