RROD - Red Rings of Death is so catchy . . . I wanted my own acronym, so . . .
NLOD - No Light of Death.
Got home from work yesterday, noticed the wii's indicator light was not on . . . not yellow like it should be, so I asked my wife who unplugged it and got a shrug. Later I was going to play RE4 and lo and behold . . . everything is hooked up . . . the Wii is dead. Tried their website's suggestions . . . tried other outlets, no luck. No blockage of the vents, adequate space around the system . . . I already had applied the update to cool the system off when using Wiiconnect. The last thing I had done was download the Metroid channel 2 days ago . . . so now I get to test Nintendo's customer service.
With a bricked PSP last year (due to a legitimate Sony fw update), my 360 dvd drive making chainsaw noises on certain discs (ticking timebomb) . . . and now this? My job of convincing my wife for a PS3 for XMAS, just got a lot tougher . . .
Edit . . .
I brought the console and ac adapter to work with me to call their support and plugged it in . . . and it booted up . . .
now I'm confused . . .
