    something wrong with my wii?

    Yesterday me and my freind were bout 2 use the wii, i noticed the wii was really hot, especially in the middle of it and it still is boiling hot, it never used to do that, and i have never moved the wii from where i first put it and the only way it cools down is if i unplug it.Is it normal for it to be really hot? i havent been using it a lot lately, not sure how it can be that hot.

    This Only Happens When Your Wii Is On The "Standby" Setting... In Other Words, It Has The Orange Light Instead Of The Green Light...

    It Doesn't Hurt It, Not At All... Because Mine Has Been Online And On Standby Since Launch!(Nov 19, 2006)

    So, Don't Worry About It.

    feel free to give rep!

    Meh

    Well instead of spending money do you have a normal fan? Like a small desk fan? If you do then just put that behind it I did that with my ps2 and it never over heated after that. Besides the fan probably has different speeds and doubles as a semi portable fan for you :P yes I'm cheap thank you all for pointing that out XP

    OR, you can just trust that nintendo did extensive heat test with the machine on and off and standby. Yes, mine gets hot to, but I dont worry. Its hot....but its not scolding. The temp that you would read off of it would probably be about 40 - 45 C. Thats not bad without fans...in fact its quite good. Now if it hurts to keep your hand there longer than 30 seconds...then you have a problem.

    Before you worry, try taking the temp. If its above 55 C then I would worry, otherwise, dont worry.

    Mine has been on since UK launch day - it has never got hot or even close to something I would call hot.

    Have you got good ventelation around the unit?

    It should be warm and not "boiling hot". It may also be the position you keep your wii. Keeping it standing vertically allows more air to pass on both sides so it remains a lot cooler than when standing horizontally. Although personally I keep it lying horizontally and mine is fine.
