Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

LED Light Lights Up...but nothing comes on.

So I have no clue what's going on except maybe my Wii needs to be cleaned or something. I haven't played with the Wii in a month and suddenly, when I decide to play with it, I can power it up except I get nothing but a blank screen. It doesn't even bring up the press A to start menu option and warning. I thought maybe the Audio/Video cable was the problem and switched it with the old one, but it still doesn't show anything.

I have a Protection Plan to get a replacement anytime, but before I do that I wanted to see if anyone had a solution...since I don't really want to loose all my data :((

If this is accuring, either your wii fan isn't working, or the air vent/fan needs to be replaced.

Our wii keeps shutting off

Wii Console Turns On, But Has No Power Light

The power LED on the system does not come on, but the system still powers on and plays


If the Wii Console is still working normally, it is likely that the power LED is broken.

This issue will remain limited to the Power LED, and will not get any worse.

Unless the system is having other problems, continue using the console regularly for a few weeks to determine whether this interferes with the enjoyment of game play.


Situation Not Resolved:

If, after using the system for awhile, the Power LED not coming on is too distracting, the Wii Console does carry a one-year warranty.

We are happy to inspect and, if necessary, fix the system at no charge within the warranty period. To start the repair process, click here.

Broken or lost Wii sensor bar? No problem!

So for whatever reason, you have lost the use of your Wii sensor bar. Maybe the cat chewed it or you just moved and the kids are complaining they want to play a game and you have no idea what box it was put in. Either way, the sensor bar isn't as complicated as one might think. The bar is nothing more that a light of reference point. Simple. It has ordinary LED bulbs that emit a small light. The Wiimote's cameras pick up the light and with that, the Wii can figure out how the Wiimote is being held and how far you are ect. It's more than that but we're only talking about the sensor's job. With all that being said, you simply need a light reference point placed in the required position as the sensor bar. A number of things can be used from tiny lights or what I found was best, candles. Two tea light candles in place of the sensor bar 5-8 inches apart will work just fine. TRY IT FOR YOURSELF. Unlit, the Wiimote will not show on the tv screen. Light the candles and you now can enjoy your Wii again!! <br /> Hope this helps :D

4 lights keep flashing unable to play games

Your Wii-mote needs to be synchronized to your Wii. Open the battery compartment on the back of your Wii-Mote and the door that covers the SD card slot on the front of your Wii. There should be a red SYNC button in each place. Press the one on the Wii mote and then the one on the Wii. It should then sync and work. You now it is synched when one solid LED light is lit up at the bottom.

Help! I've just bought a BRAND NEW wii and I can't even get past the screen after the language options! The black bar on top of the TV is clean and works, it has 5 LED lights on either side, so no problem...

If this happens with multiple remotes then you may need to exchange the system where you purchased it.
I would first recommend that you look at the Wiimote when you sync it. The lights at the bottom should flash after the Wii is turned on BUT should light a single one of the four lights steady after a few seconds. If it doesn't, then your problem isn't with the sensor bar. If you've attempted to sync them with no luck, then it is probably (and very unfortunately!) a hardware failure.
Also, I'd check the order in which you are syncing the Wiimotes. I think you SHOULD press the sync button hidden on the front of the console FIRST and then the Wiimotes SECOND. If that doesn't work, then try it backwards just to be safe. If neither work, then I hate to say it, but I suggest you go hunting for your sales receipt! :-(

My wii console wont take any disks.I try to put the disk in but it wont go in. The light lights up but nothing happens after that.Everything else works, like it will go to the menu screen but i cant play...

If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide.........

Setting up 2nd wii remote

Greetings mlsaenz7,

You need to resynch the second remote to the Wii console. To accomplish this you need to hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.
Thank you,

Go Ahead. Use Us.
