I'm a an American living in China, and I just bought a Wii rated for use in Japan (the store recommended this so that I would be able to play it in the US as well). I plugged the Wii into my voltage converter, heard a small pop, and now the Wii won't turn on anymore. The travel converter still works, so the problem is definitely within the Wii. Did I ruin the whole system, or maybe just the AC adapter?
Well first you should try using a different adapter or test yours by plugging it in the wall and putting a tester probe in each of the two holes,if it says between 110 and 120 it works.I dont know much about wiis but it is possible that there is a fuse for overcurrent protection iside the unit.If you feel confident you can remove the casing and inspect the area close to where the plug goes in and see if there is a small glass tube with a filiment inside,if so the filiment should be intact,also check to see if there is any blackening or smoke damage inside the circiut bourd if there is you know you fried it.I hope this helped.Please leave feedback as I am trying to start making money at this.Thank you

Your watch is not fake. Japanese are employing workforce in China, Thailand and other countries, because labour there is much cheaper then in Japan. However, quality checks are of Japanese standards and your watch is exactly the same if it would be made in Japan. Rate me, plz.
OMG!!!! well yeah... bad news for you who bought Japanese and Chinese consoles. It's most possible that there isn't english language in there. Even if there is, all your games won't be in English and you'd have to buy games only from Japan only due to the region lock.
And with that, I advice you people not to buy Wiis from other regions no matter how cheeper they are. It will spell trouble later when trying to play the console or find games.
