    I just purchased a Nintendo Wii and it crashed within the first 15 minutes of Wii Play. I eventually had to unplug it before being able to turn it off. I think this may be normal behavior because I have read numerous similar stories on this forum, but I'm unsure. Should I inform Nintendo of my problem or do you think my Nintendo Wii if fine? Thank you for your responses in advance.

    Don't fret too much. This happened to me my first time playing about 25 minutes in. After I unplugged it to turn it off after trying eveyr power switch known to man I looked at the cords in the back and the power cord into the Wii was no plugged in securely once I fixed this my Wii hasnt froze since.

    Don't worry the same thing has happened to me twice since I've bought my Wii, just unplug it, plug it back in carry on doing w/e.

    If it keeps happening, give Nintendo a call. But it should be fine.

    happened to me 3 times during SSX Blur. That's when i got the game though, not the system. After a few plays with it more it suddenly stopped. So don't panic!

    FYI: no need to unplug when its frozen. just hold power button on the wii console for 5 seconds and it will shutdown. once red light is on, then push power to turn it back on.

    My Nintendo Wii just crashed two more times today within ten minutes! I was playing the GameCube version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess when the screen froze. I could here everything but the image was frozen. It isn't even warm so it probably isn't overheating. I have no idea what to do!

    Call Nintendo like everyone says on this thread and they might send you a new Wii
