Lynch: definitely a boot2 Wii (always a good thing). You'll have to wait for mauifrog to come along, his kind of bread and butter (make sure you listen to him).
The title pretty much sums it up. I tried turning on my soft-modded Wii for the first time in a year and I am greeted with a black screen and and a green light. I am able to turn on the Wii with the Wiimote. I have bootmii installed, as there is a flash of blue light on power up followed by two quick flashes of LED light. Any suggestions as to the problem so that it can be diagnosed and solved? Thanks.
Couple things I failed to mention: Holding the reset button upon start-up doesn't do anything, and it is a launch Wii.
UPDATE: I am able to get to the Bootmii menu. Not sure what to do from here. The wiimote will not stay synced, if it is supposed to.

Sounds good, thank you. Not sure if this helps, but here is more information.
For the Information section in Bootmii, it reports the following:
SysMenu: unknown boot1a boot2v2
NAND FS usage: 03.2%
I do not have the NAND back-up because it was on my old computer that crashed.
No idea as to what the System Menu version was. The region was U. If I need to, I can recover the NAND back-up from my crashed computer in a day or two.
power on Wii, show the Bootmii menu, press POWER button 3 times (move to the most most-right-hand side icon), press RESET button will go to next page,
u'll see the Dump nand backup fm Wii to SD or Rewrite nand backup fm SD to Wii,....etc.
u can use a GC controller, plug to the last port, PRESS & HOLD all the keys of D-pad and power-on, u'll see the Wii version displayed on the lower right-hand-side of screen.
it works from 3.?x ~4.3x
Lastly, yes, wait for mauifrog to save u from crisis !

Nothing seems to show up when I hold down the D-Pad and press the "power" button on the Wii.
did u view the video "SaveMii..."?
u've to press hard and hold the D-Pad, to make sure all the directions (ie. L,R, U, D) are connected before u power on.

Thanks for the reply..I do not have a NAND back-up available from before it was bricked for the above process.
