Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

Our Nintendo Wii can be switched on, the sreen can be seen but there is no "target" which means we can't use the remote. What's wrong? Is it maybe just the sensor or something more serious?

Why is lights blinking on wii controller

that means that the wii remote it out of reach (the light that human eyes cannot see is not seen) or you don't have the sensor plugged in,
or the black thing on top is dirty, and you need to clean it for it to work.
(this won't help if your wii is not responding to the wii remote.)

I'm trying to get netflix through my WII, and its telling me "not available in my region". what does that mean ?

Sorry to hear your having problems with your wii. It means that the region that you purchased your wii is not of USA or Canada. You can fix this from this information from Nintendo:
"Did you receive the message: "The Wii Shop Channel is not currently available in your region?"If you see this message when you try to access the Wii Shop Channel, then it appears your Wii console is set to the wrong region. To fix this:
  1. Select "Wii Options" in the lower-left corner of the Wii Menu.
  2. Select "Wii Settings" and click the right arrow twice to reach "Wii System Settings 3."
  3. Select "Country," and use the down arrow to scroll down the list, then select "United States" or "Canada."
  4. You will be informed that you will need to accept the User Agreements. To do this, select "User Agreements," click "Next," and "I Accept."
  5. Select "OK", and try accessing the Wii Shop Channel again."
This is from:
I hope this helps!

Try disabling the authentication on your wi-fi then see if the Wii will connect. If the Wii associates then you know there was something wrong with the settings.

This Nintendo page gives step-by-step directions for setting up the Internet connection on your Wii.
The bottom of the page lists a couple of error codes.
