Wii Repair Guide
Need a quick and easy-to-follow Wii repair guide to fix problems with your Nintendo Wii? Several tips will get you up and running again without requiring any complicated maintenance, and won't require you spend any money. These repairs, as recommended by Nintendo Wii's web site, cover common problems and show you ways to repair them without damaging your Wii or violating your warranty.
Items You'll Need:
- Soft cloth
- Vacuum cleaner with small attachment hose
- Window cleaning liquid
- CD cleaning cloth
- Wii lens cleaning kit
- Reconnect your Wii remote. If your Wii remote control is not working, turn off the power to the Nintendo Wii and remove the batteries from your remote. Reinsert the batteries and press the "A" button. If no lights appear on the remote, insert new batteries. Turn the Wii back on and hold the "SYNC" button located inside the protective flap on the front of your Wii. Locate the matching "SYNC" button on the remote and press it as well. The Wii should reconnect the controller to the console.
- Clean out dust and dirt build up. Before trying other methods in the Wii repair guide, try cleaning your Wii to remove any dust or dirt that may be causing interference while you play. Wipe off the back vents with a soft cloth or suck up the dust with a small vacuum hose attachment. Wipe the outside of the console with a soft cloth lightly sprayed with window cleaning liquid. Spray the cloth and not the Wii itself. Repeat this cleaning every few weeks to prevent dust and dirt from returning.
- Clean off discs to avoid a disc read error. If your discs won't load or have problems playing, either the lens of the Wii needs cleaning or the disc itself. Start by removing the disc and cleaning it with a dry CD cleaning cloth. Move in up and down motions, never in circles. If the Wii still will not play any games, you'll need to clean the inside lens. To avoid violating your warranty and possibly damaging the Wii, purchase a Wii Lens Cleaning Kit and follow the instructions to get your Wii up and running again.
