It's just the way the wii works. Hold the power button for about 5 seconds and the power button will go red and turn off instead of going yellow and going into standby mode.

My power light turns yellow instead of red i have to hold thepower botten to make it red


With the Wii system, when you hit the power button, it goes into Standby mode. That is the yellow light. In standby mode, the system draws a little bit of power, and it will go into a ready to play state faster than when Off. Holding the power button FULLY powers off the Wii system, and that will give you the red light. Hope this helps!

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.

My wii works but my controler dosent show up on the screen but the buttons work i need help


Usaully,
I don't know about the Wii but I know what happens with the light on the Wii

Green - The Wii Console is on

Yellow - You are connected to Wiiconnect24. It's harsh not to keep the "Yellow" light on because it could overheat the Wii Console. So if it's "Yellow", put your finger on the "Power" Button and keep it there for a long time. When you push it, it will start with Yellow then turn to Green then keep the finger there for a while then will turn to Red

Red - The Wii Console is off


Blue - You are connected to Wiiconnect24. When it turns Blue, It means you are getting a message from the Wii Console or on Standby Mode

The "on" light is always green, even if turned off. Why?


It occurs when your wii in the Standby, but WiiConnect24 is enabled with Standby Connection is enabled. the content can also be received when the Wii is left in standby mode.

WiiConnect24 can be turned on or off via the setup setting. While the console is in standby, the power LED indicates the current status of the standby connection,

  • Red indicating Standby - wiiConnect is off,
  • Yellow indicating Standby - Connect mode is on. If you hold the power button for 3-4 seconds, the Wii goes into standby mode with Standby Connect off. and WiiConnect24 will not operate until the console is turned on.

When console is turned off the light is glows yellow instead of red.


Yellow just means that it's on standby. If there's a new message or there's an update, your Wii will start blinking blue.

If you want to turn it completely off, just go to the Wii menu, Click the Wii icon (Options), then click Wii settings, click the right arrow to get to Wii System Settings 2, then click on Wii Connect 24, then click on Standby Connection, then click off.

Don't worry about the heat. It's normal when you have it on standby.

I just put the internet on my wii and now when i turn my wii off the light is yellow, not red, and the area where you put the disc in keeps blinking blue.


This is because you have wiiconnect24 turned on. wiiconnect24 keeps your wii in a standby mode so that you can receive messages when you are not playing the wii. When the disc tray is blinking blue this means you have a new message. If you want to turn wiiconnect24 off go into the wii settings menu then wiiconnect24. If you just want to turn the wii off fully then when you want to turn the wii off hold the power button on the wii down until it turns red.

My nintendo wii power light is yellow


The wii power light is yellow because you have wiiconnect24 turned on in the wii system options. Wiiconnect24 constantly keeps your wii connected to the internet by staying in a low power mode, if you receive any messages while int his mode the disk opening will flash blue. If you don't want this option just go into the wii systems settings and turn it off. If you wish to have it but want to turn it fully off just hold the power button on the main console until the power light turns red.

The light on my Wii is red when the console is off.


The red light indicates that WiiConnect24 is off (you aren't online). This typically happens when you unplug the Wii (as opposed to turning it off). You can also go into your settings to select whether or not the Wii should connect to the Internet in both standby and on modes.

Wii standby light


To be precise, you can turn this option off from the Wii System settings -> Wii Connect 24 -> standby connection -> off

When this setting is swiched to off, your console shuts down entirely and there is a RED light on the power button. There will be no need to turn off the console pressing the power button.
