Best suggestion I can tell you is try unplugging your Wii for 2 minutes. Then plug it back in, and try again. I know it sounds weird, but I've done it for a few things after power outages/surges.
If that doesn't work, contact Nintendo.

Hi,

First and fore most make sure that the power outage is already fixed on your area, then if yes

hard reset teh console by pressing the power button for 5 to 10 seconds, then check if will turn on

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!

I have a ps3 2 days ago we had a power outage and I tried to use it today and it only turns on for about 1 second then shuts off again I cannot get the disk out anymore can you help pleeeeze


If you had a power outage then more than likely the power supply was damaged. You'll need to take the PS3 apart and swap out the old one with a new one.

Will not turn on. after a power outage.


HI. this will happen during most outages. there is a fuse located inside the power supply device that is used to power your unit. simply remove the cover off the power supply box, and replace the fuse inside. this will correct the issue.

***((Now, if the fuse is OK, and not harmed, this will confirm that the power supply has failed. It should be replaced in this case))

Power outage this am. Wii won't even turn on


Usually, after a power outage, a power spike (when the power returns) can disable/blow the fuse in the AC adapter for the Wii.

Try the following steps in this order:

FIRST:
- unplug the Wii's power cord from the wall, and leave it unplugged (from 5 mins. to 5 hours). Then, plug it back into the wall. (Unplugging the power cord from the back of the Wii will not help. You need to unplug the power cord from the wall.)
- This usually helps reset the fuse circuit in the AC adapter, and your Wii should work again.

SECOND:
- open the panel on the AC adapter box in the power cord; since the screws are proprietary, you will need to creatively use existing tools to turn the screws
- check the 3A fuse in that box; if it looks blown, then replace it

THIRD:
- it might be cheaper to replace the AC adapter with another one

FOURTH:
- get the unit repaired

MUST DO:
- buy a SURGE PROTECTOR power bar, and plug all of your expensive items into it (to prevent this from happening again).

Hope that helps!

Power Outage & Now Wii Won't Power Up...


When this same thing happened to me, I unplugged the Wii power supply from the wall (not just from the back of the Wii) and let it sit unplugged for about 10 minutes. When I plugged it back in, everything was fine.

Blinking lights then shuts off


That happen to mine. It was a bad power supply and mine was out of warranty so i replaced it myself and it fixed it. I believe it was just a weak power supply and was just not giving it the voltage that it needed anymore
