Question about Nintendo Wii Console

2 Answers

The Wii console is not powering up at all.

The console has never been dropped and the A/C power cord is intact. The unit is barely 2 months old. It simply will not power up. I've plugged it into several working outlets.

Hi there, this is a power board failure. It seems to be a manufacturing error considering the fact that, this Wii is only 2 months old. i would excercise the warranty if possible and return for exchange. this is a defective unit.

Wii console got heated up and later on no power supply despite checking with neighbors power adapter. Brand new about 4 months old.Thanks for guidance in advance. ---pat_vv

If it's only 4 months old, call Nintendo Customer Support and explain that your Wii no longer powers on. It should still be under warranty and they'll send you a new Wii.

The wii was working fine then all of a sudden there was no power going to the console. I unplugged it, waited awhile then plugged it back in again, still no power. Can it be the power cord?

Yes accually it can be the power cord.Depending on how old it is and how twisted or bent it is can be the broblem. I would suggest getting a new power cord befor getting a new wii and consulting a wii specailist be for getting a new wii

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.

Unplug the power brick from the wall and the console.
Wait about ten minutes to half an hour.
Reconnect power brick to wall and console.
If nothing helps, you will need to setup a repair process through Nintendo Try calling Nintendo's support hotline, toll free:

Or using their online support:

Online support may not have the answer to what you need, in which case it will lead you to a webform E-Mail service to get personal help. They will be able to tell how old your Wii is through the serial number, and then the repair it for free since it is less than 1 year old.
