Many times when I turn off my Wii, the blue light surrounding the disc tray will light up and flicker. The Wii works fine, but its kind of annoying, and I was wondering if there is a problem. I'm just afraid that its the begining of something worse

It's not a problem, it's normal for it to do that. Do you mean when you turn it on though? Most of the time Wii's don't light up when they're turned off that I know of, but I doubt it's a big problem

If you find it annoying you can just turn it off via Wii options menu.

The blue light comes on when you insert or remove a disc and when you turn the power on. These moments it's on for only a second before going off again. It also flickers if you've received a message. It's perfectly normal.

My thoughts exactly! Sorry TC, but might I recommend reading the manual just a bit? :)

With the TC's question, I wonder people who ask these questions on this forum ever read the instruction manual. A poster who asks whether save information from GameCube games can be saved on the Wii's hard drive, also shows that he has not read the manual.

Wha!? Who here actually read the manual? I never read the manual for game consoles I thought they were pretty straightforward...

Haha Oh dear I dont read the manual either. I just tend to explore the console. Like first time I turned on my wii, I just went straight to the options to mess with them and figure out what I could change.
