    Ca Weird Error 004 Problem

    Hi everyone,
    I'm realy having weird problems with my Wii.

    I suddenly had a Error 004 mesage on my wii, withot previous warning.
    However, nobody did any modification on my wii. Hell, nobody even touched it except for me and my girlfriend, and I can assure you that we didn't modify anything, nor try to load a modding channel.

    So I called Nintendo, and they told me they have never heard of a 004 error that wasn't caused by modification.
    The are willing to look at it, after I send it in (at my cost, it's out of warranty), and if they discover that it's not a traditionnal 004 error, they are willing to repair it for 85 $. But with shipping, it's almost the same price as buying a new one (or waiting for the wii U and saving a few bucks on it).

    Since this wii has no vitual console game or wiiware game on it and that I am not guaranteed to get my shipping back (if they don't see that it's not a 004 error), I'm thinking not taking the risk of sending it, since they never repaired ANY 004 error Wii.

    But i'm trying one last thing. Since some of you maybe had error 004 problems for other reasons then I did, maybe you can hel me, since Nintendo won't. I saw some solution online if you already have modding things installed, but I don't have such things on my Wii.

    Hope some of you can help me.

    I won't, cause with only 4 messages since 2009, I don't trust you. Sorry.

    Sorry, didn't want to be rude.
    I just didn't want to share my email adress with someone that I don't know and that isn't a heavy poster

    Hope you can still help me while staying in this thread though.
    What would you say I can do ?

    well, did you buy system used or new? and if used possibly someone modded it and didn't unmod it before you and your gf received the wii. Also have you every used internet and or wifi via internet connection under wii, settings , internet? also i looked up the error code for you and this is what it said on nintendo Error Code: 004The error code you received indicates the system is attempting to load unauthorized software. Unauthorized modifications to save data or program files may impair game play on the Wii console and should be removed. which that's why i wanted to email you so I could explain better, i haven't help many people but 1 and hopefully you too. but i mean no harm sorry if i caught you off guard.

    Bought it brand new from the store
    Yeah, my Wii was connected online.

    I understand what error 004 is supposed to mean. However, I'm sure such modification never occured.
    So I hoped for a solution to my problem.

    what firmware are you and have you tried sadly formatting your wii? since i had installed netflix and i got an error message each time telling me it was installed and sometimes wii shop would kick me out of the download menu and restart and try again with the same issue. I formatted wii and yes it deleted my saves but it worked.
