Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the ORANGE LIGHT OF DEATH (no display error)

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a Wii Repair Guide , From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

The other solution would be to send the console off to Nintendo, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $90



Glad I could Help!

Good Luck & Best Regards

Pete

I can't turn on the Wii. The red light is always on and when I press the power button (or even the eject button) the blue light is flashing (Only when I press those buttons). I tried the solution of...


Try pressing the power button down and holding it for a few seconds and see if your WII comes back to life. When I first got my Wii I would hold down the button just long enough for it to turn green. This seems like a standby mode. To get my Wii to turn off completly I needed to hold down
the button until it turned red and when restarting the WII I held doen the button until the Wii started back up.

When I turn on my DS (I have original) green light light like always the screen flashes (0,1 second I think) and all go off


If the power light is green or orange and your screen remains blank, follow these steps.

      1. Completely power down your system by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the AC Adapter from the Wii for a moment, then plug it back in.
      2. Make sure your Wii console has the most current Wii system menu. Download the latest update (how to), and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved.

My wii works but my controler dosent show up on the screen but the buttons work i need help


Usaully,
I don't know about the Wii but I know what happens with the light on the Wii

Green - The Wii Console is on

Yellow - You are connected to Wiiconnect24. It's harsh not to keep the "Yellow" light on because it could overheat the Wii Console. So if it's "Yellow", put your finger on the "Power" Button and keep it there for a long time. When you push it, it will start with Yellow then turn to Green then keep the finger there for a while then will turn to Red

Red - The Wii Console is off


Blue - You are connected to Wiiconnect24. When it turns Blue, It means you are getting a message from the Wii Console or on Standby Mode

Can't sync wii remotes to console


When you sync the wii motes you have to do it in proper order!!!

There are 2 ways to sync one is minor out of sync stuff. You push red button on the wii briefly then quickly press the red button on the wiimote.

Second one is what you need to do. First remove any disk then hold in the power button until the light turns red. (not yellow or orange). Release it then unplug the Wii. Do not remove the batteries but if they are low replace them before you turn it back on. Wait at least 2 minutes.
Have the backs off the Wiimotes.
Plug the Wii in.
Turn the power on.
As the Health and Safety screen appears push in the red button on the Wii.
Hold it there a min. of 15 seconds. 25-30 is better.
When you release it right away push the red button on the first Wii mote. It flashes all the lights.
Immediately press then release the red button on the Wiimote while lights are flashing. When they stop flashing it will be synched.
a.Then press the button on the Wii again (this time only hold for 2-3 seconds) then press the red button on the second wiimote and while lights flash press the button on the Wii again.
Repeat a. for any other wiimotes.

My wii is not working


If it's orange that means it is turned off. It turns green when you turn it on. Insert a disc, press the power button or hit eject.

Power is on but screen is black


I found this [temporary] solution at http://www.wiierror.com/wii-black-screen.php:

(via email, thanks Steven) This happened to me once, but I fixed it. Here is how:
Eject the disk
Unplug the wii at the back
Wait 1 minute
Plug it back in
Turn it on from the remote
Press reset if it does not show up
Hold the power button to shut it off
Turn it on once more.
I don't know how, but it seemed to work for me. The problem happened when I was trying to load the Mii channel. Hope this helps !

(via email, thanks Andrew)
The first time I shut down my Wii, the light went orange (as it should). When I turned on the power with my wii remote the next day, the wii\'s light turned green but the screen was black.
The treatment was the same as from Black Screen, No Connection: Unplug the Wii\'s power supply unit, then replug; turn system on with wii remote.
The difference is: this problem can strike in more places than just by loading the Mii Channel. Also, I think the green light being on (yet there being a black screen) is a common symptom as well.
