    Can't get past "press A" dialog. changed batteries, tried other controller, turned off Wii and back on not get crosshairs on screen, checked all jack inputs by removing and securily plugging back in.

Turn off for a moment, try again, reconnect your controller.

Since its brand new, you can get it replaced if that doesn't work, dont waste your energy on it, just get another one, free replacement / warraty. Im sure.

Paper stuck in wii where u insert the games

Well, the best thing to do is too not put paper in the Wii console?! Uhm, try tugging at it a little bit. But, if you can't get it. It's a life lesson well learned. Hope this helps! (:

003 error on wii

Uh oh.
Sounds like you accidentally bought a hacked Wii. When you upgrade the firmware found the hack and now your Wii may be bricked. Try this: while holding down the reset button, turn on the power to the Wii. If a menu comes up then your wii is definitely hacked but it has a brick safety program to get you out of it. If nothing happens then you may be out of luck. Since you bought from Korea and it still allows you to play it in America then there is a good chance that your Wii is modded. I would say return it to the person you got it from but that seems to be out of the question.

Wii wont play games

Most common fix i've done for this issue is to take apart the wii and manually move the laser up and down the bars the laser slides on. If this doesn't work,a replacement drive is usually ~40-50$usd . If you find yourself not able to either of these, find a local electronic repair person or call nintendo and see if maybe they have a list of qualified repair companies local to you.

Wii Remote Problems!!

This is factory default with the Nintendo Wii, Try simply removing the batteries when done, OR!, which I do, is hold my hand over the top of the WiiMote and then press the power button, this prevents the Wii from getting the remote's instruction to power down, the remote thinks the Wii got it and then shuts down. Good Luck!

My wii is not working

If it's orange that means it is turned off. It turns green when you turn it on. Insert a disc, press the power button or hit eject.

Slot Light

The disk slot comes on briefly when:
-You turn the power on
-You put a disk in or take one out

And it pulses when you have a new message on your Wii message board. It does not stay lit while the Wii is on.
