Just FYI but I just got off the phone with Nintendo and was told by "Leo" the very nice Customer Service specialist that you do NOT want to plug a Wii into a surge protector. It has an onboard surge protector and plugging it into another one can actually CAUSE problems.

He had us unplug the power cord completely from both the outlet and the console and wait exactly two minutes. We reconnected and it powered right up.

You likely had a power failure. You need to reset your AC adapter. Here's how:

  1. unplug the power cord from the wii. Unplug the adapter from your surge protector or the power outlet.
  2. wait 90 to 120 seconds. (Some people say to wait 30 seconds. Wrong! At least 90 secs is required for the AC adapter to rest.
  3. plug stuff back in and you're good to go.
NOTE: electronics like your wii, ps3, etc should be protected from power surges and power failures! Plug them into a good surge protector. Always!

My wii won't turn on

Wii Console Won't Turn On, and Has No Power Light Situation:
  • The Wii console won't power on, and the Power LED is unlit
  • The console powers on, but shuts off after a few seconds/minutes
  • Attaching an accessory to the console turns the power off

This issue can be caused by an accessory or power surge tripping the circuit breaker on the AC Adapter.

What To Do:
  • 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. (How To)
