Take it to a dealer to repair it, the power surge fried it and there's nothing you can do about that.

    Azraelsri is 100% right on this one!!! A good surge protector would have prevented this.

    Here is a few tips to look for in a good surge protector:

    1. Response time should be less than 1 nanosecond.

    2. Energy absorption/dissipation should be at a rating of 600 joules or more.

    3. Clamping voltage should be 330 V to 400 V. Generally, a clamping voltage more than 400 V is too high.

    4. Get one with a an indicator light that tells you if the protection components are functioning. All MOVs (Metal oxide varistors (MOV) are semiconductors that protect electronic components and systems from transient voltages) will burn out after repeated power surges, but the protector will still function as a power strip. Without an indicator light, you have no way of knowing if your protector is still functioning properly.

    5. Get one that has self test function. A button you push to test it.

The power went off in my house and now my wii will not power up?


Make sure a fuse did not blow out. If not try a different plug and just reset everything.

We just got our we, we plugged it in then the power in the whole house went out and the wii won't turn back on - HELP


My guess would be that the fuse in the plug has blown. Try replacing the fuse and try plugging the power supply back into the mains power socket but do not connect it to the Wii. If the power goes again and the fuse blows then the power supply is faulty. If the power in the house stays on then try plugging the power connector into the Wii and see if it works.

My wii console won't turn on


Sounds like it overloaded the Wiis power supply when the power went back on. You should call Nintendo to try and have it looked at under warranty. How old is your Wii? Did you have a surge protector plugged in at the time?

Power will not come on at all a cable guy came to my house turned cable off to reset it my power went out and some sparks came out of some outlets next day my son went to play wii it would not come on....


1. Try plugging something else into the socket to ensure the socket itself is working.
2. Changing the fuse in your Wii power adapter, blown fuses are very common and this could be it.
3. If number 2 doesn't work try and get a hold of a replacement power adapter as the problem could be a break in the wire.You can get a new adapter at this site NDSL games console, ds games console, NDSL games console_Video games Console_www.goldenbridge.hk

How to reprogram on my wii-mote??


Do you know where the SD Card slot is? If not, it's at the front just below the disc drive. Open the SD card slot entrance on the front, and take the back off the wii-mote. Turn the wii on, and at the health warning, hold the sync button on the wii-mote, and the one near the SD slot for 5 secconds. That should do it.

Wii completely stops working after power outage


I just had the same problem as everyone else. I had a brief power loss and our new Wii system's power would no longer work. To fix the problem, I unplugged everything from our Wii and unplugged the power cord from the outlet. I let the system set for 10 minutes and re-plugged the power only. That did the trick. Then I was able to plug everything back up and we are now back to playing.

Supposedly, doing the steps above resets the Wii according to the Nintendo online trouble shooting guide.
