Question about Nintendo Wii Console
Hello. I got a wii problem i hope you can help me with.
Every time I switch on my Wii, it freezes after about 5 seconds. The blue light comes on about a second before - showing it's due to a message that it freezes. I know that the message is a massive chain email full of massive colourful text and loads of hyperlinks - because my it is a message that my friend sent, both to the Wii and to my email inbox. I guess that the message has taken up the Wii's memory or something, and the only way I can see to fix the problem would be to restore it to factory settings - but the Wii always freezes before i can get into the wii settings menu.
I have also tried removing the internal lithium battery - did so for several hours but the message remained.
Is it possible to delete things on the wii or wipe the memory without having to access the menu?
Would be great if you could help!
This is easy, just hold + and - at the black startup screen that comes up when you turn your wii on. This will put it in maitenence mode and disable the message board. From there you can do anything you want with your wii as long as you don't use the message board. Hope that helps.

I'm not sure that you can reset it to factory without using the menu. However if you have an SD card you might try putting that in. The wii might see that and use that as memory since the wii memory is full and boot up.
