WiiFit???? WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

27 Jul

Ok. It broke.

That’s right. Our WiiFit is kaput.

It happened over a week ago.

Nintendo did provide stellar advice and service over the phone (from what I heard on this end…I had hubby make the call as I was busy with other things)….

They emailed us a fedex gound label and we sent the WiiFit balance board back, along with a busted (for no apparent reason) “Endless Ocean” disk (kiddo loves Endless Ocean and the disk read error was making him and through mere proximity, us, nutty)…

Hubby took the package to FedEx and now we wait…

So what happened?  Well, it was gradual, over around a dozen uses…I noticed that when doing the step program my right foot steps would very occasionally just not register…So occasionally that I just switched batteries and promptly forgot about it… But then I got into the advance rhythmic boxing and the right foot thing started happening more frequently… At some point I popped in the brand new rechargeable WiiFit battery pack which was advertised as a bundle offer on Amazon.com… No difference.  Finally it stopped registering on the right side at all… Baldguy ran the diagnostics and sure enough, the right front/upper side was not registering…

Anyway. So now we wait… I miss our WiiFit so much!  I was using it at least every other day and feeling the benefits (unfortunately this breakdown happened, in full, on the day I was coming back to my workouts from my week where I could barely move because of my spine issues)…

One thing the Nintendo rep did say on the phone- apparently Nintendo is not aware of any official, licensed battery packs for the WiiFit and even though the manufacurer of our pack does manufacture other licensed Nintendo Wii products the battery is not one of them and will void the warranty… They are apparently letting us sneak by at this time as the issue is not power related, but YMMV…

I’ll keep you updated… Off to investigate peculiar noise that is disturbing boy…

Later gators,

Ahhh sunny Florida and vintage souvenirs….

Sometimes, though, there is a little too much detail on pieces… This particular intaglio pictures some palms, the beach, a flamingo, and what I’m guessing is a lady sunning her legs while the rest of her is under the cover of an umbrella…

But, due to the monochromatic and general tiny-ness of the piece is looks like a giant clam eating a person.

Now that would have been a classic drive-in bit…

With Love,

Funny Oops.

I was going through the Citibank “Thank You Network” looking at the vairous awards (yay for insomnia) and found this…

Movie Musical DVD 3-Pack:

Get a monster slamming jam, penetrate the lane and shoot from the perimeter using the WiiTM console. Intricate moves are easily learned with a few wand movements on both offense and defense. Multi-player mode can pit beginners against advanced and still level the competition.
Item # : 1112891

Sounds rather brutal for what I’d be expecting in a 3 pack of classic musicals….

Etsy and BUST!
