    UK/USA Compatible?

    I recently purchased a Wii on Ebay, I can't beleive I didn't notice that the Wii would be coming from the UK. I have received the Wii, purchased an adapter so that I can plug it in and play, and when I do, the screen has a constant scrolling, horizontal line. I can see that the screen would like me to choose a language, and also to set the date, but I can hardly read the screen with the scrolling line going constantly.
    Did I completely drop the ball and buy a system that I cannot use in the US?
    Is there anything I can do to make it work?
    I am grateful for any help you can give me, thank you.

    Yes.. unless you can find a tv that supports PAL ( 50 htz ) .. also you knackered with games also... you`ll have to buy UK ones.. US ones won`t work on your console sa per region locking..

    Thank you, I think I may cry.
    I wonder if I am best off to sell it back to the UK.
    Wow, live and learn I guess.

    how much did you pay for it ?

    thought they were a lot cheaper in the states ?

    180 retail here which is about $350.

    I have to be honest and tell you that I paid way to much, I was SO wanting my son to have one for Christmas. I paid...GBP 394.99, which is an embarrasing $766.00 here in the States.
    I think I am going to put it back on Ebay and sell it to someone in the UK. I don't know what else I can do.

    i hope u learnt your lesson boy.
    Never use ebay, i heard people put bricks in wii boxes and sell it for how many hundreds.
    Over here people are DESPERATE for wiis that are constantly out of stock so u can probably make a healthy profit selling it back to the Uk.

    Wow, YES, this girl did learn her lesson. I seriously doubt that I will do nothing but loose money in this entire endeavor. AND...I still want to get a Wii for my son. Now I have to probably pay to much for one here.

    I bought mine off ebay for 384 including shipping and insurance. On ebay they have to post their user name and receipt in a picture with the gmae. The user name must match their ebay name. Its safe for sure. U just have to pay a bit of inflated price like I did. Not 700 though
