Question about Nintendo Wii Console
We lost power in the house like 5 seconds tonight... we were not even playing the wii.... then nothing, it's dead... can't turn it back on?!?!
Disconnect the power supply from the wii and the wall and let it sit for at least 5 minutes. It needs to reset.

Had a storm last night and had the same issue. Wii was in standby mode and we took some power interuptions. I thought the Wii was dead. I unplugged it from the wall and also disconnected the power cord from the machine. I tested the AC adapter and was still getting 12 volts out so the problem lay in the Wii console. After five or 10 minutes the machine dissipated the electricity held in the console and when plugged back in the light came on and it seemed to work fine. This is the same problem we have at work with the computers. All power must be disconnected so the machine will be able to reset itself.

Sorted now thanks the storm blew the fuse in the power brick plug but hubby replaced it and now its fine. i will say this though nintendo were most helpfull on the phone and stated that if i need to send it back thay would pay the postage both ways and if i needed a new console it would be a new and sealed one not a refurb so there is hope for those of you who need a replacement all i did was ring customer services 08706060247 and they said they would send out the prepayment label as a precaution if the chage of fuse didnt help. try this if you still have no joy with the power. im ok now and the kids are happy but good luck to all who still need help
lol xx :)
