I've had my Wii since launch day and it always worked great. Absolutely NO problems beforehand, but about a week ago after downloading an update my Wii has froze on the startup. Normally at the bottom of the screen it would say "Press A to continue" but that option is not available and it's frozen. I've tried absolutely everything, and others have told me that this is from an error that occurs when downloading an update. I want to know any possible known fixes, or if Nintendo would charge me for repairs in this. I'm guessing they will even though it's their fault. Thanks in advance for your time.
Your Wii is bricked, yes. The latest update can brick your Wii.
Alright thank you for the fast answer:]
Do you reckon Nintendo will charge then?
Well because it's beyond warranty, I'd wager it'll be around 75$ to fix. They may need to replace your Wii completely, actually. Give Nintendo a call ASAP.
You can "Barter" with CS to reduce the price.
Call Nintendo ASAP! Tell them that you updated your Wii and when you turned it on after you updated, it wouldn't go past the first heath and safety screen. They should not charge you 85 dollars. Infact, you should get it repaired for free because it is technicly Nintendo's fault for having a poor system updater.
