HBC only – Wii menu and games present black screen. *SOLVED*
Hello fine people,
My Wii would not switch on the other day. I had been using a third-party power supply. Now it switches on when I use the Nintendo power supply and stepdown (US Wii living in the UK). BootMii was loading fine, but when it loads the system menu it goes to a black screen.
I could not access the HBC, either, so I restored from my NAND backup. Now I can access the HBC, but same problem with the system menu. I also cannot play games via Gecko. I have tried many methods to restore my system menu to no avail.
Most notably I have tried using the latest (14.5) version of DOP-Mii. I have tried a few other methods, but I'm not sure if the rules allow me to mention them. Safe to say that a full menu install has not fixed the issue. I found a way to install 4.3 outside DOP-Mii, which for some reason does not list newer than sys menu 4.2.
Still get a black screen, although notably my drive light lit up the last time I booted the system menu. Annoyingly I also cannot sync my Wii Remote with the console – I lost sync when I restored from NAND. Therefore I only have the Wii face buttons and a GameCube controller.
So the question is: what's actually wrong with my Wii? Is it definitely a software issue? Why did the NAND restore not work? How do I fix it?
I can tell you that I have also got the IOS70 v6687 installed and I have tried re-installing it to no avail.
Thanks for any help you can provide. I will answer any questions you have.
