I sent a wii abroad to some relatives of mine. Initially they just connected it into the wall and soon discovered that it doesn't work because of the differences in voltage output. So I sent them a transformer with automatic watt regulation and a new power adapter because they probably fried they original adapter. Now they report when they turned on the wii the red LED flashes on and turns off and the wii doesn't start up. Any guesses as what might be going on. I doubt the actual wii is fried.
