    Exclamation My Wii is a TOTAL brick. What now?

    I just installed Homebrew, BootMii, ect. ect. and now my Wii got bricked. I didn't back it up yet. And when I say bricked, I mean that it won't even accept any source of power. I got it yesterday.

    Just... UGH

    It won't read discs, it won't read SD cards, it won't turn on, it won't even recognize that it's plugged into an outlet. My brother's gonna be furious.

    Plug it into another outlet.

    Make sure you unplug it from the wii and the outlet for a bit, this has happened to me from a sudden power loss.

    may be the power supply is retired, if it won't come back after a 1 minute unplug and plug-in.

    if you just got it... take it back and tell them the powersupply is dead and they should exchange it...

    but before that try all the great suggestions here...

    I had to lightly slap the power supply with my hand to get it going again, but it worked and no issues for more than 6 months now.
