Re: orange light on wii

That just means it's in sleep mode and can still perform updates. There's no problem at all.

What happens if the power button to the Wii turns orange for a while and sometimes, when it does that, the disc inputter flashes blue? It only goes back to normal when I unplug it for a while then plug it...

The blue light means you got a message from another user or nintendo has an update for you. The orange power light means your wii is on standby and the red light means your wii is completely powered off.

When wii is off the light is orange, not red

When your Wii is off and the light is orange, that means WiiConnect24 is on (you are connected to the internet)
If the light is red, that means Wii Connect24 is off (you are not connected)

When i turn my wii console off, instead of a red stand by light a orange light appears.

Orange light means Wii is still connected to the internet and is ready to download any updates from the net even if the machine is turned off.
This option is called Wiiconnect24 and you can disable it from system settings if you don't want it to be connected, then the light will turn red when you switch it off.
I think it's a good idea to leave it on myself so it doesn't make you wait while it installs updates next time you turn it on.

The light went of and i cant get the wii to turn

I was just wondering the same thing. I found something that said unplug it from the wall, remove the plugs from the wii, and let it sit for 2 minutes. Then plug it back in (to the wall, not a surge protector). It worked on mine.

Should i have a red or orange light when the wwii is turned off ?

When the Nintendo Wii Game System is turned off but is still plugged in, there should be a RED light next to the power button.

When you turn the Wii on, and the light goes from red or orange to green, press A a few times (this would be to get through the warning/safety screen) then wait a minute. Then when you wave your remote about, you will feel it vibrating as it goes over the channel icons on the wii menu screen. Plus a blue light will be lit at the bottom of the remote to denote player 1.

If all of this happens, it is just a lead or TV input issue. If these things do NOT happen, the Wii is broke and needs fixing by Nintendo!

Orange light

That means your Wii is in standby mode, not off. It's still connected to Wiiconnect24. When the light is red the Wii is off.
