My Wii system has black jumping vertical lines going across the screen. Gets worse sometimes as the system gets warmed up. Sometimes it does it very little. Twice the screen has frozen up in the middle of playing a game. Does not matter what game I am playing. Any advice? any one else experiencing
Thanks for the sig, gidget!

A couple of days ago I turned on my wii only to find little silvery lines running down the screen. It resembles and old crt telly getting interference from a hairdryer. The lines are intermitent and very annoying, they almost flash. This is very annoying so I tried to double check everything.
I've tried the wii on three different TVs and the problem is still there. I've changed the settings on the wii menu (screen etc) and that makes no difference. As I said the best way to describe it is like an old crt TV getting interference - but there is no hairdryer on!
I'm sad to say that I think this is a problem that I cannot fix and it needs repairing properly. My wii is just under a year old - can I get it fixed for free, I have no reciept though. Any help on returning/getting a wii fixed would be great.
Yep its free just send it back to Nintendo and theyll fix and pay for the shipping. Usually takes about a week.[/quote]
I have exactly the same problem. static interference running in my tv screen. it even affects another tv set a few meters away.
anyway my question is i bought my wii in Los Angeles, CA USA and I brought it home to the philippines. where do i exactly send my wii for repair? the shop where i bought it or to nintendo? how do i do it?
i just got the wii today, an early christmas present for my brother and I. i plugged in everything, and i turned it on and nothing. in the place where you plug in the av cables, i plugged in my PS2 to make suer that wasnt the problem, and it turned on and went to screen no problem. when i turn on my wii, the power light comes on, and i can hear it working, but nothing comes up on my screen. someone help, please!
Just wanted to add a little experience I just just had: I bought my Wii about a month ago for my kids.Since I work and study full time I hadn't had a chance to test it yet.Imagine my disappointment when my kids woke up on X-mas morning and couldn't get it to work!
Well,after a thorough research, searches on the net and much arguing with my wife we finally found out:the darn disk was being inserted backwards! All is happy now in Wii land.
Happy to have discovered this forum though.Will be visiting often.Merry X-mas to all!
What a piece of garbage. Disc error and no live support available from nintendo. I'm going back to playing COD4 on 360 and using the wii as my $250 drink coaster, my kids can cry their hearts out.
10 y/o daughter got a Wii from Santa. After setting up, console won't accept CD. Any ideas? Thanks!
Another disk read error. The disk simply won't seat and spits it back out. Yes, it's being loaded on it's correct side. Another $250 paperweight here, too.

Well I had a similiar issue at one point with Gamecube games. My issue however was originating from a second party Gamecube remote.
Try inserting Wii Sports with the console in standby mode. It worked for me aft I had to reformat my Wii.

Same thing as above. Have you tried updating your system......also are you trying to get the system to work with Wii Sports?? A few third party games have been known to be faulty. If these steps don't work you can bitethe bullet and return them. Issue there is that most stores don't have any on the shelves.

well it seems like the wii is a duffer. my daughter still has no Christmas present .Thanks Nintendo for refusing to send a replacement, just a pre paid sticker to return it. we might get it back in a few weeks..customer satisfaction eh.. time to visit thr consumer advice centre..maybe if we all complain we might get somewhere
