Yes that is correct
depending on the version

some use 12 and others 10
some use 5

But once you are getting power means the power supply is good
Only other cause for problem there is the board

I downloaded netflix on my computer became a member then downloaded it on my wii and did all the steps, code and everything, but it will not let me connect to it! HELP!!!

First setting to check is does your wi-fi allow Netflix. If that is all good. Then make sure you have every ounce of info right for the wii. It usually requires both the wii and computer to be on at the same time to verify it. For example when you sign into netflix on the wii it will give you a code to input on the computer. When that is done you will then have access to the netflix on the wii. Hope this helps :)

Ps3 starts up and quickly freezes at the Sony insignia part. Shut it off and restart and it freezes at the same spot.

Ensure that you are not starting PS with disk inside, if disk is scratched or bad, or PS lens is dirty you can get same problem when you start PS with disk inside.

What you should do is restart your PS3 console. To do this you should make sure your PS3 is on standby. When you have done this, press and hold the power button. You will hear 2 or 3 beeps. After you have done this, you have to change settings and hopefully your PS£ console will be working.

Easy fix. Hold down the power button on the system until it turns red. Release, and repeat. Release and repeat, only this time wait until you hear 2 quick beeps. Release quickly and then you go into Safe Mode, Choose option 5, PS3 System Restore. This will also reformat your disk. System will automatically restart when you complete the system setup. Only warning is you lose all login info and possibly content you have downloaded. You are done.

WII remote lights up but wiil not sink

Hi, Sounds like you need to check the sensor bar. Make sure it is plugged in or if you have a remote sensor bar check it's batteries. If this doesn't work you can clear the console sync info by turning off the console power, unplug the console for a few seconds, plug it back in and turn the power back on. When you get the Health and Safety screen, press and hold the console synchro button for 15 seconds. (the syncro but is the red button located in the little door on the front of the unit) Now resync your wimotes by using the red buttons in the remote battery area and on the console rather than the screen sync. If you need more help let me know as there are other things like a stuck button on a controller to look for. Oh and by the way the blue lites on the remote indicate which player is 1, 2, 3, or 4 and they have to match the player who is up and the number one player is the master controller. Good luck!

Ps3 power supply

I can sell you a power supply if interested but if you get a red light the power supply is most likely still good. You may need a new motherboard.

Wii power supply

To reset the AC adapter you need to unplug it from the wall outlet and the Wii console and wait at least two minutes. Plug it back in and it should come on. If you have it plugged in a surge protector with other appliances, the other appliances may be interrupting the adapter, causing the power to go off.

Ps2 slimline

He's right, it is a line, but it's not a big problem. If you keep playing with that wire, eventually that yellow part in your PS will come loose. It took me about 10 min. to fix mine with the same problem, and all I needed was a small philips screwdriver and a soldering iron. I bought my soldering iron for about $16 at Lowe's and it comes with batteries and soldering. First, you need to open your PS: you flip it over, pop those little square plastic covers out (only 6 of them). I used my finger nail to pop them out; now, you'll notice that there's a total of 8 of those square-type things, don't worry about the ones in front corners (right underneath Controller Port 1 and Remote Controller Receiver). Once you do all these you'll find 6 screws, so use your screwdriver to get'em out. Flip your PS over again. Now you'll be able to pop the top cover out, just be careful, it's a little tricky but you'll make it. With the cover out of the way, you can see now the inside of your PS. Try to locate a screw between the two Controller Ports, it'll need to come out. Once you get that screw out of your way, remove the bottom cover carefully; make sure you remove that board thing where the Reset/Power button lays from the cover as well. Now you have a naked PS haha. Flip your PS over locate where the power cable is plugged in (it's like a yellow square-thing). Looking at it from the bottom, try to put some presure on it with your finger and try to move just a little bit and you'll notice that one of the solderings holding the yellow thing together to the green board is cracked loose (if not both). So now it's time to get that soldering iron to work. If I recall, it'll take about 30 to 45 sec. for soldering iron to get to it's working temperature. Once it's ready to work put presure again with your finger to that yellow part and try to solder bond that cracked soldering back together. I did it by heating the soldering touching the green board so it'd hold the yellow part in place. I'm sure you'll do good, just be pacient. Use your finger again to try moving it. Once it doesn't move anymore IT'S DONE. Just get those covers back together, first the bottom one, then the screw between the Controller Ports, and last the top cover with the 6 screws and covers. Hopefully this will work for you as it worked for me.
