    Hi there

    Bought a Wii from HK. Confirmed with the seller that the wii works on all games. Was told and can confirm it is from Korea Wii as all the insturctions books are in Korea Language.
    However, when i got back and start to go into the Mii Channel, it shows there is a problem to on the Mii Channel and Photo Channel.
    When i start it pops up with a message like “You can’t access this channel. Which means i bought a semi-bricked Wii. ;(

    I've check on a few forums and some of them suggest that there might be more multiple channel installed.
    Ex: Mii Channel Korean and US, Photo Channel Korean and US, News Channel Korean, US and Europe.
    I've followed the forum's suggestions and some says it works by using a technique to delete the duplicate channels such as below:

    1. Download channel file manager
    2. Extract
    3. Copy folder Channel File Manager to folder apps in SDCard
    4. Insert SDCard to wii, turn it on
    5. Go to HBC -> open Channel File Manager
    6. Press A
    7. Choose Wii NAND
    8. Choose System Channel Titles
    9. Choose which file you want to delete. See reference below.

    HAAx Photo Channel
    HABx Shopping Channel
    HACx Mii Channel
    HAFx Weather/Forecast Channel
    HAGx News Channel
    HAYx Photo Channel 1.1

    However I've check on my wii nothing seems to be duplicate and I dunno what to do.
    All I've seen in the system is as below:

    System Channel Titles:

    HABK - Shopping Channel
    HAYK - Photo Channel 1.1
    HAAA - Photo Channel
    HACK - Mii Channel

    Also I've found a few channels such as below, I'm not sure whether it is related or not.
    Hidden Channel:

    Install Channel Titles:

    Games that used channels:

    Can someone gurus here can assist me to solve the Mii channel.
    Many thanks for all reply and hope i can solve this problem.

    Can you tell us which System Menu Version are you running ?
    Click on the Wii icon and then Settings , you should be able to see the version at the right top corner.

    There is an American version of the photo channel 'HAAA' as well as the Korean photo channel 1.1 'HAYK' - could be an issue? Also If i delete the HAYK will it break the wii? I wanted it to be English wii console therefore the guy who sell me the wii installed it into an english version.

    HAXX is the homebrew channel so make sure you don't delete that.

    HABK - Shopping Channel
    HAYK - Photo Channel 1.1
    HAAA - Photo Channel
    HACK - Mii Channel

    This suggests that your channels are still korean channels (K), whilst your wii is american region (A) now.

    I suggest you delete all those channels and install the US versions using WADs or via a USA game disk.

    Then again, would you prefer to have European PAL wii? You might what to region change from US to UK.

    I'd also have a look at your region settings with anyregionchanger to check that there isn't any mismatches (don't change anything though!).
