Wii fried in an electrical storm

I lent my game system to my cousin and they had an electrical storm and the system is fried. What do you think the best option to fix this is? I am assuming their homeowners insurance will cover this but has anyone tried to make a claim? Do I have to buy a new console? Thanks

    Mine also stopped working after our power flickered out! We had to unplug and plug it back in several times before it started working again!

Hey Sorry for your loss, But I don't think you can fix it for cheap this kind of repair will be expensive and I wouldn't count on it either. Your best option is to buy a new one and make a claim Tom

Our Wii had the same thing happen to it, and after unplugging and replugging it back in, and it began to work, see if that's your problem, before replacing it and wasting boatloads of cash.

No power after storm


You will need to replace it. The storm fried your board for sure, there is no fix for that, and a broken board is useless. you can't really put it back together because the entire surface of an electornics board is conducting electricity through it from component to component. If it could be fixed, it will surely cost you more to fix than buy a new one. Sorry to be the bad news bearer but it is shot, you are left with a giant paperweight.

My xbox360 Elite was wont even turn on...???


Hi Bruce,

This is something well out of our pay grade-- my guess is that the electrical storm fried your hardware and completely ruined the machine.

Your best bet at getting a replacement would be to contact Microsoft directly and explain the situation to them. You can do this by clicking here.

Xbox wont turn on after storm


You had a power surge, I recommend you invest in a surge protector power strip. Your 360 may be fried the best thing to do is have it fixed professionally which will cost you. It would probably be cheaper to get a new one unless you have a warranty.

Assuming that your fax worked before the storm and stopped working afterwards, I don't think there's much you can do if the storm fried the circuit board. You could try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer to see if the storm did something to the configuration settings, but I suspect a power surge damaged the fax modem in the machine.

If it's still under warranty, you could call the place where you bought the printer and see what it would take to fix it. I suspect having it repaired out of warranty would be more expensive than it's worth.

If your router got fried during a storm, then its not going to come back on. So, its basically useless now. You will have to out & by a new one.

Fried Wii


Unplug the power supply from the wii and the wall. You must unplug it from both. Wait a full 5 min. and then plug it into the wii then the wall. This resets the power supply. 9 times out of 10 this is all you have to do.
