Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii console will not turn on

Power source is good, wii light shows that it is getting power, but will not turn on. The game disk for guitar hero is in the console. We have tried plugging and unplugging the game to no avail. the light still stays red, so we know that there is power there, but it will not power up. Can you tell me what is wrong and how to fix it?

    My Wii was going between yellow and red for a while when shut down and now the light doesn't even turn on, or the Wii for that matter. There was also a branch hitting the high voltage wires which triped the circuits at the power station by us 3 times, causing us to lose power several times. I am starting to think the 2 problems are connected. I am currently trying to reset the cord by detaching it from plug and Wii. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also gonna check out nintendo as well.

    I just get the read light and I can actually hear a faint clicking if I keep holding it in. I've tried a nuber of combinations of holding buttons down but nothing helps. I have tried unoulgging it for weeks and still nothing.
