Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
Without reading i plugged my wii in a 220v outlet, the wii worked for many hours but at midnight something "popped" at the adapter. what to do? im from philippines
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.

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

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.

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