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.

SOURCE: What will happen if it is plugged into a 220 volt AC

Hi there, it depends where you got your Wii from.

if your Wii was from japan or another country which uses only a 110v AC power supply then you could have either blown some fuses inside the wii or at worse you could have fried some of the internals.

First of all find out which adapter you where supplied with, check the voltage rating on the adaptor. if it is a 110v adaptor then you may need to have your Wii replaced.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Wii got pluged to a 220 volt outlet

I'm going to go ahead and say it probably fried the Wii. I would maybe try getting a new adapter either way if it's at reasonable cost and see if it works again though.

SOURCE: Wii plugged to 220v oulet. Burning plastic smell on adapter only.

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

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.

10,000 watt generator 220 plug doesn't work


Most generators have several circuits incorporated within the windings. There are usually two 115v windings, one or two windings that produce power and sensing voltage for the regulator that supplies power to the armature (produces magnetic force) and sometimes a 12v winding to supply power to charge the battery. The two 115v windings power one 115v plug each and together power the 220v plug. Each outlet has a breaker and or ground fault. Since the 115v plugs are working indicates that the 220v plug must have an open/broken wire or faulty breaker. Easy to check, however you must open cover to wiring compartment and trace wires. Should be easy fix. You do not have to start engine to find broken wire. Use ohm meter instead. With engine off, Insert probes into 115v plug and obtain ohm reading. Then insert probes into second 115v plug and obtain similar reading. Look for same reading at the 220v plug (remember 2 circuits of 115v, ground and neutral). Good luck with your repair and email if you have other question.

I have plugged wii in 220 volt recepatacle though it was 110 volt what to do


Hello,

There are two possible scenario's when you accidentally plug a 110V device in a 220V outlet:
1: The power supply to the device you plug in gets fried. this is your best case scenario. See if you can borrow a Wii power supply from a friend and test your console with this power supply. If this works, you just need a new power supply and all is well.
2. Your Wii gets fried. Worst case scenario: your Wii got fried. If it is still in warranty, see if they will cover this damage under the manufacturer warranty, if not, I am afraid you will either need to pay for repairs or buy a new console.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but plugging a 110V device in a 220V outlet generally will fry one thing or the other or even both.

Thanks for using the FixYa forums!

Plugged 4w 120v trimmer into 220v outlet with a 50-2000w 220-110v coverter - it blew fuse and doesn't work. soldering melted off wire inside


scrap the trimmer...
probablly damaged beyond cost of new one

a step down transformer would have been a better choice than a voltage converter ( not trying to be a wise guy here)..
