    Question Is there a tutorial for Unbricking a Wii?

    Just as the title says, My wii was bricked, and I'm getting no video Output. Powers on, even goes to standby when power button is pressed, put no video/audio. I have the Nand.bin and Keys.bin files, but cant find the bootmii folder.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I did install bootmii as boot2, but after backing up the wii, I only kept the Nand.bin and keys.bin files. Is it ok to use the bootmii folder from a different wii?

    Go to the Softmod ANY Wii guide, Other Desperate Options spoiler in Chapter 1 and go thru the steps for a boot2 Wii. See if you can at least see the menu. If at that point you can, continue with the guide and do ALL of the steps, system menu 4.1 install, everything.

    Still no video output. The wii remote connects, but no video. Going to try it blind, lol.

    EDIT: Nothing working. Even tried loading a bootmii from a different wii, with the NAND and Keys of this one to no avail. Any other options available, or is it just spare parts from now?

    Just throwing this out there but; maybe your AV/Component cables are shot? Or possibly the plug on the Wii or TV? You may want to try different cables and possible another TV (if you can) to rule some of that out.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    So I've got no audio/video. Will try hooking up my WiiU later using those video cords.

    I would, just to make sure it's not the cable that's dead. The next thing I would try would be a different TV to rule out the jacks on the TV.

    This is something I've been seeing a lot more frequently. When the Wii was just a few years old most issues were related to software/mod issues. Now we are seeing more and more hardware issues, likely due to the age/frequency of use of said hardware. I for one am going to have to change up my "diagnostic style" a bit.
