    My Wii is almost dead. First the News channel doesn’t work, then the remote goes weird and now it doesn’t read any discs. I’m going to call Nintendo in the morning as there 24hour(!) hotline is closed. I think they will have to replace it. Anyone else been through that process?

    this happened when i first got my wii. But then it stopped shortly after. But yeah you should call nintendo about that.

    And welcome to wiichat, enjoy your stay!

    Good Luck getting your wii fixed :)

    I have only had controller problems, but I would recommend making sure that you checked all other possibilities of why there are problems. Otherwise, give them a call; they seem to have a great reputation for customer service.

    Are you putting the discs in right? Just checking all realms of possibility here.

    wow this is crap. i haven't had any problems.yet.
    but i feel for you man.
    like suggested above try reformatting. its should work unless the issue is related to the hardware.

    I've phoned Nintendo (like 8 times).....no answer....I phone Argos where I brought it from and they telling me a month before they could replace it.

    I'll try the formatting and I'll try Nintendo again tomorrow.

    Do you have a launch Wii? Sometimes the launch wiis are worse than the newer ones. I have a launch Wii but I havnt had any problems yet.
