How to fix Wii U invalid disc
Nintendo Wii U Error Code 150-1031 and 150-2031
I need your help with Nintendo Wii U Error Code 150-1031 and 150-2031. In both cases, Nintendo support says they are caused when playing the discs. I know what was going on when it happened, just not what do to when I get these errors. The first thing to do is to make sure you didn't put a Blu-Ray or DVD disc in the Wii U console. I know it can't take media discs like CDs and DVDs. It also can't take discs for other types of consoles, so if someone put an Xbox One disc in your Wii U, you'd see this error. It is a Wii U disc. Did you buy the Wii U disc online? If you bought a cheap one from China with the Chinese region encoded in it, it may not play on your US system. With some games and streaming content, it isn't allowed to be played in specific areas. At least I could test this by swapping out the Wii U discs and seeing if the error goes away. I've heard of problems with Sony's PlayStation region information tied to someone's account getting messed up. However, Nintendo Wii U region information is usually based on the disc, and that's identified by where you bought it. I know if you buy stuff from Club Nintendo of America, it has US encoding on it, even if you get stationed overseas. And the Club of Nintendo of America products are only available to those in the US or Canada, though if you're in the EU, you can buy from the Club Nintendo of Europe. That's a new reason to only buy from the official Nintendo store. I don't know if there are other limitations built into the regionally sold hardware, but the best bet is to buy a console where you live and buy games from the same region. Both the console and the games came from a store downtown. Then you didn't possibly mess up the console using Freeloader or another boot disc to try to bypass region locking, and locked up the console instead. Hacking a device tends to create problems only hackers can handle. Then there's the more mundane reason for error codes 150-1031 and 150-2031 is because you're trying to play discs without being in Wii Mode. I know you can only play Wii U discs in Wii mode. And when you start a Wii game, it should automatically start the Wii menu. There's also the fact that you may need to exit the Wii menu before putting in a new Wii game, or else you could get an error message. I know that if the Wii mode doesn't come up, you can scroll to the Wii U Menu and select the Wii U icon. Then push A. Or use the Wii remote to pick the Wii Menu and then hit A. What if the remote or controller isn't working? Then you have to sync the Wii Remote by connecting the sensor bar, hitting the sync button on the Wii U console or pairing controllers from the home menu - Then what? After you've got the types of controllers on the screen, pick the controller you want to sync and then hit the sync button on the remote. I know the LED on the controller should light up at that point. And if the controller doesn't sync with the game, that could explain why waving it around doesn't do anything except get you exercise.
