Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

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.

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
