My Wii stopped working
I was having a problem with my Nintendo Wii which was that the games wouldn't start and then the wiiflow stopped working also. Whenever i started it a black screen appeard almost full of codes starting with "exception (DSI) .........".
I changed the HDD from WBFS to FAT32 and also connected the Wii to the internet and updated the wiiflow to the latest version. The wiiflow was working once again but when i started a game the one that started was the Wii Sports which is always in the drive. I took it out but the games just wouldn't start.
And then i decided to do something which was my mistake: i tried to update the Wii from 4.2E to 4.3E and install the IOS80. Since the update wouldn't start, an error always occurred even with all the options disabled in the priiloader - system options, i decided to use the DOP MII app and then i started the update but the black screen with all those codes starting with the "exception (DSI) ......" appeard again. I turned OFF the Nintendo Wii and turned it ON but then nothing appeard on screen, no image and no sound. I've tried to press the reset button when i turn it ON but the priiloader menu dosen't appear.
Do you think my Nintendo Wii Bricked? If yes, what can i do now?
DOP Mii is the best way for people who don't know what they are doing to brick their systems (with using menu themes as a close runner-up).
If you have priiloader installed and you can access it by holding Reset on power up, you may be able to fix it.
If you have a NAND backup and have bootmii installed as boot2, you can fix it.
If the answer to either of these is no, then you've got yourself a new doorstop.
Had you come up us before you started messing with menus and DOP Mii, we would have told you that your mod is likely out of date or incomplete, thus the DSI problems. Remodding your system would have most likely gotten it working, and we would have given you a link to a guide to do that.
Are you saying that there is no way of fixing this problem? What if i talk to nintendo? Would they be able to fix the console? I could just say that this problem happened while the update from 4.2E to 4.3E. In fact, this is what i was doing in the DOP Mii. I've bought the nintendo wii in 2010 so the warranty has probably expired and i don't even know where it is! Will i have to pay?
Nintendo will probably charge you more to fix it than it would cost to replace it, if they will fix it at all. They will know that homebrew has been installed when they analyze the system.
The nintendo repair assitance is the only solution? What will they do that we can't do? Do you think they will replace some hardware?
They will probably flash the nand. You own a nand flasher and know how to do it? If so, by all means go ahead. If not, it would be cheaper to buy a used Wii from craigslist or ebay. And despite what you may think, no one here is just stringing you along waiting for you to ask two or three more times before we decide to tell you how to fix it..... You junked your Wii, nothing more to be said here, time to own up to it and move on.
+1 to the sentiment. We never like to see a Wii get bricked or die.
