yeah, but as there is no way around it I suggest you pack your stuff grab 15 bucks or less and buy one, doesn't need to be an original just one with a gc plug..
edit: I guess you realized or know how to use the power and eject button of your wii in the bootmii menu to try to run the wii menu (Wii symbol), I guess it would go black like the start without the sd card.
Another idea: is your wii turned off properly, red light ?? if not (yellow light) hold down power till the wii turns off completly, try to boot again without the sd card plugged in.
What about priiloader? Do you have it? on the black screen does it say the firmware version?
changed the bluetooth and hey presto it works fine
tried the faulty bluetooth in the wii that i took the good one out of and it just gets a black screen so i need to buy a replacement now for it.
many thanks guys you have been a great help :)
Thanks for reporting back Mark, and glad you got it sorted mate.

i have fitted the new module but all i get is no signal ?
the wii turns on
i cant turn on by the remotes because they were sync to the other wii console
