SOURCE: Playstation 3 power supply

if it does not turn on then its the power supply.. make sure you get a power supply matching your ps3.. the 60gb models have chrome like housing the 40gb have a dull grey color .. different wattage used means different supply is needed.. if you need more help let me know

SOURCE: wii won't come on

Unplug the Wii for at least 5 minutes to 'RESET' the Wii console.

Then plug it back in and try it.

Does the Wii show a yellow light ?

You can get a power adapter for the 64 that will drop the voltage for you. You will also have to get an video converter box that will convert NTSC to PAL B/G. You should be able to get a traveler power kit that should have what you need. The adapter should convert the power down. Don't use just the adapter unless the 64 says it can handle a 240v power. the usa use a 110 to a 120 power grid and Spain use a 240v power grid.
The retron 3 wont play nintendo 64 games. It olny will play nes snes and sega genesis games.

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.

I don't know a lot about this console (the Retron 3), but the game sounds like it works fine, try using a different third-party console, I recommend the Retro Entertainment System, it's only around $20 - $25 on eBay, try a different NES game, if it doesn't work, than it's probably the controllers, get replacements, or the batteries are dead.

TV was on, heard sizzling sound from back of set, smoke came out and quickly dissipated, turned off . . . afraid to turn back on. is it fried? how can i check?


More likely to have burnt out power supply module, leave it unplug!. You need to look inside at the power supply module (the part where the power cord is attached to).

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

this could be your power brick being faulty and letting to much power through to the xbox and earthing it through the TV resulting in the TV frying.
try changing your AV cables from the xbox to TV and your power brick and leads going to the console

I don't want to sound mean or condescending but if you're good enough to repair what is wrong with that monitor you wouldn't be asking someone in here how to fix it. You just don't go pick up a soldering iron and start fusing parts in a monitor if you even find the parts at the local Radio Shack. If you smelled smoke and it doesn't come back on it's fried.
