    I like to help out, no problem. It is always good te help out others especially if something works again.
    I will grab a working board later today and measure some place for you to check on your own. Hope we can find the broken component.
    Question is then, can you replace it or do you know someone who can replace the defective component?

    Fortunatly I have an uncle whose an electrical engineer (and I am being genererous by using the term "engineer"!) with a steady hand and a good sense of electronics. He just knows nothing about the wii architecture. Nor do I. But he's definently more adept at soldering and every other technique used remove or add damaged or repaired components. The big question is what is causing the power to be terminated from the rest of the board. Any more suggestions would be definently welcome. But I will tell you this : the person sending me a replacement board changed his order since he didn't have any 3.3u or 3.4u left, all he had was 4.0u or above. So he said that he would send me his own 3.2u. I don't know whether to believe this or not, but he belongs to a popular auction site with a good reputation, so I'm not sure what to believe. If it is 3.2, that would probably mean that the board revision is before the rev20 boards came out. But just to be safe, I would still like to keep this board, this NAND, and the Wii that I bought originally, instead of a replacement that I know nothing about. The board you and I have been working with is a revA! yep LU52. Such a shame this happened. But in answer to your question I do have the resources to fix whatever needs fixing. Thanks, truly.

    Just a question to see if this applies to you to: did you try starting your board without bluetooth and wifi module? As I was testing loose boards yesterday and I have one wifi module which is not working properly I guess as it gives no power led to my wii ... Just a quick guess. When I have time I will measure some values on the converters to see where the 12V is converted into something else.

    Yeah, I powered it with both the wifi and bluetooth modules removed. Still no power. I'm not sure if the fan in the back is always powered or just comes on when the heatsink for the CPU & GPU reaches a certain temp. I always thought that I felt a little air come out of it, but couldn't be certain with it being such a low CFM fan. If it's always powered, that trace is near that power end of the board. Man If I could just get this thing back. I know it's a blown module on the board. (well, I'd like to feel as though I know that it's a blown module!). I just need to find out where all the power is transformed down to 5, 3.3, and 1.8. If I know where that all happened at, I'd be so much closer to the problem. Again, thanks for your suggestion.
