    Bricked Wii - have sound but no picture

    Wii system menu version before update? - i THINK it was 4.0 but not sure

    Internet update or disc update?
    Internet

    Bootmii installed?
    No
    Homebrew channel installed?
    Yes

    cIOScorp installed?
    Yes

    NO screens ever come up.

    Here is what led to it...I had everything working fine as per this tutorial:

    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    Install the apps in the order they appear in HBC

    Whenever it asks if you want to install from wad USB or network, scroll over to select network install....otherwise it will fail & you can try again Smile

    When you run cIOS downgrader, select 3.3x (x is your wii's default region)

    For IOS60 updater, select yes to install everything...IOS60, IOS61, both patches & new shop channel.

    Preloader takes a little while to start up when you install it...you may have to press the '1' button more than once

    to load preloader, power off your wii, power it back on, and hold reset button while it boots up.

    Be sure to set the preloader system menu hacks to allow region free disks, block disk updates, allow region free channels, etc.

    in preloader settings, verify the system menu is set to load IOS36

    Be sure to save your settings in preloader whenever you change something!!!

    cIOSCORP is imperative to loading from the disk channel!!!

    cIOS38 rev13 is imperative to playing the newest games (ghostbusters, etc.)

    I went through this once, and it all worked fine. Then for some dumb reason I went through it again; about halfway through, I got system files corrupted.

    I booted to the preloader, and continued from there. When I got to the step about downgrading cIOS, I selected cIOS 3.3 (I might have selected '3.3E' instead of 3.3U - I don't remember anymore)

    I saw some messages come up about changing the region on my wii could brick it, but it was 3am so I was tired and just clicked through.

    Now my Wii only has a blue screen; like it's not connected.

    I have access to 2 other Wii's as well as the solderless modchip.

    What can I do to fix this problem?

    If you have no bootmii installed and cannot access the preloader menu either, i am afraid you are running out of options. It is a full bricked wii, and there is no known way of restoring it i am afraid

    When booting up the wii hold the reset button, it should boot to the preloader screen. If it does try going in to the HBC using preloader. If that works just install system menu 4.0 wad with wad manager and you should be unbricked

    I get no picture. None at all. Not even preloader. Only Wii music and sound effects. I wonder if it would work in Europe.

    you mean it is like working, but no picture? you can actually see the wiimote syncing, hear it interacting woth the wii adn have no picture at all? it might be due to the fact that your tv does not support 50 herz

    That's a strange one. At this moment in time I'd be trying every TV in my house and figuring out a way to use anything to display the picture. In Europe a lot of the TVs we buy are able to display NTSC, however it seems that NTSC TVs are not made to be so adaptable.

    Failing that I'd be looking at working out a way I could revert things back without actually seeing a picture i.e. working out how many presses it needs to do each thing.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
