    Hey everyone, i wanted to give you all a heads up on a wii system screw up. Many wiis are quite silent when playing games and won't bother you remotely while playing. But i had a launch day wii and about 6 months in it has begun to make a much louder hmm (disc spinning). I thought nothing of it. Then last night i tried to play wii sports, and disc error appreared . I thought that had the error because the disc was pretty scratched up. So i decided against trying again wii sports again and wait to get it cleaned the next morning (every other game was working fine up to this point). So today i play MoHH2 for maybe 10 mins this morning and battalion wars2 about 20 mins then went to church. After church i went to get wii sports polished, so most scratches are removed and i went home to try it out.

    So i pop it in and i hear its regular loud hum, then it give me the disc read error. "Oh well i thought, what a horrible back up plan to play Mohh2:lol: "
    So i put that in then it freezes 3 times in a row. So then i call nintendo the lady is friendly and runs me through the trouble shooting. After that, she tells me to put in bwii2. So i do it runs fine. But then she say i should send it in for repair or for a fully new one. So theres my story, so if your wii begins to hum excessively loud, or sounds like it is trying to launch into orbit be forewarned that you might want to get the laser check.

    I wish quiet peacefully playing wiis, and put in some hours for me!

    I think mine is a little louder than it used to be but it works fine. Do Wii's have a crappy disk drive or something?

    I bought my Wii from a friend who got it the day of its launch (all he does is play Halo, so he didn't have use for it anymore & knew I wanted to buy one), so thanks for the heads up!!! Knock on wood, I haven't had this problem...

    actually mine once broke about 2 weeks after christmas.... i thought my little brother shoved a gamecube game in with the call of duty 3 already in there...i couldn't pop any disc out or in...eventually, we had to send it to nintendo. they r4eturned it, everything worked fine...except for the constant click clack tack sound

    edit: my dad waited 14 hours in line for my wii the day it came out, he said he was at a party thingy with my my mom...so yea, its a launch day wii, even though i didn't get it until christmas and my dad gave it away (same thing when i got my gc) by letting me open a game my uncle (same uncle both times) gave me but he "thought" the game would work with my old system....my mom was so pissed

    I thought mine was loud once when playing LoZ:TP, but I think it was just me...I was playing late at night and I think it just seemed loud. Hopefully this is not a common problem, it would be a major blow to Nintendo's Rep and then PR would have to work hard to smooth things over. I hope everything works out for you all right

    I have a launch Wii and have had no problems.

    Probably just a manufacturing defect in your unit that has caused failure over time.

    Not like the 33% failure rate on XBox 360's... Just saying...

    I also have a launch day Wii and haven't had any problems.
    Sorry about the problems you're experiencing....at least Nintendo has good customer service so you can get it fixed up. :)

    I got my Wii at launch, and I haven't had any problems out of it yet, however my copy of MP3 acts pretty screwy at times.

    There will always be a small amount of every product that is released that will be faulty this can not be helped some products that have a poor hardware design have more problems then others (ie the original 360 cooling system) But the company usually fixes somethings in future versions of the same product to fix these problems Nintendo them selfs had a problem with the hinges on ds lites having cracked hinges if you have a problem with your Wii or any other product under warranty 99% of the time if its not your fault they will replace it free of charge (except maybe shipping of like $5 but it depends).

    The Wii has very little problem to produced ratios so there is nothing to worry about if you have a problem call the 1-800 number right away.

    P.S. I love the 360 so don't come and flame me its true the original cooling system was flawed everyone knows it.
