Make sure it is not sitting on the floor/carpet etc. Also make sure it's sitting up right and not layting flat. Make sure it is sitting in it's silver stand. If the vents on the bottom or back of the wii are covered in any way it will overheat. Also, you might blow out the dust from the bottom vent.

SOURCE: heating and shutting off

There is a small fan in the back of the Wii, about 2 inches square. Does the fan spin when the console is turned on?

If the fan is spinning check to see how dirty it is. I use two Qtips to clean it. One to hold it stationary and the other to clean it.

If the fan spins and it is not all gunked up, then you need to move the console. It is not getting enough fresh air.

Thanks, Bob

I play my Wii for about 15 minutes and then it just shuts off. I have to unplug and plug back in the AC adapter to get it work again. When I start playing again, the problem happens again.


Sounds like classic computer problem with overheating. I know there is a stand with a built in fan for the Wii. But the normal stand should be enough. Have u dusted around you Wii? Everything with cooling has some amount of dust that finds it way into the machine. And all pc and consoles shut down when overheating, as a protective measure. Otherwise stuff would melt inside.

My wii console will not turn on - everything is plugged in correctly - turned on for about 5 sec. I put in the game and then it shut down - now it will not turn on at all


The power cable may be messed up. Try unplugging all of the cables from the Wii and the wall and television so that the cables are not attached to anything and let them sit and "rest" for about 10-15 minutes. This is what Nintendo calls resetting your power cable and will hopefully solve your problem.

Wii games keep restarting after very few minutes


Sounds like something might be wrong with the fan or whatever keeps it cool. Because i know some systems will shut themselves down if they get too hot. This acts like a safety measure. That or your power button is stuck.

Wii shutting down


If you are having to unplug the power supply then your powersupply is faulting out. Try a new location to plug it in and see if that fixes it. If so have the voltage checked at the outlet on your wall. If this doesn't fix it replace the power supply. LMK if you need one and I can help you with getting one at a discounted price.

Wii keeps shutting down


First, I would advise you to not power up the console if it's getting hot. When the console is running, can you see the small fan on the back spinning? If not, you can probably buy an external cooling fan like this one.

This will act as a surrogate cooler to replace the original fan, and should allow the console to stay cool enough to remain on.
