    The Wii has a 1 year warranty. How could you only have 1 month left?

    Also, if you register your Wii at Nintendo.com, it will add another 90 days to your warranty.

    1) Yes, you can leave your Wii on standby mode overnight. As long as the Wii is not on, it's fine.
    2) Any Wii or Gamecube disc can stay in the disc drive as long as you want it, and nothing will glitch or go haywire.

    First time buying a Nintendo console?

    Raise your hand if your NES still works (as long as you blow on the games and smack the top of the console). *raises hand*

    1 - Not really,but it does get warm

    2- Not At All,leave them in forever if you want

    You shouldn't only have one month warranty,just register it at nintendo and you get extra 90 days

    Your console has a 1 year warranty. Now how close you are to that year ending is a different story. If you bought it new, it started when the SKU was scanned, if used, whenever the original purchaser bought it. Either way, you should be fine.

    Same here. Just make sure the wii is not in an enclosed area because when its on stand by it does use power and can overheat if it has no room to breathe

    Perhaps that's an extra warranty just through EBGames?

    Nintendo themselves warranty the console for 1 year (plus an additional 3 months if you register). It's in the manual.

    Yeah, i've worried at times, (mainly because my younger sister leaves it on overnight for no reason!), but I have checked it over and nothing has ever happened. I still don't like my sister playing the wii tho

    My Wii actually did break from leaving it on standby all the time (I think). Everytime I kept it on standby (orange light), or even playing a game (green light) it would shut off within 30 minutes. But, I sent it back to Nintendo and they fixed it at no cost. So I mean if you wanna be more cautious just hold in the power button everytime your done with it until the light turns red and you'll be fine. The game discs don't matter I always leave mine in.

    You can register your wii online nintendo.com but you'll have to create a profile and everything. Their was a promo warranty that extended your wii by 90 days so i'd check if they still offer. It probably won't breakdown anyway. the only prob i've had with nintendo was with the wavebird controllers.
