    Black screen but not sure if bricked...

    Hi guys,
    Well, yesterday the power went off due a storm... I wasn't home to unplug my Wii and it was on standby, now when I turn it on, it shows me a black screen :/
    All the lights are ok, when I turn it on, the disc blinks blue and everything, and I can connect the wiimote to it and feel it vibrating when I point it to the screen, but no sound or video.
    Also, It has installed homebrew channel, bootMii and priiloader but it was all working fine.

    What do you think? I don't think it's bricked, only it's sound/video output failure. But what do you think?
    Thanks

    A surge could've done it damage. You try component video/audio? Was BootMii as an IOS or Boot2?

    BTW: the thread is more appropriate here.

    @nightstah BootMii as IOS

    I had disabled system sounds with PriiLoader but now I managed to get into a channel and sound is actually working. I guess it confirms it's not bricked, right?
    I hope it's just the composite cable. I'll try to borrow one tomorrow
    Thanks, bro

    The composites on Wiis sometime go bad, yup. Let's hope that the case, but it sounds encouraging...

    Couple things of note here.

    First, if it was the same type of cable u have (red/white/yellow) it doesnt achieve the goal of testing the component output. You'd need a component cable like this one:


    You should also try it on a different television, as it is possible that the input might have been affected. Taking your wii for repair, you should know that they can detect homebrew, and if you take it to Nintendo they may charge you a ridiculous amount of $ to fix it.

    Uh, that's what I said originally (a component cable). I take it you didn't understand the terminology and simply tried to use another composite cable? Kids these days, lol

    I'm Brazilian, just thought component and composite were synonymous
