Hi. My name is Adam Saunders and I live in the world of 1's and 0's. This is my tiny contribution the vastness of internet information. It's just an opinion and should you have your own, please comment it!

I left fixing the Nintendo Wii for ages. After speaking with Nintendo UK, they told me to send the console off to them, and basically I couldn't be bothered. Afterall, I could play games perfectly fine.

However, after a little bit of pressure seeing fellow mates using their Wii on the internet, I thought I would send it off to repair. Before I did, however, I had a quick check on the web to make sure that the address I recieved months ago was right.. I then stumbled across a post about others having the same issues, and it said to simply try and reformat the Wii, and that for almost all people that would fix the issue. So I backed up the games (that everyone else seems to play ;-) ) onto an SD memory card, and reformatted. I set up the WiFi access again, and low and behold it requested the update again. Performed the update and now its all happy!!

How annoying is that.. All this time I thought it was completely buggered, and it just wanted a fresh start in life. Well, I'm just happy I don't have to send the thing off.. I think thats a rubbish Nintendo UK policy. A fault with their system, they should send a post bag, or arrange a collection at least. Seems that Ninento US have a completely different policy of sending you a new Wii, and a bag to send the old one back. Now that doesn't sound very consistent customer service.
