I don't know much about the Wii but does it have a intern or a external power supply.
If it is extern then you are lucky. Then you killed only the adapter (or the fuse within that). The Wii itself should be unharmed. You can easily buy a new adapter (isn't very expensive) or try to exchange the fuse by yourself (what is not recommended if you don't know much about stuff like this).

Ja ne.

Smell it first... Ahhh.. Dont you just love the smell of burnt circuit board in the morning? jk...

If it's still new, then why not return it first to the store where you bought it and take advantage of the warranty? Just hope that damage like that is within the coverage of the warranty, but I highly doubt it... If it's not, then just beg for a cheaper repair cost...

every wii has 1 year warranty when bought so just take it back and say you don't know what happened to it, i done it when i dropped it and said it was like that in the box, someone came to collect it next day and 3 days later, got myself a new wii

go to the shop buy a new one, put the old one in, return it and when the new one comes get your money back saying the arrival time was too long and so had to buy another console for christmas, say that you bought a nintendo ds as a replacement, im sure their smiles would be gleaming
