Came home home today with the wife and kids complaining that the WII console wont turn on. This is a big deal since there is no school on Wednesday. A little trick I came across at the Nintendo site is unplugging the power adapter for 2 minutes. This basically resets the AC adapter, much like that of resetting a circuit breaker. Also just to be safe, unplug everything directly connected to the WII. After 2 minutes, plug everything back in and you should be good to go!
