    Most power issues with the Wii can be fixed by resetting the AC adapter. You can easily reset the AC adapter by following these steps:


    Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).


    The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
    Unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports.


    While you're waiting, check the AC Adapter for the following:
    Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter.


    Check the AC Adapter for physical damage.
    After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked.


    If resetting the AC Adapter did not fix your power issues:
    Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards, controllers, and cheat devices.
    Check any accessories that connect to the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports or the USB ports of the Wii -- whether licensed or not -- for physical damage.
    Make sure the Wii has good ventilation. Avoid operating the Wii while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space. If you have the Wii placed in a vertical position, make sure the vent on the bottom is lined up properly with the hole in the plastic stand and no foreign material is obstructing that hole.
    Check the vents on the back and side of the Wii for dust build up. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.
    Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in.
    Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC adapter into the back of the Wii (the port is labeled 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet (not a power strip or surge protector).
    Once plugged in, check the power light on the Power button to see if the system is receiving power.
    If the power is still continually shutting off regularly, contact Wii support.

Your electric has gone, the fuse has blown in the plug, or the power supply has died, or even the wii
itself

Why is my wii is not getting power


Because it is a Wii. ^^ Just kidding. Seriously, check your power cord. If everything is ok, then you have something internal wrong with your Wii. Repairing it would cost more than the Wii is worth.

Wii error 51331


Check your network key or password. The wrong key or password is usually the problem. If it's correct, power cycle your modem and or router. Unplug them both for 30 seconds. Plug back in and power up Wii. Try again and should work.

Chmy wii console or ACadaptor hve a problem,on console power button turns red but whenI press it to start it doesnt turn green but red light goes off what wrong with it?


Leave the wii unplugged overnight to remove any static electricity that might be interfering with the powering of the console.
If that does not work, try and follow nintendo's power troubleshooter: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/power.jsp#no_power

No power to the Wii


Yeah, it is sort of a common problem if you don't play your Wii much, simply unplug your power supply from the Wii, and the outlet, then wait a couple of minutes, and hook it back it, it should work then!

Our wii console won't turn on. The power button doesn't even glow anymore. What's wrong with it?


it might be a problem with the power converter. make sure the wall socket the wii is plugged into is working properly and you don't have a broken fuse somewhere. try a different plug to see if you can get the wii to power up at all, if not you might need to buy a new power cable.
