Our power flashed yesterday while we were out (I HATE it when that happens), and the Wii wouldn’t power on again. AT ALL. It seemed completely dead, and of course my first thought was that a spike smoked it to bits (even though it was plugged into a surge suppressor). My daughter remembered that her friend had the same problem (good job Wrenny!). Turns out Nintendo told them how to solve it – just UNPLUG it for 5 minutes! Sweet. It didn’t work to unplug the power cord from the back of the Wii, you have to unplug the transformer from the wall. And yes, you REALLY have to wait 5 minutes or more! Weird. Thanks Gary! Whew!
