Reset the AC adapter by following steps below.

1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the
Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).

2. After you've waited a full 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter back in on both ends and check to see if the power light comes on.

Wii won't turn on


Wii Console Won't Turn On, and Has No Power Light Situation:
  • The Wii console won't power on, and the Power LED is unlit
  • The console powers on, but shuts off after a few seconds/minutes
  • Attaching an accessory to the console turns the power off

Information:
This issue can be caused by an accessory or power surge tripping the circuit breaker on the AC Adapter.

What To Do:
  • Check any accessories attached directly to the console to make sure that it is licensed and undamaged. Unlicensed or damaged accessories shouldn't be used with the console.

  • Try using a different wall outlet, or plug a different device into the outlet to make sure the outlet is providing power.

  • Perform an AC Adapter Reset. (How To)

Situation Not Resolved:
If the system still won't power on, the system and AC adapter will need to be repaired. To start the repair process, click here.
Wii Console Turns On, But Has No Power Light Situation:
  • The power LED on the system does not come on, but the system still powers on and plays

Information:
If the Wii Console is still working normally, it is likely that the power LED is broken.
This issue will remain limited to the Power LED, and will not get any worse.
Unless the system is having other problems, continue using the console regularly for a few weeks to determine whether this interferes with the enjoyment of game play.

Situation Not Resolved:
If, after using the system for awhile, the Power LED not coming on is too distracting, the Wii Console does carry a one-year warranty.
We are happy to inspect and, if necessary, fix the system at no charge within the warranty period. To start the repair process, click here.

I'm getting error code 51030


Hello Carole,

"Power cycle" your router and modem. To do this, unplug both the modem and the router from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug in the router. Try to connect the Wii online and test for proper response.

If that doesn't work, erase your old connection settings on the Wii and set up a new one, as your router's settings may have changed since you last connected.

If that still won't work, reset your router so it will go back to factory settings. To do that, look for the reset button locatd at the back of your router. Use a pin to press and hold it for 10 seconds.

After working just two days ago. The console will not power on. It has not been moved. We have unpluged everything,no luck.


Hello

Start simple. If there's no power to your Wii, check that the AC adaptor is firmly connected both to the game console and a live electrical outlet. If you still have no power, or the power LED light goes off in midgame or flickers, try rebooting the system. Turn everything off, unplug the AC adaptor from the electrical outlet, wait at least 60 seconds and then plug in again and turn the system on.

If this does not help you may need a new power supply.Also try cleaning the wii.Use a can of ampressed air to blow out any dirt or dust from unit.Pay attention to fan area.Be sure fan spins free.

WII will not turn on-no power light


Unplug the power cord from the Wii and the wall outlet and let sit for about 15 minutes. This should allow the power unit to fully discharge. During this 15 minutes be sure and check the outlet to make sure it is working by plugging a lamp or other device in to make sure it is getting power. After the 15 minutes is up plug your Wii back in and see if it powers up.

My wii won't turn on and I tried unplugging and disconnecting all the cords and it still won't work...any suggestions???


First verify the outlet on wall you are plugging the Wii into works.
Unplug the power cord from Wii AND the wall to allow proper discharge of the power unit. If you do not unplug from wall outlet to then the power unit will not discharge.
It could take up to 15-30 minutes sometimes.

My wii won't turn on. It's plugged into an outlet


Unplug the Wii for at least 5 minutes.
This forces a Wii "RESET".
Then plug it back in and it should work.

The Wii console is not powering up at all.


Hi there, this is a power board failure. It seems to be a manufacturing error considering the fact that, this Wii is only 2 months old. i would excercise the warranty if possible and return for exchange. this is a defective unit.

Wii won't turn on


if there is no lights going on at all while the power is plugged in and you pressed the power button.
it is pretty safe to assume that either the power unit or the wii is not working anymore.

but if you bought it last christmas you should still have warrentee and nintende should be able to fix this.
