During the concept stage of the Wii, Nintendo calculated the chances of overheating and adapted its design to minimize the risk. After long periods of use, your Wii can get quite warm, such temperatures though are considered to be within accepted levels.
Despite Nintendo’s best efforts, many users have reported overheating issues. The causes may vary, with the most frequent being:
- Defective Hardware
- Damage to the ventilation system
- Bad placement of the Wii (crammed spaces, insufficient ventilation)
- The cooling fan is not working, or is overloaded.
- Your Wii is unusually hot.
- Weird graphic artifacts such as lines, dots, or geometrics shapes appear on screen while playing your games.
- Your console abruptly shuts down after extended use.
