You can press and hold the power button on the Wii for 10 seconds, and if that does not fix it, try and open up the console and reset the system. Here is a video to help you take it apart:

SOURCE: PS3 been working fine over

TV Connectivity
The issue of connectivity between the PS3 and the display is very complex and depends on the type of TV (Analog, Digital or HD Ready), the maker of TV (until recently, only Toshiba TVs have component AV connections as standard in Europe, most other Euro TV sets use SCART which can not carry an HD signal) and specification of TV (the very latest HD Ready TV sets have wider connectivity options than earlier HD "capable" TVs from the same manufacturer which may have lacked HDMI), and finally the configuration of the PS3 model purchased.

you should make sure that the cords are plugged in correctly in both the wii and the tv. if not, you should try different cords and a different tv.

My wii is not working, we turned it off one day and it did not turn back on when we went to play it. Now the light won't come on and everything is pluged in.


No Power
    Most power issues with the Wii can be fixed by resetting the AC adapter. You can easily reset the AC adapter by following these steps:

      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. We also recommend you unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).

      4. While you're waiting, check the AC Adapter for the following:
        • Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensedproducts are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
        • Check the AC Adapter for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. If your AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be replaced, you can purchase one from Nintendo's online store.

      5. 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.

Try another wall outlet, and if possible try another AC Adapter. If the same thing happens then you know for sure its a problem with the Wii. If its under warranty, bring it back to the store and get a replacement. If its not under warranty then you'll need to get a new one.

First, Check your wii adaptor, In normal conditions the wii adapter provides the output 12volt. You can test the output using multimeter or a 12volt lamp.

then
plug it into the outlet, If the light is still off/flashing, disconnect the AC Adapter unplug from the wall outlet, wait 2 minutes and plug it back into the outlet. Turn the console power ON.

hopefully this help..

Unplug it from the wall outlet (NOT from the Wii). Leave it unplugged for a good 5 to 10 minutes. The AC adapter needs to be reset (more on that below).

Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surprised 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 10minutes. 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.

Wii console will not come on


First things first. We'll start from the beginning. Unplug the AC Adapter from the wall and from the Wii. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Then plug it back in. 9 times out of 10 your power supply needs to be reset. The only way to reset it is to unplug it from the wall and the wii and let it sit for 15 min. Try this first and report back if it worked. Even if you think you have done this already do it again.

Wii will do everything but it won't play games.....


I had the same problem. No new games would play but the old games played fine. I clicked on the spinning disc icon (where the game should come up) and it prompted me to do an update. I accepted. Once the update was complete (took about a minute or 2) the new games worked fine.

My Wii Keeps showing "An Error Has Occured".


10 hours!? wow, hard gamer.
This amount of playing nonstop is dangerous, and causes it to overheat. Leave it unplugged for 24 hours, maybe put it under a fan.
Then try, if your still getting an error, it may be fryed.
