Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

My Wii freezes and has a loud buzzing. The only way to stop it is to unplug it. It is happening more and more. Is there a way to fix this from home or do I need to send it for repair? It only happens when I am playing Black Ops. I would be grateful for any advice. Many thanks.

The reason of the problem might be (Because of the game you say makes it happen) because of overheating. Be sure that the Wii is ventilated enough, make sure that the air entrances and exits are not blocked in anyway, if you have a cooler, make sure it's plugged in correctly. Also, try not playing the game for extended periods of time. Also make sure that the console is balanced so that when it reads the Disc, the motor won't make the console "dance". If the problems persist or you don't think it's an overheating problem, then you'll have to take it to repair, you can try and open it yourself and see if something is making the Optical Drive stop or get jammed, but you could void your guarantee or mess up your Wii for good. Open it and check it ONLY if you have some sort of knowledge in electronics or computer hardware.

My wii freezes and makes a loud buzzing sound. The only way I can get it to stop is to unplug it. What should I do?


For us, this only happens when we play "Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars". The Wii freezes up and the controller shakes, vibrates and buzzes. I can take the batteries out of the controller and that stops the shaking, vibrating and buzzing, but the wii is frozen until it's reset (unplugged from the wall in our case).
We've had the Wii for about three years and this is the first time it has ever done this. We play a lot of other games and have never seen this.
So I believe it's either a software bug in the Lego game or it's a software bug in the Wii Operating System.

The Wii picture is freezing, and there is a loud buzzing sound. It happens with any game played at randum times, also when we are watching netflix streaming. It happens speraticly at no set time interval....


There is most likely a hardware issue with the Wii. Something in the Wii is dying. Issues like this can only be fixed by sending the Wii to Nintendo (after calling them) or finding a local store with a specialist who has experience taking apart and fixing Wiis.

While playing the game, it will suddenly make a loud sound the freeze up. What can i do to do fix this?


I have the exact same problem when I play Lego Batman on my Wii. Unfortunately, since the Wii version is the same as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, it has lots of data that the Wii console can't handle sometimes, thus making that loud noise and freezing up. You can't fix it, but the best solution would be to:
1) Unplug the Wii, then plug it back in.
2) Start up the game and try that same part again. It should work. If it doesn't, just keep trying.
*Note: When you plug it back in and start the game again, don't do any other levels before the level that keeps freezing up and making that loud noise. I hope this helps.

Wii suddenly freezes during play?


You should make sure your disks are not scratched. To turn the wii off (without unplugging and all that).....Just hold the power button for a while on the counsle until it shuts off. Just out of curiousity.......and maybe a thing.........because this happened to me.........it froze because i entered a cheat and skipped to much in the game, but when i went back and did it the real way, it didn't freeze.
