Plug it back into where you had it and see if it comes on. Sometimes when plugging into an old outlet the prongs to not make a full contact inside the outlet.
If it doesn't work in any outlets then call Nintendo and have it serviced under the Warranty.

I unplugged my wii to move it to another tv and it after i plugged it back in the tv was black the volume worked and the controllers rumbled al the power was on and working,


Power light is green or orange - TV screen is blank
    If the power light is green or orange and your screen remains blank, follow these steps.
    1. Completely power down your system by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the AC Adapter from the Wii for a moment, then plug it back in.
    2. Make sure your Wii console has the most current Wii system menu. Download the latest update (how to), and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved.
    If you continue to experience this issue, there is a problem with the Wii console and it will need to be repaired.

Not used the Wii in several months. Now it will


I had a similar problem with our Wii, although Im not sure if its the same situation. We didnt use ours for awhile either but I still had it plugged in to the power strip. Unplug it from the power source and leave it unplugged for 5 mins or so. When I plugged it back in it powered on and worked fine. I got this off of nintendos support site, and I included the link here. I hope this helps.. Happy Gaming..

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.

Power Outage & Now Wii Won't Power Up...


When this same thing happened to me, I unplugged the Wii power supply from the wall (not just from the back of the Wii) and let it sit unplugged for about 10 minutes. When I plugged it back in, everything was fine.

Loose power


We have the same problem. This is actually our second system. Our first system started overheating 3 months old...Nintendo replaced with no problem. Our current system is 17 months old and is doing the same thing. I again contacted Nintendo (2x) and they informed me I was out of warranty BUT they would send in for FREE REPAIR, since I had this issue for the second time, and I told them I was not happy. It takes a bit of persistence with the automated phone system but if you keep trying you will get the prompt. Nintendo 1-800-255-3700

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!
