    *possessed* wii

    so the blue light in my wii's optical drive has been turning on randomly all by itself (console remains off- red light near power button, but blue light glistening around drive)...

    it will be off and i will be doing homework and i will look up and it will all of a sudden start emitting the blue light that cycically gets brighter and dimmer... almost like it is saying "play with me" in an ominous voice..

    but seriously, anyone else been having this problem? i am starting to think something is wrong... we already had to send one wii back because it quit working.

    dude, it's not a problem, it means that you got a new message in the Wii so they are announcing that..what you need to do is turn it on and check by yourself dude

    looks like there is a nintendo update that adds a poll channel where you can vote your opinion and predict outcomes.

    Are you sure it's a red light though? Make sure it's not orange, red light means the Wii is totally off, orange means its in a "sleep mode" where it's still connected to the internet and taking update notifications and friend messages.

    Yeah, if the light is red, the blue light shouldn't come on. o-o

    And.. I thought this was going to be a thread about someone getting their Wii taken away by the government or something. Maybe your Wii is possessed.

    i was getting the "disk read error". Quite a few people have been experiencing it with their new wii's... it's not that uncommon. Call up Nintendo. It has been occuring due to defective optical drives and because of defective wii sports games.

    that's because you're probably turning it off wrong. Turn the console off by holding down the power button on the wii remote, not the console's power button.

    Haha this thread made me laugh.
    Easy mistake though.
    My friend thought his Wii was broken when that happened.

    It's still weird that it's receiving messages when it's powered completely off. Red power light means it's completely shut down, anything more and it would be unplugged.

    It should only receive messages and notifications when it's on standby connection or fully powered on.
