Wii Wont Turn On Help
It's a dark moment in your life when you need some help because your Wii won't turn on. The Nintendo Wii is your friend and it has betrayed your loyalty by keeping dark and silent, mocking you with a vacant stare. However, there are a few things you can do before going into a deep, spiraling depression. Basically, if your Wii won't turn on, it is either broken because it was abused or the source of power is not connected. Thankfully, the latter is easy to fix.
If your Wii won't turn on and you need help, you may need:
- Phillips screwdriver
- The obvious stuff first. Before you cry for help, you have to try the obvious stuff first when your Wii won't turn on. Is it plugged into the outlet? Is it plugged into your Wii? Is the Wii plugged into your TV? If yes, test the outlet with something you know works like a vacuum cleaner and suck up all that cigarette ash and Dorito crumbs. If the outlet works, proceed to the next step.
- The official way. When your Wii won't turn on, Nintendo has outlined a plan you should try. Unplug the Wii AC adapter from the Wii and the outlet. Let it rest for two minutes. This allows the unit to reset. Now plug the Wii adapter in a wall outlet. This usually does the trick.
- End user trick #1. Luckily there is an odd fix that has merit because it actually works. Unplug everything and leave it alone for at least five hours. Plug everything back in and pray. No one is sure why, but the rest seems to allow the Wii to reset itself.
- End user trick #2. This is for when you are desperate because the Wii still won't turn on and you are ready to buy a Playstation 3 as revenge. Unplug your Wii, flip it over and unscrew the battery compartment. Pull it out and put it back in. Plug everything back in, pray to Mario and turn it on. Some people suggest that you can also replace the battery, but don't bother. The only way that battery is dead is if you fried your Wii. If you did, a new battery won't help you at all.
- If your Wii is still under warranty, you can try to contact Nintendo to help. They actually have a pretty decent customer service department.
