    I think my Wii is fried :(

    Long story short, my Wii wasn't surge protected. When the power come back on, I heard a "pop" sound . It's dead.

    Does the warranty cover this kinda damage? Can I get it replaced by Nintendo?

    awe... that sucks... i would call them.

    you shouldn't tell them you suspect a surge because you really can't be sure... it could just cause you problems in getting help.

    just say it quit working the other day, you ship it in and they may determine if it's a surge or maybe something else!

    they should cover it, a $3000 60" plasma screen got surged you get around $1,000,000 or so for insurance so i'm guessing that the same concept should work and such


    Spoiler Alert!

    I learn from experience a way long time ago with a PC. I have my Wii in a UPS (battery backup). Tripplite $99 at Costco (1000 VA)

    Protects against surge, lows and irregular voltage. And even has power stored if a power loss occurs.

    Why people won't invest in even $20 of surge-suppression for their multi-hundred (or multi-thousand) dollars' worth of electronics equipment, I'll never understand.

    My TV/satellite/DVD/receiver/Wii are plugged into a surge that was worth like $70+ or so at the time. My computer is on a APC Back-UPS 650.

    Worked on a guy's computer tonight in fact, he had a surge protector but he was bypassing the 3rd prong on the power outlet with an adapter. Computer is only 2 months old or so, lost the whole hard drive.

    Remember Kiddies

    Dont skimp out on proper surge protection for your valuable elctronics. All it takes is a small surge, and your done for. so please, I urge you all, Buy either a decent surge protector or a UPS.

    This has been a friendly anouncement from brendo

    See, I was about to do that to my PC. There is a very good reason, as it eliminates the hum through your speakers at louder volumes, which is very noticable through higher quality speakers..... now you are telling me not to do it???

    What insurance company is that? to my knowledge, they cover the bare essentials of your insured product. No way would they give you almost 1000x what you payed for.
