I've sent mine in after deleting the homebrew, and they didn't say anything.

Well, I still don't feel like doing it, but we'll see...

All you have to do is reinstall the original Firmware which is incredibly easy, a press of a button is all :D
Then you are back to a stock wii :]

Post Re: Wii Will Not Start
Finally got to a place today where I had to call Nintendo Support. I couldn't download a couple WiiWare titles (review copies) because of my Mii Channel error message (memory corrupt). The guy told me to go ahead with the Mii Channel format and that should fix my standby issue too. Long story short, it didn't really fix any of the problems, and I still kinda have the Mii Channel issue, lost all my Miis, and I've not had a chance to try the standy thing yet. However, I was finally able to download at least one of the WiiWare games. lol I called again, but I was on hold way too long and had to go. I'll try again later.

They didn't give me that option. I was actually just hoping they would say, "Send it to us," but they didn't. They've just been trying to help me without having to go through the issues of sending it in and charging me $70.

Just ask them if you can send it in to them without bul****ing around. It should be a pretty simple process :]

I need to hold onto it for a bit more, cause I've got some games to review. But hopefully soon, I'll have some time to let it go for a bit.

Well, I never got my Miis back, as I lost them in the Mii Channel format...that was pointless, because I still randomly get that error every once in a while. I still cannot leave my Wii in standby more than 20-30 minutes, or the picture/sound will not come on. The weird thing is that the TV acts like the signal has changed. It goes from having the blue no signal screen to black...but the Wii never shows up. So, I just keep it turned off until I play. It's annoying, but it works and has prevented me from sending it in (paying money and having time w/o it).

Well I have had some problems with the WiiConnect24 and leaving my Wii in standby for a couple of years now. I don't know how accurate this is, but I read that leaving your Wii in standby with the WiiConnect24 on causes the GPU to overheat and can damage it some extent. I now have some minor black pixelation happening in certain games or on certain screens. It is not enough to warrant sending it in for repair but it is a minor annoyance regardless. Do you have this issue? I noticed it while playing Metroid Prime 3: Corruption during the cutscenes in the Cloud City(?) level whenever I called my ship to my location and the cutscene would play the pixelation would occur.

On a side note I noticed the discussion of hacking your Wii was brought up. I can understand your hesitation and from what I have read up on the subject, even if you removed the Homebrew from your Wii, Nintendo is able to run a disc which checks for the certain software modifications made to your system, which if found they will not repair your console. You had made mention of certain save files and how you can't copy them to your sd card. I speak from experience and can say there is a homebrew application which manages all your save files and allows you to copy ALL of them over to your sd card and copy them back over to your Wii. I said I speak from experience but I want to stress that I am not a 'pirate' nor do I advocate illegally downloading/stealing games of any kind whatsoever - just in case anyone reading this reply may make an assumption otherwise. Hattrick, if you are interested to learn more about this PM me. If not that's fine because from what I read of your earlier post I understand and respect your position.

My Wii suffered from that issue within the warranty period of when I bought it. I think I leave my Wii off most of the time so that it doesnt happen again. Nintendo termed the issue as a broken motherboard and fixed it (all my saves and vc games stayed on the wii for I was glad). But that pixelation was annoying, there are videos of it on the youtube of others with it, artifacting I think.

Yeah my 'pixelation' has never been that bad, never as bad as any of the videos I've seen on Youtube but it is noticeable only in a handful of situations though.

I've never had the pixilation problems...just the screen/sound not working after standby...and then the Mii Channel data (still upset I lost all my Miis.....).

So, it is happening again... Which means if I can't get it to turn on, I will not be able to update it and transfer my data to my Wii U.

Grrrrrr!

So, after doing a bit of testing, it seems like it gets overheated when I leave it on standby/WiiConnect24. If I turn it all the way off between uses, it fires up w/ no problems the next time. But if left on standby for more than an hour or so, it will only display a black screen w/o sound when turned on. And before everyone suggests putting it in a well-ventilated area, it is sitting beside my TV on top of the TV-stand, beside a window...plenty of air/ventilation.


I've never put my Wii on STBY, so I wouldn't know. However, I do reccommend that you speak to Nintendo if it happens again, even if you can solve the problem yourself.

EDIT: Sorry, I din't read the rest of the posts, I think you should tell Nintendo about it. Unless, of course, you've already got the Wii U and transferred, in which there is no point.

His post above yours says he transferred it to Wii U. I also did mine since I wasn't sure how the disc drive would turn out. I'm only keeping mine around for the Gamecube support right now. All my Wii stuff is transferred to the U, and I don't own a GameCube anymore but kept my games and controllers.
