Sounds like a power supply failure... before it stopped working was there a tiny "pop"... or a power outage. If there isn't the red flashing circle of death... the power supply is shot needs to be replaced it is still under warranty.

Won't turn on, switches itself off after a few seconds

Check that the main power switch on the system rear is turned on. Check the AC power cord is securely inserted in the system and the electrical outlet. Also check the connecting power cord is not damaged/bent and the connections in the power plug are OK

The wii wont turn on

Try plugging the Wii into a known working outlet.

If that doesn't fix the problem, then try another known working AC Adapter if you can.

If you do these two steps and the wii doesn't turn on then the main board is bad and if your Wii is under warranty then contact Nintendo to have it repaired otherwise replace the system.

My console will not turn on. It's less than a year old!

Try resetting the AC adapter.
  1. Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, memory cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, hookup cables, the AC Adapter, and Sensor Bar) from the outlet and Wii.
  2. Let the system rest for about 90 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that controller cords, AC Adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
  3. After the 90 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. Check to see if the power light on the Power button comes on.

We have a nintendo wii, it is only 9 months old and suddenly it just wont turn on. We have checked the cables the plugs and the hand unit, we have also checked the batteries for the hand unit all ok. We...

Unplug the power brick from the wall and the console.
Wait about ten minutes to half an hour.
Reconnect power brick to wall and console.
If nothing helps, you will need to setup a repair process through Nintendo Try calling Nintendo's support hotline, toll free:

Or using their online support:

Online support may not have the answer to what you need, in which case it will lead you to a webform E-Mail service to get personal help. They will be able to tell how old your Wii is through the serial number, and then the repair it for free since it is less than 1 year old.
