Topic: My Wii U makes cracking noises

Posts 1 to 6 of 6


Is it normal that the Wii U makes little cracking sounds when you're using it? Everything works fine with my console, but I often hear it while I'm playing, and I was wondering what it is. It's like the sound a TV makes when it's off but much lower .



It's normal, so don't worry.

I think you're talking about the disc being read. That's just how it sounds when the console reads files from a disc, so no worries!

Waiting for ShadowforSSB4 to take me up to the heavens.

Yeah I noticed this as well. It happened for the first 4 or 5 months but eventually stopped. I never worried or anything though...My original Xbox 360 from 2005 did it every 2-3 minutes.

Maybe you should move it off the fireplace.

I make Pixel Art on occasion, and sometimes sell them as Game Assets.

Mine does it too, must be normal, don't worry.

I'm a PC player but I'll always have a spot for Nintendo. I grew up as a child as a hardcore Nintendo fanboy and I still love their games. The Legend of Zelda still gives me the magic feeling I had when I was a kid. :)
