We bought a wii for Christmas. We disconnected our wii for a few days and when we tried to reconnect it the power no longer came on. We tried plugging it into another outlet but it still did not work. Is there anything we can do to fix this or is it a defective unit.

Try to play music cd's and other games to see if the Wii will read anything. Make sure the discs are clean as well. If the Wii is still not playing anything then that means the drive is bad and would need to be replaced.
1. push the reset button and if that doesn't work unplug all cords and
memory cards (including sd) from wii and unplug av from the wii and the
outlet in wall. Wait 2-3 min or unplug the wii overnight and The trick i use was to literally smack the power supply
on the ground and plug it back in. It seemed to work for a few weeks, until you buy a new power cord Don't call Nintendo unless you've got some money. it'll be $82 bucks.
The same happens to me all the time, when this happens you must either press the reset button and wait a few seconds, or press and hold the power button until it turns off and turn it back on, and as a last resort, disconnect the wii adapter and reconnect it.
We had this same problem so I did a google search for 2nd wii remote not connecting or staying connected and this is what we came up with and did this and it really works! So hopefully this will help all of you to. Good luck! K and M
Wii Remote not being recognized by the Wii Console (lights on the Wii Remote flash when you press a button, but then go out) - Most Common: Getting the Wii console to recognize (or "sync" with) a Wii Remote, especially one that did not come in the box with your Wii console, may require doing a few additional steps before it can be synced. Additionally, a Wii Remote that was working, but is no longer being recognized (or has "lost its sync") may need to be re-synced. Please use the troubleshooting steps listed below, which our experience has shown can solve many Wii Remote issues. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp Try these steps!
Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into the wall outlet.
Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process described below.
After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the batteries.
Press and release the small red button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the Wii Remote will blink.
Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture below).
When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.
