Well I unplugged the Wii for 2 hours and pugged it back into a wall out let not the power strip and now its working again. I first tried it for 20 mins and it didnt chang any thing so I let it set and came back to it. This is odd thing to happen! this must be a default all Wii's have. Way too many people are complaining about the same thing.

I had a power surge about a month ago and now my wii will not turn on. My wii is pluged into a surge protector.


I posted this elsewhere on here too, but I'll post it here too so it helps you.

This is a common problem with the Wii. You wouldn't believe how often I read about this. I'm very surpised Nintnedo didn't cover this in the owners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went out, etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter, not the Wii itself.

There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10 minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

My wii will not turn on, I have never had a problem with it before. I checked all of the plugs and everything seems great except it will not turn on.


It seems every 5th problem I see is this issue. Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii or in the Owner's Manual.

Everything is plugged in, and it wont turn on


It seems even 5th or 6th problem is this. The AC adapter needs to be reset. Unplug it from the wall outlet for 5 to 10 minutes (NOT from the Wii, it HAS to be from the wall outlet).

Wii won't power up


Leave the wii power brick unplugged from the wall socket for 15 min then try to plug it back in. This worked for me.

Storm last night, now Wii won't power up


Unplug everything! There is a "breaker" in the power supply and it may need to be reset. Just unplug all cables from the TV and outlets. Let it sit for a couple hours then plug everything back in and it should work fine. If not then the power supply has shorted out due to a strong power surge. You can claim it under your home owners insurance or call Nintendo and try to get it replaced. Thanks! Good luck and happy gaming!!

My wii won't turn on


You likely had a power failure. You need to reset your AC adapter. Here's how:

  1. unplug the power cord from the wii. Unplug the adapter from your surge protector or the power outlet.
  2. wait 90 to 120 seconds. (Some people say to wait 30 seconds. Wrong! At least 90 secs is required for the AC adapter to rest.
  3. plug stuff back in and you're good to go.
NOTE: electronics like your wii, ps3, etc should be protected from power surges and power failures! Plug them into a good surge protector. Always!
