    Today I´m playing Zombie U for one hour and the game/console freeze and horn for 10/15 seconds, before this I can eject CD but nothing more.
    I hold power on button and reboot the console.

    I read about horn of death and another problems. I bought the Wii U in December 2013, it is the second time of freeze in "ZombieU".
    I play "Wii Party U", "YourShape: Fitness Evolved 2013" and never freeze. In vWii I play a lot of games and never freeze too.

    Anyone has a similar problem? Is it a hardware problem? So bad... :blink:

    The first freeze it is system version 4.0.2 and now the second freeze is system version 4.0.3.

    Maybe it was internet related ? Maybe you can do this: If you have the resolution settings to 1080p.. Try to change it to 720p to see whats the difference. Credit goes to Pedro from other forum that I found.

    If it works for you then click "like". Hope it helps. :D

    bearmon2010 I will try this... And I will give feedback here
    All people said it is internet related/Miiverse problem.
    I read comments of a lot of people with the same problem or similar... And some sent console to Nintendo and receive a new console, but the problem appear again.

    I think it is a software problem.. Do you have the problem anytime?

    I do not have this problem, but I read that if it happened once it'll happened again (like PS3 YLOD).

    Omg... It is in the first months of warranty but I have HBC in the vWii (can´t send this to Nintendo, they will send me back).

    When buying the console in December 2013 never thought there were still console packs in the market with this problem.. so bad.

    My Wii U actually froze on me quite a bit one day. What ended up solving the sudden freeze/noise was unplugging the Wii U for >30 seconds and using a different electrical outlet. Turns out the power strip I was using had certain outlets that were buggy and unstable, it makes my Wii U freeze after about 5 min and just shut off for my Wii and Laptop. Even small instabilities in outlets can cause weird issues. Hope this helps.
