In this case I would stop using it, unplug it and call Nintendo. It would seem to have a short in it and I would not risk burning your house down.

MY WII WONT TURN ON AT ALL THE LIGHT DOESNT EVEN COME ON WHAT COULD THE PROBLEM BE.


There is a fuse and I think the fuse is the problem if you believe that your power supply is good

Buy a tri-crew drive ship on ebay $2
fix it by your self because you have no warranty (it is 6 years old)
open it up then replace the fuse
here is where the fuse should be http://i47.tinypic.com/2lbko7b.png

This will also help to open up the wii http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repair/Repairing-Nintendo-Wii-Drive-Board-Fuses/4029/1

Make sure to order the fuse with the screw driver too. It should cost you less than $10
If you don't want to replace the fuse, just use wire and solder the two solder pads for the fuse but this method is bad.

Please rate if this helped you.

Wii blows fuse when inserting gamecube controller


Hi,

The obvious answer to this would be.
That the gamecube controller, is faulty.
Or the controllers port on the Wii, is faulty.
Try using a different Controller on the Wii.
Or try inserting the gamecube controller, Into a different Port.

My wii blew a fuse and i want to know what to look for


hello the fuse inside is made of glass if you open the wii up you should see the power supply the fuse might have a cover over it, if the fuse is black it's blown, if you put a nother 1 in and blows again the then you have a dead short somewhare make sure the power off. good luck.

Power outage this am. Wii won't even turn on


Usually, after a power outage, a power spike (when the power returns) can disable/blow the fuse in the AC adapter for the Wii.

Try the following steps in this order:

FIRST:
- unplug the Wii's power cord from the wall, and leave it unplugged (from 5 mins. to 5 hours). Then, plug it back into the wall. (Unplugging the power cord from the back of the Wii will not help. You need to unplug the power cord from the wall.)
- This usually helps reset the fuse circuit in the AC adapter, and your Wii should work again.

SECOND:
- open the panel on the AC adapter box in the power cord; since the screws are proprietary, you will need to creatively use existing tools to turn the screws
- check the 3A fuse in that box; if it looks blown, then replace it

THIRD:
- it might be cheaper to replace the AC adapter with another one

FOURTH:
- get the unit repaired

MUST DO:
- buy a SURGE PROTECTOR power bar, and plug all of your expensive items into it (to prevent this from happening again).

Hope that helps!

Nintendo Wii keeps on turning itself off? I thought it was the fuse on the plug but it isn't. It overheats and cuts out after an hour and half.


should you play a game for more than 90 minutes i mean its a prety new system and still fixing ''klinks'' and stuff so respect that you can even play it.
