    I posted the comment about the cable box being associated with the Wii not powering on....just to let everyone know....I would not have thought they would be associated, but upon completely unhooking ther cable box from my TV, my Wii powered on and worked fine! To my surprise and happiness....I would not have thought that a cable box would affect it but evidently it does. I am so happy...especially sice we just got it fot Christmas! But one scary thought....maybe with what I have read about power surges I should consider unplugging the Wii when not in use? (Esp. during thunder storms)

    If a power surge broke the Wii, I'm pretty confident Nintendo won't fix it for free. When you plug it in are you getting the little red "standby" light on the power button? Have you tried powering it on using the power button on the console rather than the one on the Wii Remote?

Hmmm............I'd say that the power overload from the outage has destroyed your poor Wii. This is a commen problem, That's why surge protecters were invented :P. Send it to Nintendo, they'll fix it on the house

Tip

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!

We recently had a power outage. After this, the Wii console power light would not come on. I unplugged the power supply adaptor on both sides, left it 2 minutes, and plugged back in. Now, the Wii console...


The best solution would be to just move the sensor bar to the top of your TV. Then you could change the settings back to the bottom and move your sensor bar back. If that is not an option, just try your best to get back to the settings to change it back.

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!

No power


You may try to reset the AC adapter by following steps below.

1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).

2. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
3. While you're waiting, unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, memory cards, hookup cables, and Sensor Bar). Remove all of these from the outlet and the Wii.
4. Also check to see that controller cords, AC adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed and do not have exposed wires. If you find any frayed cords or exposed wires, you should replace those parts.
5. After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. Check to see if the power light comes on.

If the steps above didn't work, I suggest you go at http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/wii_repair_home.jsp?problem=PWRNOPOWER and send the unit and power adapter for repair.

Wii will not receive power


This has happened to me, what you need to do is remove the power cord from both the wii and wall outlet, and wait a few minutes while the converter box on the cord resets itself. I know it sounds strange, but it works.

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.
