    My mates having a problem with his Wii, when he turns it on he gets a black screen.
    He brought it round to my house and plugged it in using my cables and everything worked fine, I assumed that the problem was the Wii-TV cable, so I gave him my cable that came with the wii, I'm using a component one, but still no joy.

    Any ideas anyone?

    forgot to add this is a recent problem, where previously the Wii has worked fine with this tv, and the scart socket is not faulty as his xbox works through it, rca plugs don't work either.

    If it happened randomly then bluetooth module/wifi module died.
    If it happened after he did a software mod or something or installed a wad then probably bricked.

    Deleted system menu/IOS? Use savemiifrii to find out if there is still a functioning system menu

    He could've done anything once he got it back. I agree with Plonk (if he hasn't tinkered with it), that it could be a BT module. I would check for a working sysmenu via Savemiifrii, just to eliminate that possibility. Not much point in trying the video side of things if the unit is a duffer
