Question about Nintendo Wii Console
I just put Wii Fit in the console, and a second or two later, we had a power outage at home (not from lightening)... power to the house came back on a minute later, but my Wii will not power up. Other appliances (TV, DVR) in same plug are working fine. I unplugged the Wii power cord for a couple of minutes, plugged it back in, but still have no power on the Wii. I can't even eject the Wii Fit disc. have you ever experienced this? Please help!
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.

Just and addendum to sakkyoku's post "Solution #1"--
I had the exact same problem:
-Brief power outage
-All devices plugged into same outlet functioning properly
-No red standby light on the Wii Console
Instead of just unplugging the power source to the Wii, I had to unplug EVERYTHING (SD cards, sensor bar, A/V cable) from the Wii and let it set for several minutes.
When you plug it back in, ONLY plug in the power source and hopefully (as it did in my case) your Wii console will shine a beautiful red light of relief.

We had a power surge from lightening and the same thing happened. Wii stopped working and would not eject our disk. I was in the process of packing it all up to send out for repair when we thought about the disk. I checked power to the power adapter and it was fine (12V). I couldn't find a manual eject switch to get our "Carnival" disk out. I did what was suggested (unplugging it everything and waiting 10 minutes or so and it worked fine after plugging it back in. Thanks so very much.
