Question about Nintendo Wii Console
My niece got a Wii from the US and she turned it on in New Zealand where the power voltage in use is 240. There was a pop sound and yes, the wii would not turn on anymore. I would like to know that if I bought a new poer adapter, would that fix the problem or the whole console is a write off. Thanks for your help.
The problem is that the voltage in NZ is different (higher) than that of the USA, and the power adapter (gray box that plugs into the wall) has blown. Replace the power adapter and use a voltage converter that lowers the power to 115 (or 110/120) volts, and you should be good to go. ;)
