Try using a different wall outlet, or plug a different device into the outlet to make sure the outlet is providing power.
Perform an AC Adapter Reset. (How To)

Situation Not Resolved:

If the system still won't power on, the system and AC adapter will need to be repaired. To start the repair process, click here.

Yellow light on wii

It's just the way the wii works. Hold the power button for about 5 seconds and the power button will go red and turn off instead of going yellow and going into standby mode.

The "on" light is always green, even if turned off. Why?

It occurs when your wii in the Standby, but WiiConnect24 is enabled with Standby Connection is enabled. the content can also be received when the Wii is left in standby mode.

WiiConnect24 can be turned on or off via the setup setting. While the console is in standby, the power LED indicates the current status of the standby connection,

  • Red indicating Standby - wiiConnect is off,
  • Yellow indicating Standby - Connect mode is on. If you hold the power button for 3-4 seconds, the Wii goes into standby mode with Standby Connect off. and WiiConnect24 will not operate until the console is turned on.

The green indicator does not light up.

Try to put it in a cooler room, or set it so that the aerator isnt blocked, and blow off some dust if its on the aerator and on the Wii itself. Hope its solved now!

The power indicator light on the console stays yellow - even when the console is shut off.

Normal after setting up a wi-fi connection. Just lets you know wii connect 24 is on so you can get updates and messages automatically. Let me know if you have any other questions, I can answer anything about the Wii.

Problems With Nintendo Wii Control

Mine does this from time to time. Hold the power button on the front of the Wii for about ten seconds. The light will turn red indicating it's powered off. Press the button again to turn on and then try the remote.

When new batteries have been put in both controllers of the wii, indicator lights supposed to indecate power level of batteries instead of which all blue lights flash then stop and nothing happens, no...

If all the lights are coming on then going off again the controller needs to be synched with the wii. Once it is synchronized after all the indicator lights flash one should stay on indicating which player you are (1 -4)
To synch a controller to the wii:
Make sure the wii is in
Open the battery cover on the wiimote
Open the front panel of the wii
Press the synch button on the console
Press the red synch button on the wii mote
Should work for you.
