    If it used to work fine and it's only doing this now then it's damaged (official ones can do this too) so getting a new remote would be the best option, official is really better, especially for a Wii as some 3rd party ones work fine if they're plugged in before the wii is turned on but have issues if plugged in afterwards.

    Edit: Sorry if I sound like a D*** I'm not in a good mood.

    U fucken smartass. Don't tell someone how to ask a question. He's tryin to figure out if his wii is broken. Next time either answer the question or just shut the fuck up. U fucken 14 yeAr olds think u r soo smart.

    Your controller is making a short circuit. Won't be easy to fix, so buy a new one.

    This.
    Still, I find it odd that they must have changed something hardware-wise on the Wii, since it's still working fine on the Gamecube. [​IMG]
    Yet again, it's a third party controller.

    It's no hardware change. I had a 3rd party controller that made a short circuit on my wii AND gamecube. But in your case I would say.. [​IMG] IDK

    To be honest, I had a NINTENDO gamecube controller that did the same thing, but the cord was damaged and you could see the wiring.

    It may have something to do with that.
