Game Cube Problem

By captain proton

  1. I bought a GameCube in the USA a year ago and brought it back with me to the UK. I bought a simple converter and plugged it in but nothing happened - the light didn't come on and it didn't boot up. Thinking it might be a power problem i bought the necessary voltage converter but still nothin :hotbounce

    Does anyone know what I need to do to get it working?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    I assume you did get a step down converter if so what did you set it at,
    Below is the minimum recommended power of the step down

    Gamecube - 100 Watts

    It is important that the power rating of the step down at least matches the power requirements of the console, so a 100 watt step down is the minimum requirement for a 100 watt console. However, I recommend using a step down with a power rating of at least 30% higher than the power required by the console. Nowadays, it is not worth buying a step down of less than 50 watts.

    if the setting is lower than the minimum wattage needed the converter will blow, that may be what is wrong.
