The problem started when a power outage occured & the unit just turned off. A red light is on the unit but when you press power it just click but doesnt come on. I assumed it was on eco mode so I followed those steps & it didnt work, I also tried resetting it & nothing. Lastly I open the reciever to check if the fuse has gone out & it wasnt. Could you guys help I just gave up already??? Thanks!
I just had the same thing happen with mine. First i blew out the 7 years of collected dust. No change. Checked the fuse. Good. Scrached head. Check.
Out of curiosity i pulled the fuse out, and put a small bolt in its place. Powers on right away now. I dont have to sit and play with it for 10-15 min anymore. So, a new fuse should fix it. I will find out tomorrow.

These blinks are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Your unit has some sort
of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply
Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will
occur. The sound is it starting up, shutting down, over and over. You need to take the unit to a reputable service
centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.
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:
- 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.
- 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
- it might be cheaper to replace the AC adapter with another one
- get the unit repaired
- buy a SURGE PROTECTOR power bar, and plug all of your expensive items into it (to prevent this from happening again).
HI, the fly back transformer has failed in your unit. this will occur if the dust level is high inside the set. the dust will settle on the cooper windings and, create an arch that will short out the entire power sector of this unit.
The fly back is usually the first to take the hit. replacing this will fix this issue.
