    Wii is back home after a full-brick that was saved by Streamlinehd. He flashed the NAND and put all the pieces back good as new. Less than a week later it is back home again. I highly recommend him if you need help with a bricked Wii.

    I have the exact same issue (down to the nephews playing on my wii while I was outside). They put a black ops disc in and started it up. It never went anywhere apparently, just went to a black screen. That is when I came in and turned it off. My wii boots fine except that no remotes will sync(tried 5 so far). I have tried every method that the search function (and google) has provided. So does a bad bluetooth always black screen or does anyone have any idea what might be the issue?

    1. Loose or disconnected Wi-Fi = remotes lose connection/don't sync, black screen
    2. Bad Wi-Fi card connected = Same

    If you can't access recovery mode, you can try replacing the Wi-Fi card and if it still doesn't work you have a full brick.
    So bluetooth module wouldn't be the reason there is a black screen?

    Yes, a bad BT module would cause a black screen however in this case, the issue wasn't a BT module. The giveaway is that the Wiimote was working on the frozen screen but stopped working when the console was reset. Also, the OP mentioned that Savemiifrii wasn't working (another giveaway that the problem isn't related to the BT Module.)

    so, that Wii that had to have the NAND flashed.... here we are again.(just about 6 months later) They "claimed" they were playing Firefighter Real Heroes and got a black screen. I have been unsuccessful in trying to recover from the black screen. I still have the NAND keys. Where do I go from here? Is there a better mod to allow for playing from USB than a soft-mod. Suggestions are very welcomed, thanks guys. This Wii needs saved again.

    Well you can start by stop using USB Loader GX. There's a bug that rarely bricks wii's.
    Do you have priiloader/preloader?

    And to answer your question, Yes there is a hardware mod that enables you to have USB loading.

    Search "WODE Modchip wii" on google and you will find the product.

    I did have the priiloader/preloader but it is not coming on with the booting with the reset button pushed in.
    and back to the question..... is the WODE Modchip better than a soft-mod; as in does it make it impossible to brick?

    No, it is simply a USB Loader but hardware. It doesn't protect your wii anymore or less than a softmod but you don't mess with IOS files so that could possibly be slightly safer, and the WODE also doubles as a modchip to load discs.
