    I've had the same problem with mine. Sometimes I switch outlets and it'll work for a while. But if I try to power "on" right away after plugging it'll shut off again. sometimes I'll plug it in and if the red light is on, I'll let it sit overnight. In the morning it'll work for a while then shut off.

    My Nintendo Wii Console just won't turn on.... The light on the power button doesn't even turn on when I plug it in. I've tried other outlets thinking maybe the outlet is bad but that doesn't seem to be the issue. Can anyone help.

Try using a new outlet thing adn it might work BUT!!!! i have never tryed it yet. i'm sure it will work because the main cause is the power outlet. so buy a new one.

I've had the same problem twice, each time unplug all connentions including ac, i believe problem is with the 12 volt external supply. wait a minute plug in dc connection then plug in ac at wall outlet. if that works reconnect i/o cables. seems to be a wii weak point

My wii was fine last time I played but now it wont turn on tried unplugging and plugging it back up but didnt help

Hi there, you could try the following:
  1. Try unplugging Wii from the power for a full 2 minutes, plug back in and power up and test (This resets the Power Adapter).
  2. If this does not resolve it then it may need to be repaired so contact Nintendo here.
Please see here for for information on Power issues with the Wii.

My wii wont turn on, its plugged in and nothings happining

Mine did this and you have to unplug everything out of the back of the wii and also unplug the cord from the outlet for a few mins then plug it all back up and mine came back on it was from a power surge and it trips the circuits u have to completely unplug everything for it to reconnect the connectors.
