Question about Nintendo Wii Console
You may try to 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. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
3. While you're waiting, unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, memory cards, hookup cables, and Sensor Bar). Remove all of these from the outlet and the Wii.
4. Also check to see that controller cords, AC adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed and do not have exposed wires. If you find any frayed cords or exposed wires, you should replace those parts.
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. Check to see if the power light comes on.
If the steps above didn't work, I suggest you go at http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/wii_repair_home.jsp?problem=PWRNOPOWER and send the unit and power adapter for repair.

The power outage might have been caused by a power surge, in which case one of the wii's fuses might have blown out, or the fuse in the power cord (if you are in some countries that have fuses in the power cords) might have burned out. to fix this open up the wii and search for fuses, take a volt meter, and put the two wires on either side of the fuse (there should be a metal cap there), if you get an electrical current through the fuse then it is good, if there is no current, then take the fuse out, and look for numbers on it, copy the number of volts and watts, then buya new fuse that matches the old one and put it into the system. (Thepower outage might have been caused by something else though, or there could be something else wrong, so dont hate me if this solution does not help.
