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.
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!
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
