Power button works when it wants to


I purchased a Wii on ebay and now before shipment this guy is telling me that his kid knocked the unit off the couch and the power button is finicky and you have to play with it before it actually will power on the unit..

Anyone know if this is an easy fix if I take it appart? Or should I tell him forget about it and ask for a refund..?

The problem could or could not be the power button, so in a case like this I would notify ebay of the situation and demand a refund. Why should you pay for something that is broken. You never know what is exactly wrong with something until you can visually open it up and look and examine the circuits with a multimeter, but by then it will be to late and you could be stuck with it.


If you do not mind, please rate my help. I would really appreciate it. thanks

Below is the ad from which I purchased hockey


If you paid through eBay with PayPal, follow the "Help", and start an eBay "Dispute Resolution" process, and follow-up with PayPal -- PayPal can "reverse" the payment that you made.

Did the seller give you a US Postal Service "tracking-number"? Have you "tracked" the shipment?

Nintendo wii dance mat was unwrapped for xmas, can't work it


If your Wii console is facing you standing vertically with the power button at the top, look for two doors that open on the top facing the ceiling. Open the compartment at the front an you'll find four ports that will fit the plug for the dance mat. We plugged ours into the closest port to the front of the unit and it's working fine.

well I have 3 kids and let me tell you this I had this happen a few times to me and guess what it was? the kids put the disk into the unit the wrong way.

Yamaha RX V490 Turning itself Off


The amp is in protect mode which means that the output section has a problem. With nothing connected, there are defective parts inside the unit. This type of problem is not likely to have been caused by any shipping damage. I would guess that the output transistors are shorted.

Sharp aquos lc26sh12u no menu screen appears


as you have a good screen, I would check ebay for the display controllers as there are so many available after shipment drops and kids with hard toys.
what you have been troubleshooting so far is analog , now its likely a digital issue , all you can look for is the the cpu is running,
is it getting the 5v + and the say 20 or so volts.
