Bricked Wii without history
I recently bought a used wii (US version) in good faith without actually testing it prior to buying it. The seller swore he just tested it before coming out... well as it turns out, some people do not always tell the truth.
Since the seller refuses to answer my attempts to contact him over the past days it is impossible for me to provide any information of what may have caused the wii to brick.
All I can do is provide what little information I have;
Upon pressing the On button the LED turns green and the drive flashes blue once then all activity seizes. At no point is there any picture or sound to be found. The disc drive accepts and ejects discs. I can not turn on the wii using either of the two remotes.
I have tested all external components on a working wii and both wiimotes work as does the sensor bar and component cable. However, the power adapter is defective. Could lightning have fried the adapter and the console? and would the wii power on at all if that was the case?
The seller said the wii was not chipped nor modded in any way to play copy games. And since the only games that was included where genuine ones, that seems like it could have been the truth.
Any help would be much appreciated!
