    Warranty + bricked Wii = ?

    I'm interested to know how Nintendo is handling bricked Wii's. So say I would be unable to fix my bricked Wii and send it back to Nintendo, how will they handle this? Would they restore it regardless or would they not fix it, send it back and charge you research costs because they know you where stupid enough to brick it?

    I'm interested in this because I might want to give it a shot. I could probably get a new one at the store (because they give a 2-week warranty, and yes I'm that stupid to brick it within a week xD ) but just in case they will send it to Nintendo I would like to know this. ^^

    I've heard nintendo was charging 75 usd, and I also heard that they were charging pretty much the price of a new wii to fix bricks. Since you have the option I would play it dumb and take it back to the store. Usually they will swap you one out. It's not like they're loosing any money if you have your receipt and just want what you bought. I doubt nintendo would hound walmart or where ever you bought it from to track you down. Just return it and give it another go after doing more reading. Good luck. (post back what happens so others with this dilemma have an answer.) Hope this helps!

    i think you should explain what you have done to your wii first and see if wiihacks can help you fix it.
