    I only got that once, and that was from thinking i turned my Wii off and left it on all night. Just unplug the power to it and wait a little. Stick the plug back in and you should be good to go.

    Might as well get your new system. Do you get sound but no video?

    are you making sure to hold the power button?

    It works like a computer, you don't just press the button to power it off, you have to hold it until it does power off.

    You have to hold the power button down for a second or 2. Nintendo woundnt want people turning their Wiis off in the middle of a game.

    in other words you just realized it was because you weren't holding down the power button.

    So is your signature out of date, because according to it, you don't have a wii to even be testing this on.

    And you cannot power it off when it is loading or trying to connect to something.

    no no i can get my wii to work and turn on sometimes (mainly when i turn it on manually) but the feature of using the wii remote to power it on or off doesnt work all the time. So im awaiting a replacement as wii speak

    He probably has a Wiimote but no Wii. He may be talking about his TV. . .in that case, he nees to know that although the Wiimote Looks like tv remote, it is not and does NOT work with the TV.
