Question about Nintendo Wii Console
The LED on my brother's wii turns green when you press it, but the console doesn't startup; the screen stays black. Pressing the power button once its green won't power it off either. I plugged in my wii right next to his using the exact same cables and setup his was using and mine works, so its not the cables.
When trying to sync remotes with my brother's wii they won't sync so I can't tell if there is an audio/video issue since I can't reach the menu screen.
We played on his wii last night so I really don't understand what is wrong. He has owned it for over a year now.
Just spoke to Nintendo Technical support. Seems the rub is in the AC adapter itself.
Need to power down at both ends of the AC adapter--unplug AC adapter from wall output AS WELL AS from back of Wii.
Wait at least two minutes to allow any charge in the adapter itself to dissapate. Plug adapter into wall first, then back into the Wii, making sure your peripherals (eg AV receiver, TV, projector if using) are already on.
Tech support says sometimes you get a partially tripped "fuse" within the AC adapter itself.
This seems to have worked for now--will let the forum know if further problems

Its bricked, means broken. If it was soft-modded, you could be fine. You have to hold the button to turn it off because bricked Wiis won't support WiiConnect24 anyways...

hum........ that is weird I'm not really sure how to fix that. But make sure all the cable from the wii are plugged in properly. For example: the red, yellow and white cables may look like they are plugged in but sometimes you have to push them in really hard to get them to work.
My wii does that sometimes in the middle of a game it just goes black so I just have to walk up to the TV and make sure they are im properly.

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