For first gen hardware issues.
"OMG, I was so happy with my Wii, then the weirdest thing happened.
It stopped detecting the up movement, not like the move up, but like the way u need to hold it up in bowling and baseball. So weird, everything else works, all buttons, navigating through the menus... everything but when I hold it like it needs to be held in baseball and bowling!
WTF WTF WTF
If its broken, what should I do?
PS. I have taken out the batteries, restarted the system, everything
Another thing... I have another wiimote, and its working fine"
"My wiimote just sporatically goes in and out, and the finger is facing the wrong way, and moving it left doesn't make it go left, and there's a bunch of problems!! AAHHH!!! I didn't feel like buying another one, but hopefully Nintendo will replace it, though in the mean time I'll buy one to make sure that's the problem. Anyone else having this problem?"
"I cant even update mine, it says it connects fine and then all of a sudden when the update starts i get error code #32004 and tells me to visit support.nintendo.com to find out what the support code means but guess what? support.nintendo.com comes up with a 404 error."
"So last night I, like many others here, spent my night freezing my buns off for over 12 hours being the 2nd in line for the Wii at Target. Finally after much time standing in line, with a crackhead behind me who would not shut up, we get our tickets. I come back, eagerly grab my Wii and head out th door. When I finally arrive home I plug in my new system to my television. When I power up the system I see a message that says "Please insert the Wii start up disk. This will set up your Wii console." So I look for a "start up disk" and could not find any. After searching the box, and the internet, with no mention of one anywhere, I decide to call Nintendo of America. When I finally get through a half hour later, I explained the situation and the rep had to take down my info, where her computer froze and she mentioned a comment about Windows XP. Anyways when it was all set and done, she looked up the problem. She told me I would have to be sent a new Wii and then send back the console in the box. However it would take 3-5 business days to ship from tomorrow (Monday), and scince Thursday is Thanksgiving, UPS is closed so I might have to consider another week or so after that. "
A salute to those brave souls who buy first generation hardware, and sacrifice for those who come after.
