    There are two ways to unbrick a fully bricked wii:
    1. If you had bootmii as boot2 installed, you can use it to restore a back-up, or if you don't have one you can use this guide: Fully Brick, Bootmii/boot2 installed but No Nand Backup? Solution Here!
    2. If you don't have bootmii as boot2 installed, your only option is to use a NAND programmer to restore a back-up. If you don't have a NAND programmer, then you can send it to one of the forum members who do have one. If you don't have a back-up it is the end of the story.

    Those are the only two options.

    Option 2 requires a nand backup or if it's old enough then boot2 can be flashed into it with the programmer.

    Doing this wouldn't brick your Wii.

    Good point and I did think that myself. I'm guessing that there might be something else to the story.

    Do you have boot2 Bootmii installed? If you aren't sure, how many times does your drive light flash at startup?

    Can you power on your Wii using the Wiimote?

    Do you have a savemiifrii? If you do, try accessing recovery mode and post your results here.

    Can you sync your Wiimote?

    Based on the information you provided and assuming nothing was left out, it sounds like you have a bad BT module. This can be confirmed by attempting to access recovery mode with a Savemiifrii.

    If you can access recovery mode, you indeed have a bad BT module.

    Full brick would = can't sync remote and can't access recovery mode.

    Here's a guide on disassembly: http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-modchip/...-your-wii.html

    The bluetooth module is located at the face of the Wii near the sync button and is attached to the motherboard.

    here's what it looks like:



    FYI You may just need to reseat the existing BT module as they're known to come loose.
