You cannot have it repaired. You must buy a 120 - 240 Volt power supply. The following website sells them and ships to India:

Wii no longer turns on! no power??


  1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).
  1. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full two minutes.
  1. Unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).
  1. Check the AC Adapter for the following:
  • Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" are molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
  • Check the AC Adapter for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. If the AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be replaced, a replacement can be purchased from Nintendo's online store.
  1. After waiting two minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then the AC Adapter reset was successful.

I bought my wii in singapore. the wii says 120V, but here in sri lanka the voltage is 220. without reading this i plugged in the wii. the red light came but before i activated it, i heard a BOOM from the...


It is possible that your power supply fried but everything else is still ok. Something like this could happen during a lightning storm. If you know someone with a wii, try to use their ac adapter (with a 120V adapter). If this works, then you just need a new power supply which is much cheaper.

No power plugged in outlet working plugged into back no lights comming on


Either 1) your Wii's power adapter is broken, or 2) your Wii is broken. If you have a friend who has a Wii, you could try borrowing their power adapter and seeing if the Wii turns on. If it does, then you know your power adapter was broken, and you can purchase a replacement.Otherwise, you're going to have to look into repairing the Wii. If you device is under warranty, Nintendo will repair it for you.
Consult Nintendo's troubleshooting guide here: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/index.jsp
Good luck.

Ok my power flashed off then back on yesterday now my Wii willnot turn on how do I get it to turn back on so can play?


Make sure something else plugged in the same exact outlet works to make sure it is not the outlet.If you unplug the AC adapter for 30 seconds then plug it back in it may fix the problem if you have a red light at least.If there is no red light you probably need a new AC adapter and even possibly manufacturer repair.Here is a link to help you out.Also,I used to repair Nintendos for an authorized center.If you do need an AC adapter,PLEASE make sure it is Nintendo brand or the packaging says 'Licensed by Nintendo' only.Anything else causes problems probably 90% of the time eventually if not right away.If you want to see my tips there is a good explanation which I put there because I have already typed it too many times.

My nintindo wii won't turn on? ive check the outlet that its plugged into and thats working properly. Does it have something to do with the power cord?


Have you tried resetting the AC adapter? Nintendo suggests to try this. To reset the AC adapter, do the following:

  1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip). You will need to leave the AC adapter unplugged from both ends for a full 2 minutes.
  2. It is suggested that you unplug anything else plugged in to the actual Wii's USB port or the Nintendo Gamecube controller/memory card ports.
  3. While waiting the two minutes for the AC adapter to reset, inspect the adapter to make sure it is not physically damaged. Also, make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" are molded into the adapter. If they are not, you do not have a licensed AC adapter. An unlicensed AC adapter may not properly function with the Wii.
  4. After waiting two minutes, plug the AC adapter in to the Wii and DIRECTLY IN TO THE WALL. If the power light comes on, the AC adapter was successfully reset :-).
Unfortunately, it is possible that this will not fix your problem. If it doesn't, check the following first:
  • Make sure that none of the accessories that you have are physically damaged. A damaged product could cause the system to turn off.
  • Make sure the system has proper ventilation. If you are using the vertical stand, make sure the vent is lined up with the hole in the stand. Additionally, check to see if the vents are covered in dust/dirt. Overheating from improper ventilation is obviously bad for your system :-). If there is a dust or dirt buildup, use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to clean the buildup.
  • Make sure that you plug the Wii DIRECTLY in to the wall, not a power strip (this was specified by Nintendo)
Unfortunately, if the above doesn't work OR if it does work and the problem occurs regularly , you will have to contact Nintendo for repair options. I will provide you with the link to Nintendo's repair services here

Good luck and I hope it all works out :-)

New AC Adapter but television screen is black. Green power light on. All connections good.


Hello :

It must be a power problem .

Most power problems with the Wii can be fixed by resetting the [AC] adapter. You can easily reset the [AC] adapter by following these steps:

Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).
The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
It's also recommended you unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).
While you're waiting, check the AC Adapter for the following:
1:Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
2:Check the AC Adapter for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. If your AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be replaced, you can purchase one from Nintendo's online store.
After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked.
If resetting the AC Adapter did not fix your power problems, please continue reading:
3:Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards, controllers, and cheat devices. Some of these products are poorly manufactured and may result in damage to your system. If one of these products is attached to your system, remove it and try resetting the AC Adapter again (see above)
4:Check any accessories that connect to the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports or the USB ports of the Wii -- whether licensed or not -- for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. Remove any damaged products and try resetting the AC Adapter again (see above).
5:Make sure the Wii has good ventilation. Avoid operating the Wii while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space. If you have the Wii placed in a vertical position , make sure the vent on the bottom is lined up properly with the hole in the plastic stand and no foreign material is obstructing that hole.
6:Check the vents on the back and side of the Wii for dust build up. The system will shut down if it cannot vent properly to prevent overheating. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.
7:Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on to verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch. If you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position.
8:Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC adapter into the back of the Wii (the port is labeled 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet (not a power strip or surge protector).
9:Once plugged in, check the power light on the Power button to see if the system is receiving power.

If that didn't help , then I recommend you to replace your Wii with new one if you still have the guarantee !

best regards .

rate please !
