    My friend just trade me his broken Wii for a sd card. He said that drive does not work, so I was thinking about making it hd playable. I just noticed that the whole unit does not work. It starts, lights are on, however there is only black screen on tv (no menu). I do not think that that he was trying to ever hack it, so what my options are from here?
    Anyway to unbrick it?
    Maybe I should send it to Nintendo? How much it would be to fix it at N?

    You say you traded an SD card for it? Good deal.

    Sell it on Ebay as broken.
