Can the wii be turned on with the wiimote?
No I have 4 of them and none will connect even when useing the connect buttons.
Heading out so I will be on later to test some more.
Thank you for the help thus far.
Sounds like it could be a bad bluetooth module, it would also explain no one knowing what had happened lol
Are they simple to test? Like can I take one off a working wii? Soldering? I for one would not have even thought BT module because of the black screen...hope that's it.
I see a BT forsale and after reading this I have hope "Brand new genuine Nintendo parts
- Replaces fried/broken bluetooth wireless module in Wii video game consoles
- Fixes "black screen of death" upon power on (commonly caused by bluetooth not initializing)"
It is the BT module gone. Great call Pob3008. I live in Canada is there a nice recommended place to buy a new BT module from? I have 2 WII's apart now lol it's been fun tho.
I know u can pick em up cheap on ebay but thats about it mate
OK will have a look. BTW in the next few days donation to the site will be made.
Thanks so much for the shove in the right direction.
Glad u got it sorted
