    Yes, exactly.

    Wait, I was right (before changing my mind and saying I was wrong)? I knew it!

    Doesn't sound like AV encoder directly, there would be other things to check first and are other things it could have been - we would need to limit down things first before deciding its the AV encoder.


    First step, you need to strip the Wii and boot the board with no modules attached, no drive etc - just leave the drive led connected so you can see if its still solid.

    I suspect it was some weird nand corruption or a faulty wifi module, what ever you have done since is a separate issue. This is because the AV encoder usually goes with a power surge, lightening strike or dropping the wii while powered. Not just from normal use (again, generally speaking).

    Noted, thanks. It was just a little friendly banter between thread and PMs with Emu and I, lol.

    I have successfully taken apart the wii. I've stripped it down exposing the mother board. Now, how am I suppose to test the mobo to see if it is faulty?

    Also, just curious but how does disconnecting the CD drive helpful in determining what is wrong? Is it the case that if the drive was bad, and you disconnect it, the system should start up?

    Thank you all for your help so far!

    Disconect drive and try to boot..... then if no boot.... take wifi module and bt module off..... very very very very carefully..... then try to boot...... to see if you get any change on the screen instead of the no video....

    Let us know....

    Wii won't boot with nothing attached. You would still need Bluetooth and wifi attached to get into the system menu.

    If you have bootmii as boot2 you can still get into that with no modules tho.

    You can get into everything with no DVD drive attached however.
