Try unplugging it from the wall and the console for 20 minutes. Then try it. It works!

My wii won't turn on


Wii Console Won't Turn On, and Has No Power Light Situation:
  • The Wii console won't power on, and the Power LED is unlit
  • The console powers on, but shuts off after a few seconds/minutes
  • Attaching an accessory to the console turns the power off

Information:
This issue can be caused by an accessory or power surge tripping the circuit breaker on the AC Adapter.

What To Do:
  • Check any accessories attached directly to the console to make sure that it is licensed and undamaged. Unlicensed or damaged accessories shouldn't be used with the console.

  • Try using a different wall outlet, or plug a different device into the outlet to make sure the outlet is providing power.

  • Perform an AC Adapter Reset. (How To)

My wii was working a few days ago then I tried to turn it on today and it will not come on. I tried plugging it in to different outlets but it still will not come on. No lights will come on either.


hello,
One of two common possible problems. Either 1) Your AC adapter needs to be reset or 2) Your AC Adapter is bad.

Most power issues with the Wii can be fixed by resetting the AC adapter. You can easily reset the AC adapter by following these steps:
Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).

The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.

After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked.


Try to find someone with a Wii.. not that hard everyone has one. See if they will let you use the power cord.
test the cord and if that doesn't you know its inside the Wii.
Then, their are fuses inside the console one of them my have blown.You need a special screw driver.
Hope this will help..

The Wii console will not turn on. What could be the problem? I have tried plugging into diff outlets and nothing.


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 surpised Nintnedo didn't cover this in theowners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is apower surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked upto asurge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appearsdead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If therewas a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter2_bing.gif,not the Wii itself.

There is no need to buy a new one or a AC adapter. Resetting it should work. There is a circuit inside the AC adapterthat needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surgeprotector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at theoutlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it fromthe wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuittime to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

The Wii console is not powering up at all.


Hi there, this is a power board failure. It seems to be a manufacturing error considering the fact that, this Wii is only 2 months old. i would excercise the warranty if possible and return for exchange. this is a defective unit.
