Wii Bricked - Hardware Failure
So yesterday I was playing with some of my friends and and switched off. Wouldn't power on at all.
For the past 1-2 months, after I play for, like, an hour or so the Wii would suddenly switch off and wouldn't power on for 10-15 minutes. I did not think it was a major issue and thought it was due to overheating. I would then switch it on only after it was cooled down.
This happened yesterday too. I heard a small "pop" sound from the power adapter. Wii wouldn't switch on at all. Tried a new adapter. Didn't work.
I just want to know if this is repairable or not. If so, what should I check for if I open the Wii? Should I give it to my local game service shop?
I don't want it to die. Such a precious and awesome console with so many awesome games.
