  • Check any accessories attached directly to the console to make sure that it is licensed and undamaged. Unlicensed or damaged accessories shouldn't be used with the console.
  • Try using a different wall outlet, or plug a different device into the outlet to make sure the outlet is providing power.
Perform an AC Adapter Reset. To perform an AC Adapter Reset follow these instructions: Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).
  1. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full two minutes.
  2. Unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).
  3. Check the AC Adapter for the following:
    • Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" are molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
    • Check the AC Adapter for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. If the AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be replaced, a replacement can be purchased from Nintendo's online store.
  4. After waiting two minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then the AC Adapter reset was successful.

If these suggestions don't work try visiting Nintendo's help pages at: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts_system.jsp

Our Wii console will not power on and there is a disk in it.


Hi,

Follow the directions below to see if this helps. If not, you may need to contact Wii technical support for repairs.

power issues with the Wii can be fixed by resetting the AC adapter. You can easily reset the AC adapter by following these steps:
  1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip). acunplug.png
  2. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
  3. We also recommend you unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).
  4. While you're waiting, check the AC Adapter for the following:
    • Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
    • Check the AC Adapter for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. If your AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be replaced, you can purchase one from Nintendo's online store.
  5. After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked. If resetting the AC Adapter did not fix your power issues, please continue reading:

    • Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards, controllers, and cheat devices. Some of these products are poorly manufactured and may result in damage to your system. If one of these products is attached to your system, remove it and try resetting the AC Adapter (see above).
    • Check any accessories that connect to the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports or the USB ports of the Wii -- whether licensed or not -- for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. Remove any damaged products and try resetting the AC Adapter again (see above).
    • Make sure the Wii has good ventilation. Avoid operating the Wii while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space. If you have the Wii placed in a vertical position, make sure the vent on the bottom is lined up properly with the hole in the plastic stand and no foreign material is obstructing that hole.
    • Check the vents on the back and side of the Wii for dust build up. The system will shut down if it cannot vent properly to prevent overheating. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.
    • Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch. If you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position.
    • Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC adapter into the back of the Wii (the port is labeled 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet (not a power strip or surge protector). Click here for detailed instructions.
    • Once plugged in, check the power light on the Power button to see if the system is receiving power.

Power glitched, and the wii won't come back on. changed the battery, power is on everything is plugged in


Try this, I had to do this is aswell.
  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. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
  3. After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked.'
If that didnt help try the Nintendo repair service. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/wii_repair_home.jsp?problem=PWRNOPOWER
Or check with Ebay for a new one, Gamestop may have one or even a big box store (wallmart, fred meyers).
Good luck.

Wii will not turn on even though it has power and everything is connected. Help?


This is a common problem with the Wii. Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector. 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.

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 the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10 minutes. 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 5 or 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

Can't turn wii back on


Did you unplug it from the Wii, or from the Wall Outlet? You need to unplug it from the wall outlet, not the Wii. If you haven't unplugged it from the wall outlet and left it unplugged for 5 to 10 minutes, then unplug it from the wall outlet and leave unplugged for a good 5 to 10 minutes.

This is a common problem with the Wii. Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector. 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, so power to the AC adapter needs to be cut off.

My nintendo has no power going to it even tho the a/c adapter is hooked up


You'll need to unplug the AC adapter from the wall outlet and leave in unplugged for 5- or 10 minutes or so. Unplugging it from the Wii does no good.

This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surpised Nintnedo didn't cover this in the owners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked upto 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.

There is no need to buy a new one or a AC adapter. Resetting it should work. 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 the adapter.

You need to reset the AC Adapter. It's a common issue. Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

Everything is plugged in, and it wont turn on


It seems even 5th or 6th problem is this. The AC adapter needs to be reset. Unplug it from the wall outlet for 5 to 10 minutes (NOT from the Wii, it HAS to be from the wall outlet).

Trying to change fuse in wii but need to know where to find it


Is your Wii just not turning on, no indicator lights? No red, yellow, or green, and pressing buttons doesn't work? Try re-setting the AC adapter.

Red light on power brick


Hi ntwrk11,

This happened to me before also. What I learned is that this either means that your console AC adapter (the big power brick) is not getting enough power or is not properly plugged. If this is the case, I would suggest that your try plugging the console to a different wall outlet, and make sure not to use any UPS, surge protectors or power strips to plug in your AC adapter. See if that works.

Also please check the back of the console and see if the power connector at the back is firmly seated, and even if it' seated, I would still suggest that you reseat (unplug and replug) the power cord at the back of the xbox360.

If the above suggestions don't work, and you have another xbox360 or if you know someone who has one, it would be much better to try swapping AC adapters and see if you get a response if you try a known working AC adapter on your console and you will also isolate the problem if it's your game console or just your AC adapter that has the problem.

If all else fails, you may have to call up microsoft for further help and support, since your problem may require servicing of your console.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
