Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Wii Console doesn't have any sound

I know you guys already have a post that mentions this oddity, but have you heard anything else about the wii console's sound just not working anymore for no reason? A week ago, my wii worked fine, sound and all. Today there's no sound from the console. I tested the wii remotes and they have sound. There's no sound on the wii menu and onward.

Any ideas on how much it costs to fix this? Any word on why this is happening? I see 10 people have posted about this.

    after i plugged the wii into my downstairs tv no sound came out, but when the wii is plugged into the upstairs tv everything works fine! and im sure it is not the model because the downstairs tv is much younger (downstairs tv is a plasma upstairs is an old model from the 90's) any solutions?

    The only other thing you can do is try a system format and then update. Other than that You will have to send to nintendo for repairs. Mine was warrantied So I don't know how much it costs.

There is no color

Please try the below mentioned process to troubleshoot the issue.
  1. Set the Wii console to output 480 lines of video.

  2. While on the Wii Channel Menu (main screen of the Wii), connect a Nunchuk to Wii Remote.

  3. Select the Virtual Console game from the Wii menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.

  4. When the game starts, press the Home button on the Wii Remote. (In many games, the music can be heard when the game starts.)

  5. Select "Operations Guide" from the Home menu.

  6. 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.

  7. Close the Home menu. The game display should now be correct.

My Wii has no picture or sound. The power comes on, and I replaced the component video cable. I can feel the controller vibrate, so I know the Wii is working, but no picture or sound. Could the Wii's...

You may want to ensure your Television is on the right input setting. That's usually the best bet when you have no signal from the console to the set.

If that still doesn't work, you may have to contact Nintendo or the location you purchased it from in order to secure a warranty replacement.

I hope this helped!

Reboot your wireless internet and move your Wii closer to the source of the wireless internet. If this doesn't work, you can purchase a LAN extension for you wii and hook it up to the internet directly through a wired connection. Let me know if you need anything else.

Had the wii plugged into an outlet controlled by switch the switch was shut off now the wii willl not power up even after unplugginng it

This is a perfect example of needing to reset the power cable. I know you've already tried unplugging it, but here is how you reset it. Unplug your power cable from the wall and your Nintendo Wii for 10-15 minutes so that it isn't plugged into anything. Then plug it in. This sounds silly, but it really should solve the problem. Good luck and please rate.

US version Wii Fit and Australian Wii console incompatibility

I don't think changing the TV would make any difference because the console isn't even loading up the disc. To play an NTSC game you would have to use a console from an NTSC area like the US. I'm sure Japan is NTSC as well. I've heard about Freeloader. Ever since I bought an Action Replay cartridge for my N64 I've never trusted Datel (who manufacture Freeloader). It really mucked up my N64. On the other hand I know many people who use Datel products and the like with no probs. I suppose if you got nothing to lose then try Freeloader.

Sorry I could'n t be much more help

(befory you read this, please excuse my leinghyness)

If you take apart the Wii very carefully, you might be able to get the game out (which you will most likely never be able to play again because the clicking noise is most likely the disc being rubbed against something) without causing damage to the Wii. Doing this is risking causing damage to your Wii (and yourself if you are too dumb to un-plug it.) so if you have bought your Wii less than a year ago,

Nintendo of America Inc. ("Nintendo") warrants to the original purchaser that the hardware product shall be free from defects in material and workmanship for twelve (12) months from the date of purchase. If a defect covered by this warranty occurs during this warranty period, Nintendo or a NINTENDO AUTHORIZED REPAIR CENTER will repair the defective hardware product or component, free of charge. The original purchaser is entitled to this warranty only if the date of purchase is registered at point of sale or the consumer can demonstrate, to Nintendo's satisfaction, that the product was purchased within the last 12 months.

if you purchased your Wii more than a year ago,

Please try our web site at or call the Consumer Assistance Hotline at 1-800-255-3700 for troubleshooting information and/or referral to the nearest NINTENDO AUTHORIZED REPAIR CENTER. In some instances, it may be necessary for you to ship the complete product, FREIGHT PREPAID AND INSURED FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE, to the nearest service location. Please do not send any products to Nintendo without contacting us first.

Wii wont take in CD!

sounds like slot disc loading mechanism gearing is misaligned.. Slot drives are difficult to fiddle with, I suggest you try to get this repaired under warranty, (don't mention that you dropped it though, just say it stopped working)
