Question about Nintendo Wii Console

5 Answers

Wii light is on but the Wii won't function.

When I turn on my Wii the green power light turns on and the TV screen flickers as if the Wii has actually turned on but the screen remains black and nothing happens, and the Wii remotes don't respond. I've tried this on 2 TVs so the TV isn't the problem.

    I have the exact same problem. My Wii is brand new with only 4 hrs of playtime on it. During a game the screen froze and made a loud "errrrrrrrr" type sound. Ever since I have had the same problem that KingRanter is having. Should have gone with the X-Box 360 I guess.

    Something I forgot to mention, the eject button still works and I can still remove and insert discs normally.

Try the Wii "RESET".
Here's how:
1. Unplug the Wii for at least 5 minutes.
2. Plug it back in.

Are you useing the 480p or the 480i cables. the cables that came with the wii should work on most tvs, the one with three wires, yellow, red and white. the aftermarket wires have five wires green, red, blue and two that are different than the others that are red and white. i had the same problem with the 480i cable for color video. hope this helps....good luck..

Wii has started turning itself on with blue light displaying.


If your Wii does not actually turn on, as in you could see it on the TV if you had your TV on, then you either got a message on your message board from Nintendo informing you about new Channels, Updates, etc, if it flashes slowly, then gives 2 quick flickers then it is a system update.
