ok...so I hadn't played my wii in a while. And it was not in standby mode. We had lost power during the period i wasn't playing it so it had the red LED on instead of the orange. My sister wanted to me to bring home my wii during thanksgiving so that she could try it out before she asked for one for xmas.
First: It seems my Wii makes more noise then i remembered it. i played Metroid 3 for a while and it was clicking like crazy.
Second: My wii crashes...i guess that's the best thing to call it. Sometimes (it happened twice in about 3 hours of play) the screen goes black and the wiimote seems to lose connection but the power on the wii stays on. after a few seconds the screen comes back up and the remote with reconnect with the press of any button. Has anyone else seen this? And does anyone have any ides of what it may be?
Third: I bought the wii in feb/march. i have the box it came in but i don't know if i can find the recipt. am I pretty much screwed if it needs repairs?
