    Freezes on Health and Safety Screen, No Press "A"

    Hi guys,

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    In addition to the freezing on Health and Safety screen sometimes it just displays the System Files are corrupted message.

    I bought the thing broken hoping to fix it because I had heard the "System Files Corruted Error" is easy to fix. But now I've got that locking up on the safety screen too.

    I found a few guides on fixing these issues here, but they usually invole having priloader or something installed previously and I'm not sure what this Wii has as it won't boot. How do I proceed if I assume the Wii is virginal?

    Thanks again.

    You can check for priiloader by holding the reset button in while powering up the wii. Keep it pressed until you see priiloader or the wii starts (in your case that will be the frozen press a screen or the system files corrupted message).

    Thanks, I tried that a few times and it's still consistently locking and safety screen, no press "A". I did however find a link to this on here, which is super awesome: SaveMii - Wii Troubleshooting

    So I tried booting a game and no go, so looks like I got a Full Brick and need a SaveMii to continue troubleshooting. Is that right?

    I heard you can use a GC controll as a Save Mii by pressing all directions, can it be done without dismantling the controller? Also, how will I know if I can get newer firmware if I can't boot this bad boy? What if it already has the newest firmware? Do I just fail?

    Thanks again for all your help.

    We have instructions for savemii on the site. Im pretty sure you need to take the controller apart, but i have never needed to use savemii so im not sure. When you get savemii towork it willshow you the system menu the wii is on, cross your fingers and hope it is lower than 4.3.

    Press all 4 directionals at once. Aftermarket controllers are easier and can usually be done w/o dis assembly. Stock dis assembly required.

    This can be fixed, only question is how much is it going to cost. Savemiifrii should work without issue, so get a gc controller and do savemiifrii, if it does not work dismantle it and remove the pin below the dpad and try again. Once savemiifrii load the Recovery menu you will know what version the system menu is. If it is an older system menu you could try disc update to a higher system menu, this may or may not fix the issue (possibly not). Everything else will require a modchip and compatible wii dvd drive or a wode, unless the wii was modified with cioscorp/darkcorp allowing backup disc loading without a modchip. Corp is easy to test, just burn a recovery disc like B.L.I.N.D. and load it in RM, perhaps it loads perhaps not. Regardless, you can fix it, but it may take some time and investment in the needed tools.

    Thanks so much for your replies,

    You've given me the confidence to get her done. I'll try get the save mii frii going tonight. Sadly I borrowed a stok gc control so hopefully I can reassemble it without wrecking it. I have a triwing which is good because it looks like that's what's on the back.

    I'll let you know how it goes tonight, thanks again for all your help.

    Ok, so followig your advice I dismantled that GC control and I got it to do the save mii. Sadly it's 4.3(USA). And I looked up the serial number and it's 100% certain to be one of the ones that cannot load back up game discs. The other one I have here is old enough, perhaps I could switch the drives to make it easier to repair this thing.

    I looked through the bricking and unbricking FAQ and found a flow chart there, by the look of it my only option now to fix this Wii is to get a Drive Chip, is that right? If so is that the same thing as a DriveKey, and is this the guide I need to follow? http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...-your-wii.html

    Thanks for helping to point me in the right direction, I'm a pro at following explicit instructions lol, that's why I love the guides, just often need a little nudge to get going.

    That is a good guide. First thing I would do is swap the dvd drives, then try to load the autobooting B.L.I.N.D. disc, if you are lucky it will load. Otherwise you will need a compatible modchip.
