Odds are there was a power grid surge (especially given the fact that your son's is dead as well. Typically replacing the Ac adapter (power cord) will fix the problem, the ac adapter is designed to take the blow in the event of a power surge.

The Wii console will not turn on. What could be the problem? I have tried plugging into diff outlets and nothing.


Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surpised Nintnedo didn't cover this in theowners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is apower surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked upto asurge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appearsdead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If therewas a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter2_bing.gif,not the Wii itself.

There is no need to buy a new one or a AC adapter. Resetting it should work. There is a circuit inside the AC adapterthat needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surgeprotector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at theoutlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it fromthe wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuittime to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

You need to unplug the AC adapter from the wall outlet for 5 or 10 minutes (NOT from the Wii, you have to unplug it from the wall outlet). Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.
