    Google "SaveMiiFrii" just to be sure. You will need a Game Cube controller in order to do it. You can use this as a guide to verify that it is a bad BT module.



    If it as a bad module then you can find them fairly cheep on eBay.

    Sometimes they just come loose out of the socket. Just make sure it is in tight before you purchase a new one.

    It's the chip directly to the left of the SD card slot and has a FCC ID on the sticker. Looks like this....

    Take a look at the post with the pic again. I added another pic with the bluetooth module removed.

    Have you tried everything els you can get help on before you crack the dang thing open??

    You get absolutley no responce from the wii when you turn it on? Nothing on the screen? No boot with SD card?

    Maybe a preloader issue??

    If you have a black screen at boot and can't power on the wii with your wiimote then you most likely have an issue with your bluetooth module. If the black screen occurred when you weren't doing any softmods or updates what-so-ever and you can't turn the Wii on with your wiimote, you definitely have a bluetooth issue. The key here is that the wiimote will not power up the console therefore he obviously has a bluetooth issue.

    And playing a game wouldn't cause Priiloader to corrupt unless an update was accepted and installed or if the system menu IOS was messed with. None of which are the case here.
