Question about Nintendo Wii Console
When I was playing the lights went off and then I tried to turn on the wii but it wouldn't turn on even with the plugs connected.
This should fix your problem. Disconnect all the cords from the system. You need to unplug the ac adapter/power cord from your wwi system and from the electrical socket /or power surge protecter bar. It should not be connected to any thing! Let it sit unconecteded for about 5 minutes. This should reset it. Then replug the adapter/power cord back in to electical outlet and to the wii system. Then press the power button on the wii, it should turn back on. Your problem should be fixed. Then you can replug the rest of the cords back in for the system. If this does not work I suggest that you buy a new ac adapter/power cord, there could be a short in the one you have, before you send in your system to be fixed or spend a lot of money for a new wwi system. You can buy a new ac adapter/power cord on ebay for about 5 to 10 dollors usually with free shipping. I hope that this has helped you fix the problem. Posted by Motherbowen on June 17th, 2009.

Unplug all the wires and leave nothing in your wii let it stand for 5 min

Our Wii stopped working all of a sudden on Sunday and had been switched off at the wall since then, so I was convinced it was heading for the bin. Anyway just pulled every connection from the back of it and let it totally disconnected while on school run and bingo - plugged power cable back in and now powers up !! Obviously removing the power cable totally is different from merely switching the plug off at the wall cos it worked!! FAB !!

Just happened to me, my friends were joking that I should blow into it like the old nintendos. It just happened to have been unplugged for awhile so after blowing into it as a joke and plugging it back in--it worked! Needless to say, everyone was thoroughly amused and we all played mario together happily.

If you did not have it plugged into the surge strip you may have killed your wii and if you did have a surge strip check its warranty system they will usually replace the objects plugged into the surge protector up to $1000 usually I'm not saying this is the case with your surge protector but check into it
