Question about Nintendo Wii Console
My brother somehow sent an email to the Wii with a picture thats about 9000x7000 pixels and now after 2 secons of being on it freezes up. I had to hold the power button for 10 seconds to turn it off. Please help me!
Mowcius, Thanks for the idea about the battery! If this happens again, I will remember that.
We were able to get the Wii going again and it was short on memory, so this seems as if it is likely something related. This is how we got ours going again...
We unplugged it from the wall outlet for 3 full days (possibly same as if we had taken out the battery?)
When we turned it back on, went straight into Setup Menu and reset it to factory settings... we did lose everything, but I was thankfully able to go through and retrieve all the Wii games we bought. (I didn't download them all, cuz I didn't want the memory overfilled again...) but, only the ones that we actually all like playing. We lost all the Mii's... but, we are just happy to have the other stuff back! Don't care about the mii's much anyway:)
We did try the 'no power' for only one day the first time...and the Wii responded longer, but froze when we got to the Setup Menu... 2 days unplugged from wall outlet worked!
Thanks! Hope this helps someone else!

Your wii may be short on memory like one person has mentioned.
If it will not turn on then on the bottom at the back there is a little plastic bit screwed on, (it may need a tri wing screwdriver) this contains the battery. If you remove this for a couple of hours when the wii is not connected to any power then it will reset it. It should then turn on and ask you all the things it did when you first got it. Your data should still be on the wii and I would then advise removing anything you do not need by going into the wii menu and going on data management. If this does not help then you would probably need to send it in for repair :(

I have a temporary solution. While at the black start up screen when you turn on the wii, hold down the + and - buttons then press A. You will go into maitnence mode and disable the message board. Since it is disabled, it shouldn't give you the death message. From there you can do anything you want with your wii, as long as it doesn't involve the wii message board.
