Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Wii Console will not turn off. After pressing the Power off button the console light goes from green to yellow (not red.) After about 5-10 minutes the blue light will start to cycle on and off and the game disc will spin. Once I eject the disc the blue light will cease but the yellow light remains on.

Try turning it off on the console and not with the controller. turning it off with controller turns it yellow. press and hold the power button on console for 5 seconds it should turn red.

Wii has no power whatsoever going in


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.

WII DOES NOT TURN ON AT THE POWER BUTTON


remove the power cord from the wii. hold the power button in for 15 seconds.
plug the power back in. if the power light comes on check the color.
green is on, yellow is standby and red is totally off.

if there is a light press the power button and see if it turns on. if it does not then from a Wiimote, press and hold the power button on the remote. this should turn the console on. if the console does not turn on and the remote batteries are good you can try one more thing IF the light is on.

press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds on the system. disconnect power and replug. if you still cannot turn it on then your system is bricked or damaged and needs replacement.

in any case the power button is broken you can turn the console on and off from any remote

Chmy wii console or ACadaptor hve a problem,on console power button turns red but whenI press it to start it doesnt turn green but red light goes off what wrong with it?


Leave the wii unplugged overnight to remove any static electricity that might be interfering with the powering of the console.
If that does not work, try and follow nintendo's power troubleshooter: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/power.jsp#no_power

After pressing the red sync button on the console for about 10-15 seconds, and syncronizing the remote, the remote stars to work, but when I start a game the remote is no longer working. Then when I...


There are two ways to sync the Wii remote with the Wii console after pressing the red sync button like you did:

1) Press the "1" and "2" buttons on the Wii remote until the lights begin to flash. This method provides a temporary connection to the Wii.
2) Open the battery cover on the Wii remote and press the red button next to the batteries. This creates a permanent connection or "pair" between the Wii remote and the Wii console.
Based on your description, it sounds like you are using method #1. In order to power on the Wii when the Wii's red light is on (meaning the machine is turned off) and start playing games like you want, method #2 must be used.
Imagine method #1 as "guest mode". If a friend comes over with their Wii remote and wants to play a game, you would open up the game first, use method #1, and your friend would temporarily be connected to the Wii. Using method #1 is like "owner mode" that lets the Wii remote turn the console on and off and always stay connected to it.
Hope this helps!

Yellow light on wii


It's just the way the wii works. Hold the power button for about 5 seconds and the power button will go red and turn off instead of going yellow and going into standby mode.

My wii works but my controler dosent show up on the screen but the buttons work i need help


Usaully,
I don't know about the Wii but I know what happens with the light on the Wii

Green - The Wii Console is on

Yellow - You are connected to Wiiconnect24. It's harsh not to keep the "Yellow" light on because it could overheat the Wii Console. So if it's "Yellow", put your finger on the "Power" Button and keep it there for a long time. When you push it, it will start with Yellow then turn to Green then keep the finger there for a while then will turn to Red

Red - The Wii Console is off


Blue - You are connected to Wiiconnect24. When it turns Blue, It means you are getting a message from the Wii Console or on Standby Mode

The "on" light is always green, even if turned off. Why?


It occurs when your wii in the Standby, but WiiConnect24 is enabled with Standby Connection is enabled. the content can also be received when the Wii is left in standby mode.

WiiConnect24 can be turned on or off via the setup setting. While the console is in standby, the power LED indicates the current status of the standby connection,

  • Red indicating Standby - wiiConnect is off,
  • Yellow indicating Standby - Connect mode is on. If you hold the power button for 3-4 seconds, the Wii goes into standby mode with Standby Connect off. and WiiConnect24 will not operate until the console is turned on.

Yellow light


Yes this is perfectly normal, the colours are as follows with meaning: Red: Completely off, no wifi connectivity, Yellow/orange: Standby, Wifi connection on (enables you to receive messages) Green: On

If you want the console to completly turn off just hold down the power button for a few seconds rather than just pressing it.

Wii standby light


To be precise, you can turn this option off from the Wii System settings -> Wii Connect 24 -> standby connection -> off

When this setting is swiched to off, your console shuts down entirely and there is a RED light on the power button. There will be no need to turn off the console pressing the power button.
