    My Wii was stuck, so I turned if off by removing the powerplug from the socket. Now it won't get power (i.e. no leds burning etc)

Why my wii has no power

if your've had a power surge (bc of a thunderstorm or other power problem) the power brick may have gone bad. Its basically a surge protector for your wii as well as the power source. If it is bad the only solution is to buy a new power brick, I think theyre like 20 or 30 at gamestop.

Wii console won't switch on - has been working

many times after a power surge even with it on a surge protector the power brick can go bad
have replaced countless power bricks

if you have a friend with a wii see if you can barrow the brick to test you system out ... Power bricks run under $10 at the right places.
most of the time power brick will go before it gets to the system

if it still doesnt work try to power it on with wiimote or eject power button might have broken they are weak buttons and break easy

The Wii console will not turn on. What could be the problem? I have tried plugging into diff outlets and nothing.

Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surpised Nintnedo didn't cover this in theowners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is apower surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked upto asurge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appearsdead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If therewas a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter2_bing.gif,not the Wii itself.

There is no need to buy a new one or a AC adapter. Resetting it should work. There is a circuit inside the AC adapterthat needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surgeprotector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at theoutlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it fromthe wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuittime to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

Wii sofmod semi bricked

To fix a semi brick or a full bricked Wii, you will need a backup of your Wii's NAND. Hopefully you made a backup of your Wii's NAND using BootMii.

No power to wii console

Try pluggin the power adaper into a differnet wall socket. Also try pluggin a different device into the socket that the Wii is currently plugged into to test that the socket is good. Make sure all cables are connected firmly including the spot on the power brick. If this does not work then something has either gone bad in the Wii or the power brick is dead.

Wii lights dont glow after install

You might be OK. It sounds like the power brick died. The power brick sends only 5v/12v DC power to the unit. You most likely have fried the power brick and I would recommend borrowing a friend's to test. This should resolve your issue.

Wii completely stops working after power outage

I just had the same problem as everyone else. I had a brief power loss and our new Wii system's power would no longer work. To fix the problem, I unplugged everything from our Wii and unplugged the power cord from the outlet. I let the system set for 10 minutes and re-plugged the power only. That did the trick. Then I was able to plug everything back up and we are now back to playing.

Supposedly, doing the steps above resets the Wii according to the Nintendo online trouble shooting guide.

Check your power cables. If everything is fine there, then you might want to consider getting a new power brick.
