Wii fried in an electrical storm

I lent my game system to my cousin and they had an electrical storm and the system is fried. What do you think the best option to fix this is? I am assuming their homeowners insurance will cover this but has anyone tried to make a claim? Do I have to buy a new console? Thanks

    Mine also stopped working after our power flickered out! We had to unplug and plug it back in several times before it started working again!

Hey Sorry for your loss, But I don't think you can fix it for cheap this kind of repair will be expensive and I wouldn't count on it either. Your best option is to buy a new one and make a claim Tom

Our Wii had the same thing happen to it, and after unplugging and replugging it back in, and it began to work, see if that's your problem, before replacing it and wasting boatloads of cash.

Upgrade wii


you mean update? go to system settings. at the very last one, there should be a tab that says system update, agree to everything and enjoy your game, even though my cousin and I have the same problem and it didn't work, I would be thrilled if you got to play it, so try and see if it works!

It is possible that your power supply fried but everything else is still ok. Something like this could happen during a lightning storm. If you know someone with a wii, try to use their ac adapter (with a 120V adapter). If this works, then you just need a new power supply which is much cheaper.

I THINK I JUST FRIED MY WII THERE WAS A POP NOISE AFTER A POWER SURGE IS THERE ANY WAY THAT i CVAN CHANGE THE FUSE OR IS MY WII FRIED FOREVER?


i have had some experience in taken apart a wii before to modify the case and i never noticed a fuse inside i know some systems (not sure if hte wii does) have a built in surge protection and to reset it you must unplug it from the wall for some time and then plug it back in. But i do fear you may have "fried" your wii.

Wii remote


did you try re-syncing it... i thiknk there is a button on the back of the wii-mote, benoeath the battery cover.. a little red button... that sync's it to your wii... try that and try taking out the battery for a few seconds.

try reconnecting your wii sensor bar to the wii...

i don't think you can overcharge it.. my girlfriends cousin leaves it on the charger 24-7 and it works fine.

No power


Well no because i just had a terrible storm too and my WII went off when i was playing it too so it all depends how long you have had your WII and if so if someone messed with the console.

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!!

Fried Wii


Unplug the power supply from the wii and the wall. You must unplug it from both. Wait a full 5 min. and then plug it into the wii then the wall. This resets the power supply. 9 times out of 10 this is all you have to do.
