Your power supply / AC Adapter is probably gone. It usually takes the hit before the Wii. You can find one at the following website for $19 free shipping:

Power surge westinghouse 48' tv how do i fix it?


Unfortunately, there is no way to know from here. It's likely that all of the boards in your TV will need replacement, and the screen itself may also need replacement.
I recommend a surge protector for the next one. . . Get a good surge protector, the cheap ones only work one time, and don't tell you when that one time is....

Wii wont turn on, nothing had a lightning storm last night and now nothing


Try replacing the power cable, many times when there is a power surge and you do not have a surge protector it will burn out the transformer on the power cord. If you replace it and still nothing, most likely your Wii has been burned out by a power surge.

We had a storm and now the wii will not even turn on.


Was the Wii running while the storm was going on? Was it a lightning storm? If the answer is yes to eaither one of these then most likely there was a power surge and the power supply and / or motherboard has been damaged

Wii has no power after storm


There is a surge protection built in. Unplug it for 5 minutes then plug it back in, It should work.

Storm last night, now Wii won't power up


Unplug everything! There is a "breaker" in the power supply and it may need to be reset. Just unplug all cables from the TV and outlets. Let it sit for a couple hours then plug everything back in and it should work fine. If not then the power supply has shorted out due to a strong power surge. You can claim it under your home owners insurance or call Nintendo and try to get it replaced. Thanks! Good luck and happy gaming!!

Salutations Bloopdinkle,

Do you know if your Wii is connected to a surge protector? You can get power surges at many times especially when the power goes out, or even comes back during a storm.

If you do have a surge protector connected you may want to see if your fuse needs to be reset. If not I don't think that the Wii's manufacture's would cover surge damage.

Sorry I didn't have happier news.
