    jus to let you know, for replacement/ repair policy in U.S.

    two options:

    1. Repair; send wii in to nintendo they will try to fix it for free

    2. replacement; they send you a new wii, you put your old wii in the box the new one came in and send it back within 24 days or else they will charge your credit card. Only downside to this option is you lose all saved data unless you have it on a SD card.

    both are free, even shipping

    hope this helps

    I had a problem with my wii remote's batteries dying, then the remote not working when i replaces the batteries(wouldnt resync). However, thanks to this forum it now works again ^_^ Pointing the remote at the sensor bar rather than the console or TV screen helps a lot. All I did was turn on the console, press the sync button on the console and the remote At the same time, while pointing the remote at the sensor bar. This worked like a charm. Sorry if repost.

    Ninty Uk

    Hi All,

    I returned my console to Nintendo UK (at my own cost! ) via Royal Mail Special D.

    Checked with Royal Mail and it got delivered yesterday, called Ninty to make sure its been recorded as mine and they told me there is a 1 month back log on the post, and I should give it 2 weeks then call back again too see if it has been scanned yet!!!!!


    WTF - UK Wii Customers are being screwed!

    My Wiimote stops playing sounds at times when it should be. It's at max volume and when I turn up or down on the volume, the speaker doesn't produce any sound when it should. Any help into this would be appreciated. Also, it happens with new batteries put in.

    Try re-syncing your remote, i had that problem once and thats what i did to fix it.

    years ago, i bought a Playstation 2 cooling fan (3rd-party) on Lik-sang i think (R.I.P.), and it's USB, so i had the idea of ripping off the fan out of the plastic holder.

    what i got is:
    -the tiny fan (with 4 holding holes on the corners, like a standard computer fan have)
    -the wires (i have to force the tiny wires out of the hot glue used to stick the wires in place on the plastic, with a screwdriver, without damaging the wires)
    -the USB connector.

    it works fine on the Wii, but:

    -there's no holding space (i need to hold the fan since i don't have a plastic case holding it)
    -the wire is a bit too short
    -it's esthetically ugly (as i said, no case...)
    -best place to put the fan in at the air intake position, otherwise if you try putting the fan near the internal fan, while running, it force this one to spin faster, resulting in a big whoosh noise from the fan(s) spinning too fast, so it's not quiet, but that's because the fan i took spins too fast i think.

    so Nyko would need to use a quiet fan for the Wii if they want to keep a balance between quietness and performance/cool system.

    I took an old computer fan, spliced it with a usb and set it at the intake next to my wii. Its currently in the horizontal position and definitely reduces the temp in standby by about 8C. Extremely quiet. Pics at link

    yeah...for some reason, when my computer freeze while in Windows XP and i press on Reset, the network driver get corrupted, and i have to uninstall and re-install the driver...

    but it never froze while in Windows in the last 6 months. (it froze twice, a few months after i got the computer)

    but yeah...we would need something to hold the fan in place, as big as the Wii, quiet, and if possible esthetically good-looking.

    anyone know who made the small internal fan?
