The button has to be pressed until you see the light come on try using the wimote power button on the upper left corner hold it until you see the light if its yellow its in standby if its green its on you should see the disk entry area turn blue a sec when it comes on. Then it should be green on the power light if no lights in just a couple or 3 seconds holding it down you may have 2 bad wii's in a row. If you take it back ask them if they have a test model on the floor and tell them to show you exactly how it works to power on and off.

Synching can be completed only if a compatible game disc is running in the console. Compatible game discs (such as Wii Fit) will display the Wii Balance Board icon on their packaging. The Wii Balance Board must be synced to each compatible game individually. These sync settings will be saved even after the console is turned off.
Follow these directions to sync the Wii Balance Board (so that it is recognized by the Wii console):
Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc (such as Wii Fit) in the Wii console.
Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.
Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking.
Press and release the SYNC button on the console while the Power LED on the board is still blinking.
The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is complete.
The sensor bar cable and the RCA cable can be ignored for this problem. In fact, just disconnect them and go with just the power cable. If you are getting power to your Wii, it will display a green power light on the front when you power it on without the sensor bar or the RCA cable plugged in. (It should also display an orange light when it is off, if it is getting power from the outlet.) Take the Wii into another room with working outlets and plug it in. Attempt to power it on with the power button on the Wii, and with a working Wii remote. If neither will power the Wii on, try borrowing a Wii power cable from a friend, or purchase a replacement. If the new power cable does not fix the problem, see if the Wii is still under warranty and send it in for repair.
If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to
try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that
problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving
disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide,
that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It
also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a
