Re: 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.

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 power bar orange light is on but the console won't turn on

The power bar light is supposed to be green, not orange. If it's orange than that means the power supply has gone bad. SOrry :(

My wii is not working

If it's orange that means it is turned off. It turns green when you turn it on. Insert a disc, press the power button or hit eject.
