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.

My wii stopped working from a power outage and it doesnt usally do that.


It just means the flow of power to your Wii was interrupted for a period of time long enough to cause it to have no power to run. It's not a big deal and a good bet would be to purchase a surge protector and plug your Wii into that if power outages are common for you.

Wii won't turn on after a power outage.


Hey, recently had a power outage and now your Wii won't turn on?

Well unless your Wii is completely fried from the storm then this should work (It has for me every time I have had an outage).

After you find out it's not getting power then just unplug the power cable from the wall and from the Wii. Normally I unplug it for about 12-24 hours then you go plug it back into the wall, plug it back into the Wii, look at the power button and if it is red/orange then it has been fixed and you should never have a problem with it again unless you keep it plugged in during a thunderstorm/power outage!


This has happened to me about 8 times and this method worked every single time!

Wii stopped working . We played it before bed one night and the next morning there was no light on the system and it would not turn on. We have unplugged everything and plugged it all back in...still...


This probably didn't happen, but my guess is that, when the sudden power was restored, the Wii console took too much and fried the circuts. This can happen on on computers, but I'm not sure about gaming consoles. This can be prevented with a surge protector, a device with several power outlets and a switch for power protection. If the warranty on your Wii is still present (I think it lasts 1-4 years) you can send it in to Nintendo for repairs (or if they can't repair it, they'll send you a brand new one).

After a power outage, my wii will not turn on


You can try a new AC adapter.If that does not work,it will need to be repaired by a Nintendo authorized center.(I used to work at one).If you do by a new one PLEASE buy Nintendo brand.The "off" brands usually end up in some kind of problem down the road.
Good luck and agme on!

Power outage this am. Wii won't even turn on


Usually, after a power outage, a power spike (when the power returns) can disable/blow the fuse in the AC adapter for the Wii.

Try the following steps in this order:

FIRST:
- unplug the Wii's power cord from the wall, and leave it unplugged (from 5 mins. to 5 hours). Then, plug it back into the wall. (Unplugging the power cord from the back of the Wii will not help. You need to unplug the power cord from the wall.)
- This usually helps reset the fuse circuit in the AC adapter, and your Wii should work again.

SECOND:
- open the panel on the AC adapter box in the power cord; since the screws are proprietary, you will need to creatively use existing tools to turn the screws
- check the 3A fuse in that box; if it looks blown, then replace it

THIRD:
- it might be cheaper to replace the AC adapter with another one

FOURTH:
- get the unit repaired

MUST DO:
- buy a SURGE PROTECTOR power bar, and plug all of your expensive items into it (to prevent this from happening again).

Hope that helps!

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.

Have you recently had any power surges or outages? If so unplug the Wii and it will reset itself.
