    when I try to turn on the Wii, the blue light of the slot turns on for no more than a second and then the Wii goes off again.

    I have checked power connections and they are ok, I have disconnected the power cable for 2 hours or more and nothing happens, power light is red when I press the button to turn the Wii on, blue light of the slot turns on for a moment and then the Wii turns off. The power button does not light in red or green.

    Yeah ive got the same problem and we dont even play the thing that often. wtf.

    Power will not come on suddenly. Connection was secured and tested. I guess the power supply or some thing inside the console has broken. Where do I get replacement?

    We hooked it up Christmas Eve (we did our x-mas early) and this morning it just won't turn on. I am past frustrated. My kids are very upset, and if we have to wait to ship it back and wait for another one then the rest of our Christmas vacation is RUINED!

SOURCE: Wii worked fine yesterday. Will not power up

This is a common problem with the Wii. Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii. It happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.

You need to reset the AC adapter to get the Wii to work again. There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

Our wii is about 6 years old. It was working fine yesterday, today it doesnt even act likes it's getting power. No lights come on. Reset doesn't work, switched outlets...nothing happening.


Wii console's are known to over-heat. Try letting it cool down for a day with no power cables plugged in. Try and turn it on the next day, and if it doesn't work, my best guess is that it over-heated to the point of giving up. And when you plug it back in, blow in all the ports and cables just to be safe. If none of this works, it is either broken or needs more expertise than I can give.

My wii will not work the wires are plugged in but the light is not on it was working fine yesterday but it wont work now please help


Try your wii power supply in your friends' house. If your power supply didn't work on your friends wii, Buy new power supply. If it worked on your friend's wii then your wii is dead. Call Nintendo to take care of it. If you dont have a warranty, do it yourself. Take out the motherboard and google Wii FUSE. Chage the fuse. If you don't have the fuse, use soldering iron and join the palce you place the fuse together. If that didn't work again, Replace the wii motherboard. Trust me your wii will work this time and your MII you created will still be there because they are all on your harddrive not wii motherboard.

Rate if this helped you.

Wii console not working correctly


When you connect to the internet wirelessly and Wii Connect24 your Wii will stay connected and recieve messages, updates, etc. That is why the disk area stays blue and the amber light stays on. Sometimes this will create a power failure. Just unplug your Wii from the wall and let it rest for a few minutes and plug it back in. The problem should be solved.
