    Question Non-hacked Wii produces no audio/video

    The Setup

    Hi everybody,

    I spent a while searching the forums on this topic (along with other internet resources) and most of the questions and responses have been in regards to a soft-modded Wii. I was actually going to attempt to softmod mine tonight after it collected dust for years and now I'm met with this problem.

    Earlier today, I unhooked my Wii from my downstairs TV and moved it upstairs. Once I got it all hooked up again, I booted it up and everything worked fine. I turned it off and left to go out shopping for a little bit. Not even three hours later, I come back home and am met with a system that appears to turn on, but doesn't output any video/audio.

    The Symptoms

    Now to answer a few things that I know will be asked:

    1) I have tried both component and composite cables. Neither work.
    2) My wii remote will power on my system, but after it does it will not sync up.
    3) My system blinks the blue light once when powered on.
    4) The system's cd drive attempt to look for a CD (or something similar, it makes a noise).
    5) The green light stays on, I cannot get it back into standby mode. The only thing I can do from here is hold the power button in to turn it back off (red light).

    Other Stuff

    My wii sat upright on its stand since I bought it in 2006 (it is a launch wii). However, before I went out today I laid it on its side in standby mode. It was warm to the touch when I returned home and started having these problems.

    If anybody has any advice that will save me the $85 to send it to Nintendo to fix it (they'll probably replace it anyway), it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    You can either try to fix it yourself, or send it to Nintendo. Earlier wii's indeed had a design flaw which could cause the wii to fry when you put it in stand-by.

    That's just internet rumour in my opinion. I have plenty of launch wiis with no problems. Their age does show occasionally, as with ANYTHING made with lead free solder.

    Go look up tin whiskers for more info.

    Blaming WC24 is silly.

    Will,

    I ended up having to send the Wii in for repair. It cost me $85 total and only a few days to get it back. They replaced the mother board and the disc drive according to my receipt BUT now I have to send it back.

    After getting the wii back, it kept overheating and shutting down. I couldn't figure out why I was still having overheating problems and after some further investigation, I realized that the rear fan wasn't spinning at all. I tried to mess with it but it seems dead as a doornail. I'd recommend if you end up having to send your Wii to Nintendo, make sure the fan is spinning when you get it back. They covered shipping and everything on the way back so now I'm just waiting for its return. Third time's a charm?
