While my son was playing the starwars lego wii game, it suddenly froze in one spot and the wii made a strange ,but loud buzz sound?
We had to unplug the wii from the wall to ake it stop.
The wii still works fine now , but I would like to know what caused this?
And on a side note, the same thing use to happen with the game cube too?

Re: 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. --John

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.
Games freezing up on the DS is not a common occurance because Nintendo made the the ds-slot with a spring mechanism which makes the games go in and out perfectly every time. However sometimes the metal of the cartridge doesn't meet the metal in the DS perfectly because of dust or a hair, and since this has only happened in the Lego game the problem is probably in your cartridge.
The one thing you can do to clean the cartridge is get a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol then clean the metal part of the game. Let dry then play.
If that doesn't work the problem is actually within the cartridge, meaning the game is broken. If this is the case you can take it back to GameStop and talk to them about it again.
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.
Please make sure you don't have your wii sitting on the carpet. Make sure the wii is sitting in the silver stand and it is on a hard surface. Carpet will make the wii overheat. Do not put the wii around any other components like home theater equipment, cable box, etc. Keep it cool by making sure air can move around it and keep it away from other hot objects.
