    First Dead Wii?

    After a nice LONG day of sitting outside freezing to death, I got 22 of 27 Wii's at a Wally World. Got it home, all hooked up fine. Powered right up, looked good. Put in the setup info. Went into the make my Mii editor. Made my guy, saved him. It then drops him into a room I guess where you can look at him and interact with it. I hit the B-button and WHAM. Video goes out, power light on my Wii is dead? I check everything, all looks fine. Try some other power plugs, disconnect everything for 10 minutes, hook it back up, pull batteries from controller, etc etc etc. Nada, no power to my Wii at all. WTF is this?

    Checked the AC adapter, its the right model. I don't know if its the Wii or the power brick, but its pretty upsetting to say the least. If this is a bug that kills consoles dead, thats pretty lousy QA on N's part.

    Take it back if it doesn't work. Get a replacement or money back. Wouldn't surprise me if some units are dodgey and wont work. Guess its the same with anything - some are bound to be rotten eggs.

    Really sorry to here that but even the best quality controller are bound to have some dodgy consoles that slip through. Take it back, you will probaly get one in a week or two as i would have thought u would be put on the top of the pile.

    This means you're: A Smart Gamer

    What does it mean?

    You have a good grip on the gaming world. you know what games you enjoy, you remain somewhat even in a debate through the consoles. undoubtably a "Super Fanboy" has called you a fanboy when you are not one but rather just stating facts. you are invalueable in a discussion on consoles.

    Yes, there are plenty of other things getting power from the plugs I am trying.

    Not sure on taking it back. Obviously they won't have a "replacement" in stock for me. And I don't know if they will do just a full refund since its opened. Not sure what Wally Worlds policy is on stuff like this.

    Going to take it to one of my friends and try it with their power supply and see if thats it or not.
