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.

Wii console will not come on. There was a storm the other night and power went out but the wii was not on. Only plugged in.


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa!

Its possible that your Wii just shorted. You need to open up the console and check the fuse. Usually, the fuse is the only thing that gets damaged during shorting. If you do not are unsure how to open up your Wii, Just bring it to a local technician and have the fuse replaced. I hope this helps.

Have a nice day.

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.

Wii wont turn on


Reset your power adapter.......unplug it from the wall and wii console. Let it sit for about 2 or 3 min to reset. Now plug it back into the wii console and see if that does the trick.....Mine worked after that. If yours doesn't I would just call Nintendo.

Fried Wii


Unplug the power supply from the wii and the wall. You must unplug it from both. Wait a full 5 min. and then plug it into the wii then the wall. This resets the power supply. 9 times out of 10 this is all you have to do.
