    Bricked

    So the wife wanted a second wii and found a bricked one on craigslist that had no video. Figured easy enough. That was a few years ago. But anyway here is my issue....

    So I've got this bricked wii and supposedly it was not hacked in any way, now I'm trying to fix it and have read thru many threads and to no avail noting has worked.

    it power up and you can hear the disk drive spin up as if its checking for a disk normally. Just blank screen or in my case blue not black saying no signal. I've tried different cables its run thru the normal a/v.
    I'm thinking it maybe a mobo replacement but I also need to figure out which mobo I would need to make sure its replaced.

    Did it come with a controller? If it did can you power the Wii on with the controller?
    Can you sync a controller?
    If not it may be the Bluetooth module.

    If you don't have a controller to test this, I am not sure how else to test. I think there is a way.

    I have found that more than not - a Wii that has never been modded in any way and gives a black screen, is usually a hardware issue.
    Although a failed system update could brick a Wii that is not modded. It doesn't happen as often.

    It didn't come with any controllers. Got all the cables though. I do have a controller but to sync without a screen I'm not sure I can do, we do have another wii.

    My thoughts is it is either a loose or bad bt module, or bad WiFi module.

    How hard is that to diagnose or repair? A link to a thread on how to test or repair/replace?

    If you have a GameCube controller, you can try savemiifree to enter a recovery menu. If it works you will see the system version in the corner. You will then need a game disc with a higher system update on it. If this works and you install a new system menu, but still receive a black screen, it is most likely the Bluetooth or WiFi module.

    I hate to tell someone to take their Wii apart, but there isn't much you can try without having bootmii or priiloader.

    Thank you. pulled it apart reseated the bluetooth module and the wifi and nothing. Tried with both of and with just one or the other off and noting. Can hear its putting out sound cause when it starts and powers down makes my surround sound pop. Also honestly the wifi don't bother me as my router has issues with the wii's for connectivity so I run wired for them. Just got done wiring the house for cat6
