Question about Nintendo Wii Console
I'm a an American living in China, and I just bought a Wii rated for use in Japan (the store recommended this so that I would be able to play it in the US as well). I plugged the Wii into my voltage converter, heard a small pop, and now the Wii won't turn on anymore. The travel converter still works, so the problem is definitely within the Wii. Did I ruin the whole system, or maybe just the AC adapter?
Well first you should try using a different adapter or test yours by plugging it in the wall and putting a tester probe in each of the two holes,if it says between 110 and 120 it works.I dont know much about wiis but it is possible that there is a fuse for overcurrent protection iside the unit.If you feel confident you can remove the casing and inspect the area close to where the plug goes in and see if there is a small glass tube with a filiment inside,if so the filiment should be intact,also check to see if there is any blackening or smoke damage inside the circiut bourd if there is you know you fried it.I hope this helped.Please leave feedback as I am trying to start making money at this.Thank you
