Thank you for your time. In my country "authorised" Nintendo service said "you must buy new console", but i hope it is enough to replace motherboard in the worst case.
I downgraded system to 4.1E with step 2 and 3 of wiihacks.com giude - i chose correct region, but some channels came with NTFS K system. I updated IOSes.
And now apps give info:
USB Loader GX - "Error USB Device not found. Switching to channels list mode"
WiiFlow - "WiiFlow: Set USB Failed: -4"
When i want to boot game from CFG USB Loader i get black screen and nothing more. By chance i disconnected disk drive, and boot game with CFG USB Loader, Wii after a few moments of black screen Wii get info: "An error has occurred. Press the eject button, remove the game disk, and turn off the power to the console. Please read the Wii operations manual for further instructions."
also i found info at wiihack.com
worst case is 'burnt the usb fuse on Wii motherboard'.i tested USB ports power, both have: 4,98Vthe fuse of usb port-0 of Wii might hv been blown-off !?
i tested power adapter: 12,12V
but where are USB fuses on Wii mainboard? if anyone knows?

I look at mainboard, and from USB, paths are going directly to GPU. I appears that from the closest point long path going to bluetooth module socket. Maybe electric short went from USB to CM1 (CM2), DA7 (DA9) and damaged them (effect: no reading USB data), also damaged R161 (R162) (effect: no signal from BT module to GPU, looks like bad bt).
is anybody know what are components of Wii mainboard?
- R161 (R162)
- CM1 (CM2)
- DA7 (DA9)

I would ask bad-add84, deadlyfoez, or streamlinehd. Perhaps krafter also.

I opened again my Wii
- R161 and R162 are resistors, both 22,7 ohm, there is conduction from GPU to BT module
- from USB1 path goes to CM2 (resistor? 4,7ohm), goes through DA7 to GPU, there is conduction
- problem is with CM1, there is NO conduction, it is first components after USB0 (here was short)
I start looking for used working mainboard for replace. This is weird, i can play atari games on WiiXL, run homebrew apps, view channels banners (full animated with sound), but can not run Wii system, Wii channels, and Wii games.
By the way I tried to boot Wii without WI-FI module, there is black screen, and there it is not possible to enter Priiloader. Without BT module, or without disc drive Priiloader starts normally.

I replaced the mainboard, and softmoded it.
Everything works perfectly.
I apologize for refresh thread, but i do not know what to do with my old Wii mainboard. I put it on ebay, so my bricked / partially damaged Wii motherboard is now for sell. If anyone knows how to fix it, or want to buy for parts, please visit my listing: Bricked or partially damaged Wii mainboard
There are large pictures both mainboard sides.
