    HBC only Wii menu and games present black screen. *SOLVED*

    Hello fine people,

    My Wii would not switch on the other day. I had been using a third-party power supply. Now it switches on when I use the Nintendo power supply and stepdown (US Wii living in the UK). BootMii was loading fine, but when it loads the system menu it goes to a black screen.

    I could not access the HBC, either, so I restored from my NAND backup. Now I can access the HBC, but same problem with the system menu. I also cannot play games via Gecko. I have tried many methods to restore my system menu to no avail.

    Most notably I have tried using the latest (14.5) version of DOP-Mii. I have tried a few other methods, but I'm not sure if the rules allow me to mention them. Safe to say that a full menu install has not fixed the issue. I found a way to install 4.3 outside DOP-Mii, which for some reason does not list newer than sys menu 4.2.

    Still get a black screen, although notably my drive light lit up the last time I booted the system menu. Annoyingly I also cannot sync my Wii Remote with the console I lost sync when I restored from NAND. Therefore I only have the Wii face buttons and a GameCube controller.

    So the question is: what's actually wrong with my Wii? Is it definitely a software issue? Why did the NAND restore not work? How do I fix it?

    I can tell you that I have also got the IOS70 v6687 installed and I have tried re-installing it to no avail.

    Thanks for any help you can provide. I will answer any questions you have.

    Updating to 4.3 definitely wasn't the solution. Can you still access Bootmii? Are you able to access recovery mode with savemii or savemiifrii? You likely have a hardware issue and it sounds to me like a bad bluetooth module (a bad bt module will cause a black screen when entering the system menu).

    Thanks for replying.

    Yes, I still have BootMii. I'm back on 4.2 now, I think.

    I am trying to procure the relevant screwdriver to open up my GC pad. I will update with progress when I get it. Do I need any other hardware for SaveMiiFrii? What screwdriver do I need to open the console?

    Thanks for your diagnosis, too.

    BT or Wifi module.

    Do as streamlinehd said to work out which.

    Savemiifrii works = BT module
    Savemiifrii doesnt work = Wifi

    I managed to get a screwdriver and use SaveMiiFrii. It comes up with "4.2(USA)".

    I have attempted to re-seat the bluetooth module. I think you just have to pull up the end closest to the centre of the mobo and then clip it back in to place (the other end appears to just be taped to the board). Is this correct?

    Anyone know how many of the parts are vital to have connected? Unscrewing everything took FOREVER. I don't want to have to keep screwing it together and apart. I've connected everything bar some of the shielding and the battery is hard to hold in place. Bit unsure which way up the battery's meant to be inserted. The WiFi antennas are not screwed into place I assume that's not important.

    You just need the heatsink screwed on (which holds the board in place) and the wifi and bluetooth.

    You do not need the metal shield nor the battery

    OK. I've followed your guidance. See image.



    Looks like I need to get a new BT module, then? Screen still black.
