    Bricked Wii - doesnot start/blank scren

    Hi all ...

    a buddy of mine bricked his Wii (which he got about 6 months ago and played for 2-3 days, he tried to hack it to play backups and bricked it. Doesnot remember what exactly he did). He gave it to me for free .... if I can fix it, its mine

    I personally have no wiihack experience so I donot know what kind of brick this is, or if it is fixable.

    Here is the description of problem:

    when I try to boot it (press start), it goes to a blank screen

    upon holding reset while booting, it goes to a preloader screen, which is this:

    Here is the settings screen:

    If I select installed file menu, it goes to a jumbled screen like this

    he had the sd card which he last used .... I guess the hacks.ini file contents might help, that is attached herewith.

    Do you think it is fixable? if so, what should I do ?

    Thanks a lot.

    Well, you have preloader which still works, so you should be able to fix it. Maybe a dumb question, but won't it work when you just select System menu? Try taking a look at the Unbrick Your Wii (Banner Brick) tutorial and Everything You Need To Know About Preloader

    if I click on system menu, it just goes to a blank screen (waited 5-10 mins, nothing appears)

    if I try to load boot.dol from the menu (preloader), an error screen appears

    Installing Preloader/Priiloader on 3.4 fail brick.

    Check the Bricked Issues section for a guide on preloader Brick Fix by Mauifrog, this will fix it.

    This thread no longer needed, so closed.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
