Question about Nintendo Wii Console
My wii no longer has a power supply. Ive tried plugging it in other sockets, plus checked the fuse and the connection to the wii.
To reset the AC adapter you need to unplug it from the wall outlet and the Wii console and wait at least two minutes. Plug it back in and it should come on. If you have it plugged in a surge protector with other appliances, the other appliances may be interrupting the adapter, causing the power to go off.

Sleeslack's solution works for me. I had determined that it was the PS, as there wasn't 12V available at the connector. I had other web hits that said it was the 2.5A fuse inside the PS, and was looking for special screwdrivers, etc, and faced with finding my soldering equipment- Glad I ran into this. Usually it only takes <30 seconds, so although I had tried unpluging- I didn't wait long enough. this suggests there is some sort of thermal circuit breaker that needs time to cool off to reset. Glad it wasn't the fuse. I'll be pluging into my entertainment system UPS to avoid this happening next time there is a surge...

It could be the power supply, or it could be the Wii itself.
If you have a friend with a Wii, try taking your Wii over and plug it into their power supply.
You can also do the troubleshooting from Nintendo's site:

After cutting the end off and splicing it on another 12 v supply and finding that didn't work, I was going to buy a new supply. Then I read the above about waiting a couple minutes. Spliced the end back on the WII power and it worked. Thanks for saving me some money.
