Cleaning the Wii - you have to pay attention to this

From time to time you will need to clean your Wii console. You can find out what you should pay attention to in this practical tip.

How to clean the Wii console

Before you start cleaning, unplug the Wii console from the electrical outlet. Then you can get started:

  • It is best to use a vacuum cleaner to clean the ventilation slots on the console. A compressed air spray can also help with stubborn dust.
  • It is best to use a multi-function oil to clean the outer shell of the console. Avoid using water, as moisture can cause short circuits.
  • If games are no longer recognized, the lens of your Wii drive may be dirty. Since the lens of the Wii console is unfortunately not freely accessible, it is best to have the console cleaned by a professional in this case. If you dare to open the console yourself, you can very carefully clean the lens with a cotton swab and a special lens cleaner.
  • If your controller no longer works properly, for example plugs or sockets are stuck, you can use a special contact spray for cleaning.
