Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Did I fry my Wii?

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

    Hey, I had the same problem with my wii. Since it's from japan as well, when I plugged in my wii accidently without a voltage adapter, it kinda got fried (a bright blue light came out of the powerpoint... since then my wii's been off for like 3 years... Is there really no solution for this problem? I havent used it after this accident, do you know if there is a way to check if it's really beyond fixing (without any further damage to the wii)?

I can't read my wii,because I bought it in japan, can I change its language or . thus it have a subtitle???

The Japanese Wii does not have a language change option. Also, games will of course be completely in Japanese and you cannot play games in English without breaking the Wii and modding it.

It is made in china?

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.

American disc won`t play on my ps2 console in the uk all i get is please insert disc

if your ps2 is not a modded one sorry to tell you but yours is a pal ps2 (means you live somewhere in asia europe)so there is some difference i the american ps2 disc(ntsc) and pal ps2 disc both are designed to play in specific consoles so if you bought they console from ntsc territory(japan ,north america) it should work for sure but sometimes in japan and all they sell pals also but there is still chance try returning the cd to the shop and buy a pal disc or you can mod your ps2 from ps2 technicians (they are all around the world,every console shop has one) and then you can play american disc this is the only chance it will only take a small 25 bucks from you just mod it and u can play games u burned from your computer and also any pal ,ntsc territory original discs also
