No mods, wii still a brick
So my wife in a fit of brilliance bought and tried to use a generic unliscenced battery charger for the wiimotes. It connected to the wii via a plug between the power cord and the wii. Immediately after connecting it the wii is a total brick, no power lights of any kind. Tried resetting the power supply with no success, tried attaching a separate working power supply, no success, tried a third party power supply, still nothing. Am I going to have to send this into Nintendo, or is there something else I can try? I'm fairly handy, and not afraid to work on the wii, but admittedly electronics are not my forte.
Be kind, help a noob.
