My Wii died.

So, I was playing Super Mario Galaxy 2, I just collected all Green Stars and ended my games with 242 Power Stars. I was about to quit, but I saved my game before leaving.
Guess what: my parents were fooling around with the electricity without telling me, and so my Wii lost power while I was saving. I hoped that my savegame did not got damaged. Though I completed the game, I still wished to have my savegame. Things seem to be worse.

I powered on my Wii again, but nothing was responding. The screen stayed black, the WiiMotes could not connect, and there was no sound. I don't know what exactly is the cause of my Wii being damaged, but it's either or my NAND is corrupted because something went wrong with writing data to it (it's doubtful, but it could happen), or my Wii has got some electricity shock. Either way, my Wii is dead and I don't have a Wii now. I thought I was having bad luck when finding out that the blu-ray drive of my PS3 was broken, and then you also discover the next day that your Wii is broken. How lucky am I?

Well, pretty lucky, because I still have my warranty for the Wii which ends in 3 days. Gonna call Nintendo, and hopefully I will get another Wii, though it's modded. Of course I get one with firmware 4.3, and I don't have LEGO Indiana Jones. I do have Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but I live in Holland (tiny little country that we all have heard of). Yippie. That means I need to rent or borrow it somewhere.

This was my first, and ''very'' intresting Blog. Have a fun time with your Wii, 'cause I miss it now already.

    Test for a failed bluetooth module, perhaps it has gone bad.

    Turning on my Wii via both the WiiMote and the POWER button left me with a black screen. Thanks for the suggestion, anyway. :)

    Well, the smash stack is really easy. It was definitely the electric shock because you were probably using a big bit of ram when the power shocked.

    Its probably the power supply, my brothers wii had the same problem(power seemes to come through but really doesnt) , but it was just a kind of fuse in the power supply (think its protection for this kind of power surges) if i remember correctly there is a little "switch" that you can flip back on the supply. Easiest to check if its this, just borrow someones power supply.

    Yes, man. My new Wii arrived this morning and I have it hacked already.
    Followed the Guide here, downgraded to 4.1 and now I pretty much have my old Wii back. :D
