    So I was playing Grand Slam Tennis just tonight and suddenly the power came on and off , and on and off again. My USB Drive (using Loader GX) flashed back on and powered. But my Wii will not turn on anymore. I tried a few different power plug ins and nothing.

    I don't want to remod a new Wii (old one is under warranty with Best Buy) and end up with a dreaded LU64 or LU65.

    What the hell. When I finally started using this Wii over the past few months and This had to happen. Grrr

    Am I screwed or what?

    Well you may not be completely hosed. The first thing I would check is the power adapter itself. Do you have a friend/family member/coworker that also has a Wii? Ask them if you can borrow the power supply. I'd check that first. If it's just the power supply that's hosed, you may be able to work things out from there. Update us! [​IMG]

    Phew okay Update.

    Looks like I had to let the PSU sit for a bit (cooldown or reset?). She powered back up again.

    So Looks like the Power Adapter has some sort of failsafe in these events.

    Good to know for later.

    thanks

    It has a fuse in it.
    That's all.
