    Bricked Wii - No Video Signal

    Hi all,

    Am looking for advice on how to fix my bricked wii. I've searched various forums and found some answers, but it's been so long since I modded my wii, I don't remember verbiage, details.. etc.

    My wii will not start-up; it has NO VIDEO SIGNAL. It is soft-modded (I modded it sometime last year, I'm not sure of the version, etc.), and I am fairly certain I made a NAND back-up of it when I modded it.

    It was somewhat of a slow progression; it started freezing when I played a certain game (Just Dance 2, burned disk), and then I put in another game (Mario Kart, burned disk) and it worked just fine. Next time I used the Wii, it had no video signal. I kept messing around with it, and eventually the disc eject stopped working (the disc is now stuck; when I press the eject button, the blue light just lights up and stays lit up.)

    I have a feeling that the Just Dance 2 game messed up my Wii somehow; it may not have been a US-disc. Although, I am not certain what happens when you use an out-of-region disk.

    So that's my story. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

    How old is your Wii? What System Menu/region (guessing U for USA based on your post). Did you install BootMii, and if so was it as boot2 or IOS? When you power on the Wii, does the drive LED flash once or twice? Does the Wii powerup with the wiimote? Do you still have the NAND backup?

    I bought my Wii on launch day. Not sure of system menu, but region is US. I modded my Wii last January (2010), if that helps. I do have BootMii installed, but not sure if it was boot2 or IOS - is there a way to check? I remember when modding, it made a back-up in case it was bricked (screen of green bricks). The drive LED doesn't flash at all; it turns on once you turn on the Wii and stays on. Wii does not power up with Wiimote. And yes, I still have the back-up I made when I first modded it (the one I mentioned earlier in this post) on my SD card.

    Do you get audio?
    It sounds like a hardware issue to me. The AV encoder perhaps?

    It could be a bluetooth module..... I say that since you can not turn on wii with remote.... I don't have more testing that you can do with out taking it apart......

    I'm sure our resident brick experts will have a say in a few hours when they are up.... lol.

    Not able to start up the Wii, so I'm not sure about the audio. I'll go with no?

    How would I go about testing that if I took it apart?

    You can power it on though. It doesn't really matter though, because I agree with emuhack; it is probably the bluetooth module (from what I have read before). I hadn't noticed that you couldn't turn it on with your remote.

    I don't know much about hardware problems, I'm just going off of past cases that I've read, so I could easily be wrong.
