    Wii Won't Boot to system menu (most of the time)

    Recently, (within the last few days) my Wii will not boot to the system menu. All I get is a black screen (when turning the system on, the screen does flash like it's going to come on, but the health and safety warning never shows)

    I read to unplug the power cable and plug it back in, and that DID work once, but now I cannot boot it again.

    I have not deleted any important (sub 100) IOS, and the problem did not occur after making any major changes.

    A wii-mote can turn the system on, meaning the green power light will come on, and the disk drive flashes blue ONCE (so I don't have BootMii as boot2 X_x) and I can hear the drive starting up. however, the remote will not sync with the wii (it simply turns the system on, and then simply flashes)

    Any Ideas on what the problem could be?

    Do you have Priiloader installed? Have you tried SaveMiiFrii to see if you can get into the system recovery menu?

    Don't try to do an update or anything, just see if you can get into the recovery menu. You could also try and ping your Wii if you know the IP address. My first thought is a bad WiFi module.

    Would the wii even register or connect to my wi-fi network before it booted to the system menu or brought up the health warning?

    No it wouldn't unless the problem was with your A/V encoder and then you might be able to ping the Wii. See if you can get savemiifrii to bring up recovery mode.

    - If you can access recovery mode the issue is likely with your BT module.
    - If you can't access recovery mode the issue could possibly be a bad wifi module or some other hardware failure.
