Question about Nintendo Wii Console

There is no power to the Wii console

I have tried plugging it in to a known working outlet and still no power. We had a power outage and hasn't worked since. It was working fine the night before. The hand controllers are blinking as is the fit board.
Please advise.

Our wii is about 6 years old. It was working fine yesterday, today it doesnt even act likes it's getting power. No lights come on. Reset doesn't work, switched outlets...nothing happening.


Wii console's are known to over-heat. Try letting it cool down for a day with no power cables plugged in. Try and turn it on the next day, and if it doesn't work, my best guess is that it over-heated to the point of giving up. And when you plug it back in, blow in all the ports and cables just to be safe. If none of this works, it is either broken or needs more expertise than I can give.

My wii went off after a thunderstorm and doesn't get on anymore, can I do something to fix it? I've already changed the battery inside but nothing cheanged.


First make sure the circuit is live - Are there other things on that circuit? Do they work? If not, check that the breaker hasn't tripped, and reset it if necessary. Next, check that that specific outlet wasn't damaged. Plug something else into it. Does it work? If not, the outlet needs to be replaced. Also plug the Wii into another outlet. If it works, this also confirms the original outlet has been damaged. If the Wii still doesn't power on, the power supply has probably been damaged. Unless you can replace it yourself, it probably isn't worth having it repaired.

When i try to turn my Wii on it will not come on there are no lights or anything how do i fix this problem


This happens if you have had a power outage. Here's what you should do:

  1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).
  2. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
  3. Unplug anything connected to the USB ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).
  4. After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked.
Hope that works for you.

We had a power outage and no longer have power to our Wii game. We unplugged everything, waited and plugged everything back in. Still doesn't work. I know this work from some people, but, unfortunately...


This is most likely not an issue with the Wii. Try using it in a different outlet and a different TV. Most likely your circuit breaker needs a fuse to be reset. Check it out and see if there are any switches the do not face the same direction as the rest.

Try using a friend's power adapter just in case yours got fried. If you don't know anyone that has a wii you can buy new adapters at stores like Gamestop for I think $20. If it doesn't work they have a policy now where you can return them even if they're opened within 7 days. If a new adapter doesn't work then your wii may be fried. Try calling Nintendo and see if they can do a repair for a cost, or if you are still under warranty and if they'll cover you.

First I would try plugging in the Wii at another outlet. If that doesn't work I would try borrowing a friend's power cable for the Wii that is known to work (or buy a replacement) and see if that fixes it. If not, hope that you still have a warranty on it or you are out of luck.

The wii wont turn on


Try plugging the Wii into a known working outlet.

If that doesn't fix the problem, then try another known working AC Adapter if you can.

If you do these two steps and the wii doesn't turn on then the main board is bad and if your Wii is under warranty then contact Nintendo to have it repaired otherwise replace the system.

Won't work after power out


Just had the same issue after a brief power outage. Following the advice on this board, I simply unhooked the power cord to both the Wii and the outlet, waited a good 10 mins and hooked the cord back up - first to the outlet then to the Wii. Presto! Power light is back on.

Power Outage & Now Wii Won't Power Up...


When this same thing happened to me, I unplugged the Wii power supply from the wall (not just from the back of the Wii) and let it sit unplugged for about 10 minutes. When I plugged it back in, everything was fine.

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.
