My Nintendo Gamecube received a big powersurge and now it won't turn on. Is there any hope for it or is it fried ?


  • No Power
    1. Make sure that the words "Nintendo GameCube" are molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
    2. Make sure the Nintendo GameCube has good ventilation. For best results, make sure that the system rests on an open, flat surface. Avoid operating the Nintendo GameCube while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space.
    3. Check the vents on the sides of the Nintendo GameCube for a build-up of dust. The system will shut down if it cannot vent properly to prevent overheating. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vaccum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.
    4. Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards, controllers, and cheat devices. Some of these products are poorly manufactured and may result in damage to your system. If one of these products is attached to your system, remove it and try resetting the AC adaptor (see below).
    5. Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch. If you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position.
    6. Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC adapter into the back of the Nintendo GameCube (the port is labeled DC 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet.
    7. Press the power button on the Nintendo GameCube and check to see that the red power light on the top of the Nintendo GameCube illuminates.

      If this fails, try resetting the AC adapter.

      1. Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, memory cards, and all controllers), hookup cables, and the AC adapter from the outlet and Nintendo GameCube.
      2. Let the system rest for about 45 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that the cords on the controllers, AC adaptor, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables (or RF Switch) are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
      3. After the 45 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and wall outlet. Press the power button to see if the system works.


        • If the system works, turn the power off and plug ONE accessory into your system, then turn the system on to see if it still works. Repeat this process with ONE accessory at a time. If your system doesn't work once you put a particular accessory in (GameDisc, controller, Memory Card), there may be something defective with that accessory.
        • If the power does not come on, a repair will be necessary. Because it is not possible to determine which item (Control Deck or A/C Adapter) needs repair, please call our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.

    8. If the power is continually shutting off after aprox. 30 minutes, listen to hear if the fan is working while the system is powered on. If the fan is not running, the problem will continue (Nintendo GameCube is avoiding overheating) and the system will need repair.

  • Power Light Flashes
    If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair.

    Wii console power light is not on. The console is plugged in.


    Try the following (this was taken from Nintendo's website and the following link

    http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/power.jsp
    1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).
      acunplug.png
    2. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
    3. We also recommend you unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).
    4. While you're waiting, check the AC Adapter for the following:
    • Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
    • Check the AC Adapter for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. If your AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be replaced, you can purchase one from Nintendo's online store.

    After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked.

    Also, see if you have a friend that has a Wii, and try their power cord on your unit. You may have a faulty cord.

    Good luck.

    Super nintendo turns on but not picture or sound


    if you've tried 2 other super nes' and still no picture and sound.. don't you think it's the "yellow,red,white" cables that might be an issue? doesn't sound like a power cord is the issue at all if it's getting power to the "red light".... get a new y,r,w cable (sry.. tired and forget the name)

    No Power
      Most power issues with the Wii can be fixed by resetting the AC adapter. You can easily reset the AC adapter by following these steps:
        1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip). acunplug.png
        2. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
        3. While you're waiting, unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, memory cards, hookup cables, and Sensor Bar). Remove all of these from the outlet and the Wii.
        4. Also check to see that controller cords, AC adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed and do not have exposed wires. If you find any frayed cords or exposed wires, you should replace those parts.
        5. After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. Check to see if the power light comes on.
        6. If the system works, plug the Sensor Bar into your system, then turn the system on to see if it still works. Repeat this process with one accessory at a time. If your system doesn't work once you've connected a particular accessory (Sensor Bar, Game Disc Nintendo GameCube controller, Memory Card, SD Card, etc.), there may be something defective with that accessory.

    We can't get the console to turn on


    I have a gamecube, there is no place for batteries anywhere. Make sure your power cords are plugged in the right place and in there nice and snug so they dont jiggle or move at all. If you still can't get your gamecube to power on it could be time to trash it or send it in for repair. Contact Nintendo if my advice didn't help. here is their number: 800-255-3700 This is a direct repair and troubleshooting line. Best of luck! Hope I helped!

    Can we play gamecubegames inside the wii console, if so how?


    You can do both. With internet you can download Nintendo 64 games on the wii shop channel. For game cube games enter the controller in slot one, enter the game and it's like you don't have a wii!

    Note: due to the fact the the wii remote does not have enough buttons ALL N-64 games need a gamecube controller or a classical controller. Game Cube games are not compatible with classical controllers.

    HELP


    does the console turn on(lights) any sound , I'am going to guess no, if you have a gamecube or snes with rca cables use those and see if it works,the rf adapters for gamecube and n64 are cross compatabile as well, however the one for snes isn't the same, you may just need another cable, also try setting the tv to ch.3/4 and if you have more than one coaxial input try changing to another , if the console is not turning on then it may be a bad power cord or the mem pak isn't seating right or the console has died, most likely the rf switch has died thought, rca will last longer anyway, either go get one from a local gamestore or if you cant find one for 64 get the gamecube cords they have the same connector on the console end. Hope that helps
