Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii won't power on

My power went off for less than a minute not due to lighting or anything like that. Now the Wii will not power on there are no lights or anything. Yet all other appliances are working off the same surge protector. I tried plugging into another outlet by itself that I knew worked and still nothing. I also tried unplugging for 5 minuets and nothing. I see that there were a few other people with the same problem. Was unable to find the answer on this site. Can you please help or refer me to someone.
Thank You

    I have the exact same problem only mine is a little more weird. I was playing brawl, everyday like usual and today I was on wifi, camp taunting as red kirby XD, and it suddenly shuts off. No power problems, nothin, it just shuts off, no lights or nothing. I'll assume that it overheated, probably, since I stupidly have not been shutting it off. I always keep the thing on. So I'm sure that if I let it sit unplugged alone over night and try it again in the morning. If it still doesn't work by the next day after the day I see if it works then I'll just return in and have my SSBB CD removed from it since it's still inside.

    Haven't played our Wii for over a month (I know, a crime) went to play a new game on Christmas day and it won't power up. Tried different outlets, no luck. The unit had been plugged in to a power strip the entire time.

    MY wii wont turn on after my power went off for less than a minute and it was plugged into a surge protecter.

    Wii will not power up. Had a power loss for just a minute, now it will not turn on at all. All other appliances running off of same surge protector, and I tried plugging the console into another known good power outlet, still nothing. Is there an internal fuse or something?

Happened to me too. Wanted to get a replacement Wii, but then I thought it might be just the cable, so I lent my cable to a friend with a Wii to test, if it works. It did, so I was really on the verge of returning the Wii, but then I tried the cable once more and suddenly it worked. Dunno what the problem was, but it solved itself, leaving the Wii unconnected for some time (more than 5 minutes, though...)

Wii won't turn on.


Reset the AC adapter by following steps below.

1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the
Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).

2. After you've waited a full 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter back in on both ends and check to see if the power light comes on.

Can't turn wii back on


Did you unplug it from the Wii, or from the Wall Outlet? You need to unplug it from the wall outlet, not the Wii. If you haven't unplugged it from the wall outlet and left it unplugged for 5 to 10 minutes, then unplug it from the wall outlet and leave unplugged for a good 5 to 10 minutes.

This is a common problem with the Wii. Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector. 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, so power to the AC adapter needs to be cut off.

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 10 minutes. 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 5 or 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

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.

My 46-inch Samsung LCD TV screen went black. Audio works.


If you are seeing light then the back light is working. Can you get a menu?Do any of the other video inputs work? If no video but has backlight and no men or any on screen display replace main board.

Storm last night, now Wii won't power up


Unplug everything! There is a "breaker" in the power supply and it may need to be reset. Just unplug all cables from the TV and outlets. Let it sit for a couple hours then plug everything back in and it should work fine. If not then the power supply has shorted out due to a strong power surge. You can claim it under your home owners insurance or call Nintendo and try to get it replaced. Thanks! Good luck and happy gaming!!

Our Wii has no power no light no nothing


Okay, I had this problem also, it made me freak out, considering it was only 1 week old! what I did, and it worked, is
1. unplug every wire connected to the system (wires to/from wall, to sensor bar, and to/from TV)
2. unplug every other thing connected to it (i.e. memory cards, older controlers, etc...)
3. let it stand off in the dark for a couple of minutes (I reccomend 5 minutes or so)
4. plug the wires back in
5. turn it on
6. put anything else back in (i.e. the memory card)

If that doesn't work, or if this keeps happening, I reccomend bringing it back to the place you bought it (Walmart, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc)
, b/c they can give you a new one, or your money back. However, the warrenty could expire, or not even exist if you bought it online, or if you've had it too long.

I hope I helped you!

Wii / No Power


or you can remove all of the plugs from the console: AC, remote sensor, AV. This is important: You must also unplug the AC from the electrical outlet. Then wait 45 seconds, then plug the AC adapter back into the wall and your console. Power On.
