Wii worked fine yesterday. Will not power up
is a common problem with the Wii. Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii. It happens
almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.
if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back
on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators
won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went
out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.
You need to reset the AC adapter to get the Wii to work again. There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset.
Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug
it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to
Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet,
and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the
AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the
adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front
should be lit up.
