  • Check any accessories attached directly to the console to make sure that it is licensed and undamaged. Unlicensed or damaged accessories shouldn't be used with the console.
  • Try using a different wall outlet, or plug a different device into the outlet to make sure the outlet is providing power.
Perform an AC Adapter Reset. To perform an AC Adapter Reset follow these instructions: Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).
  1. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full two minutes.
  2. Unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).
  3. Check the AC Adapter for the following:
    • Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" are molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products 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 the AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be replaced, a replacement can be purchased from Nintendo's online store.
  4. After waiting two 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 the AC Adapter reset was successful.

Neither lighter outlet works on my 01 allero, just bought it used so don't know if and when they did work! Help..need to charge stuff!!

You have options there. First use a test light and probe the center terminal of the outlet. If it has power, check the ground on the socket. If no power, check the fuse. (if you have no diagram, probe all of them and replace any that don't have power at both ends with the key on, and replace any that are blown. the one you are looking for is usually 20 or 25 amp). Your other option is to create a new circuit. To do that, find an open fuse port that only has power with the key on. attach a wire (close to 14 gauge is best) to a spade connector and plug it into the fuse connection that has power. Run that wire to the connector at the rear of the accessory port (lighter housing center post). If you do that, make sure you install an accessory fuse holder in that wire that is rated at 25 amps. I use that method to install additional ports so you don't have to plug in one of those "octopus outlets" in a working power outlet. Only difference is that I also install a new lighter housing into the dash. That requires a new hole in the dash or console and a ground wire to the outside of the housing.

My ps3 turns on and goes of straight a way


You can have a internal component that is damaged or it is overheating. In either case I would recommend you contact Sony for repairs. Click here for Sony support

It is also possible that you have a bad power outlet in your house, or a power cord. If you can, try a different power outlet and power cord to see if this helps.

The ac adapter red light stays on and the counsole will not work

This problem occurs when the external power supply has detected a fault. The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either the console or to the power supply. The power supply will turn off if one of the following conditions is true:

• There is too much current.
• The voltage is too high.
• The temperature of the power supply is too high.

When any of these conditions are true, the light on the power supply turns red. Here are some steps that you can use to try to fix the problem.

Step 1: Make sure that the power supply is cool

The red light might indicate that the power supply is too hot or that it has overheated. Follow these steps if the power supply light is red:

1. Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned off.
2. Disconnect your Xbox 360 Power Supply from your Xbox 360 console and from the wall outlet.
3. Let the power supply cool for two hours in a well-ventilated space. Do not connect the Xbox 360 power supply to the console or to the wall outlet during this time.
4. After the power supply has cooled for two hours, reconnect the Xbox 360 Power Supply to the console and to the wall outlet.
If cooling the power supply does not resolve the problem or if the problem persists, use the steps in the next section.

Step 2: Make sure that the power supply is plugged in correctly

Make sure that the power supply is directly plugged into a working wall outlet. You may have problems with the power supply if you use an extension cord or a power strip if the extension cord or the power strip is faulty or cannot supply the required power to the console.

If the power supply is still not working as expected, use the steps in the next section.

Step 3: Plug the power supply into a different wall outlet

To eliminate the possibility that the wall outlet you are using is faulty or that there is a blown fuse, plug the power cord into a different wall outlet in a different area of your place of residence.

If this does not resolve the problem, use the steps in the next section.

Step 4: Try another Xbox 360 Power Cord and Xbox 360 Power Supply

If you have a different Xbox 360 Power Cord and Xbox 360 Power Supply, try to use them to test the console. If the console turns on when you use a different power cord and power supply, you need to replace the faulty power cord and power supply. If the console does not turn on, the issue may be with the console itself.

If this does not resolve the problem, use the steps in the next section.

Step 5: Obtain a replacement Xbox 360 Power Supply

If the steps in this article did not resolve the issue and the Xbox 360 Power Supply light continues illuminate red, you need to obtain a replacement power supply.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My wife and I just moved into our house and cannot get anything on the dishwasher to activate. We have checked fuses, lightswitches that might be wired to DW power -- nothing has worked. Is there a...

Sounds like a power supply issue. Take off the lower panels below the door and look to the right side of the opening, you will see a little square steel cover. This cover is where your power comes into the dishwasher. Follow the line coming into the dishwasher, it will either be a power cord that leads to an outlet, or a regular power line coming in. IF it leads to an outlet, try plugging something into the outlet. If the outlet is under the sink, try switching the plug from the top outlet to the bottom one (or vice~versa). Sometimes the outlets under sinks are set up so that a garbage disposer can be plugged into one of the outlets that is controlled by a wall switch.
If you get no power to the outlet, and all of your breakers are on, look for a GFI outlet that may have been tripped. These outlets have the little "test" and "reset" buttons on them and often are wired in parallel so that multiple outlets are powered (and protected) by one GFI.
Lastly if you have determined that there is power to the outlet, remove the cover under the dishwasher and inspect the wire connections. I have found many machines that had poor connections causing the wire nuts to burn right off the cord connections.
Now if everything else checks out power wise, you may have a blown fuse located on the control board housing inside the console of the machine. Get the part before you disassemble the door. To access it you will have to remove all the screws around the inner door liner and separate the two halves of the door. The control board is in the top right corner of the door and is usually under a plastic cover. The fuse is a small white thing that clips to the control board housing.
Good luck! Hope this helps you out!

Power will not come on at all a cable guy came to my house turned cable off to reset it my power went out and some sparks came out of some outlets next day my son went to play wii it would not come on....

1. Try plugging something else into the socket to ensure the socket itself is working.
2. Changing the fuse in your Wii power adapter, blown fuses are very common and this could be it.
3. If number 2 doesn't work try and get a hold of a replacement power adapter as the problem could be a break in the wire.You can get a new adapter at this site NDSL games console, ds games console, NDSL games console_Video games
