Question about Nintendo Entertainment System
The adapter blew after a couple of seconds. there was a burning smell coming from the adapter but the NES had no smoke or anything coming out of it. does this mean i fried the NES or was it just the adapter? can i just buy another adapter? please help!
Most likely only the adapter fried. You can still buy the adapter for about $10 at Ebay.

As far as I know a NES can go on for a very long time if looked after properly. I still have mine with duck hunt and it works fine lol. The only way to check if it is working is to test the external power supply for the correct voltage output with a multimeter. It should be written on it somewhere what the output voltage is. Allow for +/- 2volts as this could be just meter error. If the voltage is too low suspect the external power supply as faulty. If too high it could have fried a component on the internal power supply. Hope this helps. Post on your progress.

Probably the adapter if you saw it burning from the adapter. I think you can replace an adapter from a store. Hope that helps.

gamecubes are NOT 120 volts you got that from yahoo answers other websites say 12 volts which sounds bout rite i think you need to rethink the problem and post again if that little blue box takes that many 9 volt batteries to power (just an example) then that is not a gamecube but a nintendo god (treat with care)

The adaptor SHOULD work, seeing as European SNES's use the same voltage. If you use an adaptor with a different voltage, you might need a transformer or voltage converter.

SOURCE: Wii 100v plugged into 220v
Might try a different a/c adapter from gamestop or someplace else.....If that doesnt work, it may have internal fuses that popped.....If it doesnt the its toast.
