    Bricked Wii? Screen scrolls

    Afternoon everyone,

    My Wii is softmodded to sys menu 4.1. There were a couple of back-up games that would not work on my Wii (they would just scroll or black screen) so I tried (on USB loader GX) to change the game load to IOS250 for just that one game (New Super Mario). Well, the game went to black screen, I clicked Home, it tried to exit, I forced the Wii to shut down, and now when I try to start the Wii, either with the power-on button or the Wiimote it just goes to a black screen. I tried using the Fully Bricked/No nand backup and neither of them worked. when I do try to boot using bootmii the Wii comes up, but the screen just scrolls from top to bottom, fast. Can anyone help?

    Sounds like wii is outputting the wrong display format and your tv doesn't support it

    I've been using the same TV for a few years. I can't really see what the error or code is when booting from bootmii.

    Well, fortunately you can force the mode the wok outputs when using bootmii via editing the configuration file.

    What county are you in,do they use pal or NTSC?

    on your sd card, in bootmii folder, edit or create the file called bootmii.ini and put this in it

    Code:
    # BootMii config file
    
    # Video mode, possible settings:
    # NTSC, PAL50, PAL60, PROGRESSIVE
    VIDEO=NTSC
    
    # Autoboot, possible settings:
    # SYSMENU, HBC
    #AUTOBOOT=SYSMENU
    
    # Autoboot delay, in seconds:
    # Default is 5
    #BOOTDELAY=5

    You need to change PROGRESSIVE to NTSC if you aren't using component cables.

    I do have component cables, and I tried to change the ini to NTSC, but I still get the scrolling screen. I think the text/error is "xxxxx bol loader 010" where the x's are not readable. And thanks again for eveyone helping!!!

    Not sure if this is worth a shot Hold the down direction on the d pad (keep holding) and press reset on your wii. This resets the video mode to default.
