    unplugged from the console, that causes the charging up of the condensator within the power supply. How could I forget this, What a joke (I have masters in electrical engineering), LOL

    I know this problem has been solved (congrats btw), but just for future reference I thought I would post a link. This has happened to me before during power outages (no LED when it was plugged in, but other cables work), and so I know that you don't always have to replace the power cord. If anyone sees this problem again, I suggest linking here first. I was going to last night, but I fell asleep soon after my last post.

    @vissen You did plug it directly into a wall outlet, right?

    You can't do that. It has to be connected DIRECTLY into the wall outlet, so that it is the only thing using the outlet. No power strips or extension cords.

    You can use it normally, but when you have an issue that requires you to unplug everything for five minutes, you have to plug it in to an outlet. Once it is fixed, you can use a power strip/extension cord again.

    That makes no sense im afraid.

    Just disconnecting it, letting what ever trips internal reset then reconnecting has always worked fine here. extension lead or not.

    Anyway, pointless argument to be starting

    I'm not trying to start an argument, just have this sorted out for future reference. I was quoting Nintendo, and speaking from personal experience when I said you have to plug it directly into an outlet once before it will work with a power strip again. It's strange that it would work okay for you, but not for me.

    For some reason this summer we had several momentary power outages, so this has happened to me a few times. Please understand that I am not saying you are wrong or lying about power strips working for you, I just can't figure out why that doesn't work for me.

    It's simply crappy engineering. I too have to unplug for a minute or two from time to time, and this was before the hacking.
