    Thanks for the response. My A/V cables are good, tested with my own wii. It's completely the wii in a low level brick state...question is, how do i get it OUT of this state.

    I'm still stuck. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Unhappy

    I am having a VERY similar issue and it seems that no-one has yet been able to figure out what is wrong or how to fix it...

    1) I had a virgin 4.0U Wii with a Wiikey2 (yellow sticker) mod chip.
    2) I installed a FlatMii (1.1) and downgraded to 3.2U and installed HBC. I did not install BootMii or anything else like that.
    3) I was going through my games and trimming them (since 3.2U with Flatmii supports trimmed .isos) and verifying that they would work trimmed.
    4) While testing: Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (NTSC-U) (untrimmed) said it required an update so I ran the update. (With my WiiKey2 before, all updates from game discs worked perfectly with no issue).
    5) The update completed and Wii reset itself to a black screen.
    6) I tried SaveMiiFrii GC Controller method, still black screen with no output no matter what disc I tried to load (autoboot or not).

    -The disc drive does spin up and tries to seek when I have the FlatMii disconnected.
    -The System does turn on from a WiiMote's power button but will not synch to any of them.

    If anyone has anything else I can try other than resoldering on the wii mainboard (shudders) please let me know, otherwise I may have to buy a new Wii (ouch $$).

    That wii is still in a low level brick state. I ended up replacing it and throwing bootmii on it. i've now got a nand backup that i could use if i wanted to reflash the nand, but i'll probably end up just eating the loss and selling it for parts or sending to nintendo for a fix.

    I have similar problem, no audio or video signal reaching my screen. WAD installation caused it, i put a different dvd drive in it and still the same, however the old dvd drive works fine on donar wii. therefore i believe that the problem is with the mainboard (the nand is stored on the chip) i have bootmii installed and it loads, i unfortunately do not have a working nand backup. i believe i read somewhere that bushin or bushlin could do a nand for you if you sent him one from another wii with your wii nand keys. i found it, but cant find it anymore.
    only other solution which i am trying is buying a wii with a damaged dvd and swapping over my drive to that wii. Ebay:- they are making around 50-60 gbp.

    p.s im softmodded,
    now is there any way to load anything from bootmii other than a nand backup. ( i deleted homebrew so i cant go there) but is there a program out there that could be added to the sd card and loaded via the sd card option in bootmii?????????

    ive tried loads and i really do believe that the mainboard is just not going to allow access!!!!

    You can use cboot2 cboot2.zip

    Still haven't tested this, although I hear it loads a modded version of wad manager instead of bootmii and will require you to backup your bootmii launch files.

    Tested briedly and this cboot2 loads a custom wad manager 1.4 probably with GC controller support. I mean what more could you ask for?

    Genius!!!!!!

    ok my wii had no video or audio signal. i could only get to bootmii screen and couldnt restore my nand as i didnt have one, i downloaded the cboot2 that Tealc99 told us about. i put all on my sd card but it wouldnt boot to bootmii. i then replaced the armboot file in the bootmii folder for my own armboot file.

    Bootmii loaded, i then made a backup of my nand using bootmii i then restored my nand using bootmii.
    restarted wii and wad manager loaded yes!!!!
    NO!!! no gamecube controller support!
    YES found a wad manager with gamecube controller compatibility.
    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    i just used boot.dol from this download and deleted the one i had from early download.

    cboot 2 loads then wad manager. you need your wad files from here on in i think.

    p.s i deleted my system menu and dont know if there is a way to recover? but at least there is hope for anyone who has bootmii installed as boot2 and are Bricked and dont have a nand??? We wait

    This will only work if you have bootmii installed already as boot2. On my wii, no such luck.

    The best way to recover after System menu deletion is to simply install the same System Menu Wad.

    I hadn't tested the cboot2 at length, it booted direct to 1.4 Wad manager on my Wii.

    To determine which System Menu you need check the list at Wiibrew System Menu - WiiBrew

    I have a limited selection in my signature, while Dogeggs has some others.

    Good luck.
