It is very possible that the power brick may have gone bad. If at all possible (such as a friend has a Wii) then try a new plug on the Wii and see if that fixes it. If not then double check the wall outlet. If you still have no power on the Wii then you may have a defective unit. Some computer repair shops will try to diagnose the problem for you if you would like to take one in, but the price for repairs may be more than just buying a new Wii...

Best of luck

First, you should check simple troubleshoots in the Wii's manual
You might might find other useful resources in there too, for example tech support etc.

Though if it's really broken you might want to consider to check your machine' warranty, maybe it may be replaced with no charge :)

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.

We dropped our WII down a few stairs. It turns on, but doesn't read the disc.


Well it's possible that you just plain out broke your disk drive?

You could try softmodding your wii to play games off a hard drive or sd card. but it is a somewhat difficult process and will take some time.

otherwise you could probably get it repaired by nintendo.

good luck

I can't turn on the Wii. The red light is always on and when I press the power button (or even the eject button) the blue light is flashing (Only when I press those buttons). I tried the solution of...


Try pressing the power button down and holding it for a few seconds and see if your WII comes back to life. When I first got my Wii I would hold down the button just long enough for it to turn green. This seems like a standby mode. To get my Wii to turn off completly I needed to hold down
the button until it turned red and when restarting the WII I held doen the button until the Wii started back up.

How do you connect the internet to the wii i have wireless in the house and it still wont connect


First, you have to go through the Internet connection setup process through the console and you've made no mention that you've attempted that so I wanted to make you aware of that. On the main menu, go to the lower left corner and click on the round Wii button. A new menu will appear with two options: Data Management and Wii Settings. Select Wii Settings. Go to the second page and choose Internet. Select Connection 1: None. Select Wireless Connection. Select Search For An Access Point. A network list will appear, select yours. You will then be prompted to enter the password/network key that you established when you set up your wireless router. The Wii will attempt to test the connection. If successful save your settings.
Second, simply because you have Wireless in the house it doesn't mean that it your wireless router has signal strength to reach the WIi. Various factors affect this including signal strength, distance from the wireless router to the console and obstacles such as walls and ceilings that interfere with the signal. If you're using a G router and you have your Wii is too far away or, has obstacles in the way, it will not connect. You should use an N-Router if there is a significant distance between the console and the router or if there are obstacles. Here is everything you need to know about connecting your Wii to the Internet.

Wii control


Try to reconnect your wii-motes, by using the red button on the wii underneath that front flap where you would put the SD card. and then the other red button on the controller where you put the batteries in. and make sure the batteries are fresh
