Let me give you a little backstory: I ordered a y cable for my hdd and it just got here today. I plugged both ends of the y cable into the Wii (thinking it would finally stop my black screen for some games issue). It didnt. Then my stupid self decided to plug one end into the wall. Now when I try to turn on my wii it makes a little beep sound, turns yellow for a second and then shuts off.Heres a vid:

I guess the WIi does not have a diode preventing backfeeding current into the USB ports. But still, it's just 5V, so it shouldn't have done any damage, I thought. Was the USB wall wart a fast charging one? Maybe it got confused by the Y-cable and somehow fed a higher voltage to the Wii.
