Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Wii conflicts - PLEASE HELP!!!

There's something wrong with my wii, so i'll do the best to explain it. All the auxilary cords are correctly plugged in, however, there is no sound or image on the screen (and yes i'm on the correct imput). The wii is able to turn on from the remote, but the remote itself will not stay on (the batteries are full and i've tried syncing many times). Also, the only image i get is a small flash on the TV when the console turns on

if anyone can help that'd be great cuz i just got Brawl and want to play it.

    Have the same problem, have you figured out how to fix it? Mine still is not working and Nintendo wanted me to check the cables, hah! They are still working. Had a buddy bring his over and tried with his cables. My console still does not work! POS!!

How can i connect my wii to tv

I have an X-Box, and it comes with an HDMI and A/V jack for plugging in those type of cords. The instructions for the wii should clearly explain what cord to use.

Hello my name is greg and we were having trouble with our electricity and we shut off the wrong sircut breaker and now our WII doesnt turn on but we are unsure if it is the power cord

The best way is checking the power cord with voltmeter or some unit like charger for mobile phone (plug it and look the phone charging).If the power cord is OK plug the Wii AC adapter.If Wii not turn on check the AC adapter with voltmeter.If working the problem is in your Wii console and it need repairing.If AC adapter not work just buy new.

Wii wont turn on at all. checked all cords. everything is plugged in.

Follow these steps.
  1. Make sure you have power.
  2. If that doesn't work, plug your Wii into another plug.
  3. Smell it. If you smell something bad(you should know that smell. It ain't that pretty, eh?)
If YOUR WII smells bad or won't work CALL NINTENDO.


Did you have any power issues recently in your area?If so, there might be a problem with the surge protector in your AC adapter.Unplug it from the Wii and the wall. Also, seperate both halves of it. Let it sit for 30 minutes to an hour. Plug it back in, making sure all connections are correct and strong (plugged in all the way). Then, try to turn your Wii on. If that doesn't fix your problem, try again on a different outlet.If you cannot solve this issue, contact Nintendo for more help from an NOA representitive. Try calling nintendo's support hotline, toll free:

Or using their online support:

Online support may not have the answer to what you need, in which case it will lead you to a webform E-Mail service to get personal help.

No power for the wii

Does the outlet you have your console plugged into receiving power? You could check this by plugging in a lamp or something to check for power. If it is getting power, it could be your power cord. If a power cord for the Wii is rolled up too tightly, too many times, the wires inside the cord will come loose and come apart. That may be what happened. Before sending it in or getting a new Wii, you should try borrowing someone's Wii power cord to see if it just the power cord. If it still does not work, you can try calling the Nintendo Help & Support. You can find the number by going to and clicking on the Help (or Support) link and finding a phone number.

Plugged US purchased Wii into Europe outlet with an adapter and n

You would need an adapter that not only runs at 120 or 240 volts, but also one that OUTPUTS 120v. The Wii may have some kind of protection in it if you're lucky (most people don't hook up US Wii's to 240v). But if not, you've killed your Wii. Check the adapter, if it has a fuse that's removable you should see a (usually) circular cap kind of thing on the brick you can unscrew and pull the fuse out.
As for what you would need to purchase, it would be something like this: would work perfectly. The Wii only draws at maximum 30watts and this unit does 100. Your TV on the other hand would need a higher wattage unit.

I've had this same problem. Remove the batteries from the remotes. Then disconnct the power cord from the back of the Wii and disconnect the power cord from the wall. Let it sit for 5 min. Double check that the sensor bar is plugged into the Wii and check the cord for any breaks that might stop the signal. After you are sure that the sensor bar is connected and the 5 min. have gone by plug it all back in, install your batteries and re-sync it.
