    Wii doesn't turn on

    My wii doesn't turn on. It has been off (unplugged) for the last three days and today I turn it back on and it doesn't work. The light doesn't come on either. I'm thinking it might be the battery or ac adapter, but im not sure. Any suggestions?

    In Australia, Nintendo service sucks!!

    I am currently on hold with Vic Consumer Affairs (God help me!!)

    Nintendo's head office is in Vic by the way.

    My Nintendo WII would not turn on so I went through the trouble shooting on their website.
    I then tested my power adapter in a friend's wii and it would not turn on.
    I then tested his power adapter in my wii and it did turn on.

    So it is the power adapter at fault.

    I then called Nintendo's warranty line and asked for any extra trouble shooting advice (they had none, just confirmed what I had already done) and warranty information (what to send in, what details of mine, what address, etc).

    I followed her instructions and sent it in.

    Now I am told that there is no fault.
    With these power adapters you sometimes need to unplug them from the wall for a period (such as 1 hour) then re-plug them back in.

    I asked why this was not on the website for trouble shooting or why the person on the phone didn't suggest it.

    No idea why - but I have to pay a fee.

    I am now refusing. Nintendo will not let me escalate further and will not lodge a complaint. I pay or they destroy the power adapter and move on.

    PLUS the woman said I was lying about not being told about the possibility of a fee if it is not a warranty issue. I told her I recall the conversation and I was not told - plus I always refuse those fees (And once spent 2 hours in a Telstra store while the customer rep found a repair agent who would not make me sign a piece of paper saying I would pay).

    Keep in mind - I always perform as much trouble shooting as I know how or the company will tell me before sending an appliance in for warranty. But I will not pay a fee if there is a warranty.

    Opinions?

    Unusual Problem

    My wii recently stopped working. When I turn it on it just stays at the warning-safety screen. It doesn't ever say press a to continue. I can turn it off and on with my wiimote and with the console. I have tried to unplug the power and wait, still nothing. If anyone has any info I would appreciate it alot.

    hi everyone,last month weird sort of dotted lines suddenly appeared on screen,it is almost like some pixels have gone but this is not the case as it is a new tv and i have tried it on another tv aswell.i also thought it could be something interfering with the picture but i have turned all other electrics off and even tried it at the other end of the house,also these lines/pixels appear in certain places at certain times e.g on the wii menu screen it is always worst in the bottom left hand corner,therefore i know it is not a problem with the game.also on some virtual console games the picture goes black in places and the picture just doesnt display properly, im sure this is linked as i noticed both problems at the same time PLEASE HELP,thanks.

    Hi, New to the forum, and I'm not a techie, so I would appreciate some help. My daughter got a wii for Christmas and she played wii sports constantly. All of a sudden, none of the games on wii sports allow the mii to swing. i.e. in Bowling, the ball pretty much just drops and slowly rolls down the lane. In golf, tennis and baseball, the mii doesn't swing the bat, club or racquet. It seems like it would be a sensor problem, but another game she has, AMF bowling, works fine as do other games we rented. Can you give me any suggestions as to why this is happening and if there is anything we can do to fix it?

    Wi Fi Tempermental

    Hi Everyone. I turned on my Wii last night and downloaded the new update...no problem. I tried to get into the Wii Shop and it timed out. I tried again...same thing. So I tried other Wi-Fi programs. I could get into the Forecast channel and the internet channel no problem. The news again timed out. Any ideas as to why this might be happening?

    Remotes not working

    After three months of almost constant use, the 2 standard wii remotes I have, have suddenly stopped working. Both are fully charged via a remote charger (lights flashing to suggest complete) but they are not being picked up by the system at all. The lights on both remotes are doing all the usual flashing but as I say nothing is happening.
    I've done all the usual stuff, .e.g turned the thing off and then back on, tried to sychronise via the hard drive and remotes but nothing.
    It has been suggested to me that the remotes need replacing but find it hard to believe that they have both broken at exactly the same time.

    Any advise or anyone with the same issue?

    Thanks in advance

    Steve
