Will Suddenly Shuts Off during Play
« on: June 06, 2018, 09:26:30 PM »
I won a Wii system today from off Ebay and it was cheap because it has a problem. Can anyone tell me what would cause a Wii to suddenly shut off after I play for about an hour. If I wait a while it will start but do the same thing all over again. Anyone know what could cause this?

Could be your power supply going bad.

From what you've said, I would check your fan is running at a good clip. Because it sounds like your CPU is overheating. I would suggest taking it apart, cleaning the whole system of dust thoroughly, adding some new paste to the heat sink and then adding a secondary auxiliary cooling fan.  If all that fails, you'll have to get another motherboard because your CPU is probably fried.
