    Power Supply

    Hi Neebie here,

    The better half bought me a wii for my birthday last week and it's is
    wicked, best console out there.
    Question I have though is that when i put it on standby theres a fairly loud buzzing noise from the power supply box.
    Is this Strange or am I just being paranoid?
    Thanks
    OCJ

    I had the exact same problem!!

    I contected nintendo and they gave me an address to return it to. I sent the power supply in a small box, along with details of the problem, to the address and they sent me a new one within three days! I was impressed.

    So yeah, it shouldnt be buzzing.

    Welcome to wiichat and enjoy your stay here. Happy gaming.
    And yes, that buzzing is not normal. Send it back and get a replacement.

    The problem is most likely the transformer. Not necessarily a bad thing. A dab of hot glue or a magnet on the side (if there is room) would solve it. There might not be anything wrong with the Wii or its adapter,,, it might be bad power in your house!

    just another thought, if you still have the 30 days return policy from the place you bought it, I would take it there and get a new wii, just to play it safe it is nothing else

    I agree with Mau. The store will give you a brand new system while Nintendo is giving out repaired/refurbished units.
