Question about Nintendo Wii Console
Wii shuts down immediately after power up. When plugged in, red LED glows but then it shuts off when I push the power switch. Don't be afraid to get technical, I'm an electrical engineer and I'm currently troubleshooting the mainboard with my oscilloscope. I'd love to have a schematic.

I solved the problem on my end by removing the gamecube controllers that were plugged in. They were an aftermarket brand with the superheroes printed on them. This is the second set that I have purchased that have gone bad.
Thanks for the suggestions.

I had the same problem but i just solved mine a few minutes ago.
my wii kept shutting off cause 1 of my gamecube controllers wires were damaged.
so check if any remotes ac adapter or any other caples have damaged wires or something.
for more information. hope this helps. :)

I had to send mine into Nintendo...it is the fan, it broke. They fixed it because it was less then 1 year old. I'm guessing this may be a problem with their systems because now I'm seeing you can buy fans to help keep your Wii cool...oh no! I hope it does not happen again! They say to keep your console away from products that would keep it hot & mine definately is. So call Wii that is my best solution for each of you do it right away. Send it to get it fixed, they did it in about a week. I was happy with their response.
