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.

Make sure the AC in the particular socket is alive (is an other device working powering from the same socket?)
try to plug the Wii in different socket in other room.
if it got voltage excess during the storm, it is pretty much dead beyond repair (the repair would be so expensive like buyin a new one)

After a power outage, my wii will not turn on


You can try a new AC adapter.If that does not work,it will need to be repaired by a Nintendo authorized center.(I used to work at one).If you do by a new one PLEASE buy Nintendo brand.The "off" brands usually end up in some kind of problem down the road.
Good luck and agme on!

Turn the monitor off.
Unplug it from the AC power.
Reconnect it, turn it on, and see if it returns to "normal".

We had a storm and now the wii will not even turn on.


Was the Wii running while the storm was going on? Was it a lightning storm? If the answer is yes to eaither one of these then most likely there was a power surge and the power supply and / or motherboard has been damaged

well 4 year Tv's are just that now and unless its Digital it may not be worth the money to repair. Lightning spikes have killed off the ppwer supply box inside. The cost of replacement is $100-$150 ( if you can get one for this model) + 2 hrs minimum fitting at $90 hour. + your transport of this to a repairer.So it may be time to see that your next and new TV is connected to an anti spike power board and when not in use or a storm is imminent unplug it anyway

Wii has no power after storm


There is a surge protection built in. Unplug it for 5 minutes then plug it back in, It should work.

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.

Good Day;

Two things normally happens after a L storm:1.) One must unplug TV for 5 minutes, then plug back in. 2.) Main glass fuse out, will be near a/c cord. 3.( Power regulator IC may be out. Try these first.

Good Luck!
