Wii dead after touching contact behind Power Button ...
While my wii was disassembled, I tried to power it on by pressing the power button with a screwdriver but I slipped just slightly and barely made contact with the metal behind the plastic button. I suspect the screwdriver may have also contacted the led and short circuited. The wii will not turn on anymore ... it's just dead.
Has this happened to anybody else? Any suggestions on how to troubleshot/fix or is it toast?
Wii power supply - problem solved
Gmodz put me on the right track. After googling power supply issues, I found a Nintendo troubleshooting site. Turns out the Wii power supply has an internal reset ... just unplug for 90 seconds. I did this and the power came back.
