Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Won't turn on

I got my Wii a couple weeks ago and it was working fine until I went on vacation for a week. I came back and now it won't turn on. I've tried unplugging and reconnecting all the cords but nothing will make the power button activate the power on the Wii console. When I hit the power button on the remote it lights up blue like it's trying to connect but nothing happens. What can I do?

    Same and I cleaned the vents on the bottom and back. I also tried unplugging everything and re-doing it all. It was used one day, and the next would not work at all. Plug on the power strip does work.

    I have the same problem. One day it worked fine. The next day the power will not come on the console. Tried to unplug and reconnect everything and nothing, still no power.

Did you leave it on for the week while you were gone? if so you may have built up **** on the vents of the wii and it will automatically shutdown and not come back on untill it's clear to avoid overheating. Make sure none of your wires are exposed or frayed cuz this will make it shut down too. and I know it's dumb but something the dumbest things can get ya, check that the wall outlet works by plugging lamp into it or something cuz i've had this happen to me. Oh and check and make sure all wires are connected very well

Wii is dead


1. push the reset button and if that doesn't work unplug all cords and memory cards (including sd) from wii and unplug av from the wii and the outlet in wall. Wait 2-3 min or unplug the wii overnight and The trick i use was to literally smack the power supply on the ground and plug it back in. It seemed to work for a few weeks, until you buy a new power cord Don't call Nintendo unless you've got some money. it'll be $82 bucks.

Our Wii has no power no light no nothing


Okay, I had this problem also, it made me freak out, considering it was only 1 week old! what I did, and it worked, is
1. unplug every wire connected to the system (wires to/from wall, to sensor bar, and to/from TV)
2. unplug every other thing connected to it (i.e. memory cards, older controlers, etc...)
3. let it stand off in the dark for a couple of minutes (I reccomend 5 minutes or so)
4. plug the wires back in
5. turn it on
6. put anything else back in (i.e. the memory card)

If that doesn't work, or if this keeps happening, I reccomend bringing it back to the place you bought it (Walmart, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc)
, b/c they can give you a new one, or your money back. However, the warrenty could expire, or not even exist if you bought it online, or if you've had it too long.

I hope I helped you!

Have you updated your Wii? There was a program update a couple of weeks ago. My son had this problem with a different game and after updating it worked fine.

No picture on tv when wii is swiched on


Please check the back of the Wii for loose or disconnected cords. Also check the back of the television for loose or disconnected cables. Also if you use an adapter and the Wii runs through a different source before the television such as a VCR, or DVD Player, Check those to. Hope this helped! Have a great day!
