Wii will not power down.

Connected Wii to internet for the first time and now the console will not power completely down (unless unplugged) and Rockband dongles blink?

    Thanks for your help but that did not work. It is as if my console is going into a standby mode instead of turning completely off. The power indicator light on the console goes from green to yellow when I try to power down instead of green to red.

Press the power button on WII remote #1 and hold until the console shuts down. Could take several seconds.

    Press the power button on the console and hold it until the console shuts down. May need to move your thumb so the led is visible. May take several seconds for the console to shut down and the red LED to light.

The Wii console light will turn green


Hi sharonkayh,

Try the following:

1) Completely power down your system by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the AC Adapter from the Wii for a moment, then plug it back in.

2) Make sure your Wii console has the most current Wii system menu. Download the latest update, and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved.

This is done by:
  1. Make sure your Wii console is successfully connected online.
  2. Access the Wii System Settings.
  3. Click on the blue arrow twice to reach the Wii System Settings 3 menu options.
  4. Select "Wii System Update" and press the A Button.
  5. Select "Yes," and read any messaging regarding obtaining the update. If you agree to the messaging, select "I Accept."
  6. The Wii console will now search for the latest Wii System Update.
  7. If an update is available, it will be downloaded and installed automatically.

I hope this can help you - Source: Nintendo Website.

Kind Regards

Have connected wii to cable via cisco asa 5505 box. getting error code 52020. have restarted comcast modem to no effect.


Error Code: 52020 What to do will depend on how you are connecting your Wii console. Please use the info below that describes how you are connecting.
    Connecting directly to a modem:
  1. Power off the Wii. Connect the official Nintendo Wii LAN adapter to the Wii, and insert a working ethernet cable into the official Nintendo Wii LAN Adapter.
  2. Unplug all devices from your modem. Most modems are unable to support more than one device at a time.
  3. Power cycle your modem. To do this, unplug the power from your modem and let it rest for 20 seconds. Plug the power back in. Connect the Ethernet cable from your Wii console to the Ethernet port on your modem.

  4. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP address, Default Gateway, Subnet Mask, and DNS information. To access these settings:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings, including the settings listed above. Input these exactly as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection.
  5. If you are still unable to connect and you are using broadband Internet, then your ISP likely uses PPPoE to establish a connection to their network. The Wii is not compatible with PPPoE. Contact your ISP for more assistance.

    Connecting to a router:
  1. Ensure that an Ethernet Cable is running from the WAN or Internet Port on the router to the modem. Power cycle the modem by unplugging it from the electrical outlet, waiting a moment, and then plugging it back in.
  2. Power off the Wii console, and insert the Wii LAN Adapter into one of the USB ports on the back of the Wii console.
  3. Run an ethernet cable from the Wii to a numbered port on the router.
  4. Power on the Wii console, and run a connection test through the Wii console's online settings.
  5. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's settings on your PC:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings, including the settings listed above. Input these as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection, except for the IP address. The IP address needs to be different. Add 10 to the IP address and use that number in the Wii console's settings.

Wii console will not power on. Tried unpluging


Nintendo designed the AC adapter with a protection mechanism agaist a power loss or surge. Even if the Wii was connected to a power strip, the mechanism may be triggered since it is very sensitive to voltage change. Follow the steps in the article to reset your AC adapter and to hopefully revive your Wii to avoid sending it in for service.

Wii console not working correctly


When you connect to the internet wirelessly and Wii Connect24 your Wii will stay connected and recieve messages, updates, etc. That is why the disk area stays blue and the amber light stays on. Sometimes this will create a power failure. Just unplug your Wii from the wall and let it rest for a few minutes and plug it back in. The problem should be solved.
