    My 4.2U Wii is bricked...Please Help

    I was away for a week came back and my wii has a black screen when I press the power button. After press the power button, waited for a while, the wii theme sound plays but no video. I research this issue from this forum and tried many numerous troubleshoot but no luck. I also follow this guide too: using option 1 & 2 but no luck.

    My wii system was on 4.2U

    Please help if you have encountered this problem in the past. I have search this forum for answers prior to this post.

    Do you have bootmii as boot2 installed? (DVD light flashes twice quickly when you power on)]
    Do you have priiloader installed? (Hold reset when you power on to bring it up)
    Can you access the recovery menu using a game cube comtroller when you power on?
    How old is the wii?
    These things help us trouble shoot. Any idea what was done to it to make it stop working?

    Thanks for prompt response,

    -The DVD light flashes 1 time
    -I held the reset button after the power button was pressed nothing came up.
    -I have not tried the GC controller method
    -The wii serial number starts with LU36 (i had at least a couple of years)

    Was the wii on while you where gone fore that weeK? Sounds like a hardware failure.

    No, I always shut down the wii after playing it.
