    Black Screen after 4.2 softmod- HELP

    I've run into a problem on a 4.2U wii. I've thoroughly read through the guide, and attempted it. I made it through A4, and I believe that bootmii was installed in boot2. The wii then booted into, what I believe to be, the homebrew channel. The guide suggests backing up NAND, but the card I was using was too small, 512MB. I pressed the home button so that the Wii would return to the main menu, which worked fine. So I turned off the wii and made a copy of the contents on the original SD onto a larger SD card. Put the larger SD card into the Wii and attempt to start. The Wii drive flashes once and then I get a No Signal from my tv. I then replace the SD card with the original one, but still get No Signal. I then remove the SD card and boot the wii without a card, but still get No Signal. I've read through some of the bricked guides and attempted them, but I can't get anything to display to the tv. Before I attempted the flash, the wii was working fine. I can still turn on the Wii with the Wiimote, so it's not the bluetooth. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!

    Format your sd-card and extract MMM_CB2.zip to sd:\
    Boot the wii, does MMM load?

    Does your blue led drive light flash once or twice when you boot the wii with sd card and disc removed?

    Extracted the 5 files of that zip into the root of the SD card after I reformatted. Put it in the Wii with an empty DVD drive, but still nothing. The blue LED flashes once. The a/v cord and plug are functional, because I just tested it on my brother's Wii and his boots up fine. Any other ideas? I really appreciate the help.

    Edit- So I've just read that a single flash indicates that bootmii was not installed to boot2. However I clearly remember installing it to boot2 and receiving an installation successful message. If it did fail to install for some reason, would this cause the Wii to no longer boot? I only installed the homebrew channel and DVDX.

    I hate to say it, but this is not sounding good. Unplug the wii for 10 min, then try to power it back on.

    Unfortunately, I have no idea how this could have happened other than bad luck.

    Left it unplugged for a good 30 minutes, but upon powering up resulted in the same status as before. Should I simply take it to to a local repair shop?

    How old is this wii? Is it still under warranty?

    Unfortunately, the Wii is too old and is not covered under Nintendo's warranty. Also, I wanted to thank you again for the help.

    If you think it is old enough for boot2 bootmii, send it to deadlyfoez or bad-ad84 or streamlinehd. They should be able to fix it for you, probably for under $50.

    The only thing I can think of is your boot2 bootmii install failed, then when you restarted the wii- Black screen.

    Thanks, I sent a PM to see if it might be fixable.
