Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Fried Wii The day after an electrical storm my Wii no longer has any power at all. It's the only electrical device I have ever had that has ever been harshly affected by a thunder storm. Is there an easy solution that doesn't involve sending out for repair, like the reset button on my G4?

Unplug the power supply from the wii and the wall. You must unplug it from both. Wait a full 5 min. and then plug it into the wii then the wall. This resets the power supply. 9 times out of 10 this is all you have to do.

My LG LCD 32LD350 seemed to have been fried in a storm last night, stanby red light no longer lit and won't turn on, still see some green lighting inside televison, but it won't turn on, Is it


Is it repairable, well, this question can be answered only after opening the back cover and evaluating the damage. From you side, please connect the TV to a different power outlet where other similar devices are working and see. Then try changing the input device to something that sure works. If it does not work even then, this may need attention by a qualified service technician.

Wii won't turn on after a power outage.


Hey, recently had a power outage and now your Wii won't turn on?

Well unless your Wii is completely fried from the storm then this should work (It has for me every time I have had an outage).

After you find out it's not getting power then just unplug the power cable from the wall and from the Wii. Normally I unplug it for about 12-24 hours then you go plug it back into the wall, plug it back into the Wii, look at the power button and if it is red/orange then it has been fixed and you should never have a problem with it again unless you keep it plugged in during a thunderstorm/power outage!


This has happened to me about 8 times and this method worked every single time!

It is possible that your power supply fried but everything else is still ok. Something like this could happen during a lightning storm. If you know someone with a wii, try to use their ac adapter (with a 120V adapter). If this works, then you just need a new power supply which is much cheaper.

Try using a friend's power adapter just in case yours got fried. If you don't know anyone that has a wii you can buy new adapters at stores like Gamestop for I think $20. If it doesn't work they have a policy now where you can return them even if they're opened within 7 days. If a new adapter doesn't work then your wii may be fried. Try calling Nintendo and see if they can do a repair for a cost, or if you are still under warranty and if they'll cover you.

No power


Well no because i just had a terrible storm too and my WII went off when i was playing it too so it all depends how long you have had your WII and if so if someone messed with the console.

My Wii will not power on


Have you tried using someone else's Wii power cord? The power outage may have fried the power cord. If you try a new power cord and it still doesn't work, then it seems like the only thing you are able to do is to send it in for repairs. When you try and use a different power cord, borrow a friend's if possible instead of buying a new one, just in case.

I have plugged wii in 220 volt recepatacle though it was 110 volt what to do


Hello,

There are two possible scenario's when you accidentally plug a 110V device in a 220V outlet:
1: The power supply to the device you plug in gets fried. this is your best case scenario. See if you can borrow a Wii power supply from a friend and test your console with this power supply. If this works, you just need a new power supply and all is well.
2. Your Wii gets fried. Worst case scenario: your Wii got fried. If it is still in warranty, see if they will cover this damage under the manufacturer warranty, if not, I am afraid you will either need to pay for repairs or buy a new console.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but plugging a 110V device in a 220V outlet generally will fry one thing or the other or even both.

Thanks for using the FixYa forums!

Wii fried in an electrical storm


Hey Sorry for your loss, But I don't think you can fix it for cheap this kind of repair will be expensive and I wouldn't count on it either. Your best option is to buy a new one and make a claim Tom
