    Bluetooth module or brick?!

    Well, right now im not sure what to think. I thought i bricked the wii, and now it might be the bluetooth module.... Well, how can i tell? I can turn on the wii with the wii remote, but it wont sync once the wii is on, the controller just keeps flashing.... Is it the bluetooth module or brick? (black screen)

    Its a brick, your bluetooth module is fine.

    If the bluetooth module was bad, the wii remote wouldn't turn on the wii. It won't sync because it's bricked.

    Maybe it's recoverable.

    1) Check for double DVD slot flashes as you switch the Wii on.

    2) Press and hold reset as you power up.

    3) Plug in Gamecube controller to port 4, hold down Left, Right, Up and Down on D pad as you switch the Wii on.

    Do any of these do anything?

    It might be useful if you know what you did to your Wii prior to it going Black screen. Did you install something, uninstall something?

    I did all of those and none worked.... I used WUFE to update my wii sports resort and I installed most of the ups it dumped and it bricked it... Guess I'm sending it in

    Well the BT module must be doing something right as if it were dodgy or faulty then the Wii wouldn't boot at all.

    Have you tried temporary syncing them?

    I'm assuming you've tried re-syncing them using the red buttons and everything.

    what u mean about "temporary syncing"? Try them to another console? No i havenīt, and i have been trying those red buttons many times, changing batteries.. GC controller are neather working in system menu, should it even normally work?

    GC controller doesn't work in Wii menu, only in Homebrew Channel and relevant apps.

    It appears that you'd need a functioning Wiimote to actually temporarily pair another Wiimote so forget about that.

    So does the Wiimote allow you to switch on the Wii at all?

    I am not aware of too much difficulty normally experienced by people swapping their BT modules for new ones, as far as I am aware it's just a simple process.

    It could very well be a slighty faulty bluetooth module. After a little research it has been known that a new module doesn't allow Syncing so they replaced it with another and it worked.
