No Video/Black Scrren Remote Works. Console Seems to Work.
I bought a Wii on EBay that would "not accept disc." The label on the Wii said RVL-001(USA). I took the drive out and it worked in another Wii. I put another drive in the first Wii, which I knew was bad with a read error, and hooked it up to the TV. The video was black and white and not very sharp. Finally went to settings and it said it was a 4.3E. Looked at countries and there was no USA so I selected Australia since it was at the top. Finally decided to format the Wii memory and after that screen rolled. After it powered down I powered it back up and no video. It gets some kind of signal because my TV changes from "no signal" to black as soon as I power the Wii on. Plus the remote gives feedback when I point it and scroll over the Icons and I can blindly click and here it and the DVD spins constantly so the console seems to be working.
So did someone mod this to make it 4.3E since it was in a USA case or did the swap the case top? Any ideas how to get video back since I would guess this is a PAL console on an NTSC TV. It had video until I formatted it. What gives?
Any help or advice appreciated.
