    help. i've blown it up!

    hi folks. i bought a wii in new york this week. fine. brought it back to uk today. stupidly bought a crap step down converter from the airport. should've waited and got a better one. when i plugged it in there was a 'pop' and my wii has ablsolutely no life. do you reckon it's the ac adapter thats ruined or is my wii knackered? i have been out and bought a top quality usa/uk converter but still no life. damn!

    it will be your wii that is broke... the ac adapter is a step down transformer in it's self and will step down the amps a certain amount, now because you used a crappy adapter before hand, it sounds like it hasn't step down enough, and you frazzled a few things.

    Even if you had got a decent adapter, the Wii IS region locked, USA is NTSC and Europe and Austrailia are PAL, this means that the Wii you bought in america will work in america but not europe! So your really silly not to of checked this before hand and your basically screwed now unless you can get it back to america. But on the other hand nintendo's customer service is great so you need to contact them not us!!

    the power difference is what got you....aren't your outlets 220V and ours 120V


    also every game you want you will have to import from the usa

    just get a wii from your area
