    Bricked?

    Well I'm not sure what happened to my wii so I can't really say if it's bricked or not... A couple weeks ago I decided to play my wii and had trouble getting it working... I connected everything correctly (the sensor bar, power adapter, and the video cables) but for some reason it shows "No Signal" on the TV. I even tried taking it to my friends house to see if it would work on his TV and even used his cables but nothing helped... Not really sure what's wrong with my wii because I dont remember turning off my wii during an update or installing anything new.. it's really weird. Here are some things I have noticed while trying to fix the wii...

    1. I can still see the green light when turning on the wii.
    2. Blue light flashes when putting in CD
    3. My remotes aren't able to synch
    4. No signal on TV
    5. When putting in the CD I still can hear the spinning noise

    I've done a little bit of research and found several ways to fix the wii but I want to see if I can fix it without purchasing anything... One thing I still dont know is what boot 2 is... whatever the hell that is..

    Oh BTW.... I have absolutely no idea what firmware my wii is.... all I know is that I used the Twilight hack to get Homebrew channel and i THINK i have bootmii...

    If you turn the unit on the LED flashes twice in quick succession, then boot2 BootMii install.

    If you haven't installed anything or done an update then it sounds like a hardware issue. A bad bluetooth module will cause these symptoms and can be replaced. If you did install something to cause this then well... Take some advice from these guys.

    IF it is a bluetooth module then it you can find a replacement for it on eBay and follow find a guide on how to take your wii apart and replace it. But don't run out and get anything until one of these guys verify thats what the problem is.
