Try resetting the AC adapter.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Reset the AC adapter by following steps below.

1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the
Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).

2. After you've waited a full 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter back in on both ends and check to see if the power light comes on.

My wii turned on lastnight but the controlers wouldnt work so we called a friend that knows lot about these things he came over and the wii wouldnt turn on at all not even by the button on the wii...i dont...


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.

My wii will not turn on. Even when we plug it in the light will not turn on... We have tried different plugs... the last time it was used was about 2 weeks ago and it was working fine than... it has not...


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

please rate this solution, thanks

Wii is dead


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.

Wii will not power on


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!

Power Outage & Now Wii Won't Power Up...


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.

There was a power surge which caused my WII to not power on anymore.
Unplugging the power adaptor fromt he wall for 5 minutes and then plugging it back in
fixed the problem.
