    You've turned hacks on with Preloader?

    May one of those cause the problem.
    Press RESET while hit POWER as quickly as possible.
    If you don't come into the Preloader Menu..

    Than this is a really weird problem

    As you have been swapping cases recently I would suspect a dislodged bluetooth - especially if there was a video signal (i.e absence of a no signal message on your tv) and your wiimotes didnt sync.

    This can happen with pre-loader if you have done this:

    Set pre-loader to use an IOS that doesn't work with the current system menu EG: setting any IOS other than 60 for 4.0 etc etc
    Then setting pre-loader to boot to the menu as default.
    This results in a black screen.

    If this is what you've done then do this:
    Power off the Wii.
    Hold reset and keep it held while you power the Wii on.
    Pre-loader will appear, now change the IOS to whatever your menu requires.

    Just posting incase this is what you've done, hope you get it sorted.
