Free Wii repair for Version 1 Wii
I called Nintendo and told them my console wouldn't show and image even thought the power light was green. I had actually gotten a low level brick with no bootmii or preloader. I said I lost my serial and the rep put me through and set me up with a FREE repair even though my Wii is really out of warranty. I removed the serial sticker obviously and will be shipping it out soon.
dude let me know if they replace it for free or what they charged i need to send in my wii but dont know if they unbrick the black screen will they be able to see hbc and charge way more.
OK i will when i find out

i would like to add, i was just given a bricked wii for free, called nintendo and even though it was out of warranty, they agreed to fix it for free. So im shipping it tomorrow, and we'll see if I get a new one back. If this all goes well, I got a free wii out of the deal..
I think it depends who is first person in Nintendi to get hands on console. Some people are unfortunately getting jobsworths and getting told repair will only be done at a cost due to hbc.
