Disconnect any accessories, such as GameCube controllers or SD cards.
Unplug your Nintendo Wii AC
adapter from the wall outlet and from the back of your Nintendo Wii.
Leave the adapter disconnected for two minutes. Reconnect the adapter to
the console and plug the outlet end straight into a wall outlet, not a
Remove the AC adapter from the
wall outlet again. If the Wii has yet to turn on, the problem may lie
within your electrical outlet. Plug a lamp, nightlight or something
electrical into the outlet the AC adapter was connected to. If the
outlet appears to work, then you'll have to test the AC adapter itself.
Run your fingers along the AC
adapter cable and visually look for any damage, such as frayed wires or a
cracked piece of cable. Also look for the model number "RVL-002" and
"Wii" on the adapter. If you don't see the "RVL-002" model number and
"Wii" on the adapter, then you are using an unlicensed adapter, which
can cause instability and power failure. If the adapter has incurred any
damage, you will likely have to buy a new adapter.
Spray air to clean out the vents
on the back of the Nintendo Wii. If your Wii has been sitting for a
long time, then dust and dirt may have built up around the vents,
preventing the console from cooling itself. If the console cannot cool
itself, it overheats and shuts down.
Click "Start," "Internet
Explorer" and visit the Nintendo repair page (see Resources) to open a
repair claim. If you tried the above steps and your Wii has yet to power
on, your system probably needs professional repair.
hello, One of two common possible problems. Either 1) Your AC adapter needs to be reset or 2) Your AC Adapter is bad.
Most power issues with the Wii can be fixed by resetting the AC adapter. You can easily reset the AC adapter by following these steps: Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).
The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
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. If the power light comes on and stays on, then it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked.
Try to find someone with a Wii.. not that hard everyone has one. See if they will let you use the power cord. test the cord and if that doesn't you know its inside the Wii. Then, their are fuses inside the console one of them my have blown.You need a special screw driver. Hope this will help..
is a common problem with the Wii. Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii. It happens
almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.
if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back
on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators
won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went
out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.
You need to reset the AC adapter to get the Wii to work again. There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset.
Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug
it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to
Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet,
and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the
AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the
adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front
should be lit up.
Yes other people do have this issue also. Usually just the power adapter is broken. Usually you can fix the power adapter by "resetting it". This involves unplugging both ends and leaving it unplugged for 2 mins. If that still doesnt work you can call nintendo @ 1-800-255-3700.
