To be precise, you can turn this option off from the Wii System settings -> Wii Connect 24 -> standby connection -> off

When this setting is swiched to off, your console shuts down entirely and there is a RED light on the power button. There will be no need to turn off the console pressing the power button.

When it shows that yellow-ish color, that means you currently connected to the internet. Doesn't bother me when it's yellow instead of red, i sorta like it better

You need to hold it down longer till it goes red. If it also goes yellow he blue light should go on every so often.

My power light turns yellow instead of red i have to hold thepower botten to make it red


With the Wii system, when you hit the power button, it goes into Standby mode. That is the yellow light. In standby mode, the system draws a little bit of power, and it will go into a ready to play state faster than when Off. Holding the power button FULLY powers off the Wii system, and that will give you the red light. Hope this helps!

Yellow light on wii


It's just the way the wii works. Hold the power button for about 5 seconds and the power button will go red and turn off instead of going yellow and going into standby mode.

My wii works but my controler dosent show up on the screen but the buttons work i need help


Usaully,
I don't know about the Wii but I know what happens with the light on the Wii

Green - The Wii Console is on

Yellow - You are connected to Wiiconnect24. It's harsh not to keep the "Yellow" light on because it could overheat the Wii Console. So if it's "Yellow", put your finger on the "Power" Button and keep it there for a long time. When you push it, it will start with Yellow then turn to Green then keep the finger there for a while then will turn to Red

Red - The Wii Console is off


Blue - You are connected to Wiiconnect24. When it turns Blue, It means you are getting a message from the Wii Console or on Standby Mode

The "on" light is always green, even if turned off. Why?


It occurs when your wii in the Standby, but WiiConnect24 is enabled with Standby Connection is enabled. the content can also be received when the Wii is left in standby mode.

WiiConnect24 can be turned on or off via the setup setting. While the console is in standby, the power LED indicates the current status of the standby connection,

  • Red indicating Standby - wiiConnect is off,
  • Yellow indicating Standby - Connect mode is on. If you hold the power button for 3-4 seconds, the Wii goes into standby mode with Standby Connect off. and WiiConnect24 will not operate until the console is turned on.

When console is turned off the light is glows yellow instead of red.


Yellow just means that it's on standby. If there's a new message or there's an update, your Wii will start blinking blue.

If you want to turn it completely off, just go to the Wii menu, Click the Wii icon (Options), then click Wii settings, click the right arrow to get to Wii System Settings 2, then click on Wii Connect 24, then click on Standby Connection, then click off.

Don't worry about the heat. It's normal when you have it on standby.

Wii display black/ white only


I had this problem too. It was just because I had the wrong cord that goes from the Wii to the t.v. I had a green, blue, and red for the video. And a red and white for the audio, while my T.V. only took yellow for the video. I just went out and bought the right cord that instead of having green, blue, 2 reds, and a white, just had a yellow, red, and white.
Hope this helps.

My wii will not power off the little light goes from green (when turned on) to orangekind of color.....this did not happen before until now that i set up my wireless internet to it


Your Wii is set to be on 24 connect. When you turn it off it goes into a stand by mode that allows it to get data for the weather, news, and shop channel. As well as get emails in. Its fine like it is. But if you want it to turn off, you'll have to go into the options and disable the Wii 24 Connect.

Yellow light


Yes this is perfectly normal, the colours are as follows with meaning: Red: Completely off, no wifi connectivity, Yellow/orange: Standby, Wifi connection on (enables you to receive messages) Green: On

If you want the console to completly turn off just hold down the power button for a few seconds rather than just pressing it.
