If you haven't already you might want to try buying a plug that is for the Wii from a local store. it should only cost a couplpe of dollars. The US power supply is only capable of using 120 volt power source. By buying a power supply from the local store it should not matter where the main system is from because the power supply regulates the input power down to the required power that is ment for the game console.

My Keurig was accidentally plugged to a 220 v outlet instead of a 110. Need a repair shop located in the Philippines. . It won't operate anymore.

Chances are pretty good that you blew a fuse in the unit. I think it would be worth it for you to take it apart and check. If there is not a fuse you have lost nothing.

Wii plugged 220

Best case scenario, you fried your power adapter and just need a new one. Mild case scenario, you killed the power input fuse on the Wii's mainboard and the fuse will need to be replaced by a technician. Worst case scenario, the fuse didn't blow fast enough and your Wii's mainboard is now fried, requiring complete replacement.

You're going to have to take it to a technician for an analysis before anything else though, so you might as well start there.

It is possible that your power supply fried but everything else is still ok. Something like this could happen during a lightning storm. If you know someone with a wii, try to use their ac adapter (with a 120V adapter). If this works, then you just need a new power supply which is much cheaper.

Wii power source probably broken

Plug something else into the adapter to make sure it works, if it works you may have blown the Wii's fuse which will need repair.

Wii 110 voltage plugged into a 220 socket

Well your warranty won't cover it thats for sure. So with that bit of knowledge, locate your nearest console/modchip shop. They also do console repairs etc and should be able to repair or replace the power supply as long as the internals are ok apart from that.
