    so id be seelling this wii for parts

    the wiis region is PAL and is boot2 compatible. it is able to boot backup dvd disks.

    i will have the serial number of the wii up by tomorrow night

    Does anything come up when you power on the wii?

    Here is some info on the different types of wii bricks. Take a look through them and try to let me know which one would be closest to what you are experiencing. I will try to help you along the way. Maybe you can save it rather than losing it. price tag on a full bricked system may not fetch you much at all.
    Good luck buddy.

    Code:
    Types of Bricks
    Semi/Partial Brick
    
    A Semi/Partial Brick occurs when a System Menu update from the wrong region is installed on a Wii or some resources have been otherwise damaged, breaking some (but not all) of the functionality of the System Menu. Typically, games will still boot but the Settings menu will not work -- this prevents the system from healing itself with an online update. These cases can be fixed by installing a newer version of the System Menu from a disc of the correct region, or with any other tool that can modify the System Menu.
    Banner Brick
    
    A Banner Brick occurs when the user installs a channel with an invalid banner (wrong image size). With this type of brick the system will freeze after the Health and Safety screen and may display a "System Files are Corrupted" error message. This can be fixed if the Wii has previously had BootMii (as Boot2) or Preloader installed, otherwise it's the hypothetical equivalent to a Full Brick.
    
    Since boot2 is intact during a Banner Brick, any user who owns a pre Q4 2008 Wii with BootMii installed (as boot2) can access BootMii regardless of any corrupt WAD installed. From here they can access the HBC to uninstall the broken channel.
    
    NOTE: Uninstalling the incorrect channel may lead to further damage, so users should be careful.
    
    Alternatively, if the user has Preloader installed, they can use it to access the HBC and uninstall the broken channel.
    
    NOTE: Uninstalling the incorrect WAD may lead to further damage, so users should be careful.
    Full Brick (System Menu)
    
    Generally speaking, a "full brick" occurs when the System Menu refuses to boot for any reason. There are two typical symptoms of a full brick:
    
    1. The Wii displays an Opera error message instead of the “WARNING SCREEN" when the Wii boots and does not check the disc drive for a disc before displaying the error. Because of this it's impossible to fix using software unless you have BootMii installed (as boot2), or you use a Savemii Dongle with an autoboot disc.
    
    2. The Wii displays nothing and you are presented with a black screen. Because of this it's impossible to fix using software, UNLESS you have BootMii installed (as boot2), or you use a Savemii Dongle with an autoboot disc. In some cases the latter will be unable to fix this brick.
    
    A broken Bluetooth Module will present the same symptoms, but can only be fixed by replacing the module.
    Full Brick (IOS)
    
    If the Wii NAND filesystem is corrupt, the System Menu's IOS is missing or invalid, or the System Menu executable is missing or invalid, then the system will refuse to boot and nothing will be displayed on the screen. Depending on the exact cause of failure, Preloader or BootMii/boot2 can fix (and are required to fix) this sort of brick, assuming they are installed and the system boots far enough to run them.
    
    A broken Wifi Module will present the same symptoms, but can only be fixed by replacing the module.
    Low Level Brick (LLB)
    
    A LLB occurs when part of the boot process is corrupt -- boot1 is corrupt, or boot2 is corrupt. Since boot2 is required to be working and able load an IOS before the system can run, any errors in this process will render the system inoperable. A LLB cannot be fixed with software and requires hardware modification to be repaired.

    Do you still, in fact have BootMii installed as boot2 --- or did you botch that? If so, do you have a NAND backup? If no NAND backup but you do have boot2, look here. You may also want to look at ShadowSonic2's other BootMii thread here.

    um i do have a NAND backup and im am quite sure bootmii is still installed, before it brikcked it still had the option to uninstal boot2 and i definetly didnt do that, the thing is when i turn the wii on it doesnt flash twice, so i dunno the savemiifrii could be an option ? but even if i do unbrick it it wont be virginized will it ? because thats wht i need and obviously it doesn work and im actually really hapoy with selllin it to jdj2002

    I dont get it! Someone comes along and offers you a reduced offer because the wii is bricked which could possibly be easily fixed either by you or someone that can provide a wii unbricking service.

    Why don't you just give fixing it a go, in the end you may get some more cash for it.

    because the store i would like to trade it into wont accept wiis that are modded and they find out straight away when they update the system, i would like it to be worry free, i guess i could sell it on here but for how much for ? im just sick of doing all this hacking stuff , it always ends up being way harder for me then wgatthe guide originally looks like and i dont have the time anymore

    To fix that is easy, and if you'd read the material you'd find it easily within your capabilities --- provided as always, you read and follow. At a guess, you're having issue with reading and following.

    the thing is when i turn the wii on it doesnt flash twice,
    This is either because you took an update and the Wii was updated to Boot2_V4 or you have the Bootmii folder on your SD card. Try taking out your SD card and see if the light flashes twice. If it does then follow the guide that nightstah linked you.
