Wii won't turn on.


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. After you've waited a full 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter back in on both ends and check to see if the power light comes on.

WII DOES NOT TURN ON AT THE POWER BUTTON


remove the power cord from the wii. hold the power button in for 15 seconds.
plug the power back in. if the power light comes on check the color.
green is on, yellow is standby and red is totally off.

if there is a light press the power button and see if it turns on. if it does not then from a Wiimote, press and hold the power button on the remote. this should turn the console on. if the console does not turn on and the remote batteries are good you can try one more thing IF the light is on.

press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds on the system. disconnect power and replug. if you still cannot turn it on then your system is bricked or damaged and needs replacement.

in any case the power button is broken you can turn the console on and off from any remote

When I turn on my DS (I have original) green light light like always the screen flashes (0,1 second I think) and all go off


If the power light is green or orange and your screen remains blank, follow these steps.

      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 (how to), and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved.

My Wii has a red light when plugged in, and a green one while turned, on, the problem is, nothing is displayed on the tv or heard, also, the disk drive whirrs for a few second after turning on. The tv...


If the light is red, it means WiiConnect24 is turned off. Green means the system is turned on and it's normal for the Wii to whirr a bit when it's initially turned on.
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.
That said, Nintendo recommends calling them if this doesn't fix your problem. Hope this helps.

The power button turns green when turned on on my WII console. However, no image is seen on t.v. What can be the problem?


The power button turns from yellow to green. This is correct.
Verify the cable is plugged into the back of the Wii and the Red, White and Yellow connections are plugged into the corresponding places on the TV'
With your TV remote go through the "Inputs" on the TV to verify operation. If you still don't see anything, you should try it on another TV before returning the Wii for repair.
Good luck with this.

Power is on but screen is black


I found this [temporary] solution at http://www.wiierror.com/wii-black-screen.php:

(via email, thanks Steven) This happened to me once, but I fixed it. Here is how:
Eject the disk
Unplug the wii at the back
Wait 1 minute
Plug it back in
Turn it on from the remote
Press reset if it does not show up
Hold the power button to shut it off
Turn it on once more.
I don't know how, but it seemed to work for me. The problem happened when I was trying to load the Mii channel. Hope this helps !

(via email, thanks Andrew)
The first time I shut down my Wii, the light went orange (as it should). When I turned on the power with my wii remote the next day, the wii\'s light turned green but the screen was black.
The treatment was the same as from Black Screen, No Connection: Unplug the Wii\'s power supply unit, then replug; turn system on with wii remote.
The difference is: this problem can strike in more places than just by loading the Mii Channel. Also, I think the green light being on (yet there being a black screen) is a common symptom as well.
