Surely you will remember the alarming report that reached us a few days ago for fans of Nintendo. It was a bug present in Wii U.
Specifically, the problem was that the Wii U consoles are gradually corrupted. We remind you of the details of the error:
The report states that “not using the console for long periods can cause it to become completely corrupted.” This could be due to persistent errors in the memory system, specifically an error numbered as 160-0103 that appears on the Wii U Gamepad. They claim that this error is “a death sentence for the console”, as it is a problem of NAND corruption, which means that the Wii U is locked “unless you have saved a backup via softmod.” There’s no use trying to factory reset the console, only a NAND backup is useful. “My Wii U has been unused for over 5 years. I decided to remove it the other day, but when starting, a black screen appears with an error code 160-0103, which suggests an error in the system memory, “comment some users in the thread. For now, Nintendo has not ruled on the respect, but it seems that this error dictates a death sentence to the console for not using it for long periods of time.
Well, now updated information has been shared. It seems the problem may or may not occur depending on the NAND chip your console has. These chips were created by Hynix, Samsung or Toshiba. Of these three, it seems that Hynix’s is the one that fails because it “runs out” much faster than the other two.
You can only know what type of chip we have by opening our Wii U, so it is not easy to find out. We will be watching in case more details are shared.
