If the adapter was plugged into the Wii at the time, then you need a new Wii. If it wasn't, then that electricity is a lot stronger than it should be, so RUN!

What's your problem? the wii wont turn on


    • 1 Disconnect any accessories, such as GameCube controllers or SD cards.
    • 2 Unplug your Nintendo Wii AC adapter from the wall outlet and from the back of your Nintendo Wii. Leave the adapter disconnected for two minutes. Reconnect the adapter to the console and plug the outlet end straight into a wall outlet, not a surge protector.
    • 3 Remove the AC adapter from the wall outlet again. If the Wii has yet to turn on, the problem may lie within your electrical outlet. Plug a lamp, nightlight or something electrical into the outlet the AC adapter was connected to. If the outlet appears to work, then you'll have to test the AC adapter itself.
    • 4 Run your fingers along the AC adapter cable and visually look for any damage, such as frayed wires or a cracked piece of cable. Also look for the model number "RVL-002" and "Wii" on the adapter. If you don't see the "RVL-002" model number and "Wii" on the adapter, then you are using an unlicensed adapter, which can cause instability and power failure. If the adapter has incurred any damage, you will likely have to buy a new adapter.
    • 5 Spray air to clean out the vents on the back of the Nintendo Wii. If your Wii has been sitting for a long time, then dust and dirt may have built up around the vents, preventing the console from cooling itself. If the console cannot cool itself, it overheats and shuts down.
    • 6 Click "Start," "Internet Explorer" and visit the Nintendo repair page (see Resources) to open a repair claim. If you tried the above steps and your Wii has yet to power on, your system probably needs professional repair.

My Adapter was plugged into a stronger voltage and it made a crackling noise and a buring smell, does that mean its broken now? if so what should i do?


Hi there,

It sounds like something may have caught on fire inside your Wii. If it's still covered under warranty you might be able to call up Nintendo and convince them your system was purchased defective. Then you just send in your Wii and get a new one.

My wii is not working, we turned it off one day and it did not turn back on when we went to play it. Now the light won't come on and everything is pluged in.


No Power
    Most power issues with the Wii can be fixed by resetting the AC adapter. You can easily reset the AC adapter by following these steps:

      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. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.

      3. We also recommend you unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).

      4. While you're waiting, check the AC Adapter for the following:
        • Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensedproducts are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
        • Check the AC Adapter for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. If your AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be replaced, you can purchase one from Nintendo's online store.

      5. After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked.

Sir, toshiba laptop doesnt startup,even no msgs comeup no cmos msgs also..after switch on..need help,,thx,bye


What is the status of the light on the adapter? That would be the first thing I would check. It may be possible that your battery ran out and due to bad adapter its neither charging nor powering on from the outlet. If the adapter is working fine, then let me know and we will look at the other possibilities

Sai.

Our wii is pluged in and will not even turn on. The light on the front is not even on.


Try different outlets in the house to see if its just one bad outlet.

Also if you get to a know good working outlet plug in the AC Adapter and see if you get the light to come on the adapter. If you do then you know the outlet is good.

If you don't get a the light to come on the AC Adapter, then you know that the AC Adapter is bad and would need to get another one.

If the AC Adapter is good then you know its a problem with the main board inside of the Wii and that would need to be replaced.

Hello my name is greg and we were having trouble with our electricity and we shut off the wrong sircut breaker and now our WII doesnt turn on but we are unsure if it is the power cord


The best way is checking the power cord with voltmeter or some unit like charger for mobile phone (plug it and look the phone charging).If the power cord is OK plug the Wii AC adapter.If Wii not turn on check the AC adapter with voltmeter.If working the problem is in your Wii console and it need repairing.If AC adapter not work just buy new.

Wii got pluged to a 220 volt outlet


I'm going to go ahead and say it probably fried the Wii. I would maybe try getting a new adapter either way if it's at reasonable cost and see if it works again though.

My tablet is not pluging in


Toshiba computers have a label on the bottom that displays the exact voltage and minimum amperage required to power the computer ("DC15V 3.0A", for example, which means 15 volts DC (direct current), at 3.0 amps. Each Toshiba AC adapter has a label indicating its output voltage and amperage capacity (for example, "DC15V 3.0A"). Important considerations for using AC adapters with portable computers:
The connectors must be compatible -- they must mate together correctly.
The voltage level must match exactly (a computer designed to run from 15 volts can be powered only by an adapter rated to produce 15 volts). If the AC adapter's voltage is higher than the computer's requirement, the computer and the battery may be damaged, If the AC adapter's voltage is lower, the computer may not operate correctly, or not operate at all.
The AC adapter must supply at least enough amperage (current) to meet the computer's amperage requirement. Otherwise, the computer may not run properly, the battery may not charge correctly, or may charge very slowly.
The quality of the power (ripple, noise and other factors) provided by the AC adapter must be very high. AC adapters from other manufacturers may supply sufficient amperage at the correct voltage level but the quality of the power may be poor, which can cause the computer to operate erratically, and could even cause damage to the computer. Whenever possible, use the correct Toshiba AC adapter for your computer.
The computer's power light may blink to indicate that there's a problem with the power from the AC adapter.
