Have you tried using a known Good power Adapter and see if the unit will power ON?
-First remove the power adapter, then press and hold down the power button for at least 10-15 seconds just to drain any power left in the main board. -after doing the power drain, reconnect the power adapter and power the system ON again see if it will power. - if the unit will still not power using a Known good power adapter and you also did the power drain then the problem is most likely to be the power port where the adapter connects to is not relaying any power to the main board of the unit or the main board of the unit is not distributing power properly on the machine to have it power ON. wither way you will have to go and have the unit checked if that is the case.
NOTE: try a known Good Power Adapter first, if that fails you can disregard the other Troubleshooting steps and go have the unit checked to avoid any fuzz...
The wii power light is yellow because you have wiiconnect24 turned on in the wii system options. Wiiconnect24 constantly keeps your wii connected to the internet by staying in a low power mode, if you receive any messages while int his mode the disk opening will flash blue. If you don't want this option just go into the wii systems settings and turn it off. If you wish to have it but want to turn it fully off just hold the power button on the main console until the power light turns red.
It is very possible the power supply has burnt out, or the fuse next to power supply. The newer systems do not have much air flow and are made with cheaper parts that can easily be overheated. Try leaving it unplugged for few hours, press and hold power button with it turned off, wait half hour more, and see if it will turn back on. If it doesn't turn back on, then you will need a voltmeter and test power from power supply to the main circuit board. If no power, supply is bad, if there is power, then there could be a faulty capacitor or chip which can be found with an ohmmeter in the ohm setting.
Usually, after a power outage, a power spike (when the power returns) can disable/blow the fuse in the AC adapter for the Wii.
- 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.
- 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
- it might be cheaper to replace the AC adapter with another one
Try a different outlet to make sure your outlet didn't go bad on you.
Then if you know your on a good working outlet, reseat the power adapter to the WII.
If that doesn't do it then your adapter might be bad so if you can, try another known good working adapter and that should do the trick. If it doesn't then the main board on the Wii is bad and if your Wii is under warranty you'll need to call Nintendo.
Try a different power outlet and if that doesn't work reseat the ac adaptor into the Wii.
If that still doesn't work, try another known working ac adaptor and if the Wii still doesn't turn on then that means that the Wii has a bad main board and you'll need to replace the Wii or have it sent in for service if its still under warranty.
I have had the same problem. Sometimes it is a problem with the Nintendo servers, according to my fellow MKWii Clan members. Most of the time it seems to be caused by a problem with your Wii connecting to other Wii's. Disconnect from WiFi, go to Main menu. Turn off the Wii, at the console, holding the button 'till the light goes red. Give it a minute. then turn off the power and unplug the Wii. Then turn off your Router. Give it 5 mins. then turn on your router, waiting 'till broadband is up and running, then plug in and turn on the Wii. then try to go WorldWide.This has worked for myself and many of my MKWii Clan members, and it generally sorts the problem.
