Wii error code 003


Hello
Try this.

The code itself will appear on a customer's screen usually after firmware is upgraded. The screen will become blank with a message of "Error 003: unauthorized device has been detected". The system also notes the error is due to memory, data, or save related issues and provides a phone number to call for assistance.
There is a technique one can use to try to "break" back into the system. This may be accomplished by holding down the reset button while at the same time turning on the power. A menu should appear on the screen with an option to run a brick safety program that can restore device functionality. Keep in mind, though, that this has only worked with modded consoles

The wii stopped function after it was connected to Internet . Since then it has been showing on the TV screen" Error 003, unauthorised device detected


If you Wii has been modded (modified) to play burned games or games from other regions and it picked up a software update from the Internet, this can happen.
This typically happens upgrading from 4.1 to 4.2.
If you have not modded the box, you can try to contact Nintendo for repair.
If you did the mod, look at something like http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-issues-only/33029-guide-how-fix-korean-4-2-error-003-unauthorized-device-has-been-detected.html
for possible recovery tricks.

Everytime i turn on my nintendo wii an error message occurs


This usually means the Wii was modified to play other region games and Nintendo has locked it out. In other words, the mod used no longer works and will need removed or replaced.

While holding down the reset button, turn on the power to the Wii. If a menu comes up then your Wii has been modified and won't work again until the mod is removed, assuming if it can be removed.

There is a decent blurb about it here, including instructions for users of Homebrew Channel and Loadmii. I neither use or endorse use of these modifications as it is against Nintendo's AUP/Service Agreement.
