    Not sure if my Wii is bricked. (Black Screen)

    My wii was working fine 4 days ago. Was playing it on the 4th day and went to sleep and turned it on only to get a black screen on the 3rd day. Sounds works fine, wii remote connects, drive works fine, am able to press power button once and turns off, can access anything on the system menu. Everything works fine, I can even play games and use wads, it's just that I can't see anything. I have never upgraded, the only thing I did was lower the firmware and installed ocarina of time. I thought it was just a overheat problem, but after several days I'm doubting it. It might be a cable problem, but it was working fine a few days ago but when I turn on the wii, it does not flicker at all. (Does flicker matter?) I do not have preloader installed, or bootmii, and the Savemiifrii I still have yet to try.

    Does it work on another TV?

    No, it's the same. I even tested with a DVD player on the same input to see if it was the T.V. I took out all the other cables and left only the wii as well. As yes I put them in the right order, still no luck.

    What kind of cables do you have (component or composite)? If you have the wrong settings, that can happen.

    I know I have read about this same thing somewhere else. I think it had something to do with the Wii thinking that component cables were plugged in, so the video wouldn't work, but the audio would. If you happen to know someone with component cables and an HDTV, see if your Wii works with those.

    I will try to find more info on the issue.

    I think to make the wii "check" to see which cable is plugged in/reset the video settings
    you have to unplug the power and video cable on the wii
    then plug the video cable in, then the power
    turn it on and see if that works

    I already tried that because I thought my wii had an overheated problem.

    ok, was there recently a storm in your area?
    maybe a lightning strike?

    I got a wii that was plugged in when lightning struck, everything worked except video
    it didnt work with composite cables, but ended up working with component cables
    try to get a hold of some component cables and see if that works...

    So it isn't likely that my wii is bricked? If the Savemiifrii doesn't work/show, what does that mean?
