The wii console will not turn on. I checked the electrical outlet and it still works. I plugged and unplugged it and no change. There is no disk in the console at this time. Is there an inner battery or something?

There is an inner batter on the side of the console.

Try to unplug the system from both connections (wall and system ) let it sit for about 5min or so. This should give it time to discharge any charge currently in the block. Plug it into the wall first then the system and try turning it on again. Other than that you may need a new AC power adapter. If both of those aren't it send it in to nintendo.

My wii won't turn on

Wii Console Won't Turn On, and Has No Power Light Situation:
  • The Wii console won't power on, and the Power LED is unlit
  • The console powers on, but shuts off after a few seconds/minutes
  • Attaching an accessory to the console turns the power off

This issue can be caused by an accessory or power surge tripping the circuit breaker on the AC Adapter.

What To Do:
  • Check any accessories attached directly to the console to make sure that it is licensed and undamaged. Unlicensed or damaged accessories shouldn't be used with the console.

  • 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)

What's your problem? the wii wont turn on

    • 1 Disconnect any accessories, such as GameCube controllers or SD cards.
    • 2 Unplug your Nintendo Wii AC adapter from the wall outlet and from the back of your Nintendo Wii. Leave the adapter disconnected for two minutes. Reconnect the adapter to the console and plug the outlet end straight into a wall outlet, not a surge protector.
    • 3 Remove the AC adapter from the wall outlet again. If the Wii has yet to turn on, the problem may lie within your electrical outlet. Plug a lamp, nightlight or something electrical into the outlet the AC adapter was connected to. If the outlet appears to work, then you'll have to test the AC adapter itself.
    • 4 Run your fingers along the AC adapter cable and visually look for any damage, such as frayed wires or a cracked piece of cable. Also look for the model number "RVL-002" and "Wii" on the adapter. If you don't see the "RVL-002" model number and "Wii" on the adapter, then you are using an unlicensed adapter, which can cause instability and power failure. If the adapter has incurred any damage, you will likely have to buy a new adapter.
    • 5 Spray air to clean out the vents on the back of the Nintendo Wii. If your Wii has been sitting for a long time, then dust and dirt may have built up around the vents, preventing the console from cooling itself. If the console cannot cool itself, it overheats and shuts down.
    • 6 Click "Start," "Internet Explorer" and visit the Nintendo repair page (see Resources) to open a repair claim. If you tried the above steps and your Wii has yet to power on, your system probably needs professional repair.

After working just two days ago. The console will not power on. It has not been moved. We have unpluged everything,no luck.


Start simple. If there's no power to your Wii, check that the AC adaptor is firmly connected both to the game console and a live electrical outlet. If you still have no power, or the power LED light goes off in midgame or flickers, try rebooting the system. Turn everything off, unplug the AC adaptor from the electrical outlet, wait at least 60 seconds and then plug in again and turn the system on.

If this does not help you may need a new power supply.Also try cleaning the wii.Use a can of ampressed air to blow out any dirt or dust from unit.Pay attention to fan area.Be sure fan spins free.

First, Check your wii adaptor, In normal conditions the wii adapter provides the output 12volt. You can test the output using multimeter or a 12volt lamp.

We can't get our wii to turn on. Our electricity went out this morning for just a second, but the wii was not on. But, now it won't come on at all.

Try a diffrent outlet or check your Breaker box and see if the breaker got fliped.

If that dosn't work make sure all the wires in the back of the console are plugged into a working electric socket on the wall. If it's still not working, contact Nintendo Hardware Issues Department and they'll be sure to send you a new one (although it may take up to a couple weeks).

First I would try plugging in the Wii at another outlet. If that doesn't work I would try borrowing a friend's power cable for the Wii that is known to work (or buy a replacement) and see if that fixes it. If not, hope that you still have a warranty on it or you are out of luck.
