Refurb DS Lite or DSi?
So I just upgraded my phone and got a 50 gift certificate from Best Buy. I want some kind of mindless entertainment, so I decided why not purchase a DS? I am now looking to buy a refurb DS Lite from Game Stop and use the $50 towards a game or get the newer DSi at Best Buy with the certificate. Which should I choose?

Anyone having hardware issues with their 3DS system?
Just sent my Cosmo Black unit back to Nintendo for a free repair. Apparently Street Fighter on this portable may have been little too much for it physically, because while playing I heard something pop while trying to perform the Shoryuken motion. The Analog stick pretty much froze in position after that. I managed to free the stick but afterwards it felt like it couldn't in 1/4 cardinal directions which would vary from moment to moment. I should add that it was a few days after the 30 day... Read more →

My Wii will not power on. There are no lights that turn on. I've unplugged everything from the console and left it unplugged.
I plugged just the power adapter back in (checking to make sure it was in securely and such). I plugged it into the surge protector. Still nothing. I tried another outlet in another room that I know works, still nothing. So I left it all unplugged for several days and tried again. Still no power at all. Should I see if I get it repaired or purchase a new power adapter?

Why do we need to blow on the games and why do the games mess up?!?
This weekend my brother in law came to my house and we broke out the NES to play some Double Dribble. The game (as many of the older games) is awesome and never gets old! When I first put it in the system and fired it up, I got the blinking light :/ took it out and preformed the usual hot air blowing procedure. About 4 years ago my wife surprised me and bout me a NES for xmas. I was so excited. I went and bought a brand new 72 pin connector. I figured a new connector would fix the problem, but...

I absolutely can't take it any more
The DSi battery life is so bad, I average about 4 hours with low brightness and wireless turned off. I can't imagine trying to use this thing in a serious situation..., like a 28 hour road trip or something. How could Nintendo release a mobile product that can't even stay alive long enough to matter? My iPhone has better battery life than this..., which is PATHETIC.

Overheating and shutting down
Often when I'm playing Wii, the console will shut itself off without any notice. When I feel the Wii it is pretty hot, so I think it may be an overheating issue. Has anyone else had this issue? If so is there a way to go through Nintendo for repairs for this problem?

Wii Speed Slower?
I've run the custom Wii speed test from and it always shows around 2Mbps down and .30Mbps up. I currently have a 20Mbps down/2Mbps up Charter cable connection. It shows 20/2 most of the time on my PC and around 17/2 on my PS3. What's up with the Wii. I've did several Google searches on the subject. Is it an Opera browser limitation, Wii internet hardware thing or what? I have my Wii connected via USB/LAN to a Netgear WNDR3700 gigabit router and Motorola SB6120 cable... Read more →

Sensor Bar Problems
My sensor bar has recently stopped working as it should. I have to point far to the right to get it to register the pointer on the screen. Even when it does register, the point skips around. I have tried this with multiple controllers and am fairly sure that it is the sensor bar. Has anyone else had this problem?

Getting Online
My DS can't detect my Wi-Fi network, even when I stand right next to my router while holding the system. Other devices in my house have no problem connecting wirelessly. Does anyone know something I can try?

Extreme Optical Drive noise
Does anyone have extreme noise coming from their wii's optical drive/ mine has been doing it for about a year now and everyone in my family is so sick of it we can't even play it for more than an hour or so. I know its the optical drive and not the fan because it only makes the noise when I use another channel and the drive is turned off, it doesn't make the noise. Any solutions?
