I have a chipped WII and when I plug in the game the power light lights red , if I press either the power or the eject button the power button lights green and the blue light around the disc light up momentarilly and then the whole unit powers off. I have a game in the drive now I think its Boogie. Any help is welcome, I am in Denver Co.I have tried to let it set for a while and retried, that did not work. I also tried to plug in and press eject at the same time to try and remove the disc and that did not work either.

Depending on the chip and who installed it, it is probably shorting out something in your system. Even if the system was working before, it might have shifted or come loose. If it is only shorting your power switch then it would just be a simple adjustment of the chip. However, the chip could have shorted out your main board and when the system powers on, it detects the short and shuts itself off as a fail-safe. Removing the chip *might* fix it if it didn't totally fry the system.

Wii has solid red light, won't turn on, faint ticking noise


if it was dropped check the bluetooth module , they can come unplugged and the wii will not function. Children love to put change in the wii which can short it out. Never bridge a fuse as it can cause unsafe conditions and potentially a fire hazard .

Try pressing the power button down and holding it for a few seconds and see if your WII comes back to life. When I first got my Wii I would hold down the button just long enough for it to turn green. This seems like a standby mode. To get my Wii to turn off completly I needed to hold down
the button until it turned red and when restarting the WII I held doen the button until the Wii started back up.

Black Screen at Boot Up of Wii


Well if you have ever installed some type of a fail safe program you can enter it by either pressing the reset button and holding it immediately after powering on the Wii from when the light is RED. Or you can plug in a game cube controller and hold the Y button when you power it on from the red light. Supposing this works, and you log into something like starfall, then you can try something like change the IOS that the system menu runs off from to IOS249. This option would be found somewhere in the settings options I believe. I had a similar problem and this worked for me.

Wii Remote doesn't work


1. Make sure that your batteries are in correctly. See working Wiimote for reference.

2. When you sync the Wiimote, press the red button in the battery compartment and immediately there after, press red sync button in the Wii Console front panel (where the SD card goes between the Eject and Reset buttons).

3. Power off Wii console completely and restart.

4. Press any button on the Wiimote to activate.

5. If the above steps don't work, you may want to return it to the store for a replacement.

Good luck!

Wii fit balance board


Make sure that whatever game you are playing (ie: Wii Fit) is fully loaded before pressing the power button.

If the light continues to go off, you may need to re-sync your Wii Fit balance board to the console. To do this, load Wii Fit, and when the program is running, press the red button inside the battery cover. Immediately press the same type of red button inside the panel on the Wii located between the eject and reset buttons (on the face).

If these steps don't work, try fresh new alkaline batteries and repeat.

Note that there have been lots of complaints using rechargable batteries. I've had the same alkalines in my unit for 3 months now. If insistent on using rechargables, I suggest buying several of the same battery and a quick (15 minute or 1 hr) charger as opposed to ANY after-market recharging product. It will be cheaper and more reliable.

Good luck!
