    Black Screen, Completely Unresponsive Wii After Softmod

    I want to first say that I have read all the other threads regarding this and nothing seems to work.

    Please note this is my 3rd day with my Wii and I bricked it. How embarrassing.

    After i tried to install some wads, I rebooted to a completely unresponsive wii. Nothing, no text, no error codes, zilch. I tried every recovery sd card pack I found to no avail. Tried holding down reset, nothing.

    My firmware is 3.4U if I remember correctly. I am looking for any help anyone can provide to get my wii back in working order!

    Thanks for taking a look!

    It'd be really handy if you knew what wads you tried to install. A black screen on start up could be down to a number of different things.

    Do you get one or two flashes from the DVD slot when you start up?

    Your Wii has now gone to Wii heaven. There's nothing you can do to repair it besides sending it back to Nintendo.

    Uninstalling any IOS under 200 is just asking for trouble, and you got a lot of it when you uninstalled IOS50, which is the most important file your 3.4 Wii uses.

    I have recently developed the same issue after following http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...lling-hbc.html

    When I turn on my wii, I get the usual single blue flash then 2 very close together.

    I had Bootmii installed and preloader and have a NAND backup too, only I tried holdint the reset button down whilst powering on and nothing.

    The odd thing is that it's not a black screen - it's no screen at all. My TV is set to blue screen when there is no signal and that's what it's doing.

    I can also power on the Wii with the remote and then pressing anything just makes al 4 buttons flash

    Any ideas?

    ****EDIT****
    I can get into bootmii so will install my backup NAND file.

    Buzzard, lucky for you that you have bootmii/boot2 installed.

    Lucky? Nah - I say good planning

    All that reading of posts by you and Mauifrog paid off - Without you two, there would be a) a much smaller community and b) whole tower blocks made of Wii bricks

    There are too mant suspect guides out there which makes it look and sound easy to successfully softmod your Wii, however one key thing to remember is that practice works great in theory but theory often fails in practice.

    I originally modded mine from a different tutorial before I discovered Wiihacks.com and had a heap of problems for the 'step-by-step' guides that recommended installs of CiosCORP for example.

    My Wii is went from 3.xE to 2.0J and eventually I got to 4.2E and downgraded to system menu 3.2E. Unfortunatley I'm still having issues - can't upgrade to 4.2 via Nintendo Wifi (even though Wifi is working), can't get any loaders to work and many apps (such as the firmware upgraders) just boot to a black screen.

    I'll restore my Wii then seek help on some of the errors.

    Try this, you'll need a gc-controller.
    download cboot2_wadmanager_1.5_mod.zip and extract to a formated sd-card
    download IOS34-64-v3087.wad
    download IOS36-64-v3090.wad
    Boot the wii, wadmanager should start, use ios249
    Install ios36 and ios34
    Should fix your your hackmii ios issue and black screens.

    What is going on......

    I load to bootmii, select retore NAND and then it asks for the SD card. I insert the SD card and then press reset to continue, then it goes to what looks like the restore screen and nothing happens.

    I wondered if it was a corrupt back up, so created a new back up (of brick) then try and restore that - same thing happens.... Nothing.

    Now I am in a bad place....
