    I have a bricked wii. When you turn it on, the DVD drive will initialize, but there is no video or audio. After rebooting about 4 times, the health screen finally came up, but then it just froze on there. I was able to recreate that event only once. I don't know if it was dropped or if someone screwed around with IOSes and whatnot. Anyone know what could be the problem?

    I have the same problem, but I never got to the Health screen. It stayed black for me- no matter what I do. Tried the SoftMiiFrii method and still can't access anything either.

    That happened to me. Do you have preloader installed? Its how I fixed mine. I used preloader to access the Homebrew Channel and then I ran Firmware Downgrader. It fixed it.

    this happened to me to. I had preloader installed and I couldn't even get preloader up! I sent my to nintendo. 75 bucks later I got a fixed wii. No questions asked about homebrew or hacks.
