Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Storm last night, now Wii won't power up

We had an electrical storm yesterday afternoon. When my son went to play Wii this morning, the console won't power up. The system is plugged into a surge protector. No other components plugged into the surge protector seem to be damaged. I've tried plugging Wii into another outlet, still nothing - no lights of any kind come on. There is still a disc in the Wii console and I can't get it to do anything. Please help!!!

Unplug everything! There is a "breaker" in the power supply and it may need to be reset. Just unplug all cables from the TV and outlets. Let it sit for a couple hours then plug everything back in and it should work fine. If not then the power supply has shorted out due to a strong power surge. You can claim it under your home owners insurance or call Nintendo and try to get it replaced. Thanks! Good luck and happy gaming!!

Wii wont turn on, nothing had a lightning storm last night and now nothing


Try replacing the power cable, many times when there is a power surge and you do not have a surge protector it will burn out the transformer on the power cord. If you replace it and still nothing, most likely your Wii has been burned out by a power surge.

No power


Well no because i just had a terrible storm too and my WII went off when i was playing it too so it all depends how long you have had your WII and if so if someone messed with the console.
