    Is my Wii Bricked?

    Today I was playing Mario Galaxy and the game just froze.
    I had to unplug it to turn it off. Now when I try to turn it on the light goes green, I can eject a disk but the controller are not syncing (or working) and I get no signal on the screen.

    I'd like to know if have a full brick. When people talk about a black screen, what do they mean by that? No signal? or there is signal but the screen it's black?

    Thanks.

    I can't turn it on using the controller. Actually the controller doesnt sync and when it froze the batery was low.

    Maybe you're right.

    If just the bluetooth is broken, the console should turn on?

    No, it won't turn on when the bluetooth module is broken. If you cannot turn on the wii using the wii remote, then your bluetooth module is probably dead. Do make sure however that you try it with different wii remotes (borrow one of a friend, if you need to) and make sure the batteries of the wii remote are charged.

    Yes I was using USB loader. My wii has a softmod.

    I just tried again and the Wii turned on using the controller but it doesn't sync, so I can't turn the console off using it.

    So when I turn it on (pressing the power button on the console or on the controller) I get no image at all (the TV shows "no signal"). I just can eject a disk.

    What do you think?


    Thanks.

    How old is your wii???(Im now thinking that USB loader hurt Bluetooth module)

    Yes your case is very similar with my case b4
    suddenly game freeze(Im using USB Loader)
    Rebootes No signal,wiimote not connected,black screen

    Change the bluetooth module its very cheap(10 dollar) and its very easy to replace
    Dont let gameshop or else fix it(They will charge you 50 - 100 dollars)Fix it urself

    usb loader didnt kill your bluetooth module.

    bluetooth modules fail often, they fail while powered up. if you are softmodded you are likely using a usb loader which means most peoples modules will fail while using a usb loader as thats the popular way to play games.

    Ok, but I still don't get it.

    If I can turn the console on using the controller, it doesn't mean that my bluetooth is good?
