    Bricked Wii or Bluetooth Module?

    Ouch.... so softmodded a 4.2U wii to load my games from USB. All was well but nephews were messing around and now the BLACK SCREEN!
    The guide that I used to mod was here: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...y-4-2-wii.html
    NAND was installed as an IOS. I do have a NAND backup.
    Controller is not connecting to Wii..... so is it the blue-tooth module?
    I do have a GC controller and have followed the http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...creen-wii.html tut..... all 3 steps and was not successful.... well step 1 is if NAND is boot2 which is a NO.
    Step 2.... nothing
    Step 3..... nothing

    Is there anything I can do? Have I missed something? Is there someone somewhere who can help?
    Thank you.... you guys have been so helpful... this is the 2nd Wii I have done and I have tried to read all that I could but I am stumped.... or just hoping to find some good news!
    Thanks!

    If it was the bluetooth module you would not be able to power the wii on with the wiimote and savemiifrii would load the recovery menu. What happened before the black screen? What usbloader where they using?

    USB Loader GX.... which was working and loading games.
    I do have the NAND backup files saved. but bootmii is an IOS.
    I thought I installed the Priiloader but that did not work... so maybe I missed it.
    I think I need to find someone who can flash the NAND?
    what happened before....I wish I knew. They said it froze.... however one of them said they saw settings and they were pushing buttons blindly...so your guess is probably better than mine!

    Can you turn the Wii on with the remotes? If not, it's most likely a bluetooth module. A bad BT module or WiFi module will prevent the Wii from booting and cause a black screen. Easy and cheap fix if you are handy with a screwdriver.

    Bluetooth module?

    The screen was frozen in the usb loader gx however they were able to move the arrow on the screen with the controller but couldn't select. When they turned the Wii off then back on the black screen appeared.
    I have not been able to sync any remotes to see if it is possible to turn off or on.

    Puzzled as to why the GC controller wouldn't work either.... but if the bluetooth module is frozen would that continue with a black screen?

    If you can't get your Wii to sink then that is looking like a hardware failure and most likely your BT module. Try the SaveMiiFrii method here and see if you can get into the recovery menu. If you can then replace the bluetooth.

    Bad wifi on its own will cause bluetooth not to sync, as the system menu and system ios are not attempted to be loaded, therefore the remote cant sync.

    I was just editing my post. Just tested out all the scenarios.

    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.

    Just like to point out, Ive had 2 faulty wifi modules today in a batch of wiis im stripping.

    One of which was intermittent and worked some times, but not others.

    quite annoying.
