Virgin Wii Turns off after 30 Seconds
I bought this Wii in July of last year from a liquidation sale. My cousin just started helping me out with Wii drive changes and basic repairs. We found one that turns on for exactly 26 seconds before shutting off. The video instantly goes out after 1 second though(I got it to stay on one time long enough to see the introduction Wii setup screen when you first turn on a formatted Wii), but the power cutout after 26 seconds, and I can't get any video now. I can sync remotes with the Wii, but I can't power the Wii on and off with the remotes, and I have to resync every time I power on for those 26 seconds that I have. I'm wondering if the Wii is losing power when the current reaches a fuse, capacitor, or resistor after that time. I'm also curious why the video won't show up anymore as I've never seen a brick that shuts down the Wii(light goes from greenish yellow to red after 26 seconds).
I have another Wii that instantly shuts off(red light turns yellow, the disc drive blue light flashes, and then no light at all after 1 second). I swapped drives, but that didn't do anything. Is this another fuse issue that needs to be tested with a multimeter?
