    ok... last night i installed some new homebrew apps on beta 8. most didnt work so i took em off. i then played one of my injected vc games. it played fine. after that i looked through my save files and back up channels on my sd card (just to kinna gloat). then i turned my wii off with the wiimote from the main menu, and went to bed.

    i had a bunch of stuff to do today and just got home to find my wii with no light on the power button. i figured, i have kids, maybe one of em unpluged it, not the case. so i took all mem cards, gc controllers, and my sd card out of the front out. then i unpluged it and pluged it back up. still no light.

    so i guess my question is, what the hell did i do and will nintendo fix it? i still have like a year and a half on my warrenty and a year on the extended. please help!!!

    Try plugging it into a different location. If it still does not light up, your Wii could be dead. Was there a lightning storm at all in your area? Surges could kill the system.

    If your system is modded, forget about getting it fixed; you voided your warranty AND extended warranty when you got it opened and modded it... well considering you're using homebrew and injected games, I'm assuming it's modded. You might be SOL bro.

    Just remember if you installed any type of homebrew on your Wii that kills your warranty. Before anything make sure you have the Wii plugged into the wall directly. From Nintendo.com



    "No Power

    1. Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
    2. Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards, controllers, and cheat devices. Some of these products are poorly manufactured and may result in damage to your system. If one of these products is attached to your system, remove it and try resetting the AC Adapter (see below).
    3. Check all accessories, licensed or not, for phsyical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. Remove any damaged products and try resetting the AC Adapter (see below).
    4. Make sure the Wii has good ventilation. Avoid operating the Wii while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space. If you have the Wii placed in a vertical position, make sure the vent on the bottom is lined up properly with the hole in the plastic stand and no foreign material is obstructing that hole.
    5. Check the vents on the back and side of the Wii for dust build up. The system will shut down if it cannot vent properly to prevent overheating. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vaccum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.
    6. Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch. If you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position.
    7. Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC adapter into the back of the Wii (the port is labeled 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet. Click here for detailed instructions.
    8. Once plugged in, check the power light on the Power button to see if the system is receiving power.

    If this fails, try resetting the AC adapter.

    1. Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, memory cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, hookup cables, the AC Adapter, and Sensor Bar) from the outlet and Wii.
    2. Let the system rest for about 90 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that controller cords, AC Adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
    3. After the 90 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and wall outlet. Check to see if the power light on the Power button comes on.


    * If the system works, plug ONE accessory into your system starting with the Sensor Bar, then turn the system on to see if it still works. Repeat this process with ONE accessory at a time. If your system doesn't work once you put a particular accessory in (Sensor Bar, GameDisc, Nintendo GameCube controller, Memory Card, SD Card, etc.), there may be something defective with that accessory.
    * If the power does not come on, a repair will be necessary. Because it is not possible to determine which item (Wii console or A/C Adapter) needs repair, please call our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options, or click here to e-mail us.

    9. If the power is still continually shutting off regularly, please click here for repair options."

    That's gotta suck badly. Well, all I think you could do is try that guide.

    Homebrew won't void your warranty as long as Nintendo never finds out. Change the day to way far or way behind and they won't bother to look through the played data. And rid of all your homebrew for now, which you can't turn on... Sorry, but still, just e-mail them first for some advice.

    Do you have any friends with a wii? Maybe you could try their power brick, or your brick on theirs - then you'll know if it's the console or the brick that is borked.

    Yay!

    Seems to be a fairly standard thing these days on power supplies... if there's any kind of nasty power going on they just shut off totally - and unplugging for a while resets them.
