  • Anonymous Dec 29, 2008

    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?

    my wii has a problem. my brother tried to put a memory card from his camera in, and i guess it wasnt the right kind, and all f a sudden, my wii shut down. Now, i take out all the plugs, and put them back, and then try to turn it on, it comes on momentarily... then shuts off again! HELP ME!

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 do i do whe every game works exept or my brand new backyard football '10. when i put it in it says ' an error has occurred. press the eject button and remove the disc then turn the wii co


Do you have a copy of SMASH BROS BRAWL? If so, try it and see if it works.

Usually if every game is working EXCEPT one, it's a problem with the game. However, on the Wii, most games are single layer. Smash Bros Brawl is one game I know for sure is double layer. Some Wiis have problems playing double layer discs.

If everything is working OK including Smash Bros Brawl, I would return the disc and get an exchange for another one. You may have gotten a defective disc.

I bought super smash bros brawl before and it worked fine then after awhile it stoped working keeps saying it cant read the disk anymore


Hello,

New game or used game?


1.) New Game - its your system. Super Smash Bros is a dual layer game and it takes a strong laser to be able to read the game. You would need to get your laser replaced.

2.) Used game - possibly worn out. Check the back for scratches.

Adding second player in adventure mode


Try pressing Start on the map screen. This way the game knows that P2 needs to select a character, as well.

My wii wont load any games


We had similar problems after buying Super Smash Bros Brawl. I noticed that the Wii could read which disc was in the system but could not load it in order to play. This seemed like a shortage of memory to me (but the error message does not indicate a memory issue). I bought a 1 gig sd memory card for the Wii and now it works perfectly. BTW the kid at the Best Buy store did not think this would work, but it did. Good Luck.
