Do you know if any store in US sells this PAL system? I'll be visiting New Jersey & Chicago from End of June.

Hey Preksha,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the Nintendo Wii is currently available in both the NTSC and PAL formats. Due to fact that the U.S. primarily utilizes NTSC-format devices, the vast majority of Wii's sold through U.S. retailers most likely would be NTSC-compatible models - this would also apply to the video games sold for the console itself. Keep in mind that there may be some exceptions, but they will most likely be limited to specality stores and direct importers.

In order to ensure that a Wii purchased within the U.S. functions overseas, you would need to make sure that the TV it is connected to is capable of supporting the NTSC format and that the video game(s) purchased for the console were obtained/imported through a country that utilizes the NTSC format as well (U.S., Canada, or Japan). Unfortunately, PAL-coded games may not function in an NTSC-formatted console, and visa versa.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

There may be multiple problems with your nintendo wii if there is no picture showing your AV cable may be broke i would buy a new one if thats not it return it buy a AV cable somewhere where there is a loose return policy if this doesnt work i believe UK and Canadian electric outlets are different. And yes if none of these solutions help Canadian games can be played on a UK console. I hope this helps your problem

Error, remove disc, turn power off


In Singapore, your region is considered "Asia." The simplest way to play Wii games on a Wii from a different region was using Datel's Freeloader disc, but unfortunately Nintendo has patched their firmware blocking the use of this. There are other ways to modify your console to play games from other regions, but all carry a high pricetag and a great deal of risk, and Nintendo can patch the firmware to detect your modification and stop your system from working. You might consider importing a Wii from the UK using Play-Asia.com or a similar retailer. Best of luck!
