Hello there people,well as you already read the title you probably knew that i want to hook the US Wii (living where the power standard is 220V) to the PS3 Power Supply (40 GB models,APS-231),but when checking with multimeter i got no where on the main power output(those too "leg" connectors),they show 0V.
So it probably need some pressure(some electronical device which draw some Wattage)to run but now is 1:06AM and i want to go sleep and tomorrow is a long day so cant try right now hook up to the Wii....
Wii input is 12V so that's no problem,i just need the PSU to output these 12V all the time without anything else hooked up.
By that i mean like on the PC ATX Power Supply's(when you short the green and black wire on ATX PSU they work instantly as long as they connected to the wall,video which can help understand is provided in information section).
So by that i mean in conclusion:
1.I want to boot my Wii with PS3 Power Supply,would connecting the Wii to the power supply run the system instantly with no bridging(without modifying) ?.
2.If it wont let run the system...what i need to do\bridge for it to run the Wii?,or other 12V,5V demanding devices.
Wii input is:12V,3.7A,52Watts.
PS3 Power Supply Is: (12V,5V),12V outputs 23.5A and 5V outputs 0.6A (i need only 12V) this is what i know for sure .

Power supply "front" connector pinout(the 5 wires),(Credit to User Kyleg001 from sister site):
1 = 12V power on/off(don't mess with!)
2 = 5V return
3 = 5V return
4 = +5V
5 = +5V
Thanks for anyone who want to help and enchant our knowledge on the PS3,when ill finish this project i will upload guide on how to use PS3 Power Supply on other 12V,5V demanding Devices .
sorry for this too much reading.
