Question about Nintendo Wii Console
My wii is brand new (2 days) and i've been playing with it quite a lot. One time after playing with it for a few hours, i tried to get back to the menu screen from my game and the screen went black. After 15 minutes when it hadn't changed i had to force the wii to turn off.
Now, when i turn on the wii the light goes on and if theres a disc inside it starts turning, but there's no picture or sound on the TV. I've tried another TV and it did the same thing. Also, the remotes now don't respond to the wii. They can turn it on but they can't turn it off. Also, once the wii is turned on and any button on the remote is pressed the remote buttons flash a few times. Also, the wii can't be turned off properly, the button has to be held down for 5-6 seconds.
Does anyone have any ideas? i left it for about 1-2 hours and it still does the same thing.
The fact that the wii remotes don't respond properly makes me think its not the cables from the wii to the tv, as if the wii itself worked properly so would the remotes.
Any help is much appreciated :) <3
You could try resetting it by taking out the motherboard battery.
It is on the bottom at the back under a plastic cover.
You may need a tri wing screwdriver to remove the cover.
Try taking this out for a couple of hours and it will reset it.
Hope this helps,

You could try a 3rd party slot cleaner, or use the tried-and-true retro Nintendo console method of blowing into it.
How scratched is the disk? If it's really beat up, that might be the problem right there.
I had a similar problem before, and neither of my methods worked. I had to get it fixed by Nintendo themselves. Hopefully you don't have the worst-case scenario!

SOURCE: wii console is not responding
If there is no LED on, then the most likely reason is, that your wii isn't getting power. So the problem, is with the plugs, and the power adapter. If you have a friend who has a wii, try testing his power adapter on your wii. Make sure your cords are completely plugged in, on both sides, (the outlet and the wii) then press the power button on the wii. If that do-sent work, try turning it on with one of your wiimotes. If that dosent work, that means your wiimote is not synchronized with your wii. To sync. it, open the sd card cover on the front of the wii, press the red button above the sd card slot. Then open the bottom of your wiimote, (where the batteries are) and press the small red button that should be beside the batteries. Then hold the wiimote close to the wii,then after its done flashing, press the power button on the wiimote and also, try plugging your power cord into another outlet. If it still won't work, you've got a broken wii, so you better send it to get replaced or fixed, again as suggested. DON'T OPEN IT! You could loose your warranty if you open it, so it's safest not to. Hope you get it to work
Thank you !!

I had the same problem where the hand would only show up on the wii menu by pointing it due left. I tried syncing it, replacing batteries, turning on/off the console. It finally started working when I just unplugged and plugged back in the sensor bar from the console while it was on. Hope it helps.
