My wii won't turn at all & isn't lighting up.. how do i fix it?


Nintendo designed the AC adapter with a protection mechanism agaist a power loss or surge. Even if the Wii was connected to a power strip, the mechanism may be triggered since it is very sensitive to voltage change. Follow the steps in the article to reset your AC adapter and to hopefully revive your Wii to avoid sending it in for service.

Wii went dead after power surge


Hi,

Please visit the site HERE it.You will find a solution to your problem.

I would also suggest holding the power button on the Wii Remote itself to turn it on, or unplug your Wii Console's power cable and audio/video cable for 90 seconds. Then plug power in first, then AV cable.

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.

The power button...console will not turn on. No


I see this issue on every site and Wii forum I visit. Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

How to reset ac power adaptor on the Wii


Try unplugging your wii console's AC adapter for your wall outlet to reset it didn't correct this, then if you can, try using/borrowing another AC adapter and see if perhaps the power surge blew the fuse that is inside of it.

But if your Wii console still will not power up, then you will have to call Nintendo's 1-800-255-3700 (6 am ~ 7 pm Pacific, everyday) Customer Service number to set up a repair, as the power surge may have damaged something in your console.

Wii completely stops working after power outage


I just had the same problem as everyone else. I had a brief power loss and our new Wii system's power would no longer work. To fix the problem, I unplugged everything from our Wii and unplugged the power cord from the outlet. I let the system set for 10 minutes and re-plugged the power only. That did the trick. Then I was able to plug everything back up and we are now back to playing.

Supposedly, doing the steps above resets the Wii according to the Nintendo online trouble shooting guide.

Unplug the power adapter at both ends (at the console and especially at the power outlet). Give the capacitors at least a minute to completely dissipate residual energy. Then, hook it back up and it should be good to go.

I would give credit to someone else for this super simple solution. But, it's all over the internet.
