    I believe I was locked out for some reason??? I have only watched one movie on it and have played a Tiger Woods golf game and I might have hit a security lock button some how?? I've removed the battery, plugged in to AC power and the power light is on but it won't do anything else???

    Thanks, Kathie

XBox One wont turn on


I suggest plugging it into a different outlet. If it works then, then the outlet may be busted. Otherwise, if the light on the power supply (the brick) doesn't turn on when you plug it in, or the fan doesn't turn on, it may be the power supply. If the light does turn on, then it's probably your Xbox One, of which I suggest you take it to your local repair store (such as Best Buy) to get it checked out.

My SP console keeps turning itself of when I turn it on even when its been charged


If the system remains powered on when connected directly to an electrical outlet, then you are likely looking at a bad battery. If the problem persists even when the SP is plugged into an electrical outlet for charging, then you likely have some circuitry damage and may need to replace the entire SP.

Wii will not turn on even though it has power and everything is connected. Help?


This is a common problem with the Wii. Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector. If there was a power surge, or the power went out, etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter, not the Wii itself.

There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10 minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 5 or 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

I cannot get the power to wii console.all connections are ok


Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surprised Nintnedo didn't cover this in the owners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.

Unplug it from the wall outlet (NOT from the Wii). Leave it unplugged for a good 5 to 10 minutes. The AC adapter needs to be reset (more on that below).

Everything is plugged in, and it wont turn on


It seems even 5th or 6th problem is this. The AC adapter needs to be reset. Unplug it from the wall outlet for 5 to 10 minutes (NOT from the Wii, it HAS to be from the wall outlet).

Xbox 360 won't turn on


I had this problem. Make sure the pins in the USB ports (2 on the front and 1 on the back of the console) aren't bent and there's nothing obstructing them. I unbent some of the metal inside these ports, and voila! I have a working xbox.
