    Bricked wii even after reformat

    Hey guys,

    So my Wii got bricked after I hacked it. After many attempts of fixing it, I decided to just forget it and reformat my Wii clean. Long story short, I reformatted it and it worked for about a day and now its bricked again. I really can't win. Does anyone know what I did wrong? I thought once you reformat the wii it should go back to its state when it came out of the box. Why is my wii still bricked??

    Thanks guys

    Format will delete settings, channels, and saves. Part of the softmod is still there...
    When you say your wii is bricked we need more details.

    When i try to turn it on, I get no signal. Once in a while, if i play around with the reset and eject buttons I can get it to go on.
    But for the most part it does not go on. So how can I get rid of the softmod?

    It doesn't sound like a softmod problem, but a hardware problem.

    I agree with toby1978! It sounds like a hardware problem, but I'm no brick expert!
    So my advice would be, be patient and wait for a brick expert to try and help you out!

    Yes the wii motes turn on the system but its still not loading the the main menu. It just reads as no signal.

    Do you have a NAND backup?
    Does your drive light blink twice when powered on?
    Tried different av cables? Component cables?

    You can make a savemiifrii to check if it boots then.

    If it does not boot with a savemiifrii then it could be a bad wifi module.
