My wii has been working fine for the past few weeks. But now it it won't even turn on! When I unplug then plug back in, the light is orange. But when I press the power button, it flashes yellow then turns off with no light. Any solutions?
Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, memory cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, hookup cables, the AC Adapter, and Sensor Bar) from the outlet and Wii.
Let the system rest for about 90 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that controller cords, AC Adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
After the 90 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. Check to see if the power light on the Power button comes on.

Wii red light going batty flashing like every 1/3rd of a second, and it will not turn on. I FIXED MINE BY UNPLUGGING EVERYTHNIG CARDS, CABLES, FROM EVERYWHERE, AND REMOVE SDCARDS ALSO, AND DISCS, BOTH GC & WII CARDS, SENSOR BAR PLUG, POWER Plug *ALL THAT'S PLUGGED OR INSERTED... Now i plugged everything back in ACCEPT Not Sensor PLUG To back of wii, then the light quit (This is after 4 min break all undone...) And then plugged the Sensor plug and THEN as i finally plugged in the POWER Plug I first held the SYNC red button on the Wii, and then plugged it in and WAH-LAH Isue Resolved Immediately, KUDOS for the hints Cheerz & Peace Love Banish Fear/ hate to not even give it thought in root thoughtfulness.!. www.fb.com/stanleydeanparker/
Try unplugging the Wii and plugging it back in. If that doesn't work and the Wii won't turn on, either it is defective or a minor hiccup in the event it turns back on in the near future. I would return it and get a replacement.
hi have you tried doing this 1 remove the mains lead from back of wii, and also unplug from mains leave both ends disconnected then leave it for at least 10 min then after this time plug both ends back in and give it a try, doing this resets the power brick and usually solves the problem.
let me know how you get on or if you still have the problem after trying this
make sure its not plugged into the wall socket and also the back of the wii you need to have both ends free so the power brick can reset itself ok
1. push the reset button and if that doesn't work unplug all cords and
memory cards (including sd) from wii and unplug av from the wii and the
outlet in wall. Wait 2-3 min or unplug the wii overnight and The trick i use was to literally smack the power supply
on the ground and plug it back in. It seemed to work for a few weeks, until you buy a new power cord Don't call Nintendo unless you've got some money. it'll be $82 bucks.
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!
When this same thing happened to me, I unplugged the Wii power supply from the wall (not just from the back of the Wii) and let it sit unplugged for about 10 minutes. When I plugged it back in, everything was fine.
