Nintendo Wii repair Service
RIng of Death on Wii
On the very first version of Nintendo Wii released there was a design flaw. When connected to the Internet the CPU was functioning but the cooling fan at the back of the console was not. This caused the unit to overheat and damage the main board. On later versions of the console this fault was cured and the fan turned on whenever connected to the Internet.
Other than this fault, the Wii itself is well designed and does not usually overheat. The Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 both run at a higher temperature and are more prone to main board failures.

On certain consoles the game region restriction is also defeated. This allows you to play legally purchased foreign games from different regions.

Buying backup games is not illegal, it is illegal to sell them, so - we do not sell copy games
