Hello,
A very common failure, which seems to crop up on some of the earlier Nintendo Wii models, is where the power supply fails for whatever reason. When switched on there is no life and often, the internal fuses (or sometimes the fuse in the power lead) blow.
Very often, the fault lies with a very simple component on the power board. The usual component is a diode, of which there are four similar ones. Often though, the same diode fails each time.
Be very careful when working on the power board as it contains dangerously high voltages even when not connected to the mains. This is because capacitors can remain charged for some number of hours or days. Take all normal precautions before working in this area. In addition, handle the board as little as possible
Check the diodes with a continuity meter. If it shorts then it has blown and should be replaced with a 1 Amp diode. You should also test the two board fuses for continuity as one (or both) of these can be blown by the over current. You may also have to replace the main fuse in the power lead as this can go at the same time.
Hope this help....

Our wii has been boxed away awhile we cant get it to reconize our emotes can help


Here is a step by step instruction on Syncing your Wii remotes to you console!!http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/setupWiiRemote.jsp#Synch

Synchronizing the Wii Remote with the Wii Console Synchronizing the Wii Remote to a Wii console allows the Wii Remote to communicate with the console. The Wii Remote included with your system should already be synchronized to your console. However, all additional Wii Remotes you use with your system also need to be synced in order to function properly..
There are two different modes of synchronizing (syncing):
  • STANDARD MODE - The Standard Mode procedure is used when adding additional Wii Remotes to your system or if you want to re-synchronize your original Wii Remote. Once synchronized, the Wii Remote will stay synced to the console unless you overwrite the settings by syncing the remote to a different console. For instructions on Standard Mode syncing, please click here.

  • ONE TIME MODE - This mode allows you to temporarily use your remote on a Wii console other than your own, or to use a friend's remote on your console. It can also be used to change the order of the Wii Remotes, without the need to turn off the Wii console. One Time Mode does not delete the Standard Mode setting stored in the Wii Remote. In this mode, the Wii Remote will only communicate with the Wii console while the power is on. When the power is turned off, the Wii Remote will lose its sync with the Wii Console. For instructions on One Time Mode setup, please click here.
Note: Only a Wii Remote in Standard Mode can turn the Wii console power ON or OFF.
Standard Mode Synchronization
Note: Make sure you have placed batteries in the Wii Remote (how to).
  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.

  2. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.

  3. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED will blink. Quickly press and release the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console.

  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
  5. wiiremotesynchstandard.gifThis procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to your system.

The Wii console light will turn green


Hi sharonkayh,

Try the following:

1) Completely power down your system by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the AC Adapter from the Wii for a moment, then plug it back in.

2) Make sure your Wii console has the most current Wii system menu. Download the latest update, and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved.

This is done by:
  1. Make sure your Wii console is successfully connected online.
  2. Access the Wii System Settings.
  3. Click on the blue arrow twice to reach the Wii System Settings 3 menu options.
  4. Select "Wii System Update" and press the A Button.
  5. Select "Yes," and read any messaging regarding obtaining the update. If you agree to the messaging, select "I Accept."
  6. The Wii console will now search for the latest Wii System Update.
  7. If an update is available, it will be downloaded and installed automatically.

I hope this can help you - Source: Nintendo Website.

Kind Regards

The order in which you synchronize Wii Remotes determines the player order (1 through 4) for multiplayer games. The Player LED will blink during the syncing process.

We have bougt a new controller how do we get it to work with the wii home console do we press two buttons together to get it to work? Can you help thanks


Lots of people have this problem including me, what you do is turn the Wii on,( turn off other Wii remotes once done turning on Wii system), press the connect button on the Wii remote 1st before pressing the SYNC button on the Wii system. If the Wii remote you are talking about is like the classical N64 remote then i cannot help you at the moment but there should be a manual that tells you how to connect it. I can do some research for you if none of the following work.

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.

My wii unit does't work. There is nothing but a black screen.


Hi.If the power light is green or orange and your screen remains blank, follow these steps.

1. Completely power down your system by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the AC Adapter from the Wii for a moment, then plug it back in.

2. Make sure your Wii console has the most current Wii system menu. Download the latest update, and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved. If you continue to experience this issue, there is a problem with the Wii console and it will need to be repaired by a certified Nintendo service tech.


SYSTEM UPDATE

If your Wii console is currently connected on-line, you can download the latest Wii System Update by selecting the "Wii System Update" button from Wii System Settings menu. Downloading the latest Wii System Update will add the most current features to your Wii console. If you already have the latest update, on-screen messaging will indicate so after the Wii console searches the available Wii System Updates.

Wii Problem, the remote


make sure a combination of the 4 blue lights at the bottom of the remote are on (but not flashing, mind you). if they're not, this means that your wii remote isn't connected to your nintendo wii system yet. if when you press a button and none of the lights turn on at all, this means that there are no batteries in your wii remote. if it flashes, this means its trying to connect to your wii system. you might have to troubleshoot this a little bit. try to aim it at the bar that recognizes the wii signal (a separate piece that comes with the wii system).
hope this helps ;-)
