I recently bought a Nintendo 64 console online from America and since I live in Europe I plugged it into a unit that allows the american plugin to fit into our outlet (It works fine for my girlfriend's hair-straightener and since I'm not that much of an electric-guy I figured it would do just fine).
Sadly, when I plugged it in, the entire electricity of the apartment shut down and I heard some weird noise (more of a pop) from the console, followed up with a blast of smoke.
I found out afterwards (smarty me afterwards) that our outlets are 220v but the console accepts 110v. I bought a converter but the console won't turn on.
I'm thinking that I might have fried the console.
I did a quick research where a guy seems to be experiencing what I went through but I'm concerned whether It's actually
- Just the power supply.
- Something within the console itself.
- Something fixable.
Since it's not obvious at all which answers turned out to be the problem solver.
What should I do? I'm sorry if a mechanism question isn't suitable here, just let me know.
