Hi, my name is Shaun. i will attempt to help you with your problem. The answer to your question is "quite possibly." The electronics inside game consoles are particularly sensitive. A power spike resulting from an electrical strike on a power line or the amperage surge from the inrush current when power is restored could easily fry the delicate circuits. My best recommendation would be to have a repairman check the power supply and see if it is still good, or see if your warranty covers those types of repairs, if you have one.

Wii won't turn on.


Reset the AC adapter by following steps below.

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

2. After you've waited a full 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter back in on both ends and check to see if the power light comes on.

My wii went off after a thunderstorm and doesn't get on anymore, can I do something to fix it? I've already changed the battery inside but nothing cheanged.


First make sure the circuit is live - Are there other things on that circuit? Do they work? If not, check that the breaker hasn't tripped, and reset it if necessary. Next, check that that specific outlet wasn't damaged. Plug something else into it. Does it work? If not, the outlet needs to be replaced. Also plug the Wii into another outlet. If it works, this also confirms the original outlet has been damaged. If the Wii still doesn't power on, the power supply has probably been damaged. Unless you can replace it yourself, it probably isn't worth having it repaired.

My light is on in my fridge, but it is not getting cold, i had an electrical outage and it seems as though it hasn't worked since Nancy


With the power outages we get here, it is a common problem. The first thing you need to do is determine if the compressor is activating or not. Take a look at the compressor compartment and feel (carefully) the top of the compressor. If it is warm but no sound from it, then it might be the contactor-relay or the start capacitor. If it is extremely hot then the compressor could be blown but you would need to check it with an ohm meter to be sure.

The most common failure (after a power outage) is the contactor-relay and the capacitor.

My 12inch speakers work in my house but when I hook them back up to my truck they dont work . My amp used to have a red light on it but now it doesnt work i bought a new amp and speakers and still nothing...


Could be a number of things. Check all the fuses (the power wire, the amp). Make sure your ground wire hasn't worked loose. Make sure your remote wire hasn't worked loose either (sometimes vibration causes loose crimped wires to come out behind the head unit). Happy Hunting

All of a sudden the MP560 won't turn on. The outlet is working but the printer doesn't respond to the ON button. I've checked the power cord it seems to be ok, the cord hasn't moved or been...


This may be a longshot, but many electronic devices like TVs, dryers with electronic computerized controls, entertainment systems like the Wii, and other devices sometimes get "confused" and won't turn on, turn off, or otherwise work properly, perhaps due to a small power surge in your AC line.

I've found that one of the first things to try when it appears to be a failure of the electronics and not a mechanical issue is to unplug the device at the wall (to make sure that any power adapter is also unplugged) and wait about 10 minutes for any residual electric charge to dissipate. Then plug the device back in and give it a try. This has worked with a television, a Wii console, an electric clothes dryer, and some other devices that I thought had died for good. This may explain why sometimes a device is taken to a repair shop and it works fine.

There are, of course, other reasons that the unit won't turn on, but I would try this first before looking for other reasons for the problem.

I just recently move my entertainment center around and plug all of including the Wii console. so when i put everything back, plug them all in the Wii console did not work... I thought i meight have...


It's very possible. If you plug in the power source for you Wii and no light comes on at the power button for the Wii, it is a problem with the power cord. If not, it may be a problem with the Wii itself. Test this out to see whether you need to get a new power cord or to have you Wii sent in for repair.

Wii will not power on


The light on our Wii would not turn ON, and would not power up. No red, no yellow, nothing.

To fix, we unplug the Wii console. We turn the WIi console so that the back-side fan area is pointing towards the ceiling and then vacuum the fan area. Then we place it back into the Wii stand, plug it in, and the red light comes on. It powers up and works perfectly again. Obviously this won't solve everyone's issues (i.e. electronic component failures), but it has worked several times for us. Definitely worth a shot before shipping your unit off for repair.

I think the fan gets clogged and WIi protects itself from overheating, but do not really know why this works... but it does!
