    SO recently the blue light has been popping up when i get a message but today for some wierd reason, i have had about 11 messages and in all of the cases the light did not flash at all. It blinks when the console is powered up but thats about it.

    Does anyone know whats wrong. I checked my wii settings and the light itself is activated on. I hope my wii isnt messed again....sigh

    Samething is happening to me. Are you putting your Wii into Standby instead of powering it off? (Light being orange instead of Red?)

    normally my standby connection is off (red light) and my console unplugged.
    Thus when i turn it on the light normally pops up after start up but today....no light just a number change in the msg count

    you will not get a blue light if your consle is off.
    And it will not stay, when you turn it on, unless you were in standby mode.

    ...before you were saying something about messages...
    if it is not going on, at all, not even blinking, take it back, its defective.

    is it okay to have the wii in stand by mode, but still unplug it from the outlet...??


    going back to my original issue, i just dont understand why it happened today and how setting my console to stand by will fix it....seeing as how standby was off and the blue light appeared after the console was booted up

    no purpose to keep it plugged in 24/7..... i mean it stays on from the point of initial play to the point before i go to bed and that is when i unplug it. I plug it back in when i play again

    can anyone address my standby / unplug question above?

    Will get to that in a second, but let me just say that i really don't think its nessesary to be unplugging it so often. Keeping it plugged in and on standby mode would be the wisest.
    That way the internet is still connected.

    Im not arguing with you here but..why though...i understand it in term of convince when a new update comes out but is there really a purpose to have it on ALL the time especially if you dont play it for 5 or more days?

    Well it is your dicision, and if that works with you, thats fine.
    There might have been some miscommunication above, so let's recap quickly.
    your Wii's disk slot is not lighting up at all, correct?
    not even when the console starts up (should blink once fast)?

    Not exactly my friend...this is whats going on:

    Everytime i start the wii up the slot illuminates briefly (stays lit for about a second)

    In the past couple of days when i got a message the disc slot would illuminate until i checked the message

    Today for some reason, i got many messages and in each case the slot did not illuminate nor blink. The only way i would know if i have new messages, would be when i come out of a game or mii channel and would notice an increase in my message counter.

    I was just wondering why did the slot not function properly today? It still blinks when the console is turned on but nothing happens when i get a message.

    My settings are correct.
    I have tried to unplug it and send myself a message to see if it will illuminate but no dice.
    Any tips on how to fix it?

    I don't think the disc slot will light up unless your Wii is in standby mode, or on.
    You have it off, and unplugged, so it will not light up.

    Your still not getting it, i would plug the system in, and turn it on and normally the slot would illuminate notifying me of a new message but today the slot did not illuminate

    I apologize but your jumping all over the place...
    Was your wii on or off when the slot was supposed to light up, but didn't?
