1) you have a mod chip somewhere
2) it is softmodded and someone removed the HBC. Without you being able to get to your settings you cannot banner bomb. You can try the twilight hack depending on the firmware you have however if you have 4.x you wont be able to. So the only other option would be to the smash bros hack.
Do me a favor. Power down your wii, before you power it back up hold the reset button and press power. Hopefully it will load preloader. If it does not see if bootmii is installed. You can tell by taking the sd card out and while powering on the system the blue led light on the disc tray will flash 2 times in 1 second.
If we can get that information we can help you further.
while the seller declared "it was a NTSC japan version with soft mod", u can't expect a wiikey modchip inside. Nor, u could settle the #001 error with a wiikey_1.9s_update disc.
perhaps, those softmodded Jap_Wii are capable to play the "oldie" jap game disc fm China-copycats.
at ur case, the OPERA message shows the wii is now semi-bricked ! No big deal. Semibrick could be easily solved. Search for the "semi-brick fix". Lots of threads in this Forum, already.
edit: check and advice the Serial Number as labelled on the side of Wii. Wish ur NTSC-Jap wii was not a softmodded Korean Wii. If Korean, u get another story....

Sociallyantisocial- I have tried that power down and turning it on holding the reset button, but no preloader, also the blue light only blinks once.
With both the twilight hack and the smash bros hack would i need the original game disc from japan?
also my serial number is LAH1011XXXX1
and when i put a Pal game into the wii it asks for a parental code. I know this can be fixed by going into settings.
I just want the settings to work again so i can see if i can get those fuzzy lines off my tv.

I just realized that from the serial number and other threads that my console is actually a PAL-australian, which is good cause im from aus.
But ive downloaded the fix discs for my reason and still nothing. =( I've looked at the adaptor, and i think its usa, cause it says RVL002(usa)
could this be causing the fuzzying? hmmmm this just gets worse
Guess i gotta keep searching
If you mean adaptor as in power transformer then I wouldn't have thought a USA 110v transformer would work in Australia. Check the power values written on the label to verify this.
Sounds to me as if someone has updated this Wii to Japan and removed softmods before selling it on.
With a bit of luck it'll be on 3.4 or less, after all if it was disc updated the most it could
be is 3.4.
Rent a copy of Zelda Twilight Princess and try the TP hack first. I heard that Super Smash hack was USA only.
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
Thanks for your reply Tealc,
I meant ac adaptor, the one im using with the wii is a RVL-002 output DC12V 3.7A input AC100-245V 52w 50/60hz
And for the wii- RVL-001 rating 12V 45W
I've put a genuine pal game in there (wii sports) but it has a parental code lock, which i cant change cause settings, does this mean I wont be able to put the twilight Princess in there?
Your transformer is fine, it's multi-voltage.
Actually you might be right, if Zelda also asks for parental lock you won't be able to load it and run the hack.
I'd never even heard of parental lock on Wii before this post.
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
this is what happenes if you install jap firmware on a pal wii (tested) the only way around it (settings) is getting a pal firmware installed! how?
just out of curriosity what have you got as channels on the wii screen other than disc channel/shop/photo/weather/mii????
any other channels non official??
P.s dont ever get a ps 3 ARRRRGHHHH!!!
nearly there ive just got to try it with parental controls on!

Ok i just changed my firmware to jap3.2 and am getting the operra style message going into settings.
i have put parental controls on and unable to load zelda.
however the hackmii installer can be used to load install homebrew using wii/datamanagment/channels then select sd card and pop in an sd card with the hackmii installer on it. i just used hackmii 2! worked fine.
so at least you will have homebrew installed.
what next, im off to try something! I'LL BE BACK!
I just installed IOS60patchedwad and then installed pal 4.1wad. so im now on 4.1 pal firmware. but check with one of the mods before installing wad system menus or going to 4.1 in case you need a certain Cios.
any games loaded via backuplaunchers will bypass parental controls but im not sure how you are going to get rid of parental controls???????
I REALLY DO HATE PS3 and heat guns and thermal past and blueraydrives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wii best by far
