I have checked all three inputs into the wii unit; the power cord, the sensor bar cord, and the rca cords (all three) and I still can't get the wii to come on. The wii power cord shares the same plug as...


The sensor bar cable and the RCA cable can be ignored for this problem. In fact, just disconnect them and go with just the power cable. If you are getting power to your Wii, it will display a green power light on the front when you power it on without the sensor bar or the RCA cable plugged in. (It should also display an orange light when it is off, if it is getting power from the outlet.) Take the Wii into another room with working outlets and plug it in. Attempt to power it on with the power button on the Wii, and with a working Wii remote. If neither will power the Wii on, try borrowing a Wii power cable from a friend, or purchase a replacement. If the new power cable does not fix the problem, see if the Wii is still under warranty and send it in for repair.

No power to wii console


Try a friends power cord on your wii. If it works fine, buy a new power cord for your wii. If it doesn't work still with your friends cord, it's the connector on your wii and it will need replacing. Also make sure to try a different outlet in your home as well; the outlet itself could be fried.

My Wii doesn't come on


Hi there, you could try the following:
  1. Try unplugging Wii from the power for a full 2 minutes, plug back in and power up and test (This resets the Power Adapter).
  2. If this does not resolve it then it may need to be repaired so contact Nintendo here.
Please see here for for information on Power issues with the Wii.
Cheers

Consider the following...
  • plug a lamp or another device that requires electricity into the spot the wii power cord is.
  • take the power cord out the wii, locate another wii power cord and try that one or vice versa

Wii not powering off


You have to hold the power button down on the Wii console for many seconds before it will power off completely. Try it for more than 5 seconds.

Power Outage & Now Wii Won't Power Up...


When this same thing happened to me, I unplugged the Wii power supply from the wall (not just from the back of the Wii) and let it sit unplugged for about 10 minutes. When I plugged it back in, everything was fine.

Wii completely stops working after power outage


I just had the same problem as everyone else. I had a brief power loss and our new Wii system's power would no longer work. To fix the problem, I unplugged everything from our Wii and unplugged the power cord from the outlet. I let the system set for 10 minutes and re-plugged the power only. That did the trick. Then I was able to plug everything back up and we are now back to playing.

Supposedly, doing the steps above resets the Wii according to the Nintendo online trouble shooting guide.
