Hi folks. I just wanted to post a couple problems I have had with my Wii recently and some solutions. Hopefully these may work for others.
First problem I had a couple days ago. The Wii started making this loud clicking noise whenever there was a screen transition (like from the Wii menu or during a game). Thankfully I was able to return it to where I bought it and they gave me a brand new console. If your Wii starts making this noise it is a hardware issue and you should either return it or send it in for repair.
One day my hand icon started jumping all over the screen so I called Nintendo tech support and they told me it was a sensor issue. The tech asked if the sensor was on the TV and if there were any bright areas around where the TV was located. I said there was since my TV sits in front of my windows and even with the shades drawn the sunlight was still effecting the sensitivity of the Wiimote sensor. Drawing the blinds as well as the shades fixed that problem. So if you start having that jerky hand icon issue then make sure your TV (or the sensor bar) isn't near another bright light source.
If you do not use the Wiimote for a certain period of time it will go to sleep. This is actually a good thing, because when the Wiimote goes to sleep it is conserving on the batteries and you just need to hit the "A" button to wake it up again.
I was playing Zelda one day and suddenly the game froze. I panicked and called tech support and they informed me that if you play the Wii for a long time (in my case it was ten hours) then there's a slight possibility of the game freezing. I simply ejected the disc, turned the Wii off for a while, then turned it back on, inserted the game disc again and everything was fine.
I have found that the Wii behaves better sitting upright in its stand. I believe this is because it dissipates heat better in the upright position. Also, it's a good idea to make sure the Wii has lots of open room around it. I first had mine sitting flat underneath my TV in a little cubby hole and I found it got quite warm down there. Once I moved it out from under the TV and placed it in the stand it never got more than lukewarm, even after playing a game for several hours. They also make cooling units for the Wii, which is probably a good idea considering you spent $250 on it. Better to be safe than sorry.
Well that's about it. I hope this may help anyone who encounters these issues.

Ok, maybe somebody here can tell me what's up with my Wii. I've been having a problem for about a week now. I finally got my Wii hooked up to the internet about a month ago. The first thing I did was purchase a bunch of virtual console games...I think I've got about 30 now (and still have about 900 blocks of free memory available). Anyway, this past week I was playing Ogre Battle, and I noticed my screen would glitch every now and then. I didn't think anything about it at first, I just thought it was the way Ogre Battle was programed or something. After a while the glitches started seeming more frequent (about every minute or two). When I say glitch, what I mean is that the screen kind of blurs for a fraction of a second. It gets pretty annoying after a while. Well, I tried playing some other games since then (Super Mario 2, Altered Beast, Super Punch-Out) and they're starting to do it too. Does anyone know whats causing this and if there's a way to fix it?
I'm kind of worried that it might be an overheating problem, not due to my Wii but because of my X-Box 360. I have both systems in my entertainment cabinet, and the 360 is on the shelf below it. When I use my 360 I always try to open my cabinet to make sure it vents, but I have felt that my Wii has gotten hot before. I got a fan for my 360 a few weeks ago and I think its helping it cool off a bit. I think I still have my warranty on the Wii if its a problem that can't be fixed, but if I exchange it I lose all the games I just downloaded Please help!
I have tried unplugging and leaving it unplugged for hours and still no lights, HELP!! I travel alot and I need my WII in the hotels.
My Wii won't turn on! It's barely over a year old (just enough that it'd pull a $75 bill from a factory repair). I simply sat down to play it, and it won't turn on. The buttons do nothing. It's plugged in correctly, I've checked and re-checked, and re-checked. I've also read in other locales that unplugging it for a while helps. I've done this a half dozen times for different lengths of time.
Any thoughts? Is it likely to be the power cord or something? I'm quite pissed.
I know the feeling, im on the road all the time, this time a three week stint in a hotel so I decided to pack my wii, haven't used it in about 4 months since I got back from Antarctica, I get to my hotel room and set it up!! NO POWER on it!! How could it just go bad?? I tried every outlet in this room,, UI dont get it..
Both of my Wii controllers stopped working properly. Their pointer works fine, but the accelerometers (like you use in Wii Golf) are very sluggish and unpredictable, and the controller sound is intermittent. They can't both have failed at once?!? It's like you're underwater when you swing the controller - sometimes its just delayed, sometimes the degree of swing seems slowed. I replaced the batteries - no change. Anybody else seen this?
