    Try unplugging it and vacuuming the air vents out. I read that when they get too much dust in them, it will shut the wii down. Fixed my problem.

    How are you trying to turn it on, using the Wii Remote's power button, or the power button on the front of the system?

Okay, I had this problem also, it made me freak out, considering it was only 1 week old! what I did, and it worked, is
1. unplug every wire connected to the system (wires to/from wall, to sensor bar, and to/from TV)
2. unplug every other thing connected to it (i.e. memory cards, older controlers, etc...)
3. let it stand off in the dark for a couple of minutes (I reccomend 5 minutes or so)
4. plug the wires back in
5. turn it on
6. put anything else back in (i.e. the memory card)

If that doesn't work, or if this keeps happening, I reccomend bringing it back to the place you bought it (Walmart, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc)
, b/c they can give you a new one, or your money back. However, the warrenty could expire, or not even exist if you bought it online, or if you've had it too long.

I hope I helped you!

I just recently move my entertainment center around and plug all of including the Wii console. so when i put everything back, plug them all in the Wii console did not work... I thought i meight have...


It's very possible. If you plug in the power source for you Wii and no light comes on at the power button for the Wii, it is a problem with the power cord. If not, it may be a problem with the Wii itself. Test this out to see whether you need to get a new power cord or to have you Wii sent in for repair.

No power to wii console


Try a friends power cord on your wii. If it works fine, buy a new power cord for your wii. If it doesn't work still with your friends cord, it's the connector on your wii and it will need replacing. Also make sure to try a different outlet in your home as well; the outlet itself could be fried.

Hello my name is greg and we were having trouble with our electricity and we shut off the wrong sircut breaker and now our WII doesnt turn on but we are unsure if it is the power cord


The best way is checking the power cord with voltmeter or some unit like charger for mobile phone (plug it and look the phone charging).If the power cord is OK plug the Wii AC adapter.If Wii not turn on check the AC adapter with voltmeter.If working the problem is in your Wii console and it need repairing.If AC adapter not work just buy new.

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.

The official troubleshooting from Nintendo is-

    This indicates a problem with the Wii console and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.

Fixed it by taking it back to Best Buy who replaced it within two hours of its original purchase. New unit works great.
