Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

I think my power supply is going out. Wii shuts off in the middle of a movie and the only way to get power back on is to unplug wii and plug it back it.

That is possible, but I think it is overheating. You might have hit your Wii on accident and knocked the internal fan out of place. If your warenty is still up, i suggest you just replace the Wii. But you could find someone to fix it~ Im not too sure who you could take it to, though. Hope I helped!

Epic Mickey 2 wii on wii u remote and nunchuck problems.


Do you think it's the battery? Or maybe the back. If the wii loses power, either the game you are in will immediately pause or it will continue moving in the same direction you pointed it in before the wii lost power

The wii shut down by itself when i connect the usb back of the will HELP PLZ!!!!!!!!!


I had the same issue, but with an external HDD. Whenever I booted the Wii with the EHDD in the USB, it would turn on then off. I unplugged the EHDD, worked like it was supposed to. After the Wii went to the main menu, I plugged the EHDD into the USB, and it shut off. Sometimes it would take 20 seconds to shut off, but it did.

By accident, I found the solution. I had a bad power supply. I used a different power supply, and the USB issues went away.

Unplug the power supply from the wall, and from the Wii box. Wait a few minutes. Connect power supply back to the Wii, plug it back into wall.

Our Wii was plugged in last night, this morning there is no power, we have unplugged everything and replugged back in, still no power. What do I do?


Hi there,
How long did you unplug the Wii from the power supply? As to reset the power adapter it needs to be unplugged from the power for a full 2 minutes before plugging it back in and trying to power up the Wii. (This resets the circuit breaker in the Wii power supply)
Cheers

The wii power will not com on


try unplugging and repluggin your wii back in several times. If that does not work, try removing the battery (while unplugged of course) and putting it back in. FINALLY, if that does not work, then unplug the Wii overnight and plug it back in in the morning.

if all that doesn't work the power supply (located in the power chord) or the power chord itself might be bad. Either call nintendo at this point or go buy a new chord

Power Outage & Now Wii Won't Power Up...


When this same thing happened to me, I unplugged the Wii power supply from the wall (not just from the back of the Wii) and let it sit unplugged for about 10 minutes. When I plugged it back in, everything was fine.

Power is on but screen is black


I found this [temporary] solution at http://www.wiierror.com/wii-black-screen.php:

(via email, thanks Steven) This happened to me once, but I fixed it. Here is how:
Eject the disk
Unplug the wii at the back
Wait 1 minute
Plug it back in
Turn it on from the remote
Press reset if it does not show up
Hold the power button to shut it off
Turn it on once more.
I don't know how, but it seemed to work for me. The problem happened when I was trying to load the Mii channel. Hope this helps !

(via email, thanks Andrew)
The first time I shut down my Wii, the light went orange (as it should). When I turned on the power with my wii remote the next day, the wii\'s light turned green but the screen was black.
The treatment was the same as from Black Screen, No Connection: Unplug the Wii\'s power supply unit, then replug; turn system on with wii remote.
The difference is: this problem can strike in more places than just by loading the Mii Channel. Also, I think the green light being on (yet there being a black screen) is a common symptom as well.

Wii power supply


To reset the AC adapter you need to unplug it from the wall outlet and the Wii console and wait at least two minutes. Plug it back in and it should come on. If you have it plugged in a surge protector with other appliances, the other appliances may be interrupting the adapter, causing the power to go off.
