Very simple - to hard reset a Wii you disconnect it from power and leave it for between 5-10 minutes before reconnecting.  There is no hard reset key combination (unlike holding in the reset button for a couple of seconds to soft reset).

When you say "Disconnect it from power" Do you mean to remove the battery on the mainboard inside the wii ?

If i take off the power 5 - 10 min it stills keeping the settings!

Yes mains and then battery (unscrew the cover next to the serial no. on the base).  This will rest all the settings back to the Wii CMOS defaults..

Ok ! I will try this - hopefully it works. I have seen other forums where they say, that taking off the battery inside the wii dosent work.

I will give feedback en some days

No problem - remember this will only reset settings that are in volatile RAM.  Some settings you can only remove with formatting.

And how do you format ?

Is it done by sending the wii to nintendo ?

If you have shop channels you'll need to deleter those first  - instructions are in the link above.

This will remove all settings though which is not what you originally asked.
