black screen without SD card - new SD with priiloader / BootMii works
I got an old wii from a friend, which did not turn on (only red light). he said that the Wii shut down during a game and never turned on again. he also said the Wii was softmoded and he played games using USB. I did not get the Wii remotes or the SD card.
I replaced the power supply and the Wii turned on (green light + flashing blue from the disk) - but nothing showed up on the screen (black screen).
I tried to read some more in the forum and found about priiloader sequence (turn on the Wii and then hold reset) to load priiloader - and it works: priiloader loads.
however, since I have new remote that is not synced I cannot navigate or do anything (moreover - should I do anything here?)
then I tried to download BootMii files to a new SD card - BootMii starts and I can see some icons and navigate with power/reset buttons.
if I choose to start Wii Menu - I get again to black screen
if I choose Homebrew channel - Hombrew is loading (blue screen with bubbles rising from bottom) but stays empty
through BootMii I got some more information such as the software version - 4.1E
In each of these cases I cannot sync the remote with the Wii (I read that only during a game or wii menu I can sync)
the question is how to proceed from here - what to do or install (in the SD card or Wii) to make the Wii work again and load games.
I don't have the original SD card that was used in this Wii - nor the NAND backup of this Wii
