Check all of the wires going into and outof the wii. Make sure none have come out or been knocked loose. Also make sure all the plugs are on and your fuse has not blown. The first one works.

I selected widescreen instead of regular screen and now it doesnt have a picture

- Power on Wii, give it a few seconds to boot
- Hold DOWN on the directional pad of the Wii remote
- While holding DOWN, press the RESET button on the Wii

This should reset your video settings while leaving the rest of your settings intact.

Best of luck

Everything is plugged in but your Wii won't turn on

Okay so you have everything plugged in, but all of a sudden your Wii won't turn on, right? Maybe there was a power outage or your circuit breaker was flipped, or maybe nothing happened, but the fact remains that it won't work and you don't know why.

There is a decent chance that your Wii's power cable needs to be reset.

To reset the power cable you need to:
1) Unplug the power cable from the Wii and the wall.
2) Let it sit and rest for 10-15 minutes.
3) Plug everything back in.
4) Turn on your Wii.
It should work at this point if that is the problem.

It may sound silly but Nintendo built in the reset mechanism due to power cable failures and it often is the resolution to a Wii not turning on.

Good luck!

I have internet through runs through the sb5101u surfboard motorola modem. i bought the lan adaptor to go to the wii, for netflix, but it won't connect to the internet. error code 52020

Here is the solution from nintendo:

  1. Power off the Wii. Connect the official Nintendo Wii LAN adapter to the Wii, and insert a working ethernet cable into the official Nintendo Wii LAN Adapter.
  2. Unplug all devices from your modem. Most modems are unable to support more than one device at a time.
  3. Power cycle your modem. To do this, unplug the power from your modem and let it rest for 20 seconds. Plug the power back in. Connect the Ethernet cable from your Wii console to the Ethernet port on your modem.
  4. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP address, Default Gateway, Subnet Mask, and DNS information. To access these settings:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings, including the settings listed above. Input theseexactly as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection.
  5. If you are still unable to connect and you are using broadband Internet, then your ISP likely uses PPPoE to establish a connection to their network. The Wii is not compatible with PPPoE. Contact your ISP for more assistance.

After fixing Wii console power light is not getting on ? what next

Did you open up the Wii console and perform self-maintenance inside of it? If so, you may have caused damage to a vital component needed for the Wii to work properly. Regardless, if the Wii light isn't turning on, unplug the power cable from both the Wii and the wall and leave it unplugged for a couple of minutes. Plug it back in and check again.

If it still doesn't work, leave it unplugged for the rest of the night and try again in the morning. Beyond that, if it's still experiencing problems, call Nintendo. Don't tell them that you opened up the Wii console (if that's what you did) or they will note it on your file and the warranty will become void.

Plug wii in and turn on and get nothing. the tv

If it isn't turning on the power cable probably needs to be reset. Unplug the power cable from your Wii and the wall and let it rest for 10-15 minutes. It sounds silly, but try it. Nintendo built in a reset mechanism for power adapter failures.

Wii wont power on

Your power cable may need to be reset. Try unplugging the power cable from your Wii and the wall for 10-15 minutes and just letting it rest. Then plug everything back together and give it a shot. It may sound like it wouldn't do anything but it will.

My nintendo wii will not turn on

Unplug all of the cables from the Wii and the wall and TV and let it "rest" for 10 minutes. This is like a reset for the cables and, once you do this, it should work fine.
