    If you still have the issue there you still have a semi brick. Run syscheck and look at the region and installed system menu. The two must match. You can also view region settings with wiimod, in the advanced menu under region settings it will show you all the region settings and installed system menu. The region settings must match the installed system menu. If you followed this guide and still have opera error, then you likely installed the wrong system menu.

    Like I said, the system menu must match the system settings. The systems settings could be anything, regardless of the wii's origin. If you are getting an opera error, the installed system menu does not match the system settings. If you would like help, load the wiimod app. Once that app is loaded go to the advanced menu and select the region settings. Post here what all the values are for those settings and what the installed system menu is. That should clear up the situation for you. The wii can be any region you like. FYI, JAP wii is NTSC not PAL, so there is a mismatch with that statment.

    You could decide what system menu you want the wii to be, USA, EURO, JAP, KOR
    then you can install those system menu files (menu, elua, region select), install priiloader, and set the region settings to match.

    Doing chapter 2 of the softmod any wii guide would do this for you.
    -select your region you like
    -install region system menu files
    -set region settings to desired region
    -install priiloader

    FYI- it is important to do the whole install without restarting the wii. Restarting the wii during region changing can cause unwanted issues.

    If you like more help post back with your current region settings and installed system menu.

    A wii that boots to error opera needs to be updated via disc update from recovery menu via savemiifrii to the proper menu region. 003 error should also work with such a wii. The disc region string in the disc header must match the region in the wii's setting.txt. So if the wii was region set to JAP with a USA system menu, the region on the disc would need to be JAP, with a JAP system menu update. Possibly on 4.2/4.3+ the disc title ID would need to be USA with JAP region string, not completly sure if that matters or not. Regardles, using the error 003 fix for such a wii, a swap disc with the title id set to match the installed system menu with a region string matching the setting.txt should work in all cases, except for JAP setting.txt as SSBB-pal/kor will not load on JAP setting.txt. But if you have 4.1 or less with opera at boot, it should be easy fix with retail 4.2/4.3 disc update via savemiifrii to the proper region, no modchip needed. 4.2/4.3 may have more complicated fix. Possibly 4.2 with opera at boot would be fixed via proper 4.3 disc update without modchip, not sure though.

    okay i loaded the wiimod app and i have :
    system menu 448
    system menu v4.1J on IOS60

    And in advanced settings there are :
    a warning that there's a mismatch with area and sysmenu
    Console area settings - europe
    game region settings - europe
    console video mode - PAL
    Shop country code - 110
    service EULA - disabled

    Preset: Japan


    And coming back to your post mauifrog - I'll do the softmod again and if i pick the PAL region and the PAL/european system menu it won't make a brick or anything to my Japanese wii right?

    Oh and I yesterday had a problem with my disc channel. Wii hasnt see original games. Is it connected to this issue? (Few days ago it worked correctly)

    All of your region settings are set to EURO, so when you do the softmod guide install the EURO/PAL mod pack, be sure to install the 4.1 system menu files when you do this. That should fix your issue and give you a functional PAL/EURO wii. Unless you want to have a JAP/NTSC wii, which you could do if you liked also. But I would go with the PAL/EURO setup.

    Just follow the guide as it is written step by step and you will not brick your wii. You should read it a few times before you start so you know what you are doing.

    Dear mauifrog, thank you for the advice. It's known that a disc update will certainly "unblock" my Wii from Opera error at boot. Yet, my current problem and the real barrier is that I don't have a SaveMiiFrii doggie to force my console into RM. PLus, I have tried hundreds of times, trying to get into RM using the GC controller D-Pad method, but failed.
    I could easily get into RM, working on other Wii, with this GC controller; so, I doubt that the GC port of that Wii-Opera-victim may be inherently defective.
    Any other comment , please ?

    No other ideas, you need to get into RM to fix it. If it is giving the opera error, then one would think that RM should be functional, so perhaps a savemii would be a good investment. There was an old 2. something system menu that only gave black screen in RM, but RM worked, not sure if that could be your issue. Maybe your just very unlucky and have a broken gc port 4, that would such, but is more likely than a non function RM I believe.

    If it helps the wii is bricked because it is semi bricked, region settings do not match the system menu. The wii settings have been reset and it is trying to run region select channel at boot to reset the language and all that. This could happen from a system format via the pink fish disc. Doubtful that it happened from the wii settings as one would not think you could get to those, unless someone did a system format, then did a disc update from RM to the wrong region. There was a system menu update 2 to 3 I believe that would wipe the wii settings and cause the wii the enter region select at boot, when done the wrong region it cause opera error at boot. Now I am not sure about this one, but what would happen if I delete region select channel, then do a system format? Possible opera error at boot or black screen, not sure.

    Anyway, the cause of the issue is relatively known and the solution is straight forward. So it must be some bs issue with that wii. Have fun.
