Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Error Screen My son would put any of his games in his Wii and it would run through the meno screen. After the game title screen comes up, he would click on start, then the "trademark" screen would come up. After that, the error screen comes up saying that an error has occured and that we need to eject the disc and turn of the power. We can ejuect the disc, but it will not let us turn off the power at the switch. We can only turn it off by unplugging the system.

    I have the same problem while games are loading a blablck screen comes up with a message saying to eject the disc and shut off the system. The system will turn off if you hold the button down for a little while. But once I restart the same problem occurs.

If you are getting one of the above error messages:

  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. Error Screen - insertdisccorrect.gif
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

  • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures (click here).
    If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available

    We connected the wii u to my sons tv but nothing appears on the screen and it only appears on the game pad

    Make sure the tv is in the correct input, as in, hdmi 1 or 2. I think the set up process requires you to use the pad first.

    My sons are playing Ghostbusters for the Wii and and error message keeps coming up - Fatal Error Msg: Call of NULL function 8FA2: TRI_Library_l_RRTwisted .......unofficial build Apt. 22, 2009 ...

    It could be the game. Return it to the store and buy another copy and see if it gives you the same error message. Otherwise, your son probably tried installing apps on the Wii like Homebrew and "bricked" the Wii, which will make it never work again.
