    Will not power on at all?

    Hi All, I softmodded a 3.4 wii a few months ago with a USB HDD for a friend of mine. They called me today and told me that the wii will not turn on all, no power lights whatsoever. They are not tech savvy and highly doubt they ventured into any menus that could damage the hack. They have 3 small children ages 6 down, who more than likely smashed or dropped the wii while being rambunctious. I haven;t seen the device yet, so all I have to go on is the news that it just will not turn on at all.

    Does this sound like a brick or something more physical?

    Could be the power supply. Unplug and leave unplugged for 15 minutes or so to see if it will reset. If not check with a multi meter.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    A brick will not stop the wii powering up. This is a hardware problem, not software.
    Try another power brick.

    UPDATE: I finally got my hands on this troublesome wii and plugged it into my entertainment system and it worked fine. We are replacing the power brick and I think that'll do it.

    Thanks for your various ideas.

    Cheers
