    Ok so I needed to trade Wii friend codes with someone and I needed to enable Connect24 which I previously had disabled for security reasons. My Wii has a Cylowiz modchip and and have installed some form of Bootme. Well, I forgot to turn connect24 off and my Wii has been sitting a few day. I had the blinking, you have a messege, disc light but I never bothered to check it. Well today, I wanted to play Wii and my Wii won't start. It appears to power on and the disc drive makes noise but there is no picture or sound on the tv. The disc tray blinks...

    What could have happened?

    nintendo will not have bricked your wii. there hasnt been one report of this happening to anyone at all, i dont think they have the legal right to start bricking wii's without at least a little bit of warning.

    what i suggest you do, is unplug it for a minute or two and give it a quick shake around, thats what i do when it stops working lol

    and what do you mean, you installed 'some' of bootmii.




    try taking out the SD card then starting the wii.

    Fast reply, I edited my post to say "some form of" bootme. Meaning I don't know which version it was. Also I added that the disc tray light blinks. I will try removing the SD card.

    Bootme was installed months ago.

    So removing the SD card did the trick and it boots. So is it a bad SD card then?

    Feel dumb making a thread with such and easy solutions. Thanks for the help though!
