My dog knocked over our wii and now the cd won't read. Any suggestions?
Lol, nice one.
Erm.. try things like resetting and unplugging and all that jazz, if not tell Ninty, should give ya a new one with the warranty.
accidental damage isnt covered.
Thats why you don't tell them that the dog knocked it over.
so what do i say to get a new one?
Just tell them what its doing except leave out the part about the dog and the part about it falling.
might just be something easy knocked loose. but knocked loose means a fall, so you might be screwed. but you should try to send it in, worst that can happen is they wont fix it.
maybe your putting it in wrong
tell them you just recived it as an bday gift (unless you registered the unit!), and say that its just not reading. You took it back to the store but they dont have any stock and none planned and ask if they can replace it under warranty.
that way it looks like the box was knocked during delivery or somthing lol.
lol i used to get so many returns back in the day at radioshack with people who did that! cleaver as all hell.
never bothered me though cause it was never my return
god i hated retail though! thank god i dont do it anymore!!!!:thumbsup:
Or charge a fee.
Nintendo is known for their EXTREMELY good costumer support. They will repair it or send a replacement.
My Wii is starting to make weird noises and won't always star the disks after I select the channel. Nothing huge, but I'm thinking about calling them about it.
No worries friend... just tell Nini whats wrong leave out the dog and vuala...
ohh and next time put an electric fence around it :thumbsup:
yeah man, i know how you feel, not that my dog knocked down my wii, but theyve done very similar things in the past. thats why i always keep the door to my room shut, too many valuables on the floor.
Nintendo are good. I remember when I had a problem with my NES and I Was about 8.
I went to the nearest nintendo warehouse/repair depot and I possibly became the first child in england to see the SNES in action, (or so they told me) They'd just gotten one in through the doors for testing or somthing.
The sods wouldn't let me play on it tho!
On top of that I got my NES repaired on the spot so yeah good customer service
I've had this happen before with a PS2 reading of the games. I'm not sure if you mentioned trying a different game inside the console (if you did, I didn't see it). This will determine whether the console is broken, or if you just destroyed the game.
In my experience, a dropped PS2 resulting from jerking the controller...thanks, wires....caused the system to fall to the floor from the entertainment system. The result was as ring on the game, similar to a massive circular scratch you might find on a CD. The game was, therefore, useless, but the system was fine.
If your system is still acting irritable with a game that wasn't in when fido booted the console, I would have to agree with the others posted above, at least they'll fix it for cheaper than buying a new one. If it's the game that's now scratched beyond repair, I say you're S.O.L.
go to the place you went yo buy the wii and tell him that it broke ask for a refund
If he did that then he wouldn't get another Wii for a while.
