I was playing Mario kart (via loadiine) this morning , when the Wiiu just turned off by itself , its not in a closed box , I made sure it's in a state when it cannot overheat , should i be worried ? i mean i literally bought it a week go , no warranthy :rofl2:
maybe i shouldn't be asking here , but i figured maybe it was shutoff because i was runing a homebrew ? dunno.

Could you be more specific? Did the system just turn off as you playing it or by it self cause of auto shutoff?
Was there a red light flashing the power led?

I was being specific tho , it shut off while i was playing it , i don't think the red light was flashing .. I suppose maybe because i'm using a step down transformer ?

I am not sure, but if the system turned off during play, I had a similar problem with the led blinking. Think the system overheated. (INSERT XBOX RED RING OF DEATH JOKE HERE) So maybe the vents on the system is dusty. Try cleaning it. I did and it worked again. :)

I would blame your transformer before the Wii U. It's just more likely that there's some issue with your transformer, causing it to cut off intermittently.

I'm just being honest. Most systems that over heat now and days, auto shut down to prevent cricital damage to system. You wanna spend $250 on a second wii U With all your saves and dlc lost cause you can't redownload for free i don't think. :(
