It appears that the configuration of the console is intact. The same console that was sent for repairs was returned. The Miis are there as are the saved games. It is clear that they didn't erase any of the memory. I don't have any VC games so I can't speak to that.
My Wii Repair Experience
FWIW here is my experience returning a Wii for repairs. Hopefully, this post will clear up some of the mis-information surrounding this process.
The Wii that Santa brought us was experiencing some problems, nothing that couldn't be worked around but unacceptable...
Thanks for the response.
When I do what you suggest, the four lights on the 2nd remote flash and then nothing....also it seems to cause the 1st remote to lose synch.
When I synch the 2nd remote manually, it synchs as player 2 (the 1st remote is already synched as player 1).
I am having problems getting a second remote to work with my wii. I have to synch the 2nd remote everytime I start the console.
Here is what happens...start the console, hit A on remote #1 at the health and safety screen, hitting A on remote #2 causes remote #1 to lose synch...now both...
