    Wii turning itself off

    Hiya,

    apologies if this has been bought up before but couldn't see anything about this specific problem. I just set up my Wii this morning and have been using it all day however it keeps turning itself off! It's happened three times. The only thing I can think is that it's overheating but why would it do that? It's got plenty of room to breathe. It cuts out after being on for an hour, maybe hour & half tops. Anything I can do or has anyone else had the same problem...or have I just got a duff one!

    Thanks for reading.

    Yes it is - not exactly burning or anything but certainly very very warm, much warmer than I would expect. Also the discs come out of the drive warm too.

    This is probably a really stupid question but should it be completely silent? I was expecting there to be a bit of fan noise. There's none!

    If theres no noise, then you probably have a faulty Wii which the Fans are broken or bugged. There should be a fan noise (and the loading/reading noises)

    Only when the disc is in.

    Leave it for an hour.

    Also make sure its got room around it.

    Thanks. I think that's probably it. It makes a noise when it's loading / reading games but is silent when it's not, even if I press my ear right up against it, can't hear a thing. Back to Nintendo I guess then

    They should ship you a new Wii if you ask, unless you tampered with it etc. The beeping/itching noises are normal, but when a game is in there should be the fan noise for sure.

    :/

    When on STANDBY tho, there is no fan. (red light)
