I THINK I JUST FRIED MY WII THERE WAS A POP NOISE AFTER A POWER SURGE IS THERE ANY WAY THAT i CVAN CHANGE THE FUSE OR IS MY WII FRIED FOREVER?


i have had some experience in taken apart a wii before to modify the case and i never noticed a fuse inside i know some systems (not sure if hte wii does) have a built in surge protection and to reset it you must unplug it from the wall for some time and then plug it back in. But i do fear you may have "fried" your wii.

Wii wont turn on, nothing had a lightning storm last night and now nothing


Try replacing the power cable, many times when there is a power surge and you do not have a surge protector it will burn out the transformer on the power cord. If you replace it and still nothing, most likely your Wii has been burned out by a power surge.

We had a storm and now the wii will not even turn on.


Was the Wii running while the storm was going on? Was it a lightning storm? If the answer is yes to eaither one of these then most likely there was a power surge and the power supply and / or motherboard has been damaged

No power


Well no because i just had a terrible storm too and my WII went off when i was playing it too so it all depends how long you have had your WII and if so if someone messed with the console.

Wii has no power after storm


There is a surge protection built in. Unplug it for 5 minutes then plug it back in, It should work.

Storm last night, now Wii won't power up


Unplug everything! There is a "breaker" in the power supply and it may need to be reset. Just unplug all cables from the TV and outlets. Let it sit for a couple hours then plug everything back in and it should work fine. If not then the power supply has shorted out due to a strong power surge. You can claim it under your home owners insurance or call Nintendo and try to get it replaced. Thanks! Good luck and happy gaming!!

Unplug the power adapter at both ends (at the console and especially at the power outlet). Give the capacitors at least a minute to completely dissipate residual energy. Then, hook it back up and it should be good to go.

I would give credit to someone else for this super simple solution. But, it's all over the internet.

Salutations Bloopdinkle,

Do you know if your Wii is connected to a surge protector? You can get power surges at many times especially when the power goes out, or even comes back during a storm.

If you do have a surge protector connected you may want to see if your fuse needs to be reset. If not I don't think that the Wii's manufacture's would cover surge damage.

Sorry I didn't have happier news.
