We had a power outage and no longer have power to our Wii game. We unplugged everything, waited and plugged everything back in. Still doesn't work. I know this work from some people, but, unfortunately...


This is most likely not an issue with the Wii. Try using it in a different outlet and a different TV. Most likely your circuit breaker needs a fuse to be reset. Check it out and see if there are any switches the do not face the same direction as the rest.

Wii won't turn on after a power outage.


Hey, recently had a power outage and now your Wii won't turn on?

Well unless your Wii is completely fried from the storm then this should work (It has for me every time I have had an outage).

After you find out it's not getting power then just unplug the power cable from the wall and from the Wii. Normally I unplug it for about 12-24 hours then you go plug it back into the wall, plug it back into the Wii, look at the power button and if it is red/orange then it has been fixed and you should never have a problem with it again unless you keep it plugged in during a thunderstorm/power outage!


This has happened to me about 8 times and this method worked every single time!

My Wii console will not turn on. It's has power to it as the TV works fine. is there an internal fuse or master reset switch inside that can be replaced? I've tried plugging into another outlet also with...


No Master reset. There is a reset button on the wii but his only works if your wii turn on.
But there is a fuse and I think the fuse is the problem if you think your power supply is good

Buy a tri-crew drive ship on ebay $2
fix it by your self because you have no warranty (it is 6 years old)
open it up then replace the fuse
here is where the fuse should be http://i47.tinypic.com/2lbko7b.png

This will also help to open up the wii http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repair/Repairing-Nintendo-Wii-Drive-Board-Fuses/4029/1

Make sure to order the fuse with the screw driver too. It should cost you less than $10
If you don't want to replace the fuse, just use wire and solder the two solder pads for the fuse but this method is bad.

Please rate if this helped you.

Had a power outage and when the power came back on Wii would not


my guess is the voltage got too great and blew out the power. therefore your wii got a jolt of electricity so high it blew a fuse

Power outage this am. Wii won't even turn on


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:

FIRST:
- 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.

SECOND:
- 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

THIRD:
- it might be cheaper to replace the AC adapter with another one

FOURTH:
- get the unit repaired

MUST DO:
- buy a SURGE PROTECTOR power bar, and plug all of your expensive items into it (to prevent this from happening again).

Hope that helps!

The electricity went off this morning...Now the Wii console power won't turn on....


Confirm the wii is plugged in (wall and wii side); if the wii is plugged into a power strip, confirm the power strip is plugged in, and that any on/off or fuse switch on the strip is set to on (may have been tripped during power surge/outage); unplug the wii for 15 minutes (seriously, 15 minutes), then plug it back in and try again.

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.
