Error Message: Error 003 Unauthorized Device Has Been Detected

System is displaying error message: Error 003 Unauthorized Device Has Been Detected


This error code indicates the region the system was manufactured for is not compatible with the Wii System Menu update. This incompatibility has made the system unplayable and it cannot be repaired. Nintendo is not able to provide support for these systems.
It has been modified so you will have to buy a new console sorry.

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
for possible recovery tricks.

Error 003

Is this a Korean Wii? seems like a Wii update has been bricking moddified Wii consoles and also has hit a few non-modded consoles. If you had your Wii region changed then it was bricked from the upgrade. Currently no fix... (unless you live in the PI where they say they can fix it for P2000: )

Error 003

Hi Raviraj,

THink you must have updated your firmware to 4.3 update and you must have got this error code 003

I hate to tell you, but your Wii has bricked. It is now inoperable. I guess you haven't heard, but the 4.2 update can brick even unmodded Wiis.

However, all is not lost. You can get your Wii fixed absolutely free.
Call Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 for assistance on your repair.

you wii must be an korean wii and was changed by someone to be a North American Wii.
System Menu 4.2 bricks all wiis that have gone through that and gives error 003
there's nothing you can really do about it excepting calling the Nintendo service center.

Please revert me, if you need more assistance, i would be very glad to assist you more.
If you were satisfied with the solution please rate this sollution.

Thanks For using FixYa!

003 error on wii

003 (Unathorised device) occurs after applying the latest 4.2 update. This is the first update Nintendo released that searches for mods/'hacks to the wii, and attempts to delete them; usually this indicating you have a Korean wii.

Looking at latest updates 4.2 - 003 error, you may be able to contact Nintendo and ask them how to resolve it.

There is also a potential fix, but you'll need a drivekey/dx wasabii mod chip, home brew disc with various IOS, plus update 4.1. Be prepared to spend a lot of time and effort, Nintendo didn't do this to make it easy for people to resolve it. Check

Sorry can't help any further at present
