    Exclamation bricked wii on 4.1!!! Help!!!

    okay so during the week, there was a power outage in my apartment complex and it killed my wii ac adapter =(, so i went to gamestop to buy a new one and thought that was the problem, so when i plugged it in it turned on but all i get now is a black screen with the system menu music playing, no video, im sure its not the cables. I have no preloader or bootmii =(, really stupid i know -_-. But any suggestions , i have cioscorp installed and was wondering if maybe the universal unbrick disk v2 might work, or loading a disk with a system update or updating the wii, or if anything a mod-chip? any help would be greatly appreciated

    Doesn't sound bricked. Try borrowing the AV wires to see if it is that. If not, having cioscorp would allow you run universal unbrick disc (assuming whatever happened didn't mess with your system menu). Again though, borrow a friend's cable before you do anything else.

    I agree with zxm. If the system menu music is still playing I don't think it's a software problem, but perhaps a hardware problem.

    seems like you dont like to look for your answers you just want them given to you. If you look around that this forum doesnt recommend ciosFAILcorp, but it does recommend installing bootmii & priiloader, you have went about this all wrong and doubt you will find any useful help, as far as i can tell, you didnt introduce yourself or read the forum rules. Start with your intro and then read, read, and read more.

    Ha sorry but a power outage wouldn't brick your Wii unless it happened during an update. Power outages caused by a surge will usually send a quick jolt of electronics frying energy through your power lines. You probably have a cooked motherboard. I would recommend using a $3 - $5 surge protector next time. I would guess that if the surge killed your power adapter then your Wii is definitely toast.

    Or the A/V chip is damaged or any number of parts on the Wii.

    Zeldaboy if the A/V cable has been destroyed just think of the amount of power that had to pass through your Wii and back out through that cable to burn it out. It is very unlikely that is the problem as the circuit boards in the Wii would indefinitely be damaged prior to the A/V cable. I understand that the Wii turns on but that doesn't mean you're going to get an A/V output. Bad_Ad is right it could be the A/V chip that is fried or a number of other parts as well.

    Here's a few things you can try. Maybe you will get lucky and only the bluetooth module burnt out on you. (Unlikely in this situation but worth a try)

    1) Get a GC remote and mod it so you can press all directional buttons at the same time. This is called savemiifrii and you can find directions on this site on how to make one. Once you do that, try to boot up your Wii while pressing all directional buttons at the same time with the GC remote in port 4. If you see your system menu come up on the bottom right hand corner of the screen then you most likely have a bad bluetooth module which you can replace for around $5 - $10.

    2) If your system menu doesn't come up then you can replace your motherboard with a working motherboard. Check eBay although it is unlikely you will find a working one, you can give it a shot.

    3) Part it out. Remove the dvd drive and you can sell it for around $40-$50 on eBay. You can then sell the bluetooth module, wireless module for around $5-$10 each. Last option would be to sell the console broken as-is for parts only and you should be able to get between $30-$60 for it. Figure you can get between $30-$70 total for your broken console and then get a working console for around $100 or so. I also have a few working consoles I can sell you if you want. Try the 1st option I gave you and let me know what happens. Good Luck!

    Its not bluetooth module as he gets sound.

    Faulty bluetooth would make the Wii not boot at all.
