So, I got this free Wii from a friend that I wanted to trim. He told me it didn't turn on but he didn't know if it was the console itself or the AC adapter, I hooked it up to my AC adapter and it did turn on for a while but suddenly turned off and stopped working. I unplugged everything and plugged it back in and the red LED does turn on but if I press the power button it turns yellow for a split of a second and then turns off again and won't do anything at all, I have to unplug the AC adapter and plug it back in to get the LED to turn red again but the console won't start at all. I already checked the fuse, swapped bluetooth and wifi modules from another console that works but still can't get it to turn on. I think it might be the voltage regulators but I'm not really sure how to test them, any idea how I can start troubleshooting the motherboard?
