    Unfortunately once part of the GPU has started to produce errors it will continue to do so. Preventing overheating will stop further damage but will not undo the damage already done.

    Just doing a reflow of the whole board may fix this issue. These issues can also come from bad ram.

    i had this with my 1st wii it's called the video board of death. eventually you'll have to send it into big n to get it replaced or get a new wii.

    My Wii has artifacts and stuff from WC24 overheating the Wii constantly, mine is LU34 so its a just after launch console. Mine has had it for years (~4). It has not gotten worse nor did i need to send it to Nintendo. It only happens while running Wii apps/Games/SM on mine, GC games are artifact free. Is it not common for a Wii with this problem to not get any worse to the point of getting it repaired?
