Well it might be the ac adapter thats causing the problem because mine works with a new ac adapter and i move the adapter around at a certain angle and wait for it to warm up a little bit and it works it might have the same issue like my super NES has then.So try a new ac adapter to see if it works if not then its the console its self.

  • 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. To perform an AC Adapter Reset follow these instructions: Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).
  1. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full two minutes.
  2. Unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).
  3. Check the AC Adapter for the following:
    • Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" are molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
    • Check the AC Adapter for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. If the AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be replaced, a replacement can be purchased from Nintendo's online store.
  4. After waiting two minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then the AC Adapter reset was successful.

Breaker tripped and now my nintendo wii wont turn on


Few things to try:

1. Different Outlet. Plug the console into a different outlet in your residence. If the Wii turns on, the outlet is dead. I would recommend an electrician to fix the outlet.

2. Try a different power adapter. You could purchase another power brick or get one from a friend and use the new one to try and power up the console. Also try in a different outlet (step one) to be sure

3. If none of this works, the console may have just received too much power and burnt out the power supply. Contacting Nintendo. Information below:

I BOUGHT NEW WII REMOTE AND IT WONT TURN ON


Hi,

Is the power not working on your Nintendo Wii? This can be a frustrating occurrence, especially if your Nintendo Wii was working properly before. While there are a number of reasons why this might occur, there are two common ones -- the use of a non-licensed or genuine AC adapter, or a failed AC Adapter on your Nintendo Wii. On very rare occasions, the power supply adapter on your Nintendo Wii may requiring the entire Nintendo Wii unit may need to be replaced.

However, before get too worried about that -- let's try a few basic troubleshooting procedures to try and diagnose the issue. Nintendo's guide on this problem is fairly comprehensive and has some good content, so I have included that below. In addition, you will want to check that following common issues before moving forward.
1. Check and make sure your cables are properly plugged in. This may sound silly, but sometimes they can become loosened causing bad power connections. Best to check before you spend much time troubleshooting.
2. Does the power strip or wall outlet that your are plugging the Nintendo Wii into have power? Make sure you can plug in other devices into that same outlet to verify there is not an issue with either the power strip or the wall outlet.
3. Make sure there is adequate ventilation. Although it is covered below, it is best to make sure there is several inches of free space at the back of the Nintendo Wii to provide good air circulation to the Wii so it does not overheat.
Here is the Nintendo information on trying to troubleshoot power problems on a Nintendo Wii:
1. Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work
correctly.

2. Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards, controllers, and cheat devices. Some of these products are poorly manufactured and may result in damage to your system. If one of these products is attached to your system, remove it and try resetting the AC Adapter (see below).

3. Check all accessories, licensed or not, for phsyical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. Remove any damaged products and try resetting the AC Adapter (see below).

4. Make sure the Wii has good ventilation. Avoid operating the Wii while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space. If you have the Wii placed in a vertical position, make sure the vent on the bottom is lined up properly with the hole in the plastic stand and no foreign material is obstructing that hole.

5. Check the vents on the back and side of the Wii for dust build up. The system will shut down if it cannot vent properly to prevent overheating. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vaccum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.

6. Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch. If you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position.

7. Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC adapter into the back of the Wii (the port is labeled 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet.

8. Once plugged in, check the power light on the Power button to see if the system is receiving power.

If this fails, try resetting the AC adapter.

1. Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, memory cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, hookup cables, the AC Adapter, and Sensor Bar) from the outlet and Wii.

2. Let the system rest for about 90 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that controller cords, AC Adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.

3. After the 90 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and wall outlet. Check to see if the power light on the Power button comes on.

4. If the system works, plug ONE accessory into your system starting with the Sensor Bar, then turn the system on to see if it still works. Repeat this process with ONE accessory at a time. If your system doesn't work once you put a particular accessory in (Sensor Bar, GameDisc, Nintendo GameCube controller, Memory Card, SD Card, etc.), there may be something defective with that accessory.

5. If the power does not come on, a repair will be necessary. Because it is not possible to determine which item (Wii console or A/C Adapter) needs repair, please call our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.

6. If the power is still continually shutting off regularly, please call our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options

My wii wont turn on the power does not show a light


Try a different outlet to make sure the outlet you have it on is good or not.

If a different outlet didn't make it turn on then at that point, try another ac adapter for the Wii. If a different adapter doesn't work then you know the main board inside of the Wii is bad.

Nintendo dslite wont turn on.tried charging it wit 3 different charges and it still wont charge


Ensure that you are properly recharging the battery.

1. Insert the small end of the adapter into the external extension connector (labeled "5.2V=IN") on the back of the Nintendo DS Lite, just next to the SLOT 1 Game Card opening.

2. Swing the prongs on the AC adapter until they lock into place, then insert it into a standard (120 volt) outlet.

The plug should be mounted vertically or on a floor outlet (such as a power strip).

3. Once the adapter is properly inserted, the unit will begin to charge (the orange charging light will display).

4. Once the DS Lite is fully charged, the orange charge light will go off.

Check the AC Adapter for damage (such as bent prongs or split wires). If you see damage to the AC Adapter, purchase a replacement from Nintendos Online Store.

Try plugging the AC Adapter into another wall outlet. Its possible the outlet is not working properly and has not been charging the Nintendo DS Lite.

If you are unable to get power to your Nintendo DS Lite, despite trying to properly recharge the unit, then your system will need to be repaired.

Nintendo offers convenient repairs, fast turnaround times and, for all systems repaired, a new one-year manufacturer's warranty.

Make sure that the words "Nintendo GameCube" are molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
Make sure the Nintendo GameCube has good ventilation. For best results, make sure that the system rests on an open, flat surface. Avoid operating the Nintendo GameCube while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space.
Check the vents on the sides of the Nintendo GameCube for a build-up of dust. The system will shut down if it cannot vent properly to prevent overheating. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vaccum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.
Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards, controllers, and cheat devices. Some of these products are poorly manufactured and may result in damage to your system. If one of these products is attached to your system, remove it and try resetting the AC adaptor (see below).
Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch. If you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position.
Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC adapter into the back of the Nintendo GameCube (the port is labeled DC 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet.
Press the power button on the Nintendo GameCube and check to see that the red power light on the top of the Nintendo GameCube illuminates.
If this fails, try resetting the AC adapter.
Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, memory cards, and all controllers), hookup cables, and the AC adapter from the outlet and Nintendo GameCube.
Let the system rest for about 45 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that the cords on the controllers, AC adaptor, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables (or RF Switch) are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
After the 45 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and wall outlet. Press the power button to see if the system works.

If the system works, turn the power off and plug ONE accessory into your system, then turn the system on to see if it still works. Repeat this process with ONE accessory at a time. If your system doesn't work once you put a particular accessory in (GameDisc, controller, Memory Card), there may be something defective with that accessory.
If the power does not come on, a repair will be necessary. Because it is not possible to determine which item (Control Deck or A/C Adapter) needs repair, please call our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.
If the power is continually shutting off after aprox. 30 minutes, listen to hear if the fan is working while the system is powered on. If the fan is not running, the problem will continue (Nintendo GameCube is avoiding overheating) and the system will need repair.

Power Light Flashes
If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair.
Power Light Shuts Off
If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.
