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.
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.
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.
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!
