You may have short circuited the wii if you didn't have it on a power strip with surge protection. If you did however have it plugged into one then disconnect and plug back in all cables and try to start it. If that fails contact Nintendo customer support.

After a power outage, my wii will not turn on


You can try a new AC adapter.If that does not work,it will need to be repaired by a Nintendo authorized center.(I used to work at one).If you do by a new one PLEASE buy Nintendo brand.The "off" brands usually end up in some kind of problem down the road.
Good luck and agme on!

I had a power outage in my neighborhood the other day and ever since then my wii isnt turning on. what my be the problem?


Whenever I have a really bad thunderstorm that ends up in a power outage my wii does the exact same thing...

I don't know what the cause is but what you should do is just unplug it for about 12 hours (about how long i leave it unplugged everytime), plug it back in and if it is the same problem as I have it should work fine (until another power outage...)

BUT if it still doesnt power up leave it unplugged for another 6 hours, after that if it still wont turn on id call nintendo and find out what the problem is...

Power outage this am. Wii won't even turn on


Usually, after a power outage, a power spike (when the power returns) can disable/blow the fuse in the AC adapter for the Wii.

Try the following steps in this order:

FIRST:
- unplug the Wii's power cord from the wall, and leave it unplugged (from 5 mins. to 5 hours). Then, plug it back into the wall. (Unplugging the power cord from the back of the Wii will not help. You need to unplug the power cord from the wall.)
- This usually helps reset the fuse circuit in the AC adapter, and your Wii should work again.

SECOND:
- open the panel on the AC adapter box in the power cord; since the screws are proprietary, you will need to creatively use existing tools to turn the screws
- check the 3A fuse in that box; if it looks blown, then replace it

THIRD:
- it might be cheaper to replace the AC adapter with another one

FOURTH:
- get the unit repaired

MUST DO:
- buy a SURGE PROTECTOR power bar, and plug all of your expensive items into it (to prevent this from happening again).

Hope that helps!

Power Outage & Now Wii Won't Power Up...


When this same thing happened to me, I unplugged the Wii power supply from the wall (not just from the back of the Wii) and let it sit unplugged for about 10 minutes. When I plugged it back in, everything was fine.

Won't turn on


Best suggestion I can tell you is try unplugging your Wii for 2 minutes. Then plug it back in, and try again. I know it sounds weird, but I've done it for a few things after power outages/surges.
If that doesn't work, contact Nintendo.
