The Wii only ever goes red when you turn the console off completely, it goes from yellow (standby mode) to red, which is power off. There is definitely a fault with your system, and isn't repairable, your best bet is to find your receipt if you still have it and exchange it, or if you don't have it you can ship it back to Nintendo for them to fix.

My guess is that there's something wrong with your power pack, you can find those on ebay.

SOURCE: not even a red light on Wii

Try a different power outlet and if that doesn't work reseat the ac adaptor into the Wii.

If that still doesn't work, try another known working ac adaptor and if the Wii still doesn't turn on then that means that the Wii has a bad main board and you'll need to replace the Wii or have it sent in for service if its still under warranty.

Wii has solid red light, won't turn on, faint ticking noise


if it was dropped check the bluetooth module , they can come unplugged and the wii will not function. Children love to put change in the wii which can short it out. Never bridge a fuse as it can cause unsafe conditions and potentially a fire hazard .

After not using my wii for about a month i went to play it the other day and it wouldn't turn on. The indicator light on the power button is off, not green, red, or orange. All the cords are connected, I...


Unplug it from the wall outlet (NOT from the Wii). Leave it unplugged for a good 5 to 10 minutes. The AC adapter needs to be reset (more on that below).

Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surprised Nintnedo didn't cover this in the owners manual FAQ, considering 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.

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.

Does not power up


There is no light on the front, correct? No red light, no yellow, no green?

Power outage this am. Wii won't even turn on


Usually, after a power outage, a power spike (when the power returns) can disable/blow the fuse in the AC adapter for the Wii.

Try the following steps in this order:

FIRST:
- unplug the Wii's power cord from the wall, and leave it unplugged (from 5 mins. to 5 hours). Then, plug it back into the wall. (Unplugging the power cord from the back of the Wii will not help. You need to unplug the power cord from the wall.)
- This usually helps reset the fuse circuit in the AC adapter, and your Wii should work again.

SECOND:
- open the panel on the AC adapter box in the power cord; since the screws are proprietary, you will need to creatively use existing tools to turn the screws
- check the 3A fuse in that box; if it looks blown, then replace it

THIRD:
- it might be cheaper to replace the AC adapter with another one

FOURTH:
- get the unit repaired

MUST DO:
- buy a SURGE PROTECTOR power bar, and plug all of your expensive items into it (to prevent this from happening again).

Hope that helps!

Wii will not turn on... no red light


Sounds like the unit may have experienced over voltage, there is a fuse on the board however I would take the easy route and test a new power brick to see if this solves the issue. Thank you
