    Hello, i have had problems with My flatmii.

    I was working on teh Driver software on vista x64 then bzzzttt

    |then|

    My T.V., Computer, Wii (partly) go rofl, rofl, DIED.

    so today i got a new TV and sent the Computer to staples.

    But i think i can salvage the wii

    the sound works, i can connect with the wii controllers, rumble works, channels launch.

    The only problem:

    No video.

    managed to load homebrew channel.

    and help here, I am willing to take hole wii apart

    i had isolated the hole flatmii so |hopefully| no short circuits.

    thanks in advance,

    Davess

    Edit:

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    i googled it and i found no use able information.






    Help?

    The video circuitry was probably fried. No one can save that Wii except Nintendo.

    It's nothing you can solve thru Homebrew. It's a hardware fail.

    Honestly, I don't know. I guess you could just say it was working normally, then it stopped displaying the video. And obviously hope that they don't notice the homebrews on your Wii! [​IMG]

    should be about $100 if they don't detect that you modified the console. if they detect it you could even by a new one. they'll charge you about $300 to repair a modified console: http://hackmii.com/2009/04/warranty/
