Wii has solid red light, won't turn on, faint ticking noise


if it was dropped check the bluetooth module , they can come unplugged and the wii will not function. Children love to put change in the wii which can short it out. Never bridge a fuse as it can cause unsafe conditions and potentially a fire hazard .

Wii won't turn on.


Reset the AC adapter by following steps below.

1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the
Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).

2. After you've waited a full 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter back in on both ends and check to see if the power light comes on.

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 I shut down the Wii Console, the light changes only to yellow, only after I unplug the power cord and plug it back in does the red light come on.


It means you're in Standby mode (WiiConnect24 is on). When WiiConnect24 is on and you only briefly press POWER, it goes to yellow so you can still recieve WiiMail and other internet-related stuff while the Wii is off. If you HOLD it, though, it turns off for real. There's nothing wrong with this, so don't change anything.

I recommend only holding it as a last resort, like if it freezes.

When WiiConnect24 is off, though, it won't turn yellow, just red. KEEP WIICONNECT24 ON.

Hope this helps.

Wii power problem!


You are not getting the correct voltage into the Wii, this can happen one of three ways. (1) The power converter you have is not converting the power correctly, (2) running on converters are not exactly matching the correct voltage and wattage has strained your power supply and damaged the Wii, or (3) the power supply itself just failed as a result of any number of normal electrical conditions.

After not using my wii for about a month i went to play it the other day and it wouldn't turn on. The indicator light on the power button is off, not green, red, or orange. All the cords are connected, I...


Unplug it from the wall outlet (NOT from the Wii). Leave it unplugged for a good 5 to 10 minutes. The AC adapter needs to be reset (more on that below).

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 surprised Nintnedo didn't cover this in the owners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.

There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

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