Wii - Power Problems
Please use the information below for all power-related issues with your Wii console. Some power problems are caused by unlicensed or damaged accessories (such as frayed wires on controllers, A/V cable, etc.). Avoid the use of these products.
Please select a topic:


No Power
    Most power issues with the Wii can be fixed by resetting the AC adapter. You can easily reset the AC adapter by following these steps:
      1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip). acunplug.png
      2. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
      3. We also recommend you unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).
      4. While you're waiting, check the AC Adapter for the following:
        • 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.
        • 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 your AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be replaced, you can purchase one from Nintendo's online store.
      5. After you've waited 2 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 it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked. If resetting the AC Adapter did not fix your power issues, please continue reading:
        • 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 above).
        • Check any accessories that connect to the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports or the USB ports of the Wii -- whether licensed or not -- for physical 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 again (see above).
        • 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.
        • 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 vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.
        • 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 Wii (the port is labeled 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet (not a power strip or surge protector). Click here for detailed instructions.
        • Once plugged in, check the power light on the Power button to see if the system is receiving power.
      If the power is still continually shutting off regularly, please click here for repair options. For this particular symptom, it is best to include your Wii console's AC Adapter with your system. This will help our technicians ensure they are able to resolve your issue.

It wont turn on all it said is loding os image


An AC power adapter and a battery work together to serve as the power supply of a notebook computer. Whenever you connect a power adapter into a laptop's power port, it supplies enough power to the battery for you to boot the operating system, run programs and perform computing tasks.

1. Turn on the laptop. If it does not power on, the battery may need to be charged. Connect the two ends of the AC adapter into the notebook's power port and a power outlet. Ensure that the power outlet into which the AC adapter is connected is active. Try plugging the power adapter into another wall outlet if the first outlet you try is not generating power.

2. See if the LED power light goes up. If it does but the laptop still does not power on, reseat the battery. Open the battery compartment at the back of the laptop and remove the battery. Wipe the gold contacts of the battery as well as the battery contacts of your laptop. Place the battery back into the slot and ensure that it is properly seated.

3. Remove all unnecessary peripherals if the laptop still does not power on; these may include external hard drives, flash drives and card readers. Turn on the laptop once again and see if it powers on successfully.

4. Use another battery or another AC adapter. If using another battery or another AC power adapter solves the problem, then the issue is with the battery or the AC adapter that you were using. Replace whichever item is malfunctioning. If this still does not remedy the issue, then the issue may be with the laptop's power port or the laptop may be malfunctioning. Seek help with a professional if this is the case.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

When i turn on my psp the green light will come on but the screen won't come on and then a few seconds later the green light will shut off completely.


Hi tokyo_grl,
First you have to figure out what is causing the problem. Try the following steps.

1. Remove anything that is connected to the PSP, including the
Memory Stick, battery and any UMD games.
2. Plug the charger into both the wall and the PSP system, then wait for at least 30 seconds before turning the psp on.
--If the PSP turns on, your problem is not with your PSP, but with an accessory that was previously attached.If it does not turn on, your PSP is in need of a repair.
3. Next, unplug the power adapter from the PSP, and firmly place the battery into the PSP.
4. Plug in the Power Adapter once again, and wait at least 30 minutes for the PSP to begin charging, then try and power on the PSP system.
--If the PSP does not power on with the battery plugged in, but it did with just the charger, you need a new battery. If it powers on, do the next step.
5. Place the Memory Stick inside the PSP , and turn on the power. If the PSP does not turn on, but it turned on without the memory, you need a new memory stick.

If your PSP did not turn on during step 2, your PSP is bricked and indeed needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

hello

shut down computer - unplug power cord from laptop - remove the battery from laptop - plug Ac adapter into computer and Ac outlet (wall)
turn on computer
if computer does not turn on, replace the AC adapter and cord - then place battery back into computer
plug in new Ac adapter and cord - recharge battery - if orange light stays on after 4-6 hours of charging battery, you need new battery as well - replace battery, charge it up and it should be fine

Wellf irst it would not load certain games and not


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. If you need a new adapter you can go here NDSL games console, ds games console, NDSL games console_Video games Console_www.goldenbridge.hk

My sons psp will work only when it is plugged into the wall. He did drop it and that is when this issue started. Is the system broke or could it be an issue with the battery?


If it works while plugged into the wall, it's a good chance it's just the battery. Power it down (select turn off system from the menu) and then remove the battery. Check to make sure nothing's cracked in the battery compartment and reinstall the battery, and try it again. Keep in mind if it's been a few days since the battery's been charged it may be low, so watch for that when turning it back on. If this doesn't work, you can buy a replacement battery, but make sure you buy the right kind, as they are different depending on your model. Good luck!

Follow the steps below to determine whether the problem is related to the AC adapter or your notebook system board:
  1. Remove the battery and disconnect all external devices from the computer.
  2. Hold the Power button for several seconds, with all power sources removed. This drains residual power from the system, and may correct many problems.
  3. Connect the AC adapter to a wall outlet and plug the other end into the computer.
  4. Press the Power button .
  5. Is the Power indicator light (LED) on or off?
****If notebook power indicator light (LED) is on, the AC adapter is working correctly***
If the power indicator LED is off, the AC power adapter may need to be replaced. To determine if the AC power adapter needs to be replaced follow the steps below:
  1. Ensure that the AC adapter is plugged directly into a known working wall outlet.
    NOTE: To check the wall outlet, plug in a different known working device like a light, radio etc.
  2. Check all of the following connections:
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the wall outlet.
    • The connection into the power adapter from the wall outlet.
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the notebook.
  3. Press the power button again to test the notebook PC.
  4. If the power indicator does not turn on, remove the AC power adapter from the notebook PC and re-insert the battery. Then press the power button. If the power indicator light still does not turn on, then the AC Adapter needs to be replaced.
*****Reseating the RAM may resolve this issue.****
Step 1 - Remove the battery
  1. Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.
  2. Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.
Step 2 - Remove the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Use your finger or a flat head screw driver to lift the inside edge of the memory module and remove it.
  4. Push both tabs outward simultaneously to release the memory module.
  5. Grasp the memory module by the edges and pull gently to remove it.
  6. After removing one module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
Step 3 - Replace the battery
  1. Insert the battery into the notebook.
  2. Push the battery into the base enclosure until you hear a click.
  3. Connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook.
fter the memory is reseated, connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook. If the notebook boots normally and the Windows desktop appears no further action is needed. If this problem re-occurs often, contact an HP Support Specialist to schedule a repair.

No power at all and power supply and battery are good


Hello,

My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to issue with notebook that seems to do not start at all. I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.

Please try below solutions on the issue.

Solution 1: Power Drain
----------------------------------

1. Make sure that pc in OFF and then disconnect the Power cable from Wall oulet
2. And then try to remove the Battery from Pc, then let the Notebook idle for 1 minute.
3. Then make sure that there is no power and battery, then try to Press and hold Power button of PC for 30 seconds,  and then release power Buttsn of Pc after 30 seconds. This should release the Static Power that is located in PC
4. Then reconnect the Battery and then powerr cable, then try to power ON PC, and check the issue.

I hope that this should start the PC, if the issue still persists then try the next solution.

  I guess that there could be an fault with PC power Adapter or with Power Cord, try to check for damage on the Power Adapter or on Power cord . If they are fine, please try to disconnect them and reconnect it firmly and check the issue. You can also try to isolate the issue by connecting the PC in another wall outlet  and checkk out the issue.

Solution 2:

Check whether If Notebook power indicator light (LED) is on, when AC adapter is connected.
 
Power indicator light (LED) is off
If the power indicator LED is off, the AC power adapter may need to be replaced. To determine if the AC power adapter needs to be replaced follow the steps below:
  1. Ensure that the AC adapter is plugged directly into a known working wall outlet. NOTE: To check the wall outlet, plug in a different known working device like a light, radio etc.
  2. Check all of the following connections:
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the wall outlet.
    • The connection into the power adapter from the wall outlet.
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the notebook.
  3. Press the power button again to test the notebook PC.
  4. If the power indicator does not turn on, remove the AC power adapter from the notebook PC and re-insert the battery. Then press the power button. If the power indicator light still does not turn on, then the AC Adapter needs to be replaced.
