I brought my Wii to Turkey and can't get it to work with a 220v to 110v 100w converter. Do I need more watts on the converter to get it to work? Is there a specific converter I need? Thanks ,John Denison

You have most likely cooked the Wii itself, To check connect the correct power adapter to the correct system and in the correct power source ( 120v or 220v ) if it works all good if not you know you cooked it. If you are unable to test in this manner have it checked by a qualified technician.
In case you brought it from US and didn't use a manual stabilizer to bring down the voltage to 110 and plugged it in India in that case the power supply for the wii is blown and you would need to get it repaired because in India the voltage used is 220 V as compared to US and some other countries where the voltage is much less than 220V.
Hey Erolon, Nintendo Wii's sold within the United States will primarily be NTSC-formatted devices. Unfortunately, because Europe utilizes the PAL format instead of NTSC, you would need to have an NTSC-compliant TV in order to use a Wii purchased within the U.S. Please also keep in mind that video games are often region-coded to work only with the consoles sold in the same area of the world. In other words...if you were to purchase a Wii within the U.S., you would only be able to play video games purchased within the U.S. as well. Additionally, remember that the United States and Europe use different electrical standards: 110V/60Hz for the U.S. and 220V/50Hz for Europe.In order for any electrical device purchased within the U.S. to function properly overseas, a voltage adaptor may be required. Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead. Use Us.
