Electric shock from an unplugged Nintendo wii - how is this possible

It was probably just static electricity. Sometimes the body build up static electricity by just walking on a carpet or from friction of the clothes being worn. He then got the shock when he somehow grounded himself.

So i went to turn my playstation on and it shocked me, now it wont turn on at all but the red light is still on. why wont it work anymore, is there anything i can do?

If your playstation shocked you then please immediately unplug it and have it looked at by a qualified service technician or simply replace it. When an electronic device malfunctions to the point its discharging electricity it becomes not only a shock hazard (which can be quite unhealthy) it also becomes a fire hazard which can present a danger to you and your family.

I bought my son the playstation 3 last year for christmas, hadn't had any problems until now... When he went to turn it on the light turned green for like one second and then it started blinking...

if you have had it within the year call sony playstation and tell them the problem and they will give you a reconditiond one within a couple of days, dont worry they are as good as new, it sounds like it is the YLOD yellow light of death, common with most consoles over 2-3 years old. call 0844 736 0595. they will be very helpfull.

PS2 - when my son went to turn on the console he shocked it (static) and now it won't turn on. Is there anyway to reset it?

i dont know that much about playstation but shock on a small system like that can fry it but if you unplug everything from the system for a day and plug it back in to try it this might work. Or you can get him a PS3 for christmas if you get the first version of the PS3 it can play PS2 games so you dont waste his games.
