Question about Nintendo Wii Console
Hi,Usually, after a power outage, a power spike (when the power returns) can disable/blow the fuse in the AC adapter for the Wii.
- unplug the Wii's power cord from the wall, and leave it unplugged (from 5 mins. to 5 hours). Then, plug it back into the wall. (Unplugging the power cord from the back of the Wii will not help. You need to unplug the power cord from the wall.)
- This usually helps reset the fuse circuit in the AC adapter, and your Wii should work again.
- open the panel on the AC adapter box in the power cord; since the screws are proprietary, you will need to creatively use existing tools to turn the screws
- check the 3A fuse in that box; if it looks blown, then replace it
- it might be cheaper to replace the AC adapter with another one
- get the unit repaired
Thanks and good luck
