    we had the same problem. the power went out when playing & when it came back on, the wii won't turn on. the cd is still inside.
    what if the fuse is blown? how do we know? or is it the ac cord?

I called the Wii 800 number, and it said to unplug the a/c adapter from the wall and the unit for 2 minutes, and this resets it, it fixed mine.

I've had this problem happen twice. My issue was due to not using the Wii for several weeks.

1. Unplug the power supply from both the Wii and the outlet/surge protecter.
2. Leave unplugged overnight.
3. Plug the power supply back in, starting at the wall outlet/suprge protecter, then to the Wii console.

This has worked for my twice and for several others that I know as well.

Solution #1 was the answer for my Wii. Make sure you DISCONNECT it from the WALL and the WII for 2 minutes.

I made the mistake of just disconnecting the power supply from the Wii and it didn't change anything. Post Solution

Solution number one worked great, Me and my Fiance were wanting to play Wii Sports, and we haven't played it in a couple of months, so when we tried to get it hooked to the television and such, no light was coming on, so we got on here and read solution number one, gave it a shot, and after a couple of minutes, Vualah! it worked with flying colors, thanks Juliebutts! :-)

It does sometimes work to disconnect power supply from outlet overnight. I think it is a built in safeguard when you lose power. Anyway, it worked.

What's happen to my ps 3? have error d5027


That error basically means your network connection to the PS3 network servers is unstable. Given the time of year and the number of kids that have snow days and are at home, and parents staying home working across the internet, the most likely cause is simple network congestion. You should notice this issue go away early morning when fewer people are online, and get worse as the day progresses. In some cases, you can set up a VPN or Virtual Private Network connection that can help. If you want to try that, go to this link http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home-Support/Using-Virtual-Private-Network-VPN-To-Defeat-Network-Error-D50027/td-p/44868077 for instructions on setting it up.

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.

It won't stay in place it stays in the side of the ring of the controller..is there a way to fix it at all


You have to open the controller up and look inside to make sure there's nothing broke first. Make sure you leave the controller upside down when doing this. Looks like one of the tumblers jumped track.
