    Wii, Black Screen with 3.0(JAP) @ bottom right hand corner of the Screen.

    Hi All, I hope someone can shed some light on this for me!?

    I've been given a Wii to look at to possibly repair, When switching it on, it goes to just a Black Screen, nothing more.. I did a bit of research on the web (as one does...) and I found that holding all 4 directional buttons on the D-Pad of a Gamecube controller can get it to a type of Recovery Mode... I bought 2 of these cheap china gamecube controller copies a while back and it works easy with them without taking it to bits, I get to a screen that says "3.0(JAP)" at the bottom right hand corner and as instructed from the various sites on the web, put a game in and see if it has an update, I decided to look around for a download of this 'Wii Recovery Disc' that was leaked at some point, I found it, burned it to a Sony DVD -RW and put it in, nothing changed...
    I then read more that the drive needs to have some sort of Chip to read the Writable Disc... So I swapped the drive for an older DVD Drive that had previously been Chipped with an old D2CKey. Now when I put this disc in, the disc spinns (and keeps on spinning) and the 3.0(JAP) dissapears from the bottom right corner... Now I'm just looking at a black screen again with the disc spinning... Is something supposed to happen? Is there some sort of 'DO NOT ALLOW DISC UPDATES' enabled in the D2CKey?

    Please help!?

    Cheers, Adam.

    Get a Japanese game with an update greater than 3.0 on it

    lol, i've got tonnes of Japanese games here... I've just put Ratatouille in and it did the spinning thing for a bit, I turned it off and turned it back on for the same procedure to try a different game and it now says "3.4(JAP)" at the bottom right hand corner, so I put Ratatouille back in and its doing the spinning thing again now with just a black screen... how long should I leave it like this for?

    Cheers, Adam.

    You likely have a bad Bluetooth module or Banner Brick. If you have a Banner Brick, you made things more complicated by updating the system menu to 3.4 because you wiped out all the Trucha IOS which means you can't run a recovery disc. Do you have boot2 Bootmii installed? Check the drive light at startup, if it flashes twice Bootmii is installed.
