Hi I plugged in a power supply (from different unit different plug) into the system controll port. Unit works, cd plays, i hooked up to a different amplifier music plays, when you connect to original amplifier the amp does not come on. I opened up the unit, two resistors inline with this port are blown (can't read the value of resistor) I need a schematic. I have background on servicing units just don't have access to service manuals

power issues with the Wii can be fixed by resetting the AC adapter. You can easily reset the AC adapter
by following these steps:
Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power
The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
We also recommend you unplug anything connected to the USB
ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters,
keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).
While you're waiting, check the AC Adapter for the following:
Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
Check the AC Adapter for physical damage. Physical damage, such as
frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. If
your AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be
replaced, you can purchase one from Nintendo's online store.
After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet,
not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and
stays on, then it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked.
If resetting the AC Adapter did not fix your power issues, please continue reading:
Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards,
controllers, and cheat devices. Some of these products are poorly
manufactured and may result in damage to your system. If one of these
products is attached to your system, remove it and try resetting the AC
Adapter (see above).
Check any accessories that connect to the Nintendo GameCube
Controller ports or the USB ports of the Wii -- whether licensed or not
-- for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a
cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. Remove any damaged
products and try resetting the AC Adapter again (see above).
Make sure the Wii has good ventilation. Avoid operating the Wii
while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space. If you have the Wii
placed in a vertical position,
make sure the vent on the bottom is lined up properly with the hole in
the plastic stand and no foreign material is obstructing that hole.
Check the vents on the back and side of the Wii for dust build up.
The system will shut down if it cannot vent properly to prevent
overheating. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vacuum cleaner
with a soft brush attachment.
Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a
lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the
lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using
an outlet that is operated from a wall switch. If you do, make sure the
wall switch is in the ON position.
Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC
adapter into the back of the Wii (the port is labeled 12V IN) and into a
working wall outlet (not a power strip or surge protector). Click here for detailed instructions.
Once plugged in, check the power light on the Power button to see if the system is receiving power.
Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Make sure both the controller is licensed and any accessories you are using with the controller (Rumble Pak, Controller Pak) are licensed as well. Unlicensed products may not be fully compatible with our systems.
Slide the Power Switch on the control deck to the OFF position and unplug the controller. Plug the controller back in, making sure the controller-plug is firmly inserted into socket one (on the left front ofthe control deck). Slide the power switch on the control deck to the ON position.
If possible, try another controller in the left-hand port. If you have a second controller, repeat Steps 1 through 3. If the trouble disappears, the first controller may need to be replaced. For information on locating replacements for older products, please click here.
Make sure the speaker are plugged into the "audio out" ports. Black negative, red positive.
If a dvd players or other system is hooked up, the speaker should hook into that unit, then the unit is hooked to the auxiliary port(s), or the proper ports for each unit: ex: cd/dvd should be plugged into vd/dvd; same for vcr, game system - auxiliary is for pretty much any unit not listed on the backing of the receive - however, some units will still work while plugged into the ports other than auxiliary.
Make sure the receive is selected to the desired device.
If you simply have the speakers plugged into the speaker ports, make sure the speaker themselves are still good - try hooking them up to another source such as a a dvd player equipped with surround sound or speaker adapters that will suffice your speaker wiring.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I am assuming you mean a nintendo entertainment system (NES) You Need: The gray master console At least 1 controller Power supply RF Switchbox (Must be an auto switchbox) or an A/V Cable with RCA ends
The power supply & RF switch plug into the back of the grey master unit. Hook the RF switch up to the cable connection on your TV. (If using the A/V cable - it plugs into the side of the master unit & into a video in - yellow plug/audio in - white plug) Plug in the power supply. Make sure a controller is plugged into the 1 outlet on the front. Make sure a game cartridge is inserted & locked in (You push it down). The TV needs to be on whatever channel the switch is set on if using the RF switch (Channel 3 or 4). Turn on the power & it should work
Your system's power supply cord could be faulty. it could be receiving too much current and its making your power supply think the system needs to stay on. try plugging your console into a different outlet or surge protector. if that doesnt work you will most likely have to get a new power supply cable.
you can hook up yor i pod unit directly into the back of the unit there is a special slot were it plugs into and you can use the remote to operate it once it is hooked up .you can veiw the functions from the tv in ipod mode or you can plug it in from the front lower left oped lid and plug and play
chances are if you got it from ebay there are going to be missin plugs for that unit.....and if i had to guess the two wires would be power (12v) n ground which should be red and black but differs on different cars.
