    Bricked Wii! black screen when launching system menu from preloader

    Hey Guys, I need some MAJOR HELP with my Wii. I turned it on this morning and my wiimotes wouldn't turn on when preloader loaded. So I got a GC controller from my friend and tried to launch the system menu. I got a black screen. I was able to launch the homebrew channel successfully however.

    Any ideas how I would go about fixing this? Please remember that my wiimotes are not working and I only have a GC controller. I also tried a youtube fix involving some "UNBRICKNTSC" package or something. Wad manager showed an error when i tried to install those

    Help is majorly appreciated

    You must have done something to your Wii to cause this. What modifications did you make to it the last time it worked?

    I was running IOS249 and then I installed IOS60 so I could use preloader 0.29. It was working fine for a couple of days and then one day I turned it on and the wiimotes wouldn't sync. I didn't change anything before it stopped working. Is it possible that its the bluetooth module?

    EDIT: I do NOT mind completely formating my wii. Any info on how I could do that would help if all else fails

    Best way to check is switch off the Wii to red light and attempt to switch it on using the Wiimote, if it remains unresponsive you probably have a dodgy/unseated bluetooth module.

    A Syncing issue is not necessarily a BT module fault, it's more likely to be a software issue.

    Actually, I had replaced my power adapter a couple of months ago. Since then the wii wouldn't power on with the wiimote from red light state (It would from yellow light state however). I just tried doing it from yellow state and It wouldn't power on. But what would a dodgy bluetooth module have to do with system menu not booting.

    Also my wii is now taking longer and longer to start up. As in the light turns green and I can hear the disc drive make that empty sound, but my TV shows "no input" for about 10 seconds before showing the preloader screen.

    Any ideas on how to do a full system reformat?

    A format won't help, you'll just lose your saves and still it'll not work. I'm no expert on Preloader but I'd imagine it does not need the bluetooth module to function to load.

    If your bluetooth module is faulty then the Wii will not boot to System Menu, it's a critical part of the boot process and for good reason. Must be somewhere in the boot process e.g. boot1>boot2>bluetooth check>IOS.

    Maybe the old power adapter blew the Bluetooth module a little and now it's fully gone to bluetooth module heaven. It's a good start to assume that if you could power on before, even from yellow and now you can't then something has changed.

    You might want to check if it's seated proerly before you spend the little money these things cost to replace.

    Also what about the "exception DSI" error?
