    You prolly shouldn't ship it to Nintendo. Not sure if there'd be some consequences, but using illegal .wads ends your warranty anyway, they'll see what you did to the machine...

    I'm so high, I don't even know!
    does preloader load? if yes then run the HBC and run wad manager and install a new 3.2 system menu

    then you'll have to reinstall preloader and... softmii?(not sure if you were using softmii but i recommend it)

    nothing loads just a black screen when i turn on the system... and i have the version .25 preloader is there any option where i can go into recovery mode? by holding some button with a GC paddle? with starfall installed?

    also i can fidget around with menu's i hear my paddle vibrate but that's it... and i choose something (i think it was the news or weather channel...

    maybe your tv or the cable from the wii to the tv are bads, because if you have a brick theres only a black screen without anything else

    If you can feel the vribrations of the menu then I'm pretty sure you need to plug the cables in better.

    yeh i think theres something wrong with your av cable or maybe your tv cannot handle the signal if there is just sound but no display. Try your wii on another tv and see if it's the same

    It's not the cable, same thing happened to me. Without preloader, you're screwed, but since you have it, unplug your wii, plug it back in, and turn on the power. Quickly after that, hold down the reset button Then launch your wii in safe mode, and go to any region changer in the homebrew channel and repeat the 3.2 install. That's what I did, and it now works for me!

    Can you get anything to display at all? maybey the cable is bad or the input on the tv is. If it's niether of those you will need to find some way to erase all the stuff you've done to the wii and send it into nintendo for repair.

    Oh?

    Why can't it be a concrete slab? And I hope Preloader does save the day.


    There should be a PL man smiley

    And since when do bricks still allow the systemmenu to load, just without the video... oh nevermind

    Semi brick is when you can not access the settings.


    If settings work fine, you don't have a semi brick

    Just keep on testing. Plug it into a tv, then another, see if the tv is the problem!

    Then try a cable, then another, see if the cable is the problem!

    (Repeat process until you know what's wrong lol)
