    Banner-Bricked Wii still not fixed after removing banner (Ed: Maybe bricked for real)

    All right, so I have (or at least I think I have) a banner bricked Wii. It displays all the signs of being banner-bricked (System files corrupt, works in maintenance mode, etc.) and I tried to remove what I thought was the corrupt banner, which was my Homebrew Channel. However, even after doing that, I still have the same error coming up.

    The only banners I have on my system menu are the Disc, Forecast, News, Mii, Photo, and Shop Channel. How am I supposed to know if any of these are responsible for the brick?

    I'm not hardmodded, I just used the Twilight Hack to install HBC, though I can't really find my TP CD any more.

    I tried to format system memory, but the format process never ends and I always end up forcing it to shut down.

    Another problem that I notice is that whenever I put a disk into the DVD drive, it always spins up and goes really really really fast. Game disks still work perfectly under Maintenance Mode.

    If I leave the Wii on in Maintenance Mode for too long, the screen just goes to black and I have to restart the Wii, but the disk is still spinning!

    Anyways, sorry, this was a bit disjointed but I'm trying to give you guys all the "symptoms" because I don't think this is a normal banner brick.

    Edit: Sorry, forgot to mention: Version 3.4U System Software.

    Read about and download bannerbomb and put it on your sd-card
    Then download "Any Title Deleter MOD" put the boot.dol on the root of your sd-card and bannerbomb it

    Then list all of your installed titles here. Perhaps we can figure out your bad banner.

    What did you do before this problem started?

    All right, so I used bannerbomb to run AnyTitle Deleter MOD v6b, and then I just selected the first IOS that came up (IOS336) because I don't really know about those.

    An error message came up about region detection

    Pulling Sysmenu TMD... Error! ISFS_Open (ret = -102)

    Reading TMD Failed! 0

    Error! Es_OpenContent (ret = -1017)

    Region Detection failure! 0

    Conf. region. 1
    but I just pressed A and the menu came up.

    All right, for the first category (System Titles), we have:

    IOS55, 53, 254, 51, 36, 14, 10, 50, 37, 34, 35, 33, 28, 22, 31, 30, 21, 20, 17, 15, 13, 12, 11, GameCube 03, DC, IOS9, System Menu, IOS4.

    All the numbers have IOS before them.

    For the 2nd (Disc Game Titles), we have:

    13 UNKNOWNs

    For the 3rd (Installed Channel Titles): Nothing.

    4th (System Channel Titles): 8 UNKNOWNs

    5th (Games that Use Channels): 1 UNKNOWN

    6th: Nothing

    7th: Two UNKNOWNs

    I can't really read the letter codes beside them because I'm on a small TV right now but if you want me to I can strain my eyes real hard and read them for you.

    As for what I was doing before this happened, besides installing HBC, nothing much. On HBC, I had installed a few music players, I can't really remember which ones they are anymore.

    Thank you!

    If I install cIOS36 to run the official Nintendo Backup Disc, as is suggested here: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...ner-brick.html, could that fix the problem?

    Otherwise, I don't really know which wads to delete yet.

    If you run anytitle deleter mod, push 2 inside the app to update the database. That should remove most of the unknown.

    Did you install any wads before this trouble?

    Looks like it's bricked for real now.

    It seems my Wii has taken a turn for the worse.

    I tried to turn it on and start up Anytitle Deleter, but as soon as I start it up, the Wii just flashed the drive light once, and I could hear two distinct sounds from the drive, which sounded like the laser moving once and then moving back.

    There's absolutely no video output.

    As for your question, no, I haven't installed any wads. I haven't deleted any IOSes, the only thing that I've done is use twilight hack and bannerbomb to run Anytitle Deleter. I just looked when I was running AtD, I didn't delete anything.

    I opened up the Wii and reseated my Bluetooth module, just as a guess, but that did nothing.

    Should I try to replace the DVD motherboard or wifi adapter? I don't really know where to go next.

    Edit: Also, I tried Savemiifrii but it didn't work. I tried reseating the bluetooth module because I wasn't sure if it was just the controller that was messing up (I used a crappy wireless one) or savemiifrii just wasn't working.

    That is unfortunate. Not sure what you can do from here. Sounds like you've reviewed the savemii diagram.
    Sorry.

    Well, thanks anyways.

    Looks like it's time to buy a new Wii and sell my old one part by part.

    Good thing I get cheap one-day shipping at Amazon :-)

    I bought my Wii on launch day (good times...), does that mean it has a D2A DVD drive mainboard?
