Question about Nintendo Wii Console
I was playing a game all of a sudden the power when out and the game system wouldn't come back on. i un plug from wall and disconnect everything and connected back up still no lights or power please help
Unplug the power adapter at both ends (at the console and especially at the power outlet). Give the capacitors at least a minute to completely dissipate residual energy. Then, hook it back up and it should be good to go.
I would give credit to someone else for this super simple solution. But, it's all over the internet.

It sounds as though you were hit by a power surge. Most power-surges are preceded by a sort of power loss. The surge probably fried the wii.
You could try getting a new power cord, but I bet you wii is dead. If you purchased any sort of service plan you are entitled to a new one through the retail store, otherwise nintendo will not refund your wii as power surges are not covered by the manufacturer. If you bought it from bestbuy i hope you took the sales man's advice and purchased the plan.
