    Have you tried another wall outlet to make sure the one that you Wii is hooked up to now is still good?

Sounds like the unit may have experienced over voltage, there is a fuse on the board however I would take the easy route and test a new power brick to see if this solves the issue. Thank you

My son was playing his wii and set down the controlers for about ten minutes came back to his game and its like it cant see the signal. I dont know what happened or how to fix it. I have tried unplugging...


Hi there,
Your Wii controller has a power saver function built into to turn off the controller and save battery life. If it's not recognizing the controller, try rebooting the Wii. If that doesn't work then your Wii controller needs to b re-synced.

If it's not powering up at all then the batteries need to be replaced.

Wii power problem!


You are not getting the correct voltage into the Wii, this can happen one of three ways. (1) The power converter you have is not converting the power correctly, (2) running on converters are not exactly matching the correct voltage and wattage has strained your power supply and damaged the Wii, or (3) the power supply itself just failed as a result of any number of normal electrical conditions.

Want to play again and turn on wii Console no picture, why


You need to unplug the AC adapter from the wall outlet for 5 or 10 minutes (NOT from the Wii, you have to unplug it from the wall outlet). Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surprised 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 up to 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.

You need to reset the AC adapter to get the Wii to work again. 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 10minutes. 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 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

Power Outage & Now Wii Won't Power Up...


When this same thing happened to me, I unplugged the Wii power supply from the wall (not just from the back of the Wii) and let it sit unplugged for about 10 minutes. When I plugged it back in, everything was fine.
