    Ok yesterday there was a big thunderstorm
    and i heard a big flash and everything turned off and turned back on again (PC restarted, tv, turned off, xbox turned off)
    I was not playing the wii

    but now when i try to start it, the wii has no LED
    is the power brick damaged?!
    I changed plugs around the house to see

    Got another wii and tried it but still same problem

    If it is power brick
    How would I go abouts to getting a new power brick...
    No orders online

    power pack is defiantly the problem, one buy it from ebay, or contact nintendo, i think they can sell you a new one.

    its like 70 bucks for repair/replace if your wii isnt under warranty. if your wii isnt under warranty and you know what you're doing, look for replacement parts online.

    Funny enough, I unplug my Wii every thunderstorm just because it's simple to do and I don't have to worry about things like this.

    I think the Wii has this thing where it prevents surge's by not turning on for a while after a blackout.

    Surges commonly get through surge protectors if the spike is severe.

    The Wii power supply has a circuit breaker that often trips during a power outage.

    If you leave the power supply unplugged from the wall for about 10 minutes the circuit breaker resets itself and all will be well again.

    Note: It doesn't matter if you have a surge protector or not, the circuit breaker usually still trips.
