    Wii Problems

    Ok, here's the story, I went on a vacation to China and decided to bring my Wii. When I plugged the Wii into the Chinese outlets, the ac adapter or the Wii had a big bang noise and then the whole thing shut off. I tried unplugging everything and replugging and the outlet works fine. Listen if you are here to tell me I did wrong, do not post because I will not pay attention, I need to know what happened and how I can fix it.

    That probably happened because it has a different voltage outlet thing. Did you use a voltage convertor if not then your Wii probably done in and you will have to send it back to Nintendo, should still be in warranty just don't mention what you did and that it happended at home. Hope this helps.

    Wait, but we didn't buy a warranty because it was given to me as a gift. Also as I said I'm still in China, so do you think there will be a place I can send the Wii to?

    There's a good chance that it's just the power supply that got fried (the external grey brick). Do you know anyone else with a Wii that you can borrow their power supply just to test to see if your main Wii unit itself still works?

    I bought the Wii in America, ok so it's fried but anyways I didn't buy a warranty because I got the Wii as a gift, so would I still be able to send it to Nintendo? Also I have confirmed it's probably fried because I used a chinese ac adapter and it still didn't work.

    there is a possiblity that you just blew the converter up...

    also you may save cash by cutting it open seeing what fried and then replacing it
