    Can't get past health screen press a

    I have an unmodded console with the LAH serial, I turn the console on and get the black health screen press a. When I press a the screen fades so you can just see the health screen and just hangs.
    Has anyone got any idea of what to do? I can't find this problem on any forum.
    This console is 100% virgin no chips no softmods.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Wow a genuine Wii failure not exacerbated by mods.

    Sounds like a software glitch though, probably somewhere in the realms of a banner brick.

    The operating system of your Wii has become corrupted, possibly due to an incomplete Nintendo update.

    Send it back to Nintendo would be my first thought.

    The only other options we can give would be to have your Wii modded to potentially recover the Operating System.

    By pressing + & - and a, I can get into the white screen with maintenance mode, Wii message board cannot be used. and there is an ok button but that is as far as I can go, no button on the controller will ok the screen. I guess if I could get in from there I could do a recovery?

    Thanks for your reply teal'c. I've fixed the problem and here's how.
    My ir bar is stuffed so i've chucked it and used two candles for now (it works!!)
    Gone into maintanence mode and reformatted memory.
    Viola its fixed.
    NEw IR bar on the way and it's all good.

    Most bricks we get on here are softmod bricks where stuff like the maintenance mode doesn't work. Thanks for coming back and sharing your results.
