This may be a longshot, but many electronic devices like TVs, dryers with electronic computerized controls, entertainment systems like the Wii, and other devices sometimes get "confused" and won't turn on, turn off, or otherwise work properly, perhaps due to a small power surge in your AC line.
I've found that one of the first things to try when it appears to be a failure of the electronics and not a mechanical issue is to unplug the device at the wall (to make sure that any power adapter is also unplugged) and wait about 10 minutes for any residual electric charge to dissipate. Then plug the device back in and give it a try. This has worked with a television, a Wii console, an electric clothes dryer, and some other devices that I thought had died for good. This may explain why sometimes a device is taken to a repair shop and it works fine.
There are, of course, other reasons that the unit won't turn on, but I would try this first before looking for other reasons for the problem.
Hi there, this is a power board failure. It seems to be a manufacturing error considering the fact that, this Wii is only 2 months old. i would excercise the warranty if possible and return for exchange. this is a defective unit.
The light on our Wii would not turn ON, and would not power up. No red, no yellow, nothing.
To fix, we unplug the Wii console. We turn the WIi console so that the
back-side fan area is pointing towards the ceiling and then vacuum the
fan area. Then we place it back into the Wii stand, plug it in, and the
red light comes on. It powers up and works perfectly again. Obviously
this won't solve everyone's issues (i.e. electronic component
failures), but it has worked several times for us. Definitely worth a
shot before shipping your unit off for repair.
I think the fan gets clogged and WIi protects itself from overheating, but do not really know why this works... but it does!
