    The red led probably has a loose connection.

    Is mine the only 1 that's yellow when I switch it off. Perhaps there is a loose connection internally.

    I wouldn't say that. The Wiis leds (power or drive slot) can easily break without effecting a complete hardware failure. A friend of mine has been playing on a Wii with a broken drive slot led for two years and his Wii still works.
