    Have power, but no picture

    Hi, looking for some help re the wii. Bought my son one at xmas. No problems until yesterday. First of all there was a disk stuck inside, Mario Striker, which we managed to get out by sheer luck. Now, when we plug in and switch on, the wii makes a sound like its powering up, the screen flickers, but nothing else happens. Have tried two different tellys and used two different scarts and the three coloured plugs only into the side of the telly. I know I will probably have to return it, but I just thought we might be overlooking something. As we live in spain and returning faulty goods is an absolute nightmare, any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Kathy.

    • there is a weird, but rare condition that a couple members have discovered
      • unplug your wii for 5 hours / overnight (i hope this helps you)
      • click here for details
    • if you are really desperate pull the battery out also
      • it will reset your clock and calendar to 2999 (and maybe reset other configs)
      • be sure to reset your wii confg if this fixes it
      • i included a pic to find the Wii Console Button Battery
      • you will need a small screwdriver to remove the battery
    good luck, i hope this is helpful !
    it may be a little more complicated if you are using component video cables...
