    My Wii's acting funny

    Don't know if my Wii's bricking, but today I was using it then I shut it off but when I turned it on a black screen just came up and nothing else and the wiimote wouldn't sync to it, I had to shut it off and on 5 times before it snapped out of it, anybody ever experience that?

    Moved to a more appropriate section.

    It might be the first signs of a bluetooth module failing.

    Yeh I can turn it on with the wiimote, but if nothing comes up then it's not in sync anymore and I got to push the off button

    Keep an eye on it. It sure sounds like a bluetooth module to me. If that is what it is then it will eventually quit working all together. You can get a new module fairly cheap from eBay. They are not hard to change if you are handy with a screw driver. However, you will need a triwing screwdriver to open it up. Those are fairly inexpensive too.

    That sucks, but if that's wat I need to fix it then I'll get one eventually, I just installed a couple WADs the other day I thought maybe one of them could've messed it up but they worked good, Also my WiiMC app on the HBC stopped working too it reloads after 8 seconds, but anyway I was hoping my NAND backup or something would help but hopefully it'll live for a while

    Do this. The next time it freaks out on you then try to turn it on with the remote. If it doesn't then it's probably a bad bluetooth. If it does turn on then it's possible it's a WiFi module. Either one will cause a black screen at boot when faulty.
