    Sounds like a faulty wii to me.

    But lemme ask you.

    1. Is this a new wii?
    2. Is it still under warranty?
    3. Does it happen only with Madden?
    4. Have you tried booting the wii up with nothing in it?

    Good questions Trulen. I also suggest phoning nintendo (their number is in your wii intsruction manual) They have good advice (hell, they made it)

    1. Is this a new wii?i got it at christmas
    2. Is it still under warranty? i have no clue tbh
    3. Does it happen only with Madden? i cant put madden in due to me not being able to turn it on for longer then like half a second
    4. Have you tried booting the wii up with nothing in it? i cant get my wii sports out because the machine wont stay on long enough.


    and i dont know the nintendo number i dunno where i put my box

    Try replugging in the wii, so you get the red light.
    And then press the eject button, so maybe Wii Sports will come out.

    And then try to turn your wii on. Then tell me what happened.

    If you registered your Wii through Nintendo you get a free 3 month extension to the warranty right? If so I think his system is covered until at least Jan of 2008

    what if he doesnt have a warranty? Does he just mail it to nintendo and pay a repairing fee or is he screwed. 900 posts YEEEEEEEEEEHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

    But everyone gets a 1 year warranty unless you have opened the console right?
    (even then Nintendo has repaired systems for free).

    But yes if you don't have a warranty Nintendo will still fix it for a fee because gamecubes could be fixed out of warranty.

    "Calling our Customer Support number at 1-800-255-3700 between 6am and 7pm (PST) 7 days a week."

    They are VERY nice. You will be impressed.

    Well, I have no idea what to tell you then.

    The only thing I can tell you besides calling Nintendo, is to leave your wii unplugged for a little while.

    Though it sounds like it's related to your CD drive thing.

    Do you have it plugged into a surge suppressor? Not a surge protector but specifically suppressor?

    You should consider plugging all of your equipment into a surge suppressor including the TV. It will keep it from getting killed from bad power

    So the light is staying green but there is no picture or sound? Have you tried removing the AV cable and putting it back in?
