It,s the same problem i have. It is the thermal unit that opens up when unit over-heats. I'm an electrician, and was able to take my unit apart. So far i can't find the part to fix it. One place on the internet says that Lakewood has filed chapter 7 . I could make heater work, if i jump out the part, but would be unsafe if a overheating problem acurrs.

Nothing happens it turns on thats it

Check the outlit that you are using switch it to another outlit then. Or the ac adapter might be breaking.

Internal switch may be too tight to toggle and became disconnected from plastic mechanical slide mechanism. Replace switch for $20.00 and you should be good to go.

If its plugged into power bar, try plugging direct to outlit, and try another outlit. You can try holding down the on/off switch for 10 secondes. If doesnt come on, its a problem with the power supply.

Wii console is plugged in put won't turn on or power up...the thing is only four months old.

If you are using a muti-out lit device, unplug and use only wall outlits, if it is plugged into the wall, then plug in a working lamp to that same outlit to make sure the outlit is working. If you roll up the power cords alot or pull from outlit from the cord and not the base of the cord, you might have damage the cord internally. If you have a friend who owns a working WII then try using there cords on your console.
If nothing works, then possible the wii overheated. For further help on that, go to and go to support link.
